I just returned from Houston Camera Exchange where I met with the local Nikon Rep. I'm very interested in the new Nikon Keymission 360 for use in diving.
The Rep was not well informed on the diving application so I was left to my own devices....and WetPixel.com
So...this gizmo is waterproof to 100 ft and will do 360 photos and videos. One can do Bluetooth transmissions to ones phone or iPad and look at the images with a Nikon software viewer. The quality looks to be GREAT but I wonder what water will to the air-designed lens.
I used to spend about an hour and one half on each dive, editing and workflow. So much time that it interrupted my diving and quit photography.
Yesterday I downloaded Vivid-Pix for Scuba. (www.vivid-pix.com). I was cautious about this but what the heck....If it shortened my workflow and give me the results I wanted, I'm on it!
Well fellow shooters, I spent a couple of hours on it today and was completely amazed.
Basically, one click after selection. Maybe a minor tweak but this software has a bad-ass algorithm that really works! Sadly it only works on .jpg and not RAW, but they will be having an upgrade that will work on .dng.
My .jpg files are 7-10 mb while the RAW files are 40-60 mb.
Like any software, it's not perfect, but this product exceeds its claims. I heartily recommend you download the trial.
There are some of my beginning pics. Please see before and after below.
