Stoney looks like fun , is it easy to find the wrecks !
Will have to pay a visit me thinks
I suspect this lens makes all the difference.[b said:Quote[/b] (sjrw @ April 18 2004,10:56)]I use C5050Z and housing, so why are your piccies so much clearer than mine???
Yeah, know what you mean - I don't know if it's a bloke thing but me and buddy couldn't resist flicking the switchs or having a twiddle with the knobs[b said:Quote[/b] (Steve L. @ April 18 2004,13:18)]Great Pics. Hoping to dive the new wreck early in May. Wonder when the jerks will start ripping off some of the control panels we saw in the photos ? If they are stupid enough to hack out fuselage panels on the helicopter at Stoney, god know what they will do to this.
Yup - I've been told that in the UK it goes for about £300, twice as much as the housing - scary! However, I was recommended a place in Japan and got it for £190 including postage, duty and vat - and it was here in 4 days.[b said:Quote[/b] (sjrw @ April 18 2004,14:59)]I can see I'm going to have to save up my penniesto get a lens like that.
Still, it will go in my 015 housing though. So that's reassuring.
5cm eh...That's not very far...
Does that mean I am stuck with v. wide angle for the whole dive, or does it go on the outside.
I know what you mean... I too am a flicker and twiddler, but I wouldn't dream of stripping bits off.
Nope the lens is a wet lens and should be put on under water. You can take it off if needs be and just the camera lens on its on.[b said:Quote[/b] (sjrw @ April 18 2004,14:59)]Does that mean I am stuck with v. wide angle for the whole dive, or does it go on the outside.
