  1. Hi, I live on neighboring St. Eustatius and travel on Winair frequently with lots of UW camera and dive gear. You can check an extra bag in addition to the one that comes with your ticket. The charge is USD 25 one way. However, since the twin otters have limited luggage capacity, sometimes not all luggage will make it on the same flight. If you check two bags, chances are that one bag will come on a later flight. Usually that's the same day or the next. Just make sure to hold on to your luggage tag to present at the airport the next day. As for carry on: the Winair gate agents will never check or weight your backpack if it's not too big. A small carry on roller bag is often weighed at the gate. While the Winair website says it can only be 6 pounds, mine is always at least 15-20 pounds and I've never had any issues. It's not a guarantee, but that's been my experience after dozens and dozens of Winair flights over the past 12 years. So you are totally fine bringing a backpack and carry on roller bag with you. The roller bag will be put in the hold once you get to the plane, and will be taken out first so you can collect it as soon as you deplane. I hope this helps!
  2. Used Lowepro Photostream RL150 carry on roller bag. It has served me well on several trips, perfect size to transport a small setup such as a compact camera or m4/3, or even part of a FF setup. I'm selling it because I upgraded to a full frame system so I'm changing my travel setup. The bag has normal signs of wear but is in great shape. The wheels rolls perfectly, zippers runs smoothly, and the telescoping handle works very well too. It comes with the dividers, has a laptop compartment, and lots of pockets for small items. Asking price $75, I will cover PayPal fees and we split shipping costs from Phoenix area.
  3. For sale: GoPro HERO7 Black, in mint condition, always used inside the underwater housing (which never had any water inside). No scratches on the body, screen or lens. Underwater housing (Super Suit) has normal signs of wear, front lens is mint with no scratches. Housing works perfectly and never had any water leakage. It is rated to 60m / 200ft. Also included are two batteries, a Sandisk 64GB MicroSD card, several mounts, and a very nice hardshell carrying case that fits everything. I'll also throw in a red flip filter from Backscatter which is quite scratched up. This doesn't show up in the footage. The filter has protected the front element of the housing very well, that's why the housing lens is in such good condition. Asking price: $160 and I'll cover shipping from Phoenix area + PayPal fees
  4. For sale: 2 x Ultralight DB-B08 float arms, lightly used, some minor wear. New price $112, selling for $80 and I'll cover shipping within the US.
  5. @John Doe II Thanks! Yes they were shot in C-log and graded in Premiere, not too heavily but obviously boosting contrast quite a bit and saturating specific colors a bit more...
  6. Here are a few more R5 sample videos, shot with the same settings as I had in the previous post. This time I used the EF 8-15mm fisheye lens. Depth this time was in the 55-60 ft range, sunny conditions.
  7. Just did my first dive with the R5 and thought I'd share some sample footage (youtube links below). It's nothing special, just a few different scenes to give you a feel for the image quality. I have the camera in a Nauticam housing with ZEN 230mm dome, using the RF 15-35mm. Settings on all these videos: 4K 30p, HQ mode (oversampled from 8K), ALL-I compression, Canon Log on. Files were edited in Premiere and exported in maximum render quality. Footage was shot on St. Eustatius in the Dutch Caribbean. All videos are shot at around 70 ft depth, conditions were not great: it was an overcast day, still early in the morning, so not a lot of light or colors available at that depth. No artificial light was used, just ambient light. I used a white slate to manually white balance the footage, which is a bit of a hassle on the R5. Taking into account these low-light conditions, I think the camera produced some fantastic video. I am sure though the footage will be much more vibrant in shallow water with more sunlight. Interested to hear what you think. Happy to upload more footage with different settings next week if anyone is interested.
  8. For sale: Olympus 8mm f1.8 Fisheye PRO lens. The glass is in mint condition, no scratches. There is some minor regular wear on the body. Lens caps included. $500 OBO, I'll cover PayPal fees, buyer covers shipping. The lens is located in Arizona.
  9. I have for sale an Olympus 8mm f1.8 Fisheye PRO lens, in mint condition, no scratches on the glass. Includes both caps. USD 650, includes shipping within the US
