  1. I don't normally to this for things I don't really like... I don't earn a penny or any discount from the guys, but their product is the best thing I ever found about battery storage. I have waited for 2+ years to write it down, and they are REALLY good (and can take a beating). http://www.powerpax.net/catalog/?product=12pk Good Luck!
  2. Hi folks, I just published an article on UWP (Underwater Photography Magazine) #53 on shooting inside the huge aquarium and it's technical difficulties. And also updated my Flickr Page with a new set, and my Webpage with a new gallery (Aquarium) and a video interview with the aquarium curator. Hope you like!

  4. I think it was a nice release, the more options we have the better it is. Shooting DX underwater and having the 14-24/2.8 for topside I don't feel particularly drawn by either one. But I reckon they are good pieces of glass... and the 16-35 may be the best option for the FX shooter in between the 14-24, 17-35, and 18-35...
  5. I don't like the new 60mm working distance, other than that it is an amazing lens. If I started today as you're doing I would look closely on the AFS DX 85mm/3.5G VR. Good Luck
  6. Not true, the PROer a DSLR is the simpler/faster is it's operation in fact. Welcome to DSLR world, every lens should get it's own port. Marco lenses should be used under flat ports, wide angles under domes. Choices are 60mm, 85mm and 105mm. I would consider an aluminum housing... Good Luck
  7. If you can, and you think you will end up with a DSLR in time anyway, you are ready to jump. Normally people who ask this question is ready to go. I am a Nikon user. Nikon's lower recommendation is D90. Canon's lower one is 7D. Good luck!
  8. I don't really mind, I follow the rumors out of natural curiosity, but when it comes out (if it comes out) we will have plenty of time to think about it. At least some 6 months before the housing market gets somewhat defined for it... uwphotogs are never at the front wave anymore.
  9. For your needs, get a compact, a simple one, the simplest one. Canon makes good ones, Oly, Sea&Sea, etc... Even being a die-hard Nikonian that's my opinion. PS: If I can give you an advice (which I think I am not be best to give it out...) stay away from the Nikon x Canon war on the DSLR realm. Or if you want to go in it, no choice to stay out, buy a Nikon:o)
  10. I haven't personally checked S&S configuration for this lens yet (just because I don't own one yet). But from what I hear here and from friends it seems that Sea&Sea's is really the best configuration. It is to be used with the smaller SXER isn't it??? Note: In 10y shooting S&S, so far I have only seen less than 5 official port configurations where I would rather want to use something different than recommended... Anything can and should be tested... but from the lens size seems like Sea&Sea's configuration is absolutely right and using it with a ER40 which is 20mm longer than the SXER might get the lens too much inside the dome, and get some vignetting from the dome/ER40. If that is not the case you might get unacceptable loss of quality from the center to the border of your pictures, which should be more strong at the wider focal lengths (closer to 10mm). Good luck!
  11. I have put a checklist for the Sea&Sea TTL Converter/N on my webpage. To be conveniently printed in A5 paper and plastic coated to keep in the photo bag! Good Luck
  12. My zoom ring just arrived, and yes it is the right one. Some people worked it out with the 12-24 zoom ring as well... but I did not test this one.
  13. Weird... for some reason I had that the Nodal Planes (N) would coincide with the pupil planes (En/Ex) which is of course not the case... Anyway, thanks for sticking with it, just rest assured the tests done on the lens/dome I described were done with the basis of the "pupil" position then. Good Luck
  14. I've only taken it to 210... I believe they must have a 1.5 safety margin, so I don't believe in much problems up to 300. But I would do an authorized revision on all o-rings prior and before it. Good luck and please report the results.
