In Topic: Flash triggers???

11 September 2016 - 03:44 PM

I am using Hedwig's flash trigger successfully with the EM-1 and a whole bunch of different strobes (Inon and Sea & Sea). Works like a charm BUT you will need to mess around with the LEDs on the trigger to get them to flash only in the window.

In Topic: Shooting sealions

01 September 2016 - 06:03 PM

In SOCAL I shoot the sealions with an 8 mm Fisheye (EM-1) in a small port system. Manual flash and 1/320 shutter (sometimes 1/250) at f11 or so. Before they show up I set the f stop to get the blue that I want to see then wait for them to come in close. You are right they are zooming along but with that setup you can get a fair percentage of keepers.

In Topic: Macro lens: Olympus 60mm, or Panasonic 45mm?

Clearly Bokeh is subjective but for me the Leica/Panasonic wins. We were just in the Northern Sea of Cortez and I shot a lot of brown cheeked blennies with both lenses in similar backgrounds, will try to post some later today.

In Topic: Macro lens: Olympus 60mm, or Panasonic 45mm?

I have and shoot both. In my opinion the Bokeh on the Panasonic is much better than on the Olympus but the 60 is slightly sharper and focuses slightly faster for me (EM-1, Subal Housing). Neither are hard to handle in my opinion but neither are as simple as a 60 on FF. In terms of macro both lenses shoot 1:1 so the magnification (i.e. the macroness) is identical for either lens although adding a diopter to the 60 will get more mag than the same diopter on the 45.
