  1. Dear Jonny , I might be interested in the super wide port , is it still available ? And i have a question for you if you don't mind I bought a Gates mic for the XHA1 but i couldn't make it work , is there a special setting for non battery powered mics on XHA1 ? Or is my Mic faulty , other Mics with battery do work . Regards,
  2. Hi , I am frequently flying all the routes you have mentioned and i would suggest you should drag your attention on one of them which is Manado to Sorong with Lion Air. Lion Air uses the ATR 72-500 to fly this particular route which has very small overhead compartments . So a guy waiting at the main door of the plane will collect all hand carried items bigger then a Large wallet and store it for you in the back of the plane . You will get them back while getting off of the Plane . They are extremely strict on Checked in luggage especially lion air , but believe me it doesn't cost that much and is not worth the hassle with a non English speaking check-in employee. One more note , Lion Air from Manado to Sorong , has a checked in Luggage allowance of 15 KG only ,not 20 kg ! Best Regards,
  3. Hi Bill, Thank you so much for your response , i feel relieved now. Just to clarify ;where should be the friction washer exactly , i havent noticed that one ? Have to check on that one when i am back home. And doesnt the snap ring get week after time when you remove it ? Otherwise yes it is a great idea ! Best Regards, Tunc Yavuzdogan
  4. Dear All, I have just received my Inon straight viewfinder with nexus adapter , and installed it on my D200/D300s Converted Housing .The outer ring of the viewfinder fits very well . But after tightening the viewfinder with the ring nut tool , the viewfinder still seems to be loose and moving inside the adapter where the c ring is . I just wanted to ask if any of you using the same setup are experiencing this . I havent done a inwater test yet but looks a little bit scary . Wanted to be on the safe side and ask I have attached a very short video for you to see the movement after tightening the ring nut tool . Best Regards,
  5. Wooow ,was away for diving for 3 days , amazing opinions and knowledge did accumulate here ! Thanks everybody for the reply's. I am also an enthusiast film maker , i really have no problems with the photography options my Nikon camera provides me , but i would really appreciate it ,to switch to Video during a dive ,with those amazing lenses ,and not have a footage looking like taken on a mobile phone as an end-product !
  6. As a life time Nikon user, I've never felt this much let down as I did for the last couple of years. We've been watching Canon pop incredible cameras one by one in the prosumer category, while we are eagerly waiting for Nikon to, at least give us a hint, what they have in the kitchen for us. And our most trustworthy source about what could be going on there is Nikonrumors ??? I must say I was so jealous of the 5D MarkII and now the Cinema SLR series are driving me crazy ....but I am in love with my Nikons... Is there anybody out there who thinks Nikon will present a match to these newer generation cameras or shall we slowly consider the switch over ? Regards, Tunc Yavuzdogan
  7. @ gee13 ,Thanks yours must have been an awesome experience too ! South point is also very special! @kun1 , wooow that did make me Jealous ! Amazing! And thanks for the great comments everybody ! Regards, Tunc Yavuzdogan
  8. Dear David, Happy you enjoyed watching the Video , wish you good luck on getting the Permit and try to do your Barracuda Point dive in medium to strong current conditions. Regards, Tunc Yavuzdogan
  9. Thank you so much Steve , yes it was indeed very murky at that time of year Regards, Tunc Yavuzdogan
  10. We’ve been diving in Sipadan for a long time. There has been times it had amazed us, I have seen its high times staying on the island and watching whales, mantas and marlins passing by. But last October we had a particular Jaw dropping dive at Barracuda Point . We were lucky enough to film the shark action , especially the moment all of them were just hanging in the blue at the famous corner . But i haven't seen so many of them in 10 years , i think the environment there is really benefiting from the strict Sipadan permitt restrictions ! Please have a look at the story here ....and the video of that particularly dive is attached in the same post .. Those who want to have a closer look please check it out on Vimeo on HD . I would appreciate if you share your thoughts and experiences about the very same dive site ! Regards,
  11. Hello scuba diver parents ! We noticed that some parents have been asking questions about going on dive trips with children. We’ve been doing so for 7 years, and we have started preparing a guide for parents that want to go diving with their children. Both my wife and I are underwater photographers, so we are very keen on diving, and we also love our children to be with us when we travel. I hope the information below will be helpful to all the parents that plan dive trips with their children. Resort&Destination Reviews from a Mother Diving Trips with Children Diving Trips with Infants We're looking forward to hearing your experiences. Tunc & Selen
  12. Hi Everybody, I am so sorry to get back to you so late about this topic , i appreciate your help in this one ,thanks so much . Still working on it tough Regards,
  13. Hi Everybody , Sorry to bother you for this , but this forum is the only place i can get a correct answer .Hope you can help me out . I need the exact diameter of the zoom Barrel on the above mentioned New lens from Sigma ( 17-70mm F2.8-4 DC Macro OS HSM). I don't have access to it at the moment and i have to pass the info trough to my friend back home to make me a zoom gear for my Nexus housing. I am on a little bit remote area at the moment , So thanks in advance if any one can help me out with this , Best Regards,
  14. Hi, I am using the Eye-Fi SD card with my D300s in a Nexus housing , i must say that it is not slow . It is perfect when you come back from a dive and want to see you results before the next dive without opening the housing . Or you just leave it next to your computer and it will auto transfer while you are having lunch . Doesn't need any wireless network at all , has direct mode to connect directly to the Laptop Tunc
  15. Hello Everybody , Thank you so much for your great comments , @Steve , yes the eyes of the Seahorse also very sharp on the Hirez picture . My favorite shots are also the first and the last one Best Regards,
