From Larry Horricks
There is something called Shutter-bubble that looks very slick but rather unwieldy…i think the main reason to go to an aquatech would be if is significantly better ergonomically…because i doubt it will be significantly quieter than a Jacobson…since most of the sound comes out the lens tubes I doubt there is much more that can be done that Jacobson has not sorted. I agree that its a worry thatthe aqatech seems to be rather body specific and not all that easy to refit for different bodies…its things like this when i miss shooting with my film bodies…i shot with dame bodies and lenses for years…still have my F4’s and F5’s and even a nice set of old Manual focus Nikon Glass….ooooh that 180mm 2.8!!! they do seem to be interested in working with us on requests so thats a plus…I think Mark still makes a good product but it doesnt hurt to have competition out there. I dont like the look of the fatboy it seems kind of clumsy and the shutter release seems awkward. For now
Im sticking with my Jacobson and will see when Canon come out with their new 1DMKV and 5DMKIII models…I have considering a switch back to Nikon since the D3S just dominates in low light but was holding out to see if Cannon comes up with something that competes with the D3S…then I’ll decide on a new blimp scenario.
