In Topic: **Wonderful** Photos winning 3 competitions

I do understand that point. But to appear to accuse a photographer of fraud on a public forum without any proof? I completely disagree with the

approach of the OP.


I don't know Davide Lopresti and I don't follow the competition circuit, having only ever entered a handful over the years. I have no idea of the

submission opening and closing times of the competions in question. If the OP is solely pointing the finger at competition organisers not vetting

finalists as per their stated competition rules then there certainly is an issue with them and their application of rules agreed upon.


My issue with the OP is the annonomous mud slinging. If they are sure of something, they could provide proof and have the courage of his/her

convictions to do so in person. There is no clear proof other than inferrence that the entrant acted without conscience.

Lonelycat, I really do think that if you feel you need to point the finger or effectively name and shame someone you might do so openly rather than by an

annonomous post. This will indeed appear catty and will most likely find you out in the cold. It is quite possible that your accused submitted the image to

multiple comps at same time.






In Topic: Wide Angle Question Tokina 10-17 vs. 11-16mm?

13 April 2015 - 01:35 PM

The 10-17 with a Precision Dome would be a really great combo for an Ikelite housing. Very compact.



As for the 11-16 it's a rectilinear and will need to be used with a large dome 8" minimum, extension and probably a

+2 dioptre. Refer to Ikelite and your supplier on what their recommendations for the the lens in their housing is.




In Topic: Any Comparison? Nikon D3200 vs Oly OMD-EM5 vI

13 April 2015 - 12:17 AM

My 2c. The EM5 is a proven peformer UW and housings can be picked up cheap as it is already old tech.

Can't comment on your lens selection for it. Do a search and read the pages of threads about this camera.


D3200 has a good sensor and is compact but it has no AF motor. If you want AF you are limited to only lens

with internal AF motors. I think that housing a DSLR to just use a kit lens is counter intuitive and uneconimical

as well.




In Topic: Will Nikon D7200 fit straight in D7100 housings

19 March 2015 - 12:06 AM

On the subject of Nikon cropped sensors, does anyone think there is still space for a Nikon D400/D9000 cropped sensor pro body?


Is the D7200 equal competition to the Canon 7D MkII?



I'm one that still folornly believs there is room for a Pro DX camera. Scuttlebut on Nikon Rumours still continues to fuel that hope. Also looking

at it logically the 7200 was only an incremental update and the arrival of the 7DMk2 means Nikon has some catching up to capture the market

for serious crop sensor users. But of course until it does materialize it still continues to be a Mythical Beast.





PS the 7200 fitting into 7100 housing may have well and truely scuppered my plan to pick up a 7100 housing 2nd hand! :angry2:
