DS125/Salve sensor/4040 settings
Posted 23 September 2002 - 07:18 PM
I used both P mode and A mode - in A mode aperture was set to F9 - but all the shots used 1/30 sec (which I think accounted for the lack of sharpness).
Could any other users with the same equip' let me know what "regular" settings they prefer for the DS125/slave sensor/4040 combo??

I've never had much luck with P or A mode because of the problem you're having......camera picks a shutter speed that is usually too slow.......I usually shoot in manual mode and start with a shutter speed of 1/125

I have completely given up on the Ikelite TTL selection on the strobe which has proven quite frustrating, especially for macro shots.

During the next couple of weeks I am intent on putting a small report in the dive destinations section with some of the photgraphs.
To answer you query quickly - for macro life I was stunned! On every dive I saw things I had never seen before - it was so good I extended my stay there - the list was endless devil fish, frog fish, angler fish, leaf fish, spanish dancers, reticlated nudibranchs, dragonets, pipefish, murex, sea hare, flatworms nudis and slugs galore, mantis shrimp etc etc.
I normally dive in Thailand but on the basis of my trip it was "Thailand 3 Philippines 9" - I was at Puerta Gallera with Atlantis whom I cannot speak highly enough of, the resort, the management and the guides/instructors were not only extremely professional but very very freindly and accomodating also.
I will definitely go back.
