  1. Hi John I used a sigma 15mm fisheye as the tiger sharks came very close. The main problem is the amount of fish that get between your camera and the sharks so the fisheye worked out great. You will have a great time if staying at Beqa lagoon Resort check out the house reef for macro I spent hours on the reef and found loads of critters. Also dont miss The site Fantasea have fun.
  2. Attached a Gopro to the top of my housing and pressed record while I did still photographs of the sharks. In editing I added the photographs to the movie to show when they were added, something a bit different https://youtu.be/XRVcErnRtCo
  3. I wonder if you can use the Nikon 60mm 2.8D? I love that lens its so sharp.
  4. Ok cheers for that Ill try both and see if I can see any difference
  5. Hi just after some advise I have just got a Nikon 16-35mm f4 which I will be using on a full frame D800 behind a Nauticam 230 glass dome port. On the port chart they recommend a 90mm port extension but I am just wondering if I can get away with just a 70mm? I have a 70mm and a 20mm so could put those Together to make a 90mm but Just seeing if any one uses a 70mm and if they are happy with the results. Cheers Alex
  6. Ok cheers for that Pedro I'll try a few things and see if I can get it working on the Ikelite. Cheers Alex
  7. Hi any ideas? I have a The Remote Slave Unit (RSU-N) by https://heinrichsweikamp.com/but I can't get it to fire my slave strobes. I tried it with a Sea&Sea YS 30 with a Sea&Sea sync cord with Nikonos point. This did not fire the strobe but strobe set to slave will fire. Next I tried an Ikelite DS125 with Ikelite to Nikonos sync cord (red) but that did not fire either. Any ideas on what I need to do to get it working. Cheers Alex
  8. The Shark dive with Beqa Island Resort was very well run and I felt very safe. The local Fijian dive guilds know their sharks and were space around us to fend off the Tigers when they came in to close or from behind. They dive this site three times a week so know how to handle the sharks. Talking with them you can tell they are very passionate about the sharks and know them each of the Tigers by name. They only use their hands to push the sharks away because if they use the metal hooks they have the Tiger sharks don't like it.
  9. Check out Beqa Lagoon resort I took my wife and 3 kids there in December. Great set up for familys kids did scuba and the diving was really good large Tiger sharks about 6 of them right on the fisheye dome port. Healthy reefs with loads of soft coral and turtles and a couple of wrecks. Also there is a house reef for macro found loads of cool stuff. Tonga or Niue for Humpbacks French Polynesia for schooling sharks or Poor Knights Islands nz for large schools of fish and groups of very large stingrays similar water temp to Sydney. Southwest rocks for Grey Nurse sharks enjoy this part of the world loads to see
  10. Hi any one selling one Ikelite DS125 strobe. I will pay for shipping to New Zealand Cheers Alex
  11. Cheers! Thanks so much for that, I will have a play around with the settings tonight.
  12. Hi I currently have a Nauticam D800 housing the problem i have come across is there is no way of knowing when you have change your flash to rear syc. Before I had a Ikelite housing and you could see the top display and change it from front to rear curtain. But now if I change it I have no idea if it's on Front, Red Eye or rear as it wont show in the viewfinder. Does anyone know if there is something in the menu you can find out or is it just a matter of setting it before a dive and leaving it on? Cheers Alex
  13. Hi yes running two separate cables both fiberoptic triggered from the camera's flash and have swapped the batteries around.
