Flash setting on Red Eye?


In Topic: Soft images with nikon d500 and nikkor 16-35mm.

......All of my images were soft-even some taken of a stationary moray eel on site.I tested the lens/port/ext. ring combo on land and the resulting images were sharp.....

D.K.S

 

Does the Nikkor 16-35mm require the use of a diopter behind a dome?

 

It sounds like the lens isn't correctly focusing on the virtual image.

 

Cheers,

Jim.

Coconut Octopus in plain mode? Isn't showing the lines radiating out around the eye that a Day Octopus would have.

In Topic: New lens - 12mm F2.8 zero distortion

It's a full manual lens; focus and aperture. So not very practical for UW.

In Topic: Reply for image/footage request for free

That's a good point about checking first if they are prepared to pay the appropriate dues. On request for image, usually via Flickr, I state

that the image desired is available for licensing and ask for the print run/usage details. I also state they can deal direct or I can upload to

where I have my humble collection of stock images; Alamy. If they want to deal direct I'll crunch the usage parameters through the Alamy

pricing system for a similar image and round the price to what the image is valued to me. For example I had a recent image request for an

old, low quality image and rounded down the price accordingly. They accepted and paid promptly and also agreed to send a copy of book

once printed.

 

Cheers,

Jim.
