Thank you :)

1) Seems like they have released a led pocket now, you attach it under the camera.

3) What kind of flash system do you use? and how do you trigger the flashes? do you get ttl or work with manual?

That's great news :)

Would you mind writing a bit about your experience with it so far? :)
Do you use any flash system with the camera?

Sadly no, I'm still on the lookout. But so far the best choice seems to be the italian diveross.. or to buy a second camerasystem (canikon) for uw use.

What are you using it for? I wouldn't use a bag for anything other than splashing around in a pool / near the beach..

No way a bag can handle the pressure you experience while scuba diving.. Also, all the buttons will be pushed in and be useless at depth.

I contacted diveross, and they gave me a pricelist:

*EDIT: Removed because of request from diveross, please contact them for prices*

I'm still considering whether to buy it or not.. it's a big investment.. But if I do, I'll give you a full update after testing it out :)
Btw, do anyone know if it's possible to trigger nikonos sb-105 (and similar) flashes safely from a pentax dslr? (or is the trigger voltage too high?)

At the moment I use a simple canon d10.. it's cheap and gives gives decent results.. they claim 10m, but i've taken it down to about 20m without any problems. But it's a bitch to use the small buttons when you have to wear large gloves (5 degrees in the sea here now).

It's for scuba, so I need something that can handle 30m / 100 feet.. And I live in Norway, so it also needs to handle water temperature a few degrees above freezing.

Thank you, I'll send them a request :)

I'm looking into my options for a underwater casings for my pentax k-7.

So far I've only found diveross drp100 DRP100 PHOTO - Diveross underwater tecnology, photo and video housing | Plastmeccanica s.r.l

Do anyone here have any experience with diveross equipment? Do you know of any other options for the k-7?

I want to use it with the DA10-17 and DA12-24, would the spherical port fit both of these?

Was really hard to choose one, so in the end I just went for whatever was my most popular picture on flickr. It's a bit of a chance, because one needs to have seen a bit of internet-humor to really get this one.. And the wtf-factor is pretty good, so fingers crossed :)

Pentax K10d, DA*50-135/2.8 and AF-540fgz with reflective umbrella.

Some days life feels like stopping a train.. with your bare hands..

Here's one is from yesterday, took this while urbexing in an old abandoned railway that goes under the city.

It's taken with a pentax K-7 and the DA 10-17mm fisheye, and 3 flashes. AF-540fgz, AF-360 fgz and nikon sb-28dx. The nikon is laying on the ground under the camera, pointing at my face. Directly behind me there is two flashes, The AF-540fgz with a stofen diffuser pointing straight up (to light the tunnel), and the AF-360fgz pointed directly at my back (to give the rimlight).

If I were to do it again, I would move the nikon, because the flash from directly in front makes the picture look flat and fake..

I'm doing a Project 52 on flickr, so there's more selfies there if you're interested.. I'm posting this on flickr tomorrow I think :) There's another shot from the tunnel here.

Bryggen (the wharf) in Bergen, Norway, it's a series of really old hanseatic buildings in the main harbour area. Back in the days these buildings used to be filled with goods such as fish going to Europe by ship.

Today Bryggen is on the UNESCO list for World Cultural Heritage sites, and is probably one of the most visited tourist-attractions in Bergen.

The easy fix is as RawheaD says, press and release it really quick. Even usb-cards releases easily if you remove your finger really fast after pressing it down (don't apply any pressure to the card while it's on it's way out)

This station is the end station, so I'm standing on the platform where the rails end :)
Had to fight quite a bit for that spot :p

Almost feel like I get too much contrast sometimes.. what developer do you use? I use Xtol..

Scanned on a Canoscan 8800f.. Curling is a bitch, especially on 120-film.

The railway in my town (the Bergen line) celebrated 100 years earlier this summer, so they rolled out some old steam engines which I was lucky enough to get some shots of.

This is taken with a Spotmatic F using rollei retro 100 film. Lens is Mamiya Sekor 135/2.8.








Here is another shot using rollei retro, but this time with a Mamiya Sekor C330 medium format camera (TLR).. hope that's ok..

If that is all it does, how come iso 100 is unavailable (only 200-3200 is allowed) when you enable DR?
