  1. No sorry I want to sell the housing first.
  2. Hi I am selling my Aquatica AD90 housing plus ports and rings suited for 60mm macro and tokina 10-17 (minidome). The gear is in good condition but hardly gets used anymore. I have a spare replacement o-ring kit for the housing, it is probably overdue a service but has never leaked. Would consider selling body and lenses as well plus two inon z240 strobes. Based in Melbourne Australia. Make me an offer. Cheers John
  3. Funny!! They are pretty inconsistent with their rules. I sell steel wire rope and travelled with a sample of 6mm wire rope which went right through however they confiscated by box tape!
  4. Easier two dive with two strobes, as the weight is balanced on your rig...
  5. Know what your bag weighs and what you have to take out to make it 7kg's and make sure it does not exceed the dimensions. Use a light bag with less padding and bubble wrap your gear which is lighter. When you go through controls put whatever will put you over 7kg in another bag like a small backpack and your partners handbag. You are normally alowed to carry a personal item like a pc bag which can hold a lense, camera body etc...pass by the guard dogs and repack again into your camera bag...find out about bateries, I have been on Emirates and the one way they said batteries had to be in luggage and the other way the wanted it in my carry on....
  6. I am happy with RAW (NEF) but spoke to a guy whom said DNG was the way forward as it is open source and therefore a better way to save files in the long run. I never considered it so I wanted to check it out here instead of just agreeing with the opinion of the guy I talked to! If there was no disadvantage then I would convert to DNG for the sake of it, but since I don't think NEF will disappear and I will waste storage space with DNG...there is really no point in converting on my opinion... Thanks for your input!!
  7. No expert here but your camera would be making a calculation based on the fact that your camera flash will fire. However the light emitted by your flash would not be intense enough, which is where your strobe kicks in. It is still possible to over expose with your strobe set to higher than required.
  8. Thanks Bill, I did not know that. Sounds like a bit of a waste of space...
  9. Hello!!! Is there any disadvantage to image quality and editing ability converting from RAW (NEF) to DNG in Lightroom? If this has been discussed elsewhere the I'd appreciate if you could point the thread out to me as I searched but did not find anything on WP. Thanks!! John
  10. Housing only Shipping from Australia Good condition and never leaked $1,100 plus shipping from Melbourne Australia or make me an offer!!!
  11. Fair enough Alex, it is a bit of a showy piece however you are still getting D4 quality images from a camera half the price which is appealing to me....plus it is smaller...
  12. I am just wondering why anyone would rather take another full frame camera under water if this has the best sensor Nikon offers and more compact than a D800, 600 or 4?
  13. Hello WP! Have not stuck my head out here in a while....but I have a baby boy to show off for my recent lack of interest in anything else!! I am surprised at the lack of excitement over the Nikon DF and cant seem to see interest in it here. I would have thought this compact version of the D4 would be getting more attention, especially for its ease of manual adjustments.... What am I missing??? Cheers John
  14. Thats pretty awesome!!! Like the music too...makes it quite playful!
  15. Karen....sorry but I still cant see it....
  16. I will have a crack and identify this as a glass shrimp...hehe...
  17. Steve implied in hobby... Webster dictionary: Hob´by A subject or plan upon which one is constantly setting off; a favorite and ever-recurring theme of discourse, thought, or effort; that which occupies one's attention unduly, or to the weariness of others; a ruling passion. Sorry for being a smartass!!! Passion, hobby or addiction...i do it for fun and like Storker, every now and then i get an image that I feel good about and then it all makes sense....to the weariness of others.... Dive in Storker!
  18. Say cheese! That blenny is smiling at something....Nice image Damo!
  19. Only time will tell!!! It is a fun hobby though!
  20. Thanks Christian, I think Cameras Direct plus a 3 year Mack warranty is the way to go for Aus having shopped it around a little. Not the cheapest but what I'd feel most comfortable with.
  21. We did flight with Air Pacific, was over and paid an ammount same as what we had predetermined ourselves online. http://www.airpacific.com/baggage/international-baggage-allowance There is another link for domestic. Be aware that in domestic flights, due to the small plane sizes your bags might travel after you and you might get weighed with your hand luggage to determine where they seat you on the plane. Dimension is more critical than weight for hand luggage as you are weighed as an entity. Try to have the correct change as we had to pay and wait for our change at the gate which we gad to chase up a couple times before getting it back....I dont think there was any mallice, they are just very laid back!!
  22. It really depends what settings I forget to turn on before I get in the water! Whilst there are many i dont nornally use, I am sure I would miss any if they were removed Mainly trigger, on off, af lock, review, af selector, aperture, shutter speed.... live view which i wish was not there as i only press it by mistake and quite annoying when everything goes black throught the view finder!
