  1. I have a D6i mounted on my wrist and a Suunto Vyper mounted on the strobe arm. Both are paired to the same transmitter. I also have a SPG on a short hose bungee'd out of the way but accessible if the tank transmitter fails mid dive, which it has. I do my own "service" of both computers... very simple to do and the cost is only that of a CR2450 battery. Two small screws and you are in. Treat the O ring gently and it can definitely be re-used, just a whiff of O ring grease needed. The battery in the transmitter can also be changed, but requires a specific battery which Suunto sells with an O ring. These are available on eBay. The computer batteries are available at any pharmacy, and I always travel with spares, and a spare transmitter kit. A couple of screws, O ring grease ... Bob's Your Uncle. There are many detailed instructions on The Youtube. Ian
  2. I have gotten a few inquiries for the manual and schematic. I will repost these. Maybe Adam can enshrine them in a permanent place in the archives? nikonos 15mm service manual.pdf
  3. Agree with Tom, it's the same filter that came in a set with the 16mm fisheye. They are readily available on Ebay if you search under the 16mm Fisheye. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-L37C-Bayonet-Filter-AI-AF-Fisheye-Nikkor-16mm-f-2-8D-AI-Nikkor-15mm-F3-5S/273515796417?epid=1840600782&hash=item3faecfd7c1:g:ytgAAOSwB9Fbyf1y One of the ones (L37c) in the set is clear glass, and you can cut a small circle of Alex's Magic Filter and place it on the back of the glass. I attached mine with a TINY drop of lacquer at the 12 and 6 o'clock position and it works like, well, Magic:)
  4. Makes the Nikonos RS 13 conversion almost seem "cost effective":)))
  5. I agree with Interceptor... maybe it's a good thing. The cameras we have right now are awesome, and maybe chasing the latest/greatest is a fool's errand, especially given the cost of camera AND housing. Maybe money would be better spent elsewhere, especially post-Covid dollars? I think Covid has taught us all greater patience and tolerance. Maybe "tolerating" what we have is a good thing, (unless your business is selling cameras and housings). To me, the bigger question will be travel to photo destinations. Especially for the land-locked amongst us... ian
  6. That's the largest dome port cover I have ever seen at 1:54:))) What was the shark species? Beautiful work! ian
  7. You need a one inch ball mount, https://www.ulcs.com/index.php/products/universal-adapters
  8. Oops... Just noticed the post has been edited and the flooded gear is no longer listed:( ian
  9. Hi Pavel Hope you are well:) Could you post a few pictures of the flooded 13mm, especially the front and rear glass? Thanks ian
  10. Totally agree... peer review is the only valid way of validating claims and Biorxiv is not...
  11. I think Interceptor 121 may be correct... this might be a long process, but maybe something good will come of it. The world does generally seem to be coming together and maybe there are long term lessons we can learn for this, in many areas of human interaction. That said, and not trying to be unrealistic, but the SARS outbreak lead to rapid escalation of research activity, and bypassing of some regulations. (It's too bad we didn't learn long term lessons from that outbreak!).This is not without some risk, but people are pretty smart these days. I have confidence that the scientific community will get ahead of this. I saw this: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/2020.03.11.987958v1 This type of "treatment" may serve as a bridge until a full-on vaccine is on the shelf. One of many areas of investigation:) Fingers washed and crossed!!
  12. This is the single most useful aggregation of factual information I have found so far: https://ourworldindata.org/coronavirus
  13. Boletus Sobering indeed.... I just heard a CBC program on the situation in Lombardy and other parts of Northern Italy. It sounds very dire. The head of the Italian society of critical care was interviewed. His comment was the only control measure that will have any real effect is "social distancing". Forget the masks until you are infected, and gloves are of no use at all....False sense of security and possibly makes things worse. Wash your hands, but most importantly stay away from close contact with unknown people and stay away from mass gatherings... Fingers crossed for the affected people in Italy, and a cautionary tale for the rest of the world. This is NOT the 'flu' or a 'bad cold', despite what conspiracy theorists will say. In the end, concern about cancelled basketball games and cancelled dive trips will seem banal. ian
