  1. Not really directly related to your questions but maybe of interest for some thinking of connecting Seacam strobes to Nauticam Housings via Bulkhead:

    I installed two Seacam 150 strobes to my Nauticam Housing this year after bringing them back from the Dive Show in Germany. I got them with the Seacam Bulkheads as the Nauticam ones were not available at the booths of the various dealers at that moment. So i decided to go with the Seacam ones and use the M16-14 step down adapter that Pavel mentioned above.

     

    The bad surprise: The Seacam M14 Bulkheads don't fit through the Nauticam Step Down Adapter as the thread is too long.
    I had the adapter milled out and filed off the front part of the bulkhead to make it work.

  3. I hope i won't be kicked out of wetpixel for answering here ;)
    Because this is exactely what happened to me after i joined into Bent's thread on the Underwater Macro Photographers Group (UWMP) on Facebook. As Bent i am not angry to not be a member anymore … but also seriously concerned where this policy will lead. It feels more like a North Korean regime than a internet community to me. I am really scared that there are more than 30.000 members seeing clearly manipulated images and nobody is allowed to point it out.

  4. I have shot the original 7D for several years and am now shooting the 7D mark 2. Both in Nauticam housings. And i must say, that the quality of the housing has almost improved more than the camera itself. Besides the AF i think the major improvement is the custom controls of the camera and the quality and controls of the housing itself. I liked my old Nauticam housing but the new one is just so much better. So i am with megtooth on this one: the nauticam is well worth a look.


  5. Selling due to recent upgrade … thought i would keep it as a Backup, but never end up using it. The housing is about 4,5 years old and well used. But works fine and has never been flooded. All gear is in Lembeh Strait / Indonesia. Going to Europe next week and can also ship from there.

  6. Hello,

     

    really would appreciate some help on a Nudi-ID. I photographed this Thecacera Nudibranch last week and have no idea what it is. Firsat i was thinking it could be a Thecacera picta variation with just the orange/red parts missing. But then i realised, that first the black lines go all the way through and don't form the typical dots like on the side of the pica, second the red is completely non-existant and third the "ears" of the Nudi are very pointed and not rounded like on the picta.

     

    Photographed in Lembeh Strait in about 15m depth on a sandy patch.

     

    Anyone has an Idea?

     

    Cheers, Serge

  7. Hi Dustin,

     

    thanks for your review ... and nice to hear, that you enjoyed your stay. specially looking forward to the Hairy Frogfish footage with our loughter in the backgraound :D

     

    As for the food: we are working on some more western dishes and have now spaghetti back on the menu and are testing pizzas and burgers at the moment (in fact i am right now eating a home made pizza ...).

     

    Greetings from Lembeh and hope to see you again here soon,

     

    Serge

     

    PS ... we found a small pinnate & zebra batfish the week after you left


  8. Mikey, most of time I went myself but little green shrimp was by Serge (the Hitler) at NAD lembeh resort. :D

     

    Hahaha, was big fun diving with you Eun Jae.

     

    We have been seeing this green Phycocaris Shrimp now since about half a year, when one of our guides found it for the first time. They have been our "big secret" for a while, but two other resorts are finding them as now as well. 


  9. Hi Pedro,

     

    i found out how to open the button (a friend send me a message), but it did not help in my case. You can give it a try though: Push the button in (don't turn it) and push a wire or a pin through the holes on the site to fix it. Than turn out the whole thing anticlockwise. This is by the way also the method to open the lightswitch button.

     

    After having opened, it turned out, that only half of my magnets was still there ... the rest was already corroded

     

    cheers,

     

    Serge


  10. This Frogfish is one of 2 Frogfishes, that used to stay for more than half a year in the same sponge at Rojos ... they hung out there for quite a while and when i went back there last week, i found out, that they are gone. But: i found quite some juveniles of that species on the same divesite and the ones around ... so it seems like they could reproduce, which makes me really happy. In memory of these two little buggers, i want to post a portrait of one of them ...

  11. Hi folks,

     

    One of our Guides found this shrimp and our guest took this picture

     

    It looks like a hairy shrimp (Phycocaris simulans) ... but has no hair, a thicker body and green colour. Movement, Size and habitat are similar to the hairy shrimp.

    Anyone knows what it is? Is it the same species, a variation, antoher Phycocaris or something else?

     

     

    Thanks,

     

    Serge


  12. I am having a problem with my 2 Z240 type 3. They only will work in TTL mode and not do manual. When i set to manual they only give a tiny flash that is not showing on the picture. the settings are correct (magnet, 7d on manual, 1st curtain ... all that is not the reason). So i figure it might be the magnets stuck and the flashes are still preflashing? so what i want to try is to open tha magnet buttons and see if they are maybe stuck from the magnetic sand here in lembeh ... now my problem is, that i cannot figure our how to open the magnet button ... anyone knows how to do it? can it be done? or do i brake the strobe?

     

    thanks for any advise ... i'd really love to be able to have manual strobe control again :)
