  1. I have a just about brand new ikelite 100A subscribe. It was my backup. Not sure if its even seen water. $100 plus shipping
  2. I have a nikon d60 with a aquatica housing. I have the 6 inch dome and the extension for the 16-85mm lens. Includes an ikelite AI strobe and a ikelite 100a strobe. Sync cords also. The only thing you would have to buy is the 16-85mm lens or 18-55mm lens as i have the zoom gear for both. To see samples with this setup my website is reefscenics.smugmug.com
  3. I have used blurb.com. They do have a UK web site. I have done wedding books and underwater photo books and the site is pretty easy to use and good quality book in return.
  4. Hi. Aim your strobes outward so the light just is slightly in front of the subject. Backscater behind subject is less distacting. Twin stobes work slightly better than single strobe but all of my shots you see in the west coast gallery are single sttrobe. Close focus wide angle was my favourite type of photography on the west coast of canada. Get as close as possible so less water to shoot through. If it is really bad visibilty macro is your only choice. To see sample of my work which was shot on a nikonos film camera as i quite diving the west coast 15 years ago. https://reefscenics.smugmug.com

  6. I have a used Fantasea 500 lumen focus light. Good condition. it retails for $99usd. I would sell for $60usd. I have an ikelite Flex Mount to mount the focus light $15. I also have an Brand New Ikelite Gamma focus light won in a photo contest. I have to many lights already. $85usd Illuma 500 Dive LightA powerful, durable and stylish dive light, perfect as a night dive, modeling and focus light. The Illuma 500 Dive Light features a powerful, wide and even beam, which provides a great angle of coverage and a clear view during the dive.

  7. Sony hdr as 300 action camera is about the same size as a go pro but i prefer the colors of the sony. Reds and yellows are emphasized. Comes with housing already so no purchasing extra housing. I used the underwater mode all the time and it works very well but above 15 feet the reds are to intense. I have a Big Blue black moly 3 video light which has 2600 lumens. I will probably purchase a second big blue light for a little more even lighting. I used the yellow filter on the big blue light so the yellows look very nice. The light without the yellow filter is 6500k which is a little blue. The filter not sure the kelvin number but it works. The visibility on our dives in Hin Daeng and Hin Muang were about 60 feet https://youtu.be/4NfTvH_rmXk
  8. Epson make a pretty good desktop scanner. To see sample of scans i did on my epson. These shot were done on slide film and scanned to digital. https://reefscenics.smugmug.com/Underwater/West-Coast-Canada/
  9. Did the similan island route. 5 day 4 night trip
  10. Diverace liveaboard is a comfortable steel vessel. Very organized vessel. Staff are very good at there jobs and have fun doing them. Dive deck well laid out. Dining facilities are outside with varieties of asian and international cuise. Briefings done inside of main lounge area. Rooms quite large with a small balcony on the upper level rooms. Beds are asian style being on a low platform. Thailand reefs do show some damage from the coral bleaching of last year but still nice diving with lots of fish. http://reefscenics.smugmug.com
  11. I have an excellent condition ikelite 100a substrobe which works with digital cameras in manual modes. $200usd plus shipping. It was my backup strobe so it has seen very little use.
  12. I use my ikelite ai with my aquatica housing and nikon d60. Works very good.
  13. Mike Mesgleski services nikonos cameras. He teaches the Jim Church photo courses abourd the aggressor fleet vessels. Give him an email to see if he has the parts you need or can get them. http://www.underwatercamerarepair.com
  14. I have an aquatica housing with a nikon d60 with two sb 105 strobes. For lens i use the nikon 16-85mm lens. Aquatica recommends a +4 diopter for the lens. The standard setup i have does mild mild angle to macro 1:1. When i want to do 2:1 macro i add a second +4 diopter. The advantage of the setup i use is when you have only one shot at each dive site you can capture it all by using the zoom. I would recommend the aquatica housing as it is much lighter for travel and easier to setup. The sigma 17-70 is another lens you should consider as it is very good also. For strobes if you don't want ttl the nikonos sb 105 work very well. I have an ikelite 100a which works very well also. These two strobe are from film days so the camera does not register there are strobe attached so you guess on settings. With digital it is very easy. And the film strobe are a lot less money. For samples of my work. reefscenics.smugmug.com
  15. The brother islands itinerary at big brother has a wreck on each side of the island which comes to about 30 feet(Numidia and Aida). Very nice wrecks. The rest of the dives at the brothers is walls which are great. Elphinstone and Daedalus also has walls. Visibility is very good. All the best i think is the better all round itinerary for wildlife and reefs.
