  1. I'm normally a wreck guy but recently got a chance to spend 3.5 wks diving the Galapagos on a breather. What made the experience so unique was the ability to interact with all the critters "silently". Pete Mesley & Lust4Rust.Co has branched out to add "Aquatic Adventures" to the brand name with an inaugural trip to Galapagos guided by Jorge Mahauad of Galapagos Rebreathers. The diving was simply amazing with up close and personal interactions (so... many different critters that even now I am still in awe!)......it was that good! If you are a breather guy/gal (and even if you aren't) and want some great photo ops, or simply just take it all in, this is the place! Btw there are many very nice posts on Galapagos here....go read them!.
  2. If your a wreck diver and love shooting WWII wrecks as much as I do, this is a trip worth considering! Technically oriented diving aboard the vessel TAKA with logistical support from "lust4rust.co" Contact Pete Mesley at: 15972716_10154062283121965_3471872164257040848_o.jpg
  3. Hi Nicool The Gunilda is about 70m dark and cold...4C. To get the blue green water background would require very high ISO, and/or exceptional vis....maybe early season? The Windiate always a crowd pleaser and so photogenic! In general the Great Lakes fish tend to be skittish, but they are there from time to time. Visibility on the average 15-40m and great for photo ops. Come Join Lust4Rust for a great lakes adventure. check out Lust4Rust.CO or contact Pete Mesley (owner) Happy Holidays! steve
  4. Although this thread started in January, I thought I would add a few pics of this years trip with Lust4Rust.co to a wreck called the Gunilda, on the North Shore of Lake Superior. She was a mega yacht that sank in 1911 after running aground on a shoal and is possibly the most beautiful wreck in the great lakes!
  5. Sold the Sola 1200's the Sola 800 is still for sale
  6. Hi wetpixel'ers I have 2 Sola 1200 Video lights in used good condition with boxes, cases and chargers. Lights work fine, hold a charge well have narrow and wide beam. The chargers are fully functional but have cracks in the plastic (hence the green duct tape). I have found the lights to be a bit finicky when it comes to charging as they like the connectors to be clean without any corrosion, they also like to be charged regularly to keep them in top shape. I also have a Sola 800 Photo focus light in excellent (barely used) condition. It has a white flood and a red focus light. I would rate the sola 1200's in good condition and the sola 800 in excellent condition. I will split them up but prefer to sell the 2 sola 1200's together for 500 the sola 800 (no box or case) for 250. you can pm me or my email: stevehubbard@charter.net
  7. Price drop 1150 for wet pixel'ers essentially discounting what would have been the ebay commission.
  8. Sold the housing, sorry! Shutter count 5629! Sony NEX7 Mirrorless 24mp camera body Sony SEL 18-200 f3.5-6.3 Telephoto Lens (yep the 18-200! My favorite lens!)

Thanks for looking!
  9. Why yes! there is penetration, and some interesting artifacts such as telescopes, engine room gauges, and various cargos still in pristine condition. Fortunately, these era time pieces are protected by law and generally not looted by fellow divers.
  10. That certainly is a problem with tek diving, gear gear and more gear, but I do have to say CCR is especially nice in cold water since the breathing air is warmed by the chemical reaction of the scrubber. Drysuit heating technology has also made this much more comfortable as well. I am ashamed to admit that the great lakes are in my own backyard and I am just now discovering these gems. If you are interested, there is another trip this year, check out Lust4Rust.co for more info. cheers steve.
  11. I love this part of the wet pixel forum! It's a great spot to see some terrific pics and gather ideas of unique and exotic dive destinations (usually warmer ones)! But in stepping outside the box, I thought I would post a few pics from our trip last summer to Presque Isle, Michigan. The PI (as the locals call it) is a wreck divers paradise with stellar viz, pristine wooden 1800's sailing ships, and early 1900's steamers, submerged in the chilly and sometimes even brutally cold Lake Huron waters (mostly less than 200ft/60m). But if you are dressed right, i.e. drysuit, dry gloves, heated vest etc; you are in for a real treat not found in other parts of the world and well worth the visit! We did it with Lust4Rust.co diving excursions (noted for CCR/OC wreck diving in such exotic locales as Truk, Bikini, Sri Lanka etc.). We called it “Lust for Wood” so to speak.
  12. rarely used Nauticam Zen DP100 no scratches front and back covers 650.00 plus shipping rarely used Tokina Lens 300 + shipping 900 for both + shipping thanks for looking! steve stevehubbard@charter.net
  13. Ready to split up package, Prices negotiable for separate items. Zen Port, Zeiss lens, and adapter have been sold. New price for entire package minus the above 3999.00
  14. I realize that this may seem expensive but I assure you it is the accessories that come with this package that drive the price. The Zen DP170/Zeiss lens pkg was almost 2600.00 alone (see Reefphoto.com), the inon strobes 1000.00, the 45 viewfinder 1000 not to mention the multiple top side lenses. The dome ports and macro ports are included for every shooting occasion. When I added everything together at what I could purchase used separately on Ebay etc, I was well over 9000.00. That was unrealistic. I would consider selling the nex7/housing at a significantly reduced price since I know I could sell the accessories (inon, sola, Zen, 45vf) for more individually. I hope this clarifies the price. I am open to reasonable offers since I have purchased a new setup.
  15. I am selling my NEX 7 package that boasts the Zen DP170/Zeiss lens/port package from Reef Photo. It is about as complete a package as you can get. It is in good/great shape. 6780.00 USD obo. PREFER NOT TO SEPARATE 2 NEX 7 bodies Nauticam NA-NEX7 housing Nauticam 45 degree view finder Zen DP170 Glass Port and Adapter Zeiss Touit Rectilinear 2.8-12mm Lens 2 Inon Z240 Strobes 2 Sola video 1200 (AVAILABLE BUT NOT INCLUDED IN PRICE) 4.5 inch Nauticam Dome Port Nauticam Macro Port Vacuum Pump/bulkhead Lenses: Sony 18-200mm Zoom Sony 18-55mm Zoom Sony 55-210mm Zoom Sony 3.5-30mm Macro Sony VCL-ECF1 Wide Angle Sony VCL-ECU1 Fish eye Sony 2.8-16mm Wide Angle Zeiss Touit 2.8-12mm Rectilinear Various clamps and arms pictured. I prefer to sell the package as a whole, it is very complete and ready to dive. It has served me well and now time for someone else to enjoy the compact mirror less design with DSLR quality. Most of the pics are taken with the NEX except the ones showing both cameras. any questions please ask. international buyers pay all shipping and duties. I will ship free in the CONUS. Thanks for looking!
