In Topic: M mode on Sea and Sea 2g

Check your Av or Tv Settings in M mode. If your last Av is too narrow, or your Tv is too short, then, your LCD display will show a dark frame when you change from Av to M.


This was also happened in DX1G. Use a focus light to make the LCD slightly brighter!

WOW.... your shots are really phenominal. It really gives me hope...LOL, that I can get those kind of results from this Cam. Well done!!! I think I have to crown you the "NudiKing" ;) Are you shooting in Manual strictly?? Specificaly in regards to focus...auto focus or manual? Your macro images are quite a bit sharper than mine, and I'm in auto. Gracias :)

Thanks Greg!
I used to use A mode most of the time because of the LCD in M mode is too dark for me. If I need to use M mode, I have to turn my focus light brighter for me to see and for the DX1G to focus. Auto focus is ok, especially if you use a focus light but the response of the camera is not fast at tall. I use manual focus when I was not able to use focus light. For example, the mandarin fishes mating pictures, I had to preset the focus at about 8 cm, use a large f-stop for better depth of field and push the button when the fishes came together. I guess nudis are good models. They are colorful, don't move a lot and you can get really close.
Have fun with the Dx1G!

The one is an old model and there are prone to flooding which was the experience by many Hong Kong divers.
Here is some new model. http://www.i-divesit...asp?catid=40693

I guess Dx1G is a good camera and here are my photos with it.
I used to use A mode as I found the LCD in M mode is too dark for me and my eyes. I'm using Inon strobe and do have have the problem of miss fire mentioned so far.
