  1. I went to a smaller set-up and no longer need. I had 3 dives with it. Great for macro and video! Selling as used, but is in immaculate condition! The new FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW, The perfect compact video lighting companion. This new iteration of the Neo Mini features a video pleasing 1000 lumens of white light in a 95° beam angle providing great coverage for today’s wide-angle lenses. A single press of the Neo Mini’s control button and the beam angle switches to a 25° spot beam to isolate the lighting pattern for dynamic macro results. The Neo Mini is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery system that can be swapped with a fully charged battery between dives. Dive ready at a minuscule 160g, the Neo Mini rounds out with an automatic shut-off feature when a strobe flash is detected, SOS mode and distress mode. All-together, the FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW is the perfect lighting solution to any video genesis. The FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW has a beautiful 95° wide beam cast in even arching smooth beam with no hotspots or edge drop-off. Spot mode made easy! Just a single press of the Neo’s control button and Neo’s beam angle switches from 95° to 25° 600 lumen spot beam, perfect for macro video. The Mini’s narrow spot beam works to isolate small subjects from their background. Leaving the background of your composition unlit and dark provides excellent contrast to highlight the foreground subject. FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW specifications Lumens: 600 Spot/1000 Wide BurnTime (min): 100 Spot/90 Wide Beam Angle: 25° Spot/95° Wide Charge Time: 2.5–4 hrs Swappable Battery: Yes Adjustment: 25% steps Depth Rating: 100m Weight: 160g (air) Mounts Included: YS SOS Signal: Yes Model Number: 30395 MSRP: $299 USD
  2. Here is a link to a short video I scrambled from the test footage I shot with Panasonic LX15 on my liveaboard trip to Sudan in may. All is shot with ambient light, no additional lighting, all color corrected and edited in Hitfilm Express. I was mainly doing photos, as it were literally my first dives with the new rig, hence the quality of the video is mediocre, just to test the capabilities of the camera. Enjoy
  3. Here is a selection of my photos from my recent liveaboard trip in Sudan: Flickr link Rig used - Panasonic lx15 in Nauticam housing plus 2x Retra flashes. Enjoy
  4. We have a last minute availability of a space in a Budget cabin on the Mermaid 1 liveaboard for a trip to Komodo! This is with a male so it's best that the space would go to another male. The dates for this trip are 1 - 10 June 2018, in other words in around 3 weeks time from now. The Mermaid 1 is the flagship vessel of the Mermaid fleet, this 9 night trip will depart and return to Bali. Therefore, there are no domestic flights needed. All of the best spots in Komodo will be visited on this trip with amazing black sand sites in Sangeang, Manta Alley, Horseshoe Bay, and Castle Rock all on the itinerary. The space is 2900 Euro (approx USD $3473) plus a National Park/Harbour Fee of 150 Euro (approx USD $180, paid directly on the boat). The Komodo itinerary is a special one as there are really amazing encounters with mantas, big schools of fish, beautiful reefs for wide angle opportunities and world class macro life as well. A member of the Underwater Tribe will be on hand to help with all photo related questions. This is not a Photo Workshop but there will be plenty of photo talk and some casual presentations about the best way to capture stunning images in the Komodo area. For more information please visit: Komodo 2018 Or email us directly at info (at) underwatertribe.com
  5. Price = $2000 Camera housing - Sea & Sea RDX100 for canon SL1 (100D) Port - Sea & Sea Flat Port (see system chart for RDX housing online) Port Cover - Sea & Sea Neoprene Strobe Converter - Sea & Sea-Optical YS Converter for RDX Housing (have a look at videos online) This has been used for 10 dives is in great condition with only a few scratches on port. This whole setup was nearly $3k Setup is based in BC, Canada. Any shipping costs I would need an address to check costs Further details RDX100 Housing · Two Fiber-optic cable sockets. By inserting the Fiber-optic Cable into the housing connector, an external strobe will be optically connected to the camera’s built-in flash enabling full-featured strobe photography and creative lighting expression. · Features a Optical Viewfinder 0.5x that makes it easy to see the whole field of view. An optional exchangeable viewfinder can be selected as well. · Various ports including NX ports can be mounted with the RDX Port Base L or the RDX Port Base S in order to accommodate many kinds of lenses. · Easily operated shutter lever, excellent for quick snapshots. The shutter lever can be operated in two ways – pushing from the top or pulling from the front – and offers a smooth halfway press for adjusting the autofocus so you need not worry about any missed chances. · Large buckle structure (with lock function). Makes it easier to open and close the back cover than existing (metal) locking latches. · By attaching an SA8, a SEA ARM 7 Compact or a similar arm set to the tripod socket at the bottom of the housing, up to two external strobes can be mounted. · When using the optional Grip-Stay L II, you can hold the camera firmly with both hands just as you can with conventional housings. · Strong and durable build, with a depth rating of up to 60m / 200ft. seaandsea.jp/products/digital_slr/rdx100d/ Sea & Sea Optical YS Coverter Optical YS Converter/C can be built into the housing Compatible with new Optical YS Converter/C1 for RDX housing which converts the camera’s TTL Key Benefits Optical – No Need for Sync Cords Sea & Sea’s Optical YS Converter converts the electronic TTL signal into a light signal. This is good for two reasons. First, photographers can use fiber optic cables instead of sync cords. These are smaller, more reliable, cheaper, easier to maintain and will not flood (sync cords can flood at strobe or housing bulkhead end and require daily o-ring maintenance). The second benefit is that photographers can use fiber optic cables (light signal) without using the camera’s internal flash, since the Optical YS Converter converts the electronic signal into a light signal. Rapid firing of strobes with fiber optic cables was previously limited to the recycle time of the camera’s built-in flash, but this is no longer an issue. It was one of the key benefits to using sync cords over fiber optic cables, so I predict sync cords to disappear once all housing manufacturers start using optical converters. Divers also save camera battery life by not using the camera’s built-in flash. Change from TTL to Manual During the Dive Another major feature of Sea & Sea’s Optical YS Converter is the ability to switch between TTL and Manual power with the press of a button. Divers must no longer commit to TTL or manual before the dive, instead choosing their strobe power mode depending on the current situation. Other Key Features · Fine-tune strobe power via EV controller on back of YS-D1, YS-01 or YS-110a strobe · Battery level indicator · Blue LED light indicates TTL mode is active. Green LED light indicates manual strobe power · Auto power off and easy re-activation to save battery life Specs · Power: 2x AAA batteries (alkaline = 15hrs / Ni-MH = 12 hours) · Weight: 154g / 5.4oz · Housing Availability: MDX-70D, MDX-D7100 Installation The Sea & Sea Optical YS Converter is an optional (although highly recommended) accessory. If purchasing with a new housing, the team at Bluewater Photo can easily install it. For those adding it to their housing, installation is user-friendly, with two screws to attach the converter to the inside top of the housing. Conclusion So do you need the Optical YS Converter? Different divers will have differing opinions, but with the accuracy of the converter and Sea & Sea’s new Fiber Optic Cable II, you’ll be kicking yourself for missing a shot you could have saved with TTL. A great example is a light-colored school of fish that swam quickly by much closer than expected, blown out by your default “swim-around” strobe power settings. An optical TTL converter is certainly on my list to start saving for! signal to a light signal. Both TTL and manual strobe photography is possible using a Fiber-Optic Cable II. seaandsea.jp/products/digital_slr/accessory/008.html
  6. Raja Ampat vs Komodo I am underwater photographer and had great opportunity to visit Komodo, Wakatobi, and Great Barrier Reef in the past. Raja Ampat was always on my wish list of places to dive, but I always postponed this trip due its duration and expenses. Could you please share with me your experience of diving Raja Ampat from underwater photography point of view? Is marine life in Raja Ampat much different from Komodo? I am not interested in sharks, rather macro life and soft corals.
  7. One of the things I love about scuba diving is the fact you never know what you are going to see when jump in. The ocean is an ever changing environment and you can dive the same areas for years and your never guaranteed to see the same things. Well, this Sunday while aboard The Sea Dog Diver out of Pompano Beach Dive Center we could never have imagined what we were about to experience. After just coming out of the water from our first dive there was chatter on the CB radio about sightings of a Whale Shark. The joke about the boat was "did they see mermaids also?". About a half hour later we get a call from the dive boat Miss Conduct saying they have snorkelers in the water just outside of Hillsboro Inlet with a Whale Shark--and they do not have a camera...and nobody is going to believe them. Without hesitation we headed that way. Everyone on board was overwhelmed with excitement. Could it really be a Whale Shark in Pompano Beach? When we arrived all we saw was a fin in the water and the captain yelled "Go! Go! Go!" and we all jumped in. As we put our masks in the water there in front of us was the most massive gentle creature we had ever seen! Just swimming a long with his entourage of fish that followed him where ever he went. The funny thing was that after the first pass we were all hooting and hollering about how amazing it was to get to see a Whale Shark, and never (ever!) imagining he was going to come back to us over and over again. After an hour he finally had had his fun with us and moved out into the vast ocean he calls home. Needless to say the trip back to the dock was filled with chatter about this once in a lifetime experience. These shots were taken by my talented husband, Craig Dietrich.

  8. I decided to release my 116-minute documentary about the marine life of Thailand and Burma in its entirety on YouTube. This was a real labour of love for me, and represents a pretty big chunk of my life, so I thought I'd give it its own thread rather than tacking it to the end of my thread about the series. I hope that's OK. Feel free to share and embed it anywhere. It looks best at 720p, and there are a number of closed caption options under the CC button including the names of all the species and dive sites. Enjoy! [youtubehd]8ncUVddkK3Q[/youtubehd]
