  1. While there we took one day and went shore diving in Botany Bay and were lucky enough to see Weedy Sea Dragons and Cuttlefish as well as some great Nudibranch and plenty of creatures at "the Steps" dive site. http://www.delargy.com/2008_11_Australia/a...ydney_scuba.htm We used & I would recommend Abyss Scuba http://www.abyss.com.au/scuba/pc/Days-Divi...ney-77p2815.htm We hired a DM for 2 dives and it was worth it to insure we got to the right places and saw the weedy sea dragons we wanted to see. Enjoy!
  2. Good to know, but not an excuse for what I would consider to be normal storage conditions for a great many divers. If a $600 device becomes unusable after 2 months of not being used, that is a design flaw, not a user issue.
  3. So many things wrong with this picture, (new camera, new housing, new strobes, just jumped in the water, first dive, etc) but it was my first of these wonderful little creatures and I can remember the feeling of joy from looking at the image on the camera. Sipadan, Borneo
  4. So at least four of us had the same problem. I agree with Steve that L&M needs to be doing better checkouts on these. They are a small company and my guess is they will be a growing pretty quickly this year. If you are not near a great dive location, a pool checkout dive may not be enough to test it out. Mine worked for a few dives and acted up during charging. Serge, Can you share your dealer with us. They did you good to get one out to you right away. I would have loved that kind of response. BTW L&M has a new set of charts on their website that show measured output from their lights and their competitors. http://www.uwimaging.com/sola600p.html They have the Sola 600 listed in a few places as having 500 lumens. I'm sure it's a mistake. I guess I better get down to the water and test out my replacement light ASAP
  5. I might be the only person that has had a bad experience with the Sola 600 so far. It is an incedible light and I agree with the comment that when you pay next to $600 you should expect reliability. Reliability is not what I got however. I purchased the light in advance of my trip to Sipidan & Mabul, expecting to use it to get some awesome macro in the shallows, use the red light on the mandarin fish, etc. This was a once in a lifetime trip. I used it on my first couple of dives at Sipadan to get some video and pictures of anemone fish and the like and then when I was topping it up after a couple of dives it started blinking red really fast and then just died. I just paid a lot of money for a paperweight. I though, wait, L&M has a great reputation, maybe they can do something, so I emailed them. No reply. The folks at ReefPhoto were great and got back to me right away and indicated that the flashing light probably meant it was flooded and I was S.O.L. Anyway, I called L&M when I got back stateside and since nobody answered the phone, I left a voicemail with their support department?? Eventually I got a replacement, but boy, I would have loved to have actually got some use out of it. Now I'm not saying they are not reliable as a product, I am just throwing my data point out here. I love the light .. well I love the idea of the light. It worked well for the few minutes of video I got. I just hope that I don't end up S.O.L Again (Sola)
  6. Hi David, I hope the strobe shows up soon. I have just the right number of ULCS arms, but my new config (2 tiny S2000's) would be better if I had a 5" and 8" rather than 2 8's on one side, so I'm not actually selling anything (yet).. and now that I think about it, an international trade probably wouldn't be worth it, considering the shipping of two arms back and forth. I suppose what I'm offering might sound a bit like some of the spam email that we get :-)
  7. I have one too many 8" arms and one too few 5 " arms. If you have an extra 5" ULCS arm and want to trade let me know. If you don't want to trade but want to sell a 5" ULCS arm. let me know that too and how much. Thanks! Frank
