  1. is this the (from nikon site) AF-S VR Micor-Nikkor 105mm f/2.86 IF-ED ? I dont see the IF-ED and didnt know if that makes it different. TIA
  2. fwiw, I put them in my check through, it wasn't worth the chance to me. the other thing I changed was, to stop worrying about the $40 additional fee for a second bag, (the first is $25 on AA). I figure if I am going somewhere nice, and I cant afford the extra $80 bucks, I probably shouldn't go. Made packing much less stressful!!
  3. or do they have to go into my check thru?? I don't know and I am getting ready to pack. The last thing I need is to check in, give them my check thru bag, try to go thru security with the arms, and then they say, Hey you can't have those things in your carry on , they have to be in check thru!! TIA
  4. thanks guys for the insight!! I'll let you know how it goes!
  5. yes I made my adjustments in Photoshop, and liked what I saw on the screen, I did not like what was printed.
  6. Can I calibrate my system?? Where would I start?? TIA
  7. I have an Epson printer, I'll check the model number, Paper? just basic 4x6 gloss at bought at wally's world. My goal is to get it looking okay, and then take it someplace to have it blown up some so I can hang and frame. Thanks okay I checked, I have an Epson photo rx595 and I used HP premium glossy photo paper, inkjet, if that helps!
  8. Thanks in Advance. I've shot some photos at Sting ray city in Cayman. I am happy with what I see on the computer screen. When I print them out, the sand is not white, it almost has a blue tint to it (but the sand is white on my computer) Is it the paper? Is there a setting on printer I need to change? Not happy at all with the output. Thoughts??
  9. I flew in December to Grand Cayman, before I checked in, I asked a TSA guy about these (I have 160's) He gave me a WTF stare, like what was I talking about. anyway I had them in my carry on, and other than the usually hassles in Charlotte, I ddint have a problem.
  10. I have an Ikelite housing for a Nikon D300. When I travel I break it down, that is I take the arms off the polycarbonate housing, so its easier to pack. My question is, can the metal arms of the housing (not the arms for the strobes) be broken down any more? Can I take the 2 handles off, and basically be left with 3 straight pieces?? TIA
  11. how much in $us? and how much is shipping to the US? thanks
  12. I am planning on shooting in some merky fresh water. Probably be 10-20' deep, with 8-10' viz at best. It is a clean up of a lake, so I know there wont be any award winning photos, but maybe a few to memorialize the event. Anyway I have a nikon d300 in an ikelite housing with twin ikelite 160 strobes. Any suggestions on camera settings? to use the strobes or not? anything else I may need to know? thanks in advance!
  13. they take with their camera for a trip? I am thinking things like 'grease', magifying glas, lint free clothe, spare 'o' rings, screw driver etc etc? thanks!
