  1. I believe wetpixel member blibecap can rebuild your battery pack, if no one has one for sale. You might send him a pm.
  2. The best place I have found for help with lightroom is the forums at lightroomqueen.com They worship lightroom there, and usually have an answer for questions. http://www.lightroomforums.net/forum.php
  3. You will find that adding floats to the bottom of your housing works quite well, if done properly. I recommend using zip ties to try it.
  4. I would show the model and then do a short transition to Liquid Cold. The Liquid Gold is in your face way too much. IMHO
  5. Here is a system for your consideration. http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=43040
  6. Send an email to Bill at this site. I'll bet he can help you. http://www.uwcamerastuff.com/contact_us.htm
  7. Perhaps Ikelite has a supplier in the Red Sea area.
  8. I would start out with a much cheaper UW system. I'd buy a used system. There is a lot to go wrong with these systems. If nothing else, get good insurance.
  9. I wish you the best of luck in finding a rental for these strobes. If you want to buy them, your odds of success improve. If you don't need the video light feature, you might seek out DS-125 strobes, as I believe they are more common. Good luck.
  10. I found an image from doctor mike's stolen camera, serial number 0970601694. Boy, was I excited. Sadly, it was an image that was posted by doctormike, but it was an interesting test of this program. http://www.gadgettrak.com/camerasearch/ind...;submit=Find+It http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=25553
  11. Impressive! This camera is going to be some serious competition for Canikon. Maybe Nikon will put a bigger buffer in their next DSLR. 10 frame RAW buffer in the D7000 is starting to look pretty small.
  12. My bet. Ikelite will be the first manufacturer, followed by Nauticam and then Aquatica. 12 frames per second ( unlimited ? ) would appeal to me. I was taking pictures of cliff divers yesterday.
  13. My bet is Ikelite will support this camera. I think the other housing manufacturers will hold off until the camera is throughly tested. The spec are impressive. I don't know what Sony's lens lineup looks like, and that might me the limiting factor for underwater use.
  14. Getting rid of the mirror slap noise is something I am really looking forward to. I can hardly wait until all cameras get rid of it.
  15. An unlimited sync speed would be a very good reason to consider the Sony A77 for underwater photography. If that turns out to be true, there will be strong demand for this camera. I am sure Ikelite will respond favorably if there is strong demand. (Not to hijack the thread here, maybe we should start a new one) As far as size goes, pocketable is the size I desire. I know that is a pipe dream for underwater photographers, but for other photographers, Sony is getting closer to that. For example, the Sony HX9V. I know it won't satisfy professionals, but it is a nice, pocketable camera with lots of features for the average photographer. And, it has incredible video.
  16. As a Nikon shooter, all I can say is I expect Sony to be the number 1 camera maker in a very short time. They put out some impressive cameras. I presently own the Nikon D7000. I think it will be my last DSLR. DSLR's are too huge, and require too much baby sitting to protect them from thieves. Smaller cameras are in my future, and they will probably be Sonys.
  17. I dove with Flamingo Divers many years ago. Nice boat, few divers. Totally happy with them. http://www.flamingodivers.com/info.php
  18. I don't think there is any difference. I'd use the internal reader.
  19. Not to hijack the thread, but, WOW! Those are some great photos Alex.
  20. I won't use anything that might flake off in the camera.
  21. I am happy that you got your new housing, and that you are pleased with it. I hope you have great experiences with it, and that you share some of your photos with us land-locked divers.
