  1. Man, i would so agree! Something like undercurrent offers, but an index to look up all reviews. Undercurrent has saved me from several bad operators... Allan
  2. I'm sure that every underwater photo person with housing has had the pleasure of finding any one of the following non disaster things happen: Lens cap on Memory card missing or memory card filled Lens not set to correct position for focus Buttons not aligned Battery dead Battery not in Strobe batteries in backwards All can be avoided with pre dive check-so why does it happen to me? Allan
  3. Dustin I really enjoyed the two videos you posted and your choice of music was excellent Allan
  4. This is/was the best series yet! Especially the 'myself, neigbor, wife' etc. I often ask myself, "why do i do this?" Does anyone really care? Well, I guess i and you folks do. Allan
  5. Thank you everyone for all of the valuable info. Allan
  6. Hi I tried a search and I couldn't find anything posted I've dived the Carribean for many years mainly because it was relatively close to the East coast and a short flight. I realize now that if I don't plan a trip to the south pacific or Indonesia, or Wakatobi soon, I may never get there. I'm worried about jet lag and setting up a large camera rig without making stupid mistakes because of fatigue. (been there done that!) What do you folks do to combat jet lag after a 20+hour trip? thanks Allan
  7. Hey Bill I just bought (less than a year ago) the inon 45. nice as it is, I have trouble night diving with it. I'm also afraid that the Nauticam may be much brighter... Allan
  8. First time posting any pics on wetpixel. Belize Aggressor November. Right after hurricane, bad vis. Boat took on bad fuel, just a tough trip all around. Still better diving than in the NY snow! I should mention that the Aggressor fleet compensated us by giving a generous allowance to our next trip in April on the Cayman Aggressor. Very good of them, we think. This slide show has music. thanks for watching Allan
  9. I was just on the Belize Aggressor boat and have been using the 45 degree finder on my nauticam housing for the d90. i have about 75 dives on the 45 but at night using the Inon Z240's red filter and 105 macro on one of the night dives made it seem just impossible to find a creature because the light was so dim. So frustrating! Yet i agree, it seems on many creatures, the red light seems to disturb them slightly less. Allan
  10. Steve I always look forward to your pics and your reviews are absolutely outstanding! I'd love to dive with you one day. Allan
  11. I have a Nikon N90 35mm camera body and an Aquavision housing with macro ports and wide acrylic dome port, zoom gears, extension rings etc. THIS IS A FILM CAMERA. Looking for any offer at all, or a donation to a school, just to cover shipping costs and maybe a couple of bucks. Anyone interested in antiques? Allan
  12. Although it is a slightly different topic, I had purchased several Transcend cards for my Nikon D700-a 32gig and 2-8 gigs. i bought them online because the price was 'right' compared to other brand cards. I was in a helicopter over the Grand Canyon when the disk failed on me. I returned the card to the seller and they promptly replaced the card N/C. I was in Curacao when another Transcend card failed=luckily i only missed one dive. Called Nikon to find out that Transcend was not one of their 'approved' cards and that my report of failure was not unusual. They recomended several brands including SanDisk. I never thought that it would matter what brand of card one used... Allan
  13. Ken Really appreciated your very thorough report. We are considering this area next year and your advice with Singapore airlines could be very helpful. Especially coming from NYC area. Some of those photos were amazing. I especially like the pigmy seahorse shot just to mention one. Allan
