  1. With the Nauticam Nikon D800 and Sigma 15mm lens my choice would be to use the ZenDP230 dome. But I would like to use a smaller dome for pelagic snorkel photography without strobes. I own the 6"nauticam acrylic dome. However the lens shades touch the inside of the dome. Should I use a small extension ring or cut the shades of the lens. Is there maybe a better small dome choice then the 6" Philip
  2. Drew, I might check out Planet Dive. This would be my first trip to the Philippines. Is there any wide angle in that area? or should I just focus on macro? Philip
  3. Hi Stephanie and Greg, I'm planning a trip to the Philippines next month. I'm debating which destination to go to: Anilao or Puerto Galera. I believe Anilao is just south of Manilla and P.Galera just across ? What did you mean with dive interference? Philip
  4. 2 batterie chargers for sale. eight cells 1 hour Rapid Charging /Soft Charging or Conditioning Mode. Both chargers include box plus manuals . Asking $110 ( This includes shipping continental US)
  5. I bought all of my equipment at www.Backscatter.com since The Nikonos V . Nikon D100, D2, D300 and D700 with Subal and Aquatica housings. Berkley's crew is awesome. Lifetime support!! Berk, Do I get a discount on my next rig?
  6. Insurance is a must. There are 2 major choices: Dan and DEPP I highly recommend DAN. DEPP is almost impossible to reach. They frequently don't return phone calls . And in my experience they quit communicating with me after I put a claim through. They never paid the promised replacement but they did had the nerve to automatically renew my policy???
  7. I just got my first Aquatica Housing for my D700. What extension do I need when using the Sigma 15mm Fisheye with the Kenko 1.4 Teleconverter. This with the 9.25" Megadome? Philip
  8. I purchased the lens, disregard my request Philip
  9. Thanks Barry I purchased the lens.
  10. Does anybody has a Nikkor 16mm fisheye lens for sale in mint condition?
  11. Do you still have the Nikkor 16mm fischeye for sale?
  12. I just got my Subal and D300 ripped off. Great combination with the Tokina 10-17mm. Don't forget a 105mm and maybe a 60mm for macro with macromate if possible. Have a great trip.
  13. I went to Komodo last year. The Backscatter crew talked me into getting the Tokina 10-17 for that trip. I used this lens instead of my 12-24. The Tokina10-17 was definitely a better choice . Great for wide-angle and split shots. Philip
  14. Brand new in box . This is a replacement lens for the one I flooded. Warranty, and all items included in box. Asking $750 including shipping. OBO
  15. Thanks Alex My book isn't very specific to determine which Flathead it is. I will try the internet or an other book.
  16. I am not sure what the name of this fish is. I took the image in the Komodo area Indonesia. My thoughts are either Crocodile fish or Flathead( Long-snout,Celebes or Horned?). any idea?
  17. I just received "Nudibranchs of the World" in the mail.Excellent book

  20. Marcy, I believe that the macromate can only be used with the 105Vr port, not the 60mm port
  21. Sorry to hear Ozmarlin Last month during the Digital Shootout in bonaire I had a simular situation. I flooded my D300 and 12-24mm lens within seconds of the dive. I assume the O-ring got pinched. i was not a happy camper. I did have DEPP
