  1. Interested, did the housing and camera sell ? I have the same combo and considering selling myself
  2. Yep, I agree. I have been in touch with them. Pretty expensive for 4000 lumens by the time they are delivered, but they look very nice. I cant really see however much on the web in the way of independant review of these lights by users
  3. I have been sniffing around information about the Fisheye Fix Aquavolt 7000. They look great. Max depth rating is 100M I am looking for lights that I can take to about the 130-140 M mark. I tried taking Sola 1200 video lights to about 130 last year, and simply could not get the to work beyond about 90M, even if they were switched on in shallow water. They survived, but the depth just seemed to interfere with the switch. I wonder if anyone has taken the Fisheye to that sort of depth, or has experience with other video lights that they would be prepared to share
  4. Absolutely. Really just a splash unit, but one wonders if they may continue the trend. Wont be offloading my original Nikonos bodies in a hurry !
  5. For goodness sake. Wouldnt have dreamt http://www.dpreview.com/previews/nikon-1-aw1/2
  6. Well, mine has arrived Great camera. Suspect my love affair will be enduring, but there is one very major issue for uw use On land, using a non IS lens, the standard battery lasts about 12-15 minutes. Yes, you read it right In UW, with an IS lens, with the viewer left on and a few pushes of the autofocus button it will be even worse This unit is enormously power hungry To make his work uw will require either a quantum leap in battery technology or a power source sitting in the housing If you think I am exaggerating, then have a look at Phillip Bloom's review Not sure how this one will be solved
