Hello from the Philippines!
Just ran across this forum today when I googled for a solution to a problem I was having with one of my lights (Thanks pmooney, you saved me a lot of time )
I've been doing underwater photography since 2007. Started with my Canon Powershot A630 in an Ikelite Housing to which I later added an Ikelite DS125 substrobe. After a year I upgraded to a Nikon D300 (also Ikelite housing) and added an Ikelite DS160. The first lens I bought was the Nikkor 60mm, followed by the Tokina 10-17mm, and finally by the Nikkor 105mm. The D300 and housing are at a friends shop on consignment now. Once it sells I plan to upgrade to the Nikon D500
For a backup camera I have a Canon G16 in a Fantasea housing with an Inon-S2000 strobe. I'm using the Canon now while waiting for the Nikon to sell.
I've been retired since 2014 and traveling almost full-time since October 2015. I've spent the majority of my time in the Philippines since then although I do travel back to the US from time to time. I started writing a blog last year which can be found at https://billstewartsunderwateradventures.com I'm also on Instagram: @underwater.adventures and Twitter: @ScubaBill22
I've dived extensively in Florida, Japan, and the Philippines. A handful of dives in the Caribbean, and a couple of dozen each in California and Guam.
I dive on a fairly regular basis now (it's been on again off again in the past). I did around a 120 dives last year and over 50 this year. I'm expecting to fly out of Guam for Chuuk on Monday and am really looking forward to that
