  3. Hi, I would like to hear from anyone who has had any experience with the Sony NX30 and Gates housing. The specs are appealing and the low light performance seems to be a good choice. Thanks, Lance
  4. The marks go all the way around the perimeter of the glass moving toward the center at varing amounts as per the pic and not restricted to any particular location. It's definitely on the outside so there is no chance of the lens cap off gassing. I tried a commercial grade water stain remover at 50/50 and then 100% (as per the instructions) and it made no difference which is how I came to arrive at the conclusion it's not a mineral buildup. I have paid particular attention to looking after the housing and the port. It's a big investment and one I hope will last me a lot longer!! I'd say it has done around 90 dives mostly in seawater and a few in freshwater and has always been rinsed and dried after. Regards, Lance
  5. I'm not sure how it's sealed......The edge of the glass seems to have been ground to rough it where it's glued into a grove in the support plate. I have studied the marks and they are definitely only on the outside and go all the way around the port so it's not just in one place. I hadn't noticed the marks before and it was only when I held it up to a light when I was cleaning it that I saw them for the first time. Regards, Lance
  6. As suggested by Jean, I rubbed a small area with the marks with some hard water stain remover and it made no difference. I'm now waiting to hear from him what to do next......... Regards, Lance
  7. I've been servicing my Aquatica 5D MkII housing. When I started cleaning the Mega Dome Port and held it up to the light I can see opaque marks emanating from the outer edge. I tried rubbing it off thinking it could have been a water stain but it seems to be under the coating. It's got me concerned as I have had the port for a couple of years now and have paid particular attention to looking after it. Anyone know what it could be and what can be done about it?? I've tried emailing Aquatica but the email bounced back!! Thanks, Lance
  8. Thankyou to everyone who has inquired about this system but it is now SOLD Regards, Lance
  9. There has been some interest in the setup but it's still here waiting for a new home. Everything is charged up and ready to go........
  10. I am selling this Professional UW Video System as I have a lot of overseas traveling this year and I have decided to get a smaller compact system. It has not had a lot of work and the camera counter is showing 31hrs total time. I'd like to sell the complete system but will sell the camera and housing without the lights, arms, brackets etc if you don't require them. Sony PMW-EX1 Camera All original accessories, cables, charger and manual. 1 x 8GB SIS memory card (unused) 2 x RAW SIS - SD Adapters 2 x RAW 16GB Memory cards 1 x RAW SD - USB Adapter 1 x Sony BP-U30 Battery (std battery) 1 x Sony BP-U60 Battery (long life battery) Gates Nanoflash mounting kit, cables and manual (Nanoflash not included) Gates EX1 Housing SP44 Std dome port with cover (never used) SPW44 Super Wide dome port with cover and buoyancy collar (in perfect condition) Moisture alarm Hydrophone Diopter set Gates Seal Check system EM43 High Res monitor Original weights Manuals 2 x Gates/Pelican Cases 2 x TillyTec Video 2000 Lights Ultralight arms and mounts 2 x TillyTec MPL-TTII Li-Fe batteries (Gives 3 hours lighting) Carry bags and chargers The buyer pays for the shipping. I have an International TNT account and can get extremely competitive rates if needed. Price for the whole system $15,000Au Price less the Lights and arms etc $12,500Au It's a great system and has served me well for the time I have had it. Everything is in perfect condition and would suit a new buyer so this is a bargain at less than 1/2 the new price. If you'd like to know anything about any of these items or would like any more pics please email me at lance@closedcircuitdivers.com.au Regards, Lance
  11. No matter how deep or how long you intend to dive you ALWAYS carry bail out gas. The size of the tank will depend on the expected duration of the dive and how long the decompression commitment should you go into deco. Some agencies don't allow Air Diluent Divers to undertake decompression diving until they step up to Mixed Gas or Mod2. But some do!! Make sure you get the most for your money and Make sure to check ALL your options before you part with the folding stuff!! Contact me if you'd like any further info. Regards, Lance
  12. Hi Jean, It's the newer type II and it's way too loose. Regards, Lance
  13. I just received my new 18771 Focus Ring today and went to fit it only to find it is too loose and freely slides over the lens ring. Has anyone else had a similar problem with theirs?? Regards, Lance
