Anyone dived in the Romblon region of the philipines? I have a chance to go there next Feb, and wondering is this a good diving location?

 

 


Whats lights are using for DSLR video?

21 February 2014 - 01:11 AM

A few months back Ive jumped from a D300 to D800.  Now I have video capability!!! The majority of the time I will just shoot stills, but I would like to do a bit of video. 

LEDs seem to be getting more and more powerful, and cheaper in parallel.  Just saw the Mangrove VC-4L6X, 6750 lumens, 85 CRI at a price of 850 dollars, sounds good.  What lights are people using?

Most interested in shoting wideangle (Sigma 15mm FE).  Also shooting wrecks at depth 60-70m reagion.

 

 

 

 


More super macro questions

18 December 2013 - 12:55 AM

I have just taken the FX plunge (D800) after a decade of DX (D70, D300).  I've invested in a 105VR and can use my old sea and sea NX stanard flat port with the SX extension after a small modification to the inside of the port.  Now to the questions;

What are my best options for super macro

 

I have a 6T diopter, but will need to purchase the 40mm extension to use this.  Adding the 40mm exntension will mean there is about 2.5cm gap between the diopter and the port glass, will this have any negative effects?  Will it have any negative effects if I add a wet lense (e.g. subsee)?  If people think the 6T is a good option I will most likely also purchase the subsee +10 to use with and without the 6T

 

Am I better off purchasing subsee +5 and +10 and forgetting about the 6T?  Or should I be considering one of the other wet diopter options???

Anyone good with electronics and built their own leak detector based on a barometer?  This looks like a good start;
