  1. Have you seen the review of the ONEUW 160X? https://wetpixel.com/articles/field-review-oneuw-160x-strobe-by-alex-mustard The feature set for the Seacam 160D is very similar, with accessories such as a diffusor already available when it ships, which should be any day now. https://wetpixel.com/articles/seacam-announces-seaflash-160-strobe
  2. Except Alex Mustard posted this in another thread about adaptors for Nauticam ports on Subal housings: I regularly use Nauticam ports (including the WACP) on my Subal housings (type 4 ports) - I use an adaptor from Saga
  3. I am also interested in a WACP adaptor for Seacam housings. Saga has already made one for Subal. Perhaps they can do the same for Seacam if Seacam doesn't make one themselves.
  4. If you have a subscription, I suspect you forgot your password. I have Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop running on two computers without any problems or difficulty. If I have a problem, I have no doubt that I can call Adobe support and get the problem sorted, even if it takes a couple of hours on the phone. On earlier versions they helped me get discounts that I'm not entirely sure I was entitled to. Adobe is still pretty decent, they are not Google and for what you get their prices are reasonable.
  5. The Hotshoe connecter may look the same, but I think the way the two stobe bulkheads are wired is different in the Seacam. I have two 250s and use them in TTL mode. Seacam instructions are to set one of the strobes on Auto, and use the other to change settings from manual (any setting of the 12 there are) to TTL. The one strobe where I change settings is acting as the controller and the second (set to Auto) is following the same power settings. I think this is controlled by the wiring between the two bulkheads inside the housing. Stephen Frink would know for sure how it works. This feature is great since I can change between power settings on two strobes with a single switch. I can also set two different power levels for unequal lighting by changing the second strobe from Auto to a manual power setting. It should be possible to replace your Subal wiring with Seacam wiring to make it work the same as a Seacam housing. Although, that adds another expense. I do love my Seacam strobes. Cheers, Jon
  6. The Nauticam website links to a PDF (look on the extension rings page) that demonstrates how the extension rings attach to dome ports. There is a locking mechanism in the extension to connect it to the port securely. The other observation/question I would have is that it looks to me that extension rings cannot be shared between macro and dome parts.
  7. Thanks everyone for the responses. I should clarify that we fly from Seattle to Narita (Tokyo) on United, then AirNuigini to POM and Alotau. On United we have no problems, one carry on plus personal bag like a computer bag. It sounds from the responses that we won't be challenged at all POM to Alotau and since our bags are checked from Seattle through to POM, it looks like we only may be bothered when boarding AirNuigini in Narita. Thanks again everyone. Jon
  8. Hi all, I am travelling to Tawali Resort in PNG this October. The group leader informed us that Air Nuigini has a carry-on limit of one 12 lb. bag and no personal bag in addition to that. She has tried to find out how strictly this is enforced but has only been able to get 'official line' sort of answers that it is strictly enforced. I know that most photographers with housed SLR systems routinely carry-on 40 lbs or more. Does anyone have recent experience with Air Nuigini and know if they actually enforce the 12 ob. carry-on limit. I like to travel with a standard roller carry-on (Porter Case) and a Think Tank Urban Disguise computer/camera bag and don't want to lose them at Narita or Port Moresby when we transfer to Air Nuigini. thanks in advance for any advice, Jon Walwick
  9. Hi Martin and all, I notice in Martin's list Jon is confirmed. If that's not me already, please add me for both days. We should let Rick from Bandito know that Eric is particularly interested in Octos. Cheers, Jon Walwick
  10. On a PC it is easy to rename files from the command prompt. The following command will append "Yap_" to every file in a directory: ren *.* Yap_*.* This would change a file named dsc_001.jpg to Yap_dsc_001.jpg. If you're not at all familiar with the command prompt, you will want to know the command "cd" to change directories. cd "c:\My Pictures" will change to the "My Pictures" directory. No need to download an app, this is built into Windows.
