  1. Getting tanks filled this morning and getting a new saga flip port, I spotted this beauty in the dive shop with an attractive price. I have searched youtube and other dive forums without any luck of reviews. Also looking to avoid a bunch of tariffs being added from gear built in Asia-Pac, so if you have any experiences and some sample clicks I would appreciate it. I am shooting the Sony a7rIII with 16-35mm F4 G lens, but thinking about moving to the 12-24mm, after shooting a friends Nauticam 230mm dome port and lens in Ginne Springs last December. Cheers, Christian www.DivingMeCrazy.com
  2. I love mine on my NA-EM1 housing, but it may take a few dives to get adjusted to using it. After that happens you'll be ok. I leave mine attached but yes it can be removed easily. Worth every penny and hope this helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have the 45 on my NA-EM1 housing, and love it. Small learning curve to get used to it but once you do it's hella easy. I love how I can get lower and shoot up easier. Worth the investment. Sorry I have no details about the Inon view finder. Best of luck. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. You can try one touch WB and use your hand as a "grey" card below 20 ft. Works pretty good for me. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Great feedback Phil! Looking forward to using this new Olympus glass underwater. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I can only imagine how frustrating that must be. I have never had this happen, but maybe try updated the firmware again?
  7. Nice overview! Does the camera have a tray or just mount in the housing directly?
  8. Setting up the Shutter & AEL/AFL button functions Menu Gears “A” = AF/MF > AEL/AFL > S-AF > Mode 3 OK Setting up Fn1 to AFL only Menu Gears “B” = Button/Dial > Button Function > Fn1 > AEL/AFL OK Now Fn1 will S-AF, you can now let go of Fn1 and the AF spot will not change when you recompose and shoot. Hope that helps you out.
  9. I had a similar issue with an acrylic lens port. The black gaffers tape worked perfectly. I only have this issue on my wide angle lens. Hope that helps http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000QDRRIE/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  10. I decided to pick up the bags recommend in the article I posted at the start of this thread. I will try and do a dry pack and then weigh them out this weekend or next. The thinktank backpack is really nice and even when extended does not screen heavy. I think going to Bali will not be the issue but let's see how leaving Bali will be. I really appreciate all the good feedback from everyone. Please continue to add hints/ tips!
  11. I will be flying through Hong Kong, so thanks for that hint. I will reach out to Cathay Pacific to make sure 2 carry-ons are accepted.
  12. Great advice so far. So nobody has had a chance to pay a little extra for the weight on the carry-on if it was questioned? I like hints jplaurel gave to challenge the gate person. I agree it is a risk that is part of the hobby, and I do have my gear insured.
  13. Funny tdpriest We are going to pay close attention to the weight for sure. We booked Cathay Pacific, so we'll see how it goes. My wife is a diver but does shoot underwater, so we are going to spread the gear around a bit. Thanks for all the hints and comments so far. Looking forward to other comments and feedback.
  14. you can save up to four "MySet" configurations. This might be what you are looking for Paratom
  15. Great shots Phil!. I really like the sharpness and DOF with this lens. Would you assume that this port will also work with the new M.Zuiko 7-14mm PRO lens which is coming out later this year? Thanks for sharing!
  16. I just read this article The Packing Guide for Underwater Photographers|Underwater Photography Guide and was wondering what other underwater photographers do. I will be traveling from the US to Bali later this year for the first time, so the timing of this article was perfect. Currently I use a Porter hard case (44lbs loaded), and this works great traveling to the Caribbean since it fits nicely in the overhead bin. When reading about airlines weighing this bag/ case that has me worried. I did see that the airline has clear weight limitations for carry-on bags. I use a Olympus E-M1 with a Nauticam housing, 2 ports, 2 strobes, 2 SOLA lights, and arms. So my question is, do you agree with the article, or do you have different recommendations? I am looking forward to your feedback! Here is a link to the case I currently use http://portercase.com/main/product_info.php?products_id=73
  17. Greetings, I have been lurking on these forums for awhile and really like what I see. I started diving in 2010, and I have since caught the diving bug. I started shooting with a Panasonic DMC point and shoot, and after a few upgrades, Olympus E-PL1 and EM-5. I am now shooting with a Olympus E-M1 in a Nauticam housing, and I am very pleased with this system. I am always looking to learn and share in my never ending photography journey. I have posted a few images on my site www.divingmecrazy.com. Cheers, Christian
