Thoroughly enjoyed this. Absolutely gorgeous. :notworthy:  Loved one of the edits the most, where the Nudi brings out its gills as also the beginning. Thanks for sharing. I wish i could learn to edit videos :-( :-(

A 100 mm is always a better choice as you get more space between the camera and subject. Also a shallower depth of field helps. Most subjects in Lembeh can be covered by this lens. A diopter is useful for getting some creative images and helps with the really teeny weeny ones. I normally carry one. That said the 100 mm is also good enough to cover most. Worse case a bit of cropping is always a possibility.

#372631 2 X Subsee +10 stack together !

Posted by diggy on 14 April 2016 - 11:28 PM

I have used the SMC and have got some really good images which are tac sharp. The really difficult part is using this with the Nauticam super multiplier added to the SMC. Here are some images that have been taken with both stacked together. I was quite pleased with the bokeh kind of result. BUT NOT easy to use.

#371410 Taking a Poll.. How many of you Check your Rig vs. Carry On?

Posted by diggy on 11 March 2016 - 12:02 AM

I carry the housing(minus ports) and strobes in my laptop haversack. The camera's/lenses/video lights etc are in my lowepro hand carry cabin bag with rollers. The large dome, arms, 60mm and 100mm ports are in my checkin dive bag.

#346967 Using Video Lights for Still Photography?

Posted by diggy on 29 April 2014 - 01:38 AM

Hi Ammar,


On a twilight/night dive, i forgot to open the strobe on the camera, which was inside the housing. Luckily had also attached two sola 2000 and shot some images with both on full power. There was some processing involved, but here are two examples. Unless u have some really powerful lights, i dont believe that video lights are really an option for still images. Though for stationary and slow moving subjects they may work. Increasing the ISO would help solve this problem, albeit not completely in my opinion.


The puffer was shot 1/100 @ f 4.5 ISO 100 and the frog fish 1/50 @ f 4.5 ISO 100


I had seen a guy in Phillipines shooting with two sola’s 4000 lumen each with some nice results.


Hope this helps.
