  1. I somehow misplaced my Nauticam vacuum cap while on a diving trip. I did not realize it until I finished a dive. My housing remained dry until I relieved the vacuum and although I tried to remove all the water from the exposed vacuum valve, a light mist got on my camera. I decided to push it and did around five dives with one at 100 feet with no problems. Maybe I just got lucky! Since I could not find any reports of people diving without a cap, I thought I would post about my experience. But please, do this at your own risk and please do blame me if you housing leaks without a cap!
  2. I just got back from a trip to Mag Bay. I flew into La Paz but did not have any problems because my first leg was from Oakland to Guadalajara where I cleared customs without incident. My flight from Guadalajara to La Paz was a domestic flight therefore I did not go through customs at La Paz. This is one work around to the problem.
  3. Due to an emergency surgery, I can not attend my Alex Mustard’s Red Sea Photography workshop. It starts June 30, 2018 and is a 7 night liveaboard trip. I paid $1,700 and want to sell my spot for $1,000.
  4. Redtail or Crosshatch Triggerfish, Xanthichthys mento?
  5. I am selling my Nauticam 7D housing and Canon 7D camera as I have switched to a Nauticam 7D mkii. The housing is in good condition. I bought the housing new from Backscatter in October 2010 and the housing had a complete overhaul by Nauticam in May 2015. The housing has a Leak Sentinel vacuum leak detector installed. The Canon 7D camera is in very good condition as it was just used in the housing. I have a spare 7D that I used as a backup/topside camera which I could sell separately. Price for the Nauticam 7D housing and Canon 7D is $2,000.
  6. Bill, what was the working distance between the SMC and the CMC? Thanks, Todd
  7. Thanks for the ID howeikwok and liquidguru! Liquidguru - beautiful video, perfectly displays what I saw.
  8. I found this "thing" a couple of millimeters in length in constant, erratic motion. Any idea what it is?
  9. I was wondering what companies people are using to backup RAW images on the cloud.
  10. WOW, 13 hours on a single charge with a Macbook air. I am happy if I can get 2 hours of processing done in lightroom with my 2 year old 15 inch Macbook Pro!
  11. Thanks Steve for the reply but I was not shooting in burst mode and even when the camera was firing without a problem, I was not shooting that quickly between shots.
  12. I shoot with a Canon 7D in a Nauticam housing. On my last trip, after about an hour of shooting approximately 200 shots without a problem, my camera slowed to a crawl and after each shot, I would need to wait about 4 seconds before I could take the next shot. During the wait, a "busy" message showed on the LCD screen. I was not shooting video and had my internal flash power lowered to 1/128. I was using a Lexar 16GB Platinum II 200X card. During this time, I checked the battery level which was at 75%. On the boat ride back, I turned the camera back on and could take shots without delay. Any ideas what caused the delay between shots? Thanks
  13. Why is this happening. When I set my 7D internal flash output to 1/128 and put the strobe to "full", I get much less power from the strobe than when I set the 7D to ETTL with the strobe set to "full". internal flash set to 1/128 internal flash set to ETTL
  14. The Big Island of Hawaii keeps getting bigger. [image]url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/90966819@N00/5335290890/][/url][image] [image]url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/90966819@N00/5328851183/][/url] [image] More pictures at http://www.flickr.com/photos/90966819@N00/...57625633734497/
  15. Thank you both for your replies. Luckily, I figured it out! The error message was not memory card full but something about number full? So on my menu I have a number reset which solved the problem. Thanks again!
  16. We are on a dive trip and my wife's Fuji F30 stopped working. It says card full when the memory card is empty. I tried reformatting the card, changing out cards, resetting the camera, removing the camera battery with no luck. Any suggestions?
  17. I was wondering if anyone could share their story about a leak detector saving their camera or if the leak detector just let them know the camera was indeed flooded. Thanks
