  1. Any concern about the weight of the system on the Nauticam float arms when on the surface? With my NA-6400, I used a lanyard the same as you, and over the course of a week had a float arm come loose and the end pop off. But they were no name Chinese specials from amazon. I am debating getting more float arms and changing their position, ie. out by the strobes with solid arms with Stix next to the housing, or just going with standard arms and more stix.
  2. Would you sell the extended Nauticam battery separately?
  3. I'm interested in the battery pack if you will split it.
  4. I'm so annoyed they discontinued this! I am looking for one as well!
  5. FYI, I would never make a friends and family purchase over the internet. Way too much risk for you to save $21 (3% of $700).
  6. Most of the hate on S&S seems to be WP group think based on the D2's bad reputation. They just did a firmware update to fix the D3 triggering issues. Never had a S&S strobe flood, but have had 2 different inons flood. their battery compartment o-ring design is garbage IMO.

  8. I am on the same page OP. I have a pair of YS-110a's, and decided to use my 2020/2021 scuba budget on a new housing, ports, new reg, new computer, and new bcd, and the rest for travel. That 2-3k strobe budget pays for 2 trips to cozumel and my 110a's still work great for now. Strobes are next year but I am still torn between retras or YS-D3's.
  9. Scott, I have an A6100 and Sturtle. i will see if I can recreate your scenario and how mine performs.
  10. Just as an aside, Might want to look into an A6100 in an A6400 nauticam housing. The A6100 has a lot of AF improvements and features from the A6600, and it looks to be identical in dimensions. I shoot an A6100, and will be ordering an a6400 nauticam housing soon to try it.
  11. I absolutely agree. The question is if the extra cost of going FF is really needed for most of us.
  12. Before jumping into FF, seriously consider the cost of the camera, lenses, housing, ports, etc. A7c is physically similar to A6xxx series in size, but the glass cost for FF is very expensive. Depending on your use case, APS-C may save you thousands on glass alone.
