In Topic: IWUPC prizes

30 September 2014 - 02:58 PM

Good to see you are looking in to doing an article about the issue of unpaid prizes from IWUPC 2013 Adam. Especially if the organisers intend to run it again.

 

Be interesting to perhaps have some comments from The Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy in whose name the event was attributed to. I also wonder

to if that government department is accountable to a higher government level or if the Indonesian Anti-Corruption Commision(KPK) might be interested in having

a look at the situation? Was the event actually sanctioned and operated by the Ministry or was it simply private individuals (as the "it's all being handled by random

people with hotmail and gmail addresses" suggests).

 

Cheers,

Jim.


In Topic: thoughts on mini domes

Shooting crop sensor with the 10-17 a mini is definitely the way to go me thinks. Will sure be easier to swim about with to.

Only caveat I can see is losing the ability to practically do under over compositions.

 

Cheers,

Jim.


In Topic: Advice on a Subsee holder

Hey Dave,

 

AFAIK the Deeproof adapter is the best option, but then I haven't researched for other options for some time. The one for 100mm ports

works well on the MP60. I liked the solid construction and ability to flip diopter in and out. I did use a hole on the unit to attach a "just in

case" lanyard though the unit never showed any sign of slipping off.

 

Cheers,

Jim.


In Topic: Z240 erratic behavior after 3 year - expectable?

Time to start at the start again and go through all your steps, from camera settings, to strobe settings and all equipment connections.

 

*Check camera flash setting. Make sure it isn't set to Red Eye or something odd that will affect sTTL sync.

 

*Assuming a possible issue with optical cables, did you check both ends of cable?

 

*Have you removed the ACC magnet to see if it is corroded and the possible issue?

 

*Check over all camera settings with others using the same. Lots of info on your camera here- http://wetpixel.com/...showtopic=52608

 

 

Cheers,

Jim.
