  1. Unbelievable. My bright yellow storm case made it to Little Cayman and back with everything on the inside safe and snug. But the locks didn't survive the trip. First lock broke on the trip from Grand Cayman to Little Cayman. The shackle was still on the case, but the body of the lock was missing. The second died on the trip from Miami to SF. Same thing, shackle still holding on, body gone. Oh well, at least the trip was a fun one.
  2. ULCS DB-12 12" Double Ball Arm one SOLD. Only 1 left. Adding ULCS AC-USL Universal Spot Light Adapter and Ikelite PCa Clear #1531 (no batteries) $35 for both.
  3. I did a google search on PeliLOCK and found 3 versions, some with the same model number. The latest version uses a cable. But I think I am going to try these next.
  4. I have one brand new Sandisk Extreme 60 MB/s 32GB CF for sale. I bought two for the mail in rebate, but I only need 1. $150. (This is $144 for the memory, $4 for shipping (48 state US), $2 for using Paypal). This is about as an even split as I can manage.
  5. Locks arrived today. Locks going back tomorrow. These locks just fit on the case which is exactly what I wanted. Unfortunately, the person designing the lock put the TSA keyhole on the back side. With such a tight fit, there is no way to face the keyhole to the front. I tried the lock on two other Pelican cases. No access on 1520. On the 1510 with a shallow lid, the keyhole is accessible if the lock is installed with the body near the lid. If the keyhole was at the bottom like a normal lock, these would have been perfect.
  6. I would think that lifting a case weighing 50 lbs would also tell our would be thief that there may be something in there. I've gone ahead and ordered two locks. Hopefully, I won't have to use my insurance.

  9. Are you putting spare zip ties in your luggage? Does TSA put them on after each inspection?
  10. I have been using a Pelican 1510 Case along with a LowePro CompuTrekker Plus Backpack to get most of my laptop, camera and housing equipment to my final destinations. This year I dumping the Pelican 1510 and get a Pelican Storm iM2720 that should be able to hold all my housing equipment. I did a search on the Internet and found these locks - Model 6430 and Model 6435 from TamperSeal. The locks are TSA approved and have a much thicker shackle. Has anyone tried using these? One of my concerns is that these locks may have a "try and get me open" look to a would be thief. (If the case itself already doesn't do that .) I would use the smaller locks, but the shackles on the ones I have bend too easily. The cable ones might solve this issue. What locks are people here using today? Thanks,
  11. I haven't seen anything on the Aquatica Website yet. Jean, is there an update on this?
  12. Hi Donna, I decided to get the Aquatica. Mostly the decision was based on price. But the fact that I had the Aquatica A20 previously, still have the accessories, and the fantastic service I received from Aquatica, I really had little choice. I just purchased the housing on (cough) eBay. US$2900, free shipping, US$200 Microsoft Cashback (love it), US$58 eBay bucks also helped a little. Now I just need a lens other than the 100mm Macro.
  13. Thanks Chris. Not sure that a new thread is needed yet. I am about ready to get the Canon 14mm f/2.8 L II. Looks to be US$1875.00 shipped for one with a USA Canon Warranty. The Aquatica website has no information for which focus gear to use, could be the same as the Type I. Jean?
  14. Chris, the Canon 16-35mm you got was the 16-35mm f/2.8L II, correct? Have you had a chance to get underwater yet, or made a plan? I'm moving from 20D to 5D mk II although my progress is much slower. I bought the 50D and need to sell it and two EF-S lenses first. I am also going to use as much of my older equipment as possible moving from 20D to 5D mk II and so I will use be using the Canon 100mm for macro. I was considering 14mm f/2.8 L II, 15mm f/2.8 FE, 24mm f/1.4L, 16-35mm f/2.8L II, or 17-40 f/4L. From reading this thread, I'll drop the 17-40L in favor of the 16-35mm f/2.8L II. Is the 16-35mm f/2.8L II the best wide angle lens to use with the 5D mk II in the Aquatica Housing with 8" dome compared to either the 14mm f/2.8 L II or 24mm f/1.4L? And would the Aquatica 9" dome change which lens to get? I will probably only be able to get one WA lens and then I will need to save up for the 5D mark II housing.
  15. Hi John, Real bummer with the airline incident. As far as my stuff is concerned, I really don't think much will work other than the arms. I could be wrong, but I would think that only original Aquatica Handles will work for the housing.
