In Topic: RAW conversion issues for blue water (pelagic) images

Have a look at this:




Being a Canon shooter I found that my blue water photos looked much nicer when I use the Canon Standard profile instead of the default Adobe profile.  The Canon Standard profile is what my cameras are set to produce the JPEG that is shown on LCD after you take a shot.


This has changed a bit in the latest release that came out last week.  Read this:



In Topic: Can you use Nauticam silicone on Sea&Sea blue o-ring?

This is an extract from a table for matching various oils and grease with materials.  The Elastomer section shows that the PFPE grease is the only one that is compatible (indicated by green arrow pointing up) with all elastomers listed.  If you want to use only one grease for your O rings PFPE greases such as Christolube, Tribolube, Krytox, etc is the way to go.

Read my comment from February this year on Nauticam vacuum system battery life in this thread:




The battery eventually went flat and had to be replaced during a trip to Anilao in May this year.

In Topic: iPad Pro only Lightroom workflow

I just did my first trip leaving my laptop at home and using an iPad pro instead.  I used a Sandisk iXpand flash drive to backup my raw files:




Very quick and compact way of backing up.


I initially had some problems backing up from my 256GB iPad Pro to the 128GB iXpand drive and after some correspondence with Sandisk they discovered there was a problem with using a 128GB iXpand drive with the 256GB iPad Pro but they had tested using a 256GB iXpand drive and it worked fine:



Thank you for your patience. We discussed this case with our L3 technicians and found out that we were able to recreate the issue with the 128GB iXpand Drive whereas with the 256GB iXpand Drive there were no issues. Also, we are looking forward to resolve the issue with the iXpand USB 3.0 128GB drive in our future updates.


Further, in this case, I would like to offer you a replacement for your product with the iXpand USB 3.0 256GB Drive



I got around this problem on my trip by loading from my camera to iPhone 7 to iXpand drive and it worked fine. 


When my replacement 256GB iXpand drive arrives I'll test it and let you know how it goes.
