  1. Sorry, screwed that first post up. I thought some of you UK wetpixellers might be interested in going to this event. A fellow diver and I have provisionally booked a boat with the intention of offering this as a trip for our club but we have had a cool response to the idea so I thought I would open it up to you guys to see if there is any interest in going to this weekend, There are 4 spaces left on the boat. here are more details of the competition; http://www.lundyisland.co.uk/splash003.htm and some info on the boat http://www.clovelly-charters.ukf.net/jessica.htm
  2. The built-in hood could be a problem for those of us with smaller domes and could cause unwanted reflections from inside larger domes. It also looks like a "Phat" lens, remember the problems with the Nikon 105 VR and port diameters!

  4. I love the shots and great use of natural light, I dont think you need to have the diver any larger in the frame, it allows the viewer a referance point to then marvel at the scenery and/or other parts of the picture (sub/wreck ect). The first thing I noticed was that all your shots seem to have the sub moving away from the camera and into the background, I believe that there is more interest from the picture viewers point when a main object in a shot is coming toward them, even the wreckage of the plane in the magazine example, we know that it's not going anywhere but the photographer has taken the shot so that the plane is pointed toward the veiwer. I realise that there may be a lot of persuading to be done with the submarines owners but for saftey's sake you may have to talk them into bringing the sub to a complete stop in order to get this shot. I'm sure that you will eventually get the knockout picture that all the magazines will be after.
  5. Don't forget the Tokina 10-17, its a more compact lens than the 12-24 and I believe closer focusing, also its a big hit with all the guys that use it here at wetpixel.
  6. I believe its a track called "why does my heart feel so bad" from the artist Moby. It's on the album "Play".
  7. Have you looked at my post ? http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15291 it may be a lot simpler ( and cheaper ) than getting gears custom cut.
  8. Question. With the housing open and your finger pressing the button, how much of the buttons shaft can you see? Apply the grease there, then release the button and work it a few times. Also try warming the grease up by putting the tube into some hot water for a minute, this may help to "thin" the grease allowing it to reach those hard to get at places. Don't forget to wipe off the excess grease after!
  9. I have been thinking about split ND / split dioptre filters and how to move them when inside the housing. Has anyone tried attaching a small weight to the outer rim of the filter so that when you rotate the housing the weight swivels the filter to landscape/portrait?
  10. Post some pictures of the housing, showing how the gearing works and maybe the combined "brainpower" (Ahem!) of the Wetpixel boatshed D.I.Yers could come up with a solution. I'm sure the British contingent of WP are sitting around twiddling their thumbs waiting for April/May to arrive
  11. I've not seen how UK Germany fit there zoomgears, but have a look at my D.I.Y. Thread here: http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15291 it may give you some ideas.
  12. If you want to save yourself some money on zoomgears you should check out my posting here: http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15291 But if you still want the "real" thing, check out Mavericks dive shop, it's in London and they are very knowledgeable and helpful, and I'm pretty sure that they are NEXUS distributors. www.mavericksdiving.co.uk
  13. I use "ultralight" arms myself,I like them and they seem to be popular in with wetpixel folk. But if your looking for something more interesting search this site for the "Stix" arm system, a very light arm that allows you to add bouyancy to balance the weight of your rig underwater
  14. Check out my thread, http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=15291 And save yourself some money
