I do my first fill with the condom, but after that I drip into the top as with any other carto. Iirc, the Kanger condoms have a spike that goes up the centre hole in the battery connector which makes condom filling a bit slow.

Just gave this a go - it works as claimed, but it is still possible to overfill and have juice come out the air hole at the side of the carto base. Still had to blow through and suffer gurgliness. OK but carris the risk of accidentally using the stick as a toothpick afterwards

Clound 9 vaing sell it iirc. I've only ever seen it used in carts - it's better than the polyester wool, but carts are generally pants so I moved on. Not sure how you would pack it into a carto and have it still work afterwards. I guess somebody has to do that experiment - for science

No I meant the Nikon one posted by lynwit.
I agonised for forever when I was looking to get mine, would really love a DSLR, but I know I'll just end up spending a fortune and then lugging around tons of kit wherever I go. That's why I went for a bridge - for all it's shortcomings, I've had some great pics out of it and it is really easy to use. Canon has a good reputation, nice user interface and good (free) software package. What swung it for me was the swivelly screen whcih means I can hold it above my head and still see what I'm taking a picture of

took a quick look at the spec - that's a super zoom range, but the lens is f3.1 - f5.8, so not very fast I have a Canon G11, with a f2.8 lens and find that it really struggles n lower light and with things that move. The downside with bridge cameras is that their sensors are still very small compared to DSLR, so they don't cope too well in high contrast situations. I often have the problem of highlights being to bright and shadows too dark.
That being said, I still love it for it's compactrness and ease of use.
would love to see some pictures as I got lost around the time of O ring talk :-[ lol I know a ce2 has 2 rings right? the cup seal one and the donut one, oh and one around the base by the battery so three in total. Where on earth would I put them on a tank like set up and how would I seal the cup bit to stop flooding as well?
I meant take the o-ring off the DCT end cap, and put it round the base (battery connector), discarding the winnety silicone ring that came with it.
I thought you might be able to lever the plug out of the whistle tip, since it is designed to seal with the pip on the silicone cup cover.
