In Topic: Nikon D810 in D800 housings: Compatibility check

20 August 2014 - 06:47 PM

I read things like this and feel all of your pain.  I guess this is the reason that I only seem to upgrade only every 7 years or so- the housing cooperating with the camera and the camera needing significant advances to dictate a purchase is my trigger point.  Happily, I think the D800E is not too far behind the newer camera as far as my shooting techniques go and Ill await whatever Nikon comes up with 5-6 years from now along with a commercially available housing for that camera,,, until then, Im still shooting the D800E and not having any regrets- except for the new toy jealousy.

In Topic: acrylic vs. glass domes

26 March 2014 - 05:27 PM

another for option 1- repairable if scratched; and another- easier to pack-  I have used an 8 inch acrylic aquatica dome going back to the days of film and lenses that probably arent even sold anymore- the acrylic on this dome has been repolished once and looks like new now and Ive never had an issue with the 16-35 behind it which is the only wide lens I use anymore.  I don't personally do or care for split shots so that has never been an issue.

In Topic: Lightroom clone tool help

Lightroom still isnt up to par with PS on the ability to do things like "content aware" deletion/patchings or non-circular type patching corrections.  those appications and stitching keep me having a subscription to Photoshop.  Lightroom is catching up in quite a few functions, but not those.

In Topic: Your Favourite/Best Image of 2013

my favorite wide angle and macro shot of 2013- both from Palau- the wide angle is self explanatory, the macro is clownfish eggs nearing time to hatch- merry, merry to you all and good shooting in 2014
