I bought a small camera bag at Best Buy that fits my housing, camera, backscatter lens and a few other small items. I pack the bag in my carryon suitcase along with strobe, other camera accessories, dive computer, laptop, mask and a change of clothing.
I’ve been using the TG4 since it came out with the Olympus battery and with oem batteries and both last about the same. I usually get two 45-60 min dives shooting stills and sometimes have to power the camera down toward the end of the second dive u til I’m ready to shoot just to make sure it...
Interesting that you’re having such a difficult time with assistance from backscatter. I’ve never had a problem getting help from them but I usually give the CA store a call and speak with them direct. I’ll be using the lens for the first time in two weeks and my friend just used it a few weeks...
Check out backscatter. They’re great to work with and I’ve bought a lot of my photo equipment from them.
BTW....I’ll be in Utila the end of March. It’s one of my favorite places to go to...other than Lembeh since I love macro photography.
I use dailies and throw them out when done diving for the day. If weeklies are the type that you take out and clean at nite then I don’t see an issue with using them. If you keep them in for a week before taking them out I would not recommend using them.
Yeah...sometimes it took me longer to get it out after a lot of rubbing and cursing! Also there were times when I wasn’t even sure if I had gotten it out. It can be a PITA it it sure helps reading gauges and seeing if your pics are in focus!
I wear a +3.0 progressive contact lens in each eye. At the end of the day I need to take them out and out my glasses in to work on my photos and to read since my glasses are a stronger prescription now!
I tried it when it was first showed at DEMA and it didn’t work for me...could be due to my needing such a strong prescription on my glasses. However I dive with contacts and have my TG set to enlarge the center when I half press the shutter and find that really helps.
