  1. Last year we had 20C, sometime in July and August - did not miss, at all, some of the Mediterranean diving destinations.
  2. Norfolk. I shore dive in the Sheringham area on the chalk reef. The water temp. stays at about 19C pretty much the whole summer, same as in the Canary islands.
  3. It is nice and warm at the East coast at the moment - water temp. is 19C and 5mm or 7mm wet suit is fine for, at least, an hour in the water. I have both, so no issue using either. I use 5mm gloves (Scubapro) or 3mm - no issues operating my camera in a Subal housing. Tried the 4th element gloves and did not like them - personal experience.
  4. It is easy to service and change all o-rings of your whatever underwater housing. I have already serviced 4 Subal housings and the last one was for Nikon D90, serviced in 2019. The service kit was 97 euros, which I bought from Subal. It is worth the effort, so do not hesitate to give it a go.
  5. I have just measured the porthole of my type 4 housing and the diameter is 110 mm, so yours should be 100 mm.
  6. Take a look at this explanation: SUBAL PORT MOUNT IDENTIFICATION
  7. I had Subal ND2 and originally comes as type 3 and I believe, it is impossible to fit type 4 in it, even if you want as the opening and internals would not allow the conversion. However, I have Subal ND7100 and another one for Nikon D90, both type 4, so I can measure the diameter of the porthole and let you know.
  8. Impressive photography. Thanks for sharing.
  9. The funny thing is that when we look at the gross picture, you and the divers on the boat have done much more damage to the ecosystem over there, than the poor guide who discarded his cigarette packet in the sea. I include myself in your boat, as I am not much different than you.
  10. Hi all, Does someone have an adapter to accommodate Subal 3 type ports to a Subal type 4 porthole housings and wants to part with it?
  11. Thank you for sharing with us. I agree with Alison, it is an important issue that affect us all and more people should see it.
  12. I am just guessing, but if you want to shoot at f1.2 or similar situations, the lowest power of the strobe can still overexpose the foreground.
  13. Nice video - I rally enjoyed it, considering I am coming over there to dive the East coast in late February.
  14. Retra is $829 - really curious what I am going to gain for the extra $. Reliability is another concern. Inon proved mostly reliable in the past, hope the Retra is not going to lag behind.
  15. Two Sea and Sea YS-110 alpha strobes with diffusers. Both in very good condition, never been flooded and no corrosion present. £260 each or £500 for the pair. The items are in Peterborough, UK. Cheers Pete
  16. Hi all, I am trying to figure out an adaptor to accommodate Inon 45 viewfinder for my Subal ND300/ ND200 housing. I will be grateful to anyone, who has done that and is willing to share their experience. Thanks in advance
  17. Two Inon D-180 underwater strobes for sale! Both for £340 or each for £180. Both are in very good cosmetic condition and working order. The necessary o-rings, Inon lubricant and two 1.5 stop diffusers are included. Small piece is missing from one of the diffusers (can be seen on the picture), but I didn't have a trouble using it. The strobes have never been flooded and are corrosion free. Buyer pays P&P.
  18. What port system the adaptor will work on?
  19. Thanks for writing the book Alex, When do you think, you will receive the book and be able to post it? Cheers Atanas
