  1. I am probably wrong, but don't all Olympus cameras have a 4/3 ratio, which makes 4 x 6 prints a painful cropped situation, and wastes space on the screen if viewed on HD televisions?
  2. The strobes are for sale on ebay. One is at this listing, and there is another listing as well. Hope this helps. http://cgi.ebay.com/Ikelite-DS-125-Substro...7#ht_500wt_1156
  3. The sooner we can get rid of that mirror slapping sound, the better. I know some people like the sound, but I am not one of them. Ruins way too many second chances at the shot.
  4. If that was my lens, I would send it back. It looks like a defective coating that could get worse in the future. I am just guessing, but again, that is my opinion. YMMV
  5. They may have a professional photographer on the stage. If so, I would just pay for the professional picture, and enjoy the moment.
  6. Generally, any housing/camera combination will be a cheaper choice than hookers. YMMV I have dove with the D300s in an Ikelite housing and found it to be good. I don't think you could go wrong with the combination you are looking at, except $5000 will not be enough. But then, that's what credit cards are for. Since the D300s is a couple of years old, you might find something used, and save some money for, let's say ....... lunch.
  7. The way buttons feel above water is way different than the way they feel below water. They are MUCH easier to push underwater.
  8. My best guess is the flip video would produce satisfactory results. I wouldn't trust my camera to an EWA bag.
  9. Now where did I put my Nikonons lenses It looks like orange filters ( UR PRO ? Magic Filter ? ) are being enouraged at Photokina as well. http://elai.smugmug.com/Other/Wetpixel/15m...372_PMQHi-L.jpg
  10. I knew Jean would take good care of you. Aquatica is a fine company.
  11. Thanks for a great video. I have also been afraid to try this, but now I feel much more confident.
  12. Have a great adventure. I'll look forward to seeing your results when you return.
  13. looks nice. So do your other items. http://shop.ebay.co.uk/johnnydepth69/m.htm...p;_trksid=p4340
  14. The Tokina wide angle port actually has a lock on it to keep it from rotating, above the water or below the water. It is different than all other Ikelite ports. http://www.ikelite.com/web_pages/udomesuperwide.html
  15. I think the position of the dome hood can be rotated if you loosen the allen screws on the dome hood. I've never triend to change the position of my dome hood.
  16. Fantasea housing announced. http://nikonrumors.com/2010/09/13/fantasea...lpix-p7000.aspx
  17. I hope live view on the new camera is improved. It is pretty much worthless on the D90 / D5000.
  18. Won't win any beauty awards. But if it has outstanding photo quality, I can live with it. Canon G12 and Panasonic LX5 are tough competition.
  19. That strobe will leak in that condition, if not now, soon. Good that you returned it.
  20. Any place that makes glasses should be able to cut your len's filter down to size, either for free, or for really cheap. Put an ipod screen protector on both sides of the center of filter to protect the fabrication equipment from scratching the surface of your filter. The fabrication equipment holds the lens in the center. The ipod or cell phone screen protector will prevent scratching.
  21. Please delete knotheads (pallavi) spam's post, and then delete this one. Thanks!
  22. Sony is looking pretty good these days. Last night I tried, and miserably failed, to take a video of my new kitten with my Nikon D5000. No auto focus in video mode. I know the new Nikons will auto focus in video mode. My next camera will have good video capablility, especially autofocus. We'll see what Nikon offers. You are right though, Canon seems to be quicker to innovate than Nikon. Canon is a much larger company. I'd like to stay with Nikon, but I, like the OP, am open to change.
  23. Cool ! Gotta give the rich folks something to spend their money on.
  24. Thanks for the tip. The Sigma 17-70 is a great lens underwater.
