  1. Indeed. Pre-ordered through Amazon on the first day. Hopefully, the housing will be ready before my winter vacation.
  2. We're in the same boat, Simon. I've stubbornly held onto my 43 glass. An adapter from Nauticam would be great.
  3. Although I don't know who makes/sells it, I'm pretty sure there's a port adapter for 4/3rds to m4/3rds. Can anyone help me with this? Assuming it exists, would it be compatible with the Nauticam housing, so I could use my 4/3rds glass? Thx, David
  4. Speaking of which, I would love to hear from anyone who has shot the E-M5 with the standard 4/3rds 50mm (and 1.4 TC if possible). For better or for worse I'm heavily invested in 4/3rds lenses, and completely switching systems is not an affordable option. I'm not that concerned with focus speed, as I shoot 95% of my macro in manual focus. I'm primarily interested in the quality of the image compared to my aging E-410. Phil, any thoughts? -David
  5. For Sale: Canon G11 WP-DC-34 Housing Canon Soft Case Macro Port Attachment Extra Battery (not Canon) I've been using this setup as a backup to my DSLR. The underwater housing has been used for a total of 8 dives. All items are in NM condition. I still have all of the original boxes. US$500 for the whole package. Shipped from the USA. Email me with your questions or requests for additional photos. Thanks, David
  6. A second vote for Asia Divers in PG. Dave & Sam do the tech stuff down the beach at Tech Asia.
  7. I stayed at Lumba Lumba several years ago. The rooms were nice and spacious. It wasn't the most camera friendly place, but not problematic either. Basically, they just had a couple of rinse tanks, and I took my camera gear back to my room for cleaning/maintenance. I didn't rent any gear, but they seemed to have plenty of it. The management was friendly and competent. Sorry, I don't remember a thing about the DM's. At the time of my visit, there wasn't a restaurant at the resort. There were 3 or 4 decent places to eat along the beach, but don't expect too much. According to management, the best month for BIG stuff is July, so you should probably leave asap. My trip was in November, so I probably missed out on a lot of the mantas/sharks/etc. Anyway, there were a few nice sites for wide angle, but the rest of the dives were dominated by rocky terrain. If you like eels, you'll be in heaven. The best macro site was the house reef. It was worth repeating. Cheers, David
  8. This reply is probably coming a few weeks late for you, Aaron, but I'm in Taipei and have an extra Ikelite tray I could sell U. It's an older model with fixed arms. Just send me an email if you're interested. -David
  9. I was wondering why U hadn't mentioned Batavia, but that more than explains it. Can I withdraw my endorsement? As for my camera, I haven't bought anything yet, but there are many inexpensive replacements on Amazon/EBAY.
  10. As Simon can attest, I was recently able to get a ticket through Batavia Air from Jakarta to MDC. The Batavia website can be somewhat confusing, but I was ultimately able to purchase a ticket in advance using Paypal for around US$100.
  11. I'm somewhat of a fan of interesting wetsuit designs. In the past, I've posted links to superhero wetsuits, as well as whale shark, and shark attack designs. Well, here's the latest for all you trekkies on the forum: Star Trek Wetsuit. They're kinda nerdy cool, but a bit on the expensive side. Enjoy! -David
  12. Well, I'm certainly not gonna vouch for the credibility of a celebrity/gossip website. I agree that a more reliable source would be helpful.
  13. Once upon a time, Jessica Alba received a lot of attention from Wetpixelers for making the cover of Scuba Diving Magazine. I'm disappointed to report that Jessica lost a lot of that good karma with her latest escapade. While her intentions were obviously good (saving sharks), she showed really poor judgement.

  14. I can't believe I overlooked the whaleshark print. Really Cool! Marjo, have they quoted you a price?
  15. Here's are some fun/new wetsuit designs: http://bydiddo.com/?p=152#more-152
