    To be, finger tight or wrench tight is the question ?

    A little thing and just a curious question. It came up with a dive buddy and friend of mine who was helping me set up one of my regulators. He asked upon completion of adjustment because he had noted that the second stage to hose swivel connection had been only finger tight, if I wanted it to be...

    Socially Distanced Diver Cert

    I heard PadI was going to change their Self-Reliant pseudo-solo diver cert name, due to the new post Wuhan virus norm, and call it the Socially Distanced Diver certification. Then it would be accepted everywhere in the world, no questions asked. I knew there was a reason I did not like having...

    Sony NA-6XXX and Inon UWL100 Achromat lens combo

    For what it might be worth to anyone in the future, I have been able to put together my NA-6400 Nauticam and my old Inon UWL100 Achromat lens with Dome Conversion successfully. Many people had or still have these old Inon wide angle lenses (commonly used on the Oly 5050 and Ikelite combo as was...

    HSS ?

    Right now this may not be relevant to many shooters but there are cameras on the market now and for a little while that support HSS strobes, for example, the Sony A6XXX series. And I know there are others. But, at this time, there is only one UW strobe that allows manual HSS and that is the...

    TG housing port diameter?

    Can anyone tell me the port diameter of the various TG housings produced by Olympus? Is it 47mm, 52mm or 67mm? Did they change diameter at some point from 47mm to 52mm? James

    Prescription or readers to see the dang camera?

    I cannot see my camera or read the screen, or my SPG or my watch. I was able to manage with my S90/FIX because I was so familiar with it. My new Nauticam NA6400, I cannot see anything. I was in the pool last night testing set ups and gave up. I have stick on readers in my mask but they were...

    What will fit into the Nauticam NA-6400 housing?

    I doubt I will easily find the answer for this. Aside from the (lack of a) strobe, will a A6600 camera body fit into the NA-6400 housing? A6XXX, is any of the current or just past A6XXX cameras close enough in size and control layout to drop into the NA-6400 housing? More of a curiosity than a...

    I will surprise you. Nope, not a Argonaut Kraken though I do love them dearly, nope, not a Conshelf though I extoll their virtues whenever possible, nope, not even the vaunted Scubapro 109/Mark V as pretty as they are. Nope, none of those, it is a plain, old, first generation AL Titan LX...

    Pick and Pluck and Plasti Dip

    Leaving aside the foam vs other case interior and liner systems, has anyone done the Plasti Dip spray on their pick and pluck case interiors? I may eventually go to the TrekPac system for my Pelican 1535 but for now I have the pick and pluck foam liner and have it "plucked and picked" for my...

    Camera Rig Negativity

    I have never had a set up like my new Nautican NA6400 plus WWL-1 (and Inon UWL100+dome) and I knew in advance it would be heavy both in and out of the water. My previous UW camera rigs leaving out home made stuff going back to around 1974 has been a Nikonos and then a Nikonos III (strobes plus...

    Sometimes I think---

    What it must be like to float leisurely on the surface in a nice, soft BC vest, my head high and my rig stable. Sometimes I even think what it must be like not to have a cold piece of metal stabbing my in my rear end. Sometimes I think like it would sure be nice to have some big, roomy pockets...

    H20 Inon Strobe Improvement Kit?

    I recently got this and added it to both of my D2000 strobes. I like the larger knobs very much. But the kit came with a back up O-ring to be installed into the battery cover cap. I installed the O-rings but I am concerned they may not be a good idea and effect sealing of the primary (yellow)...

    Who has the fat-est compact rig?

    That is right, fatest, not fastest. Rigged with all lenses, batteries, accessories and ready to rock and roll as it would be pre-splash down, what does it all weigh dry and if you know, when wet? Also, if you can, what is it, what accesories, strobes, arms etc.. My FIX90 is right at 12 pounds...

    Copenhagen by shore dive?

    I have searched the threads and did find a little info but not really enough to answer my question(s). I am early planning my annual Florida trip and thought to dive this by shore entry. I know it is a good swim and it is possible I might reconsider now with my advanced age of 61 ;). But, in...
