In Topic: Flat port vs dome port - pros and cons?

10 January 2017 - 08:36 AM

The dome port is (mostly) for wide angle. a dome port makes a virtual image (http://www.camerasun...ome-port-theory) that you then focus on. the image is curved not planar and is most suitable for wide angle lenses.  The flat port is what you want for your macro lens setup, it comes with a bit of built in magnification.

The camera is great. You can get an ikelite housing for it for about $1500 or so. You can also get a Meikon housing (labeled perhaps Polaroid) from B&H for $350 with a port good for the 18-55 lens.

Great lens, very little CA. Will get you to 2:1 more or less.

In Topic: Time to upgrade... And now?

I would not recommend either machine as my main lightroom/photo editing machine; they are both harder to color calibrate than dedicated computers. That being said, we travel with a MacBook pro 16gb, 500G hard drive and we use it for both LR and Final Cut while we are on trips.  Also remember that the new MacBook pro no longer has a card reader built in and is USB C only. You will need an external card reader and a dongle.

alternatively look at these 'http://www.divervisi...ch=fiber&page=3

lets you use much simpler fiber cables (I make my own) with S&S type plugs
