In Topic: How do you keep track of which photos are shot with wet diopters?

15 February 2017 - 06:46 AM

Make a ID stick from a tongue depressor with a 0 on one end, a 5 on the other end flip it over and put a 10 on one end and 15 on the other. Coat it with epoxy and put it on a string attached to your rig. When you have finished taking some pictures take a picture of the proper end of the tongue depressor corresponding with the diopter  just used.  Then you will know that the previous pictures were taken with a (XX) diopter.


It will be easier to do this after the pictures as opposed to before the picture.  You will have to make this a habit to work. 


The other option is to put the proper ID end of the tongue depressor in each shot and crop it out later. 


Good luck.

That looks like a good solution as long as you can get the light to transfer and keep the cables aligned. if you apply a little heat to the tubing it would be possible to straiten it out perfectly.

You will have to heat up the end of the Fiber cable and straiten it out so it could fit in the socket.  trim off the end flush with a sharp razor blade so it is a clean squared off cut. Take a small drill and drill out the old fiber optic from the end that is connected to the housing, the end with the o-ring on it. Drill all the way threw the top of the plug so that the fiber has a strait path. Insert the trimmed fiber-optic cable into the hole and secure it with adhesive, possibly super glue or epoxy. 


Good luck with a temporary field fix.
