In Topic: Sony A 7 Sii with Nikonos 15mm for 4K

06 January 2016 - 12:11 AM

It's excellent, Mark. If you have an old Nikonos 15 lying around, as I do, then it's worth getting the adapter.   However, the A7SII drinks batteries like alcoholic in an open bar!   The WB does have a bit of issue with deeper depths though and MWB though. 

In Topic: Manipulating underwater subjects

05 December 2015 - 01:29 PM

Just a tick over 10 years when the last thread was started regarding this "touchy" subject.  Everyone will have their opinions and some are more "touchy" than others, as you'll see in the thread.  "Set up" shots are difficult to prove, so we have to rely on honesty, which is difficult in itself.  If one goes to macro photography, some form of manipulation/handling is almost necessary for many subjects.  So it's a matter of degree.  Otherwise, one would be limited to the subjects which solely lie in the open.  Everyone has their own limits.  While no site would actively promote wanton destruction of the reef/creatures, pretty hard to draw a line in the sand.  
The flying octopus brought out the discussion years ago.  Even the NHM and BBC can't really see a way out (except for wolfgate!).


In Topic: Diving Palau, Micronesia with Canon 5D III & ML Raw

Wow looking at that workflow, that's a lot of jumping around.  Have you thought of using Resolve or Premiere Pro CC?  Both can edit natively (Well PPCC needs to have the .raw file converted to CDNG) and Resolve has awesome coloring tools.  PPCC works well with its coloring tools, but definitely the tools aren't as detailed or flexible as Resolve.

Nope. you will have to live with the small cursor or switch every time you use PS.

In Topic: confused about insurance for underwater cam operators

29 October 2015 - 04:00 PM

AFAIK, the production company has to carry insurance for the shoot, including actors and crew, including underwater accidents etc.    Of course, that depends on the policy of that school.  You'll need to either get a lawyer to read up the policy.  Good luck.
