  1. Chris, will be carrying 2 camera bodies, 105mm lens, 60mm lens, 10-17 Tokina, 45 degree Nauticam viewfinder, 15" laptop and 2 Retra strobes for the most part and a few other camera & laptop accessories. Yes, that thread is pretty long and some of the bags from that thread are no longer being produced, which brought me to ask a new question.
  2. Looking for a new camera backpack to carry my camera equip and strobes when traveling. Wanted to see if anyone is using this backpack or have other suggestions. Lowepro ProTactic BP 450 AW II Had actually found one that I liked but it is no longer being produced. Any suggestions or comments on this bag is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Warren
  3. Was thinking of trying some of the super macro when we are able to get back in the water. Based on my research the CMC-1 can work well with the 60 but was hoping it might work with the 105 to try and limit my purchases at this time until I have tried it. Can the CMC-1 be used with the 105 and the crop sensor D500 camera?
  4. Adam and Alex, In your discussion you noted that Inon had introduced a viewfinder for the Nauticam housings. Do you know how their optics compare to the Nauticam viewfinders? Also how will this Inon viewfinder compare to Nauticam's price point?
  5. Pavel, I have one of the original Nauticam TTL converters that I purchased when the D500 housings came out. Will I need to replace that converter with a new one to work reliably with the Retra Pro V2.5 strobes?
  6. Hey Rob, Yes, it is still available. Warren
  7. Have two Inon Z-240 Type 4 strobes for sale that are in very good condition and were last in the water in November 2019. Each strobe includes extra o-rings, battery cap, straight mounting ball and 3 diffusers (-3, -1.5 & -.5). Never been flooded. Asking $400 plus shipping for each strobe. Have a Subal DP-SWB Type 3 - 6" port that has not had a lot of use for $325 plus shipping. A Subal FP-FC105 type 3 port for $225 plus shipping.

    Kit Items Value

    Sorry, I left that detail off. They are Type 3 ports.
  9. Not sure if this is the right forum for this and if it is the wrong forum sorry and admin please move it to the right one. But was thinking of maybe parting with some of my kit items that I don't use very often and was wanting to get an idea as to what they maybe worth. Subal 6" Dome port Subal 105 flat port with the nob on the port. Both items are in very good shape. As I said above not sure if I really want to sell them at this time but some RL issues may require me to.
  10. Very nice shots! Thanks for the comments, still undecided but everyone's thoughts have helped.
  11. Wanted to get some feed back on these two lenses. Looking at adding one of them to my current kit in which I just recently "had" to purchase the new D500 and a Nauticam housing due to an unforeseen situation! I mainly use my 60mm and 105mm lenses and to a lesser degree my 20mm. Have mainly been doing muck diving lately but have a trip coming up that is less muck and more wide angle action. Wanting to be able to take decent wide-angle pictures and also some close-up pictures without having to change lenses when on a reef or wall. Also which variations of these lenses would work the best with the D500?
  12. Thank you for the responses!
