#324627 going for the nauticam 45 viewfinder or second strobe ?

Posted by Deep6 on 17 January 2013 - 08:55 AM

hi,
Im trying to found out what to do first.
Buying the naauticam viewfinder or a second strobe ?
At this moment i have a D7000 with Strobe inon S-2000.
Lenses Macro 60mm AF-D and tokina 10-17.

The second strobe would be handy for better lighting, especially i will dont need any more colour correcting filters for wide angle.

The viewfinder is another story, because i have only 10 percent sight left....
Would this be a great releaf, so that i can see the viewfinder better ?
Would it be more help(better images) or would a strobe do that, bearing in mind my visual problem.

If you like to see some photos of me, so you can see what could be more of a help

I am seconding Steve's suggestion; for macro, you can do a lot with one strobe and a good focus light. Can you try someone's rig with the added view finder?

hmmm makes me question now if I made the right purchase getting the 60mm macro instead of the 12-50 lens and using its wide / macro function on the OMD body


No, I don't think so. I haven't got my rig yet. I like the 12-50 a lot, but I will get the 60 for 1:1 or greater macro. Now take out that great rig of yours and makes us some pictures.

Weidmannsheil!

Managed to flood and cripple my Panny TS-2. Hint, don't rinse under a tap. The camera still works but drains the battery in a few days, but it works great for day trips. Have just bought a Panny TS-4 with an Ikelite housing. Hasn't seen water yet, but I assume its good for a dip or 2.
The cameras work great for kayaking and snorkling. Diving is what I bought the housing for.

I am researching a waterproof P&S for climbing, crayoning, rafting and other foolish pursuits. The Pany TS4 seems to be the best available today, but check out the new Oly TG-1.
