  6. Hi All, Subal ND2 Housing with FE-2 Dome using 17-55DX lens -what extension ring is required? Is the use of a Dioptre required? Thanks ron
  7. Mine slotted straight in as well - your battery must have moved in transit. Checked my housing for the "gunk" there is a very small amount around the knob (never noticed it before your post) give the housing a good work out in the pool before mounting the camera, just to be on the safe side. Have done 50 plus dives and no sign of any problems. ron

  12. Also looking back, Day 3 on a liveaboard I started to be pleased with my images. Good work for your first dives with the new rig. Just a tip using the Subal - make sure that the AF area mode selector is correctly located when closing the housing - I got caught once. ron

  15. Hi All, Just back from Thailand trip aboard the Ocean Rover out of Phuket The images shown have not been Photoshopped (if that is a word) other than size and compression - I am pleased with my first use of this camera and look forward to improving my images as I start the learning curve for this "beast" Bottom line is I will now be selling my Subal Housing for the D100 and using the funds towards a second D2X body. Follow the link below http://www.imagesdownunder.com/oceanrover/index.htm regards ron
  16. I have now received my Subal Housing for the D2X (without the GS180) Subal could not supply the viewfinder in time for my trip. Fortunately the Subal Dealer in Australia is able to retrofit the GS180 when available. I shall use the next 2 weeks to do some testing and plan on using all my lens and strobes and will post some samples when I return. Lens: 10.5, 12-24, 60, 105, 70-180 Strobes: SB800 in a Subal Housing 2 x Inon 220Z regards ron

  19. Hi Joe/Alex Thanks for the comments. The juvenile eel was at F11 @ 5.3 single strobe DTTL Lens 70-180 @ 135mm again no adjustments. Joe, Thanks for the image adjustment tips - will have a play and see how it looks. regards ron
  20. This image was taken with a D100 F9 @ 125 single SB80DX Flash. No Photoshop processing straight raw to jpeg conversion and image size reduction. Please comment on ways to improve these types of images such as juvenile batfish and ribbon eel etc I now have 2 x Inon Z220 strobes as well - would using 2 strobes help? thanks ron
  21. Hi Torben, Is the link from your homepage missing? can't enter your site regards ron
  22. Hi Guys, Well I have taken the plunge and will concerntrate on WA rather than macro for my next trip (Ocean Rover). The setup I am using is a D100 in a Subal Housing with 2 x Inon Z220, I have a 12-24 zoom and will purchase a 10.5 next week. I would appreciate any tips in getting upto speed with this speciality lens. thanks ron
  23. Hi Guys, I have decided to upgrade to the D2X from a D100. I shall stick to the Subal Housing because of the ports etc that I already own. Do I understand correctly that the SB80DX is not compatable with the D2X and therefore I shall need the SB800? Can the SB800 fit and operate in the Subal SN80 housing or can the housing be modified to suit? thanks ron
