  1. Gates are advertising a housing for the AX100, not sure if it is available yet.
  2. To answer my own question. One of my BSoUP friends has suggested that this is a partly curled up sea pen with nudibranch eggs laid at its base. I think he may well be right :-)
  3. I would appreciate help with the ID on this creature, possibly a nudibranch. These are video screen grabs taken in the Komodo National Park on a day dive. It is about the same size as a moderate nudibranch and was alone. I am not sure if structures on the left of picture first picture are gills or eggs. I cannot find it in any of my critter ID books. Thanks for your hellp Roger Eve
  4. Hi Nick, Thanks for that, it looks like you nailed it. I suppose with it being a day shot it is closed up. The night time images on the net of Alicia mirabilis look very impressive, shame i cannot go back and look for it on a night dive. Roger
  5. Hi Guys, I would appreciate your help with this strange creature. It is a frame capture from a video film. Taken on a muck dive Ambon, Indonesia, during the day in about 10m of water. It appears to be free moving and could slightly change its shape. The appearance at the top suggests an anemone, but I have not been able to identify it. Thanks for your help. Roger
  6. Thanks again for your help. The latest Wave doesn't seem to have the buttons on the screen, so I will really need to see one to check out how easy it is to operate the white balance. Best wishes Roger
  7. Thanks R4e, That is a really excellent reply, and very reassuring. I think the newer version answers some of your grudges. I assume the wide port is acrylic, and therefore fairly easy to repolish. One further question, how easy is it to use the one touch white balance? Thanks again, Roger
  8. If any one has any experience with the latest version of the Wave HD for the Sony CX700 I would really like to hear from you. I really do need to get smaller and lighter, and it looks a good option as a recreational housing. Thanks for your help and advice. Roger
  9. Hi Guys, I have dinged my 94 degree Amphibico port (Phenom/Endeavour) . Amphibico are no longer trading, so I am looking for an undamaged front element. Anyone out there able to help? Cheers Roger
  10. What a bummer, just gone and dinged by 94 degree port in the Red Sea and the UK supplier cannot even get spares for their own rental Phenoms. Still have the flat port but will have to hope nothing goes wrong with the rest of my housing!!! Here is hoping someone takes over the company. Roger
  11. Thanks. This is really bad news. Fingers crossed that someone buys them out and maybe some spares and servicing will be possible. Roger
  12. Has anyone heard anything about Amphibico having to "refinance"? The UK distributor says they cannot get spares, and I have scratched the front of my 94 degree port!!! Roger
  13. Hi Sean, You might need to set the camera to the right video output. On my Sony FX7 you need to start the camcorder menu, access the DISPLAY SET page and the DISP OUTPUT setting. Set the value to V-Out/PANEL. I hope it is the same on the SR12 Cheers Roger
  14. Hi Jo, It's certainly a great pinnacle, large enough to support a lot of life, and being out on its own in the current it attracts lots of shoals as well as supporting soft corals. It doesn't get dived as frequently as the classic Rasmo sites. Most day boats go on by to the Dunraven, a rather disappointing wreck in my opinion. The day I filmed the vis wasn't all that good near the surface (by Red Sea standards) so the shoals of yellow snappers were not so dramatic. There were three Napoleons at max depth, but I didn't manage to get close enough to do them justice on the video. See you at the postponed Photosub meeting Roger
