In Topic: Olympus 60mm macro focus distance display.

On a similar note, i wish sooo badly that Oly would let you select the focusing range electronically, as the lens switch isn't accessible while in a housing.
I've sent them the suggestion months ago, no feedback...

In Topic: Good Nikon FX Format WA Lens?

Sigma 15mm 2.8 fisheye has, in effect, the same minimum focus distance as the Tokina 10-17.
 
I didn't want to use my Zen 100mm dome with the Sigma, as I didn't want to shave the lens hood off, and after weighing the pros and cons as well as speaking to some knowledgable folks (Thanks Jack at OOS), I chose the 170mm Zen glass dome. 


Good to know, thanks

In Topic: White balance and the E-M1

Related question - does one need full Photoshop to do the basic manipulations to photos that I'm most likely to do, like WB adjustment, or does something like Photoshop Elements or Lightroom have enough capabilities?  From what I've read, Lightroom is more for photo organizing.


During your dive you could, from time to time, e.g after a significant change of depth/ambient light, shoot at a neutral object for reference.

Later in lightroom, you take that reference pic, automated white balance adjustment via the picker and... you just copy-paste that WB adjustment setting to the next few RAW pictures, as simple as that :-)

Any good FX lens good for CFWA? When i was shooting DX with the tokina 10-17 and nikon 10-24, i was quite happy with the ability to use small domes (4" and 6" respectively). I don't like big domes :-/

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

07 July 2014 - 05:44 AM

Well after writing my previous posts I've been diving, and had the surprise to see both strobes were failing (either not shooting, or shooting too weak), whereas I would have expected the strobe connected with the right FO to behave well!

Then later in the dive all went back to normal, meaning both strobes worked perfectly, be it in TTL or manual, even the left one (the one which failed to trigger strobe on land).

Very strange! But anyways I've ordered two new FOs (35 EUR each), will shoot with them and see if I have any issues.

 

I'll report my findings here after a few shooting dives.

 

Thanks again for all the advice!
