All,

This week I will try to make some pictures with an Canon 7D with EF-S60mm lens.

I will make these in Holland (green not to clear water).

What settings would you suggest for the camera. (I will use one Inon 240 flash).

Regards,

Martijn

Is your strobe configured for optical slave flash or hardwired flash?

My starting point with my Canon T2i and EF-S 60mm with dual S&S 110A strobes (slave fired) is 1/160, f14-f22. Center point focus. ISO200.

(Primary) Nauticam 550D, Canon T2i, Canon 60mm macro, Canon 100mm IS, Tokina 10-17FE, Zen 100mm domeport, Nauticam 180deg viewfinder, Dual S&S YS-110a, SOLA 600 focus light, Dual AOI RGBlue video lights, GoPro Hero 2

 

(Backup) Olympus E-PM1, PT EP-06, Olympus 14-42 II, Olympus 60mm macro

About the same for the green/blue here in Los Angeles but I think ISO 160 is a little less noisy (for me) and I typically start at 1/200 and F11 or so depending on how much DOF you want.
