  1. Reviving this old topic. I use Scubapro Jet fins for drysuit diving. They are also fine with a 7mm wetsuit in colder water. However, I am going on a trip to the Azores in september. I've been looking into fins for there. I would normally go with booted fins. The freediving fins will probably have lots of power, but I am not a freediver. I would probably need socks as well. I broke my booted plastic Seac fins. I was thinking about Oceanic Accel as travel fins, but I have some doubts on the power, would they be ok snorkeling? It is mostly boat diving. Anyone has experience with those? its about 600 grams for a single one, so 1,2 kg for a pair. https://www.oceanicworldwide.com/us/accel-fin-color-kit/ Other options will be a bit heavier. (thinking about getting regular Mares Quattros) The open boot Quattro fins are actually heavier then the booted fins. That will be about 2 kg for the pair.
  2. not at aquacam Kees ? Or design and print your own.
  3. yes... I have a 3D printed double flip adapter for Ikelite modular port that I drew and designed myself, a thingiverse snoot for Ikelite DS125 and self designed knob extensions for both the Ikelite DS51 and DS125 strobes. I used 3d hubs for printing. Then it was lots of hobbyists printing at home, but now they dont use private printers any more. But there is a friend in Germany that has his own 3D printer (he printed the snoot). I used freecad 3D, and lots of measuring. For the extension knobs, there was some sanding and thread cutting needed. They are fit with little allen screws.
  4. The 10-22 lens was a good choice, definitely wide enough for this. I did a test with a +2 diopter the week before but decided against it. Couldnt see much improvement in sharpness but i could see more Chromatic Abberation. Had lots of fun and the children were photobombing eachother. I did ask if any parents had objections but they were all enthusiast about the idea. Some pictures were just snapshots, some almost post or 'action' shots. At least the parents liked them.
  5. Hi my youngest daughter (6) will celebrate her birthday with a swimming/pool party. What would be best to shoot some of the fun underwater? I have a cropped sensor Canon and the 10-22mm rectangular lens as well as the Tokina 10-17mm (that I normally use) which I also could combine with a teleconverter. I don’t have that many possibilities to try it out on a club pool night (only 1 without kids) Is wider / fisheye better? Or less distortion? Or should I just lighten up and enjoy the party?
  6. using a magnifiying lens with the same thread but not designed for under water, you loose strength. The design does not expect the glass/water interface. If you mean inside the housing, off course you can use the ones like the canon 250D or 500D that screw straight on the lens. But then you have to maybe adapt your port.
  7. move cursor over person name, in the popup there is "message". click that
  8. and how many pumps you do once the LED turns green ? If you do lots, the sensor might still think it is allright.
  9. Seems okay. Thank you.

  10. this thread has all the info....has some pictures of in between steps as well
  11. Bought an uwcamerastuff mini dome (for ikelite) from String. Everything went smoothly. I dont even think the scratches were as bad as mentioned.
  12. I am the happy new owner of said mini dome. Gave it a micro mesh / nova polish treatment today and I'm a happy customer !
  13. Will probably be impossible if there is no access to the multicontroller. But in M mode, why not use the front and rear dials ?
  14. For Sale is my copy of Martin Edge's standard The Underwater Photographer - 3th Edition. Paperback. will post anywhere at cost, from the Netherlands (or can take it to the UK and post from there at Easter). just make a reasonable offer. It is in good condition, there is a reading 'ear' on one of the outside pages and I have read it more then once.
  15. I used a sigma 15mm for a while in a 5503 dome port (the 6 inch), and later got the larger 8 inch port. I never did any side by side comparison shots. the wide angle ones in this set and the years before are with the smaller dome port. I got the bigger dome port in 2010 I think, so after that I used that port mostly. Think I sold the smaller one because I never used it anymore. https://www.flickr.com/photos/cerianthus/albums/72157604579637384
