Photo Editing Monitors

18 November 2018 - 12:40 PM

Hello all,

 

I hope this is the correct forum for this discussion:)

 

I am looking for advice on a new pair of monitors for photo editing, no video. I currently have a 2010 Mac Pro setup with an AMD Radeon HD 7950 3072 MB video card. CPU has been upgraded to 12 core 3.33 gHz. 

 

I am using Lightroom and some Photoshop.

 

I have a pair of now ancient Apple 30 inch Cinema displays which are losing brightness. They have served well, but are getting tired.

 

I am considering Eizo, NEC higher end monitors, but open to suggestions. Do I need 4K monitors?

 

I will probably replace the Mac Pro if Apple gets their act together in 2019, although, for what I do,  I have no real complaints with my existing tower. I just upgraded it to OS Mojave, so nine years on, it is still current!!!

Nikon 18mm AF-D

23 July 2018 - 09:51 AM

Hello all

 

I am wondering if anyone has actual UW experience with this lens. I have owned it for years and have never taken it underwater. It generally gets mixed reviews topside.

 

I am thinking Seacam Superdome.

Any suggestions on diopters or dome extensions?

 

I have recently bought the Nikon 8-15 FE and will be taking this and the dome to Kimbe. I though this would be a great compact topside lens that could be pressed into UW service if suitable.

FS: Seacam Superdome

24 March 2018 - 06:22 PM

Hello All,

 

Up for sale is my Seacam Superdome. It is definitely used, but in very good shape. 

 

There is some rash on the lower shade. The anodizing on the back is faded, making a nice patina. This is typical of these ports.

 

The glass is in very good shape, with a few very superficial marks that do not photograph. These are not at all visible under water.

 

The neoprene beanie and rear port cover are included.

 

Asking $950 USD, I will pay shipping to Canada and USA. (These list for over $2000 from Seacam USA.)

 

Item is located in Vernon, BC Canada.
