  1. Why no, whatever made you think that?
  2. Do they ship to the US? I have a friend who needs some.
  3. Three cheers for all the winners. Congratulations!
  4. Those are all superb, Ed. The ghost pipefish is nothing short of amazing. You did a great job with your photography.
  5. We can hear the audible sign of relief from here. A happy ending, and good luck!
  6. A very nice image, Pieter. Your photo tells the story very simply and effectively. Well done!
  7. Yes, the Humann book says they are "very shy; retreat into recess when approached." You got a killer shot of the lobster.
  8. Then that would put it in the uppermost size range. The Humann-Deloach book lists the size as .75 in - 4.5 in. And very rare too. It was a great find and a superb capture.
  9. Very rare and very tiny. That was a great find, Larry.
  10. For years, I've been shooting a housed Nikon SB800 flash underwater. In my opinion, it works extremely well and provides great TTL exposures. Last year I decided to try shooting a second SB800, so I bought another SB800, plus a Fantasea FSB-800 Flash Housing. I was planning to fire the second SB800 with a fiber optics link. Later, I decided to just stay with the one housed flash, so the Fantasea housing has never been used. Fantasea recently stopped making these housings, so they're getting harder to find in new condition. Dealers who still have them are asking around $300 for the housing and sync cord. I'm offering mine for $175 (no sync cord), which includes shipping to US addresses. Please note that this is the housing only and does not include the SB800 flash. I prefer payment by PayPal.
  11. I'm getting inquiries asking if I would sell the underwater rig only without the topside stuff. So I'll let the underwater rig go for $650 plus shipping.
  12. Thanks, jbdiver. I've had a couple of other PMs like yours about selling parts of the package. Let me see if I get any takers for the whole thing, and if not, I'll get back to you. My preference is to sell the package intact. It's a great deal for someone who wants to start underwater photography or get a backup system. Cheers, Jim
  13. Aside from the remarkable similarity to my first wife, that's more information than I needed to know!
  14. I'll leave this up for a few more days before posting it on eBay.
  15. I hope it gets aired in the US, I'd love to see it.
  16. E900 UNDERWATER RIG FOR SALE Fuji E900 9 MP camera (purchased new in October 2007). 1 - Fuji 2GB xD card, type H 1 - Olympus 512MB xD card, type H Ikelite housing, tray, and handle Inon D2000 Strobe (optically fired in manual or S-TTL) with screw-on diffuser Inon optical cable Ikelite lens port adapter for add-on lenses Inon UCL-165AD close-up lens 2 ULCS 8" arms (one of the arms has a lens caddy for add-on lenses) 1 ULCS clamp This is a complete ready-to-dive rig except that you'll need to get two of the clamps (about $25 each) that connect the arms together (I had to cannibalize them for another rig), and I've lost the little piece of dark film that is taped over the E900 flash (other things can be used, or don't use the film at all). Everything above is in like-new condition. This equipment has only been underwater for about 20 dives. I bought it for a backup for my DSLR, but I hardly ever used it. All equipment will be shipped in the original boxes with original manuals and documentation, and all the auxiliary pieces. Additional pieces for topside photography: Fujifilm AR-FXE02 Adapter Ring 43mm to 52mm step-up ring Tiffen circular polarizer Set of Nikkor (Nikon) Diopters (0, +1, +2) - these are ancient. Nikon hasn't made these in decades, and you'll never find them on eBay, but they're some of the finest diopters ever made. These fit the 52mm threads on the step-up ring. Price includes shipping in the US, but foreign shipping will be additional. Please PM me if you have any questions or want more photos. $775
  17. Thanks, Bruce! Now when I figure out what a "bonza bloke" is...
  18. That is such an awesome honor to see your photo in the Smithsonian. I saw the previous exhibit last year, and I was green with envy at the remarkable photography. Congratulations!!!
  19. Wow, those are superb close-ups, Larry. More more more!
  20. I haven't understood one bit of all this. And I live in a red state.
