Why can't we have a site for those that own Sea&Sea cameras?

    The only camera I've owned for underwater use is my little S&S DX5000G. I have never had any trouble getting information off the main photo forum concerning Sea & Sea related questions.

    If it would be a way to keep the main forum more organized with general "photo" realated items rather than specific equipment related items by adding the sub-forum, I have no problem with it, but I don't really see the NEED for it at this point.

    When I first purchased my set-up, I would put posts on here related to S&S and would only get a couple of responses. I think because there simply were not that many people using them.

    More DLSR users are using S&S housings and the advanced Megapixle versions of the compacts have risen the popularity of the S&S dramatically in the past couple of years, but I'm not sure that the posts relating to S&S are necessarily clogging up the main forum.

    I vote definatly...maybe :d

    We're currently considering changing "New Posts" into a menu. One of the options would be: show all Photography threads.

    I'm still using my 35mm Seamaster Pro Ex with a YS-50 strobe and love it. I would definetly like a Sea &Sea forum. It's time to check out the new toys.

    I haven't heard anything from the moderators on whether a decision has been made to create a Sea&Sea camera forum. What is the status of that? There are forums for cannon, sealife, olympus, and nikon cameras so why not have a forum for Sea&Sea?

    Regards,

    Bill

    Do you have 12 members to support your request?

    That would be awesome!!!
    Even though I oppose to all the subdivisions of the phogtography section and I would rather see it all go in the other direction (eliminating the separate make sections as I mentoned in my previous post), so long as the oly, canon, nikon and sealife sections exist I'll back you in your request for a S&S CAMERA section. [please note that I purposely left caemra in caps since having a general sea&sea section will lead to requests for further subivisions of the forum into Ikelite and Inon sections and so on].

    If you scroll thru this thread you will find 12 supporters in favor of the idea of a separate Sea and Sea forum. Although I wasn't aware we had to have a specific number showing support.
