Topics I've Started

Photographing cuttlefish eggs

05 October 2017 - 08:29 PM

I'd like some real information on doing this.  I know that they can be forced to hatch by using lights and I know that people have taken hatching shots set up like this.  This seems like not a great practice to me.  Thoughts?


And how about taking shots of them in the eggs but then flipping the coconut or shell or whatever back over to let them go on in peace & relative safety.  Harmful?  No biggie?

choosing a flipper

30 August 2017 - 04:34 PM

I'm looking for a flip holder for dioptres as screwing one on and off underwater is a bit of a pain in the numpty.  Here's what i have:

Nauticam housing

Nauticam 100mm macro port with threaded front

Subal 60 macro port with no threads

Nauticam SMC

Noodilab dioptre

Subsee +10


I'd like to be able to take two dioptres and ideally have one flipper for both ports.  I may add a Nauticam port with threads for the 60 macro at some stage, but haven't decided yet.

I've had people tell me that the flips don't work very well and it's better to screw/unscrew as needed, but then others have said they only use the flip holders. 


I really need some advice and guidance.  Thanks.
