In Topic: D80 to D90 Ikelite Conversion?

01 October 2008 - 11:49 PM

Heck as far as i'm concerned i couldn't care less, but it is something we should put forward to housing makers. We've reached a point where camera layouts are very similar between upgrades, it's logical to opt for cheaper housing conversions instead of having to buy a complete housing every time. It's nothing of the impossible, but of course any housing maker will be glad to sell you a complete new housing instead of a mere conversion kit.

I could bet the back of the ike d90 housing fits perfectly on the d80 front.

I asked ikelite, here's their answer:

Both the front and back assemblies are different between the D80 and new D90 housings. Therefore, you would need to purchase the appropriate new housing model 6809.1 to accommodate the new D90 camera selected. This new housing should become available in a few days.

Hmmmm..., i guess we need to actually try the d90 back on the d80 housing and see. Any volunteers?


In Topic: in-camera histograms

05 September 2008 - 02:47 AM

What helped me was the calibration of acr, by using a macbeth color checker test shot and an online script. Now, when i load my nefs into acr, they look almost identical to the in-camera jpeg. This seems to be a general problem of acr and nikon cameras. Without calibration, contrast, brightness and hue - specially in the red channel - are way off.
Still, the basic problem of camera histogram indicating clipping, when the nef is not, persists. I'll give uniwb a try.

Great post, it really is a pain in the butt to come home and find out that the in-camera histogram was way off compared to the raw.
Can this be done for the D80? I'm exclusively using acr, however i have the nikon software installed.

To really convince me, we'd have to compare D300/200/80 NEF files.

I'm waiting to see some D80 vs D90 raw files, underwater, same scene, same lens, same ports. Until we see those, all is speculation.
