  4. 1 Aquatica 5d mark II housing. Has never been in saltwater, only in the pool one time at the dive shop where I bought it a few years ago. Hoping to use the ports, dome, viewer, strobes on a new 5d Mark III housing but if for some reason thats not going to work Id be interested in selling the whole setup, case, glass dome, strobes etc.) Right now just want to sell the housing. Have no idea what its worth, make offer I guess. I paid a bit over 10k US 3 years ago.. id have to go look at the reciept.
  5. Not really, if the customer paid the import tax its not smuggling at all, and lets be realistic, something of this type of venture would be what, maybe a dozen times a year. I'ts not like I have suitcases full of cigarettes with me. We both know how many people leave the country with more than 10k in cash on them, and that happens every day. When was the last time you heard of someone getting jailed over a single camera housing?
  6. I was killing time today and decided to log in here and see whats new. Haven't been on in quite awhile, but I noticed a recurring theme in regards to DSLR housings and dome's. It seems there are quite a few people outside the USA (and some even from the USA traveling abroad) that have problems when ordering new gear, replacement gear, kits, etc. Ive seen posts by people (including mfg's) that are spending up to $600-700 or more just to SHIP these items, not to mention the time it takes to go through customs, and then have to pay import taxes, etc. Has anyone ever given the thought of being a human courier? Someone that could hand deliver your gear to you outside the USA, thereby bypassing import taxes, as well as a 24 hour delivery window to most destinations? I would gladly take on this part time job. All I would ask would be for someone to pay my airline ticket, and im close to 3 major cities on the west coast. (Los Angeles, Las Vegas, or San Francisco). I would pay for the hotel and my own living expenses. In return, I would get to travel and spend some time in other places. Since im self employed and have no obligations, I think this would be a great idea. Comments?
  7. Yeah, and more than a few have died using scuba in a pool. Crazy eh? People getting their scuba cert almost always use a pool.
  8. I thought the DS3 and such were now 1920x1080, 30fps, 24fps? But yeah, canon is way ahead on the video curve and whats being used in the industry. As far as the OP goes, the best DSLR is the one that gives you the results you are happiest with. Its like the chevy vs ford argument. It all comes down to preferences. Although I will say that whoever designed the canon speedlight nomenclature should have his ass kicked, repeatedly.
  9. It depends allot on who you know really. If you have any inspirations to get into something like say... sport diver, then good luck. That is a tight knit group that is out of florida and if your not in the circle then you have slim to no chance. If I was to recommend anyone, maybe try Curt Bowen at Advanced Diver magazine. His website is rebreatherworld.com, you can contact him there. Very easy going guy from what I can tell and while he may not have the circulation of Sport diver, he is a good bet to get published. As far as photographers, I cant imagine it would be that hard. There is a guy I have dove with here in northern california thats from SOCAL that has published a few books, im sure he would be glad to help, his name is Marc Shargel. I would possibly be interested, but to be honest i have far more experience on land than underwater, but am willing to give it a shot if you are interested.
  10. Best solution I thought of was to buy some white fins. They are out there, just not sure if in your model. I like the old scuba jet fins, and I finally found some in white but it was a japanese only website and I couldnt understand a damn thing. To me, having white fins is one less thing to drag around under water. I got the idea when I used to shoot video alot and I would use the scuba jet logo to lock focus on, and from there i thought (or someone mentioned) that white fins would be cool for white balance...
  11. Yea, thats paypal's standard procedure nowadays. Its supposed to be for the safety of both the buyer and seller, but its quite a pain in the ass if the buyer decides not to leave feedback and you have to wait the whole 15 (or is it 21) days.. As for the OP, someone asked if it was different in the us vs other parts of the world. The problem was the OP used a LINK from the email, which is a fake site. If you actually log into paypal on your own from a web browser, and then look under transactions, you will NOT see the money being sent at all from the supposed buyer. Its only if you click the link in the email it spoofs paypal and tells you the money has been sent and is in your account. Hope this helps..
  12. Wow, nothing I can add to ease your pain, except I assume you know its a expensive lesson. I got the same email and forwarded it to paypal to the fraud department. ANYTHING in Nigeria is suspect, as is someone sending emails pressuring you to send it right away, or offering you more money than your asking. Live and learn I guess. Sorry to hear about your loss.
  13. I have no idea when CS5 will come out, but I can tell you that its (or was) almost a given that LR3 will (or was to) become final at Photoshop world in florida this weekend. I spoke with someone at adobe that told me that (but not in those exact words, NDA stuff of course). He's been with the company since its inception..so I trust his info. Now that the latest LR3 beta just came out, that may not happen. Im curious if the adobe guys decided to add movie support after they saw Aperture 3 or they already had plans for it, or if they were just sitting on the fence to see if they should include it or not.
  14. I think the folder structure its looking for is just the DCIM folder. I made a folder on my desktop called DCIM, then made a folder inside that called MARCH105D and then just copied the 100EOS5D folder contents from the cf card into the MARCH105D folder and it worked fine. Im assuming you can just keep making folders under the original DCIM folder and it would work fine. (eg, march10, april10, etc) I still think the idea of just making image files via Disk Utility might be better, but im gonna try it both ways for awhile and see which I prefer.
