In Topic: Best lens to start with

15 March 2014 - 03:58 AM

Wod t go with the Sigma 17-70 lens as you only lens. Bit. Bad lens, but something you would want too add to your collection. Mine doesn't come out often.

First 2 lenses, IMHO,with a crop sensor camera, would be a tokina 10/17 FE anda Nikon 60 macro

In Topic: Best "Silent" SLR or Mirrorless Camera?

19 February 2014 - 02:57 PM

I think, by the sound if it, you are looking for a sound blimp for your camera. If you are not familiar with them, they are a housing, just like what you have for underwater use and is primarily used by photographers who work on films set, theatre, or anywhere else that you need to silence the camera. Never used one, but I assume it is much lighter than the UW setup.

Hope this helps

In Topic: Super Macro with NEX

20 June 2013 - 12:41 PM

It does work, but wouldn't it be much easier to shoot with a DSLR camera like a Nikon or Canon?  By the time you add the housing, the strobes and focusing lights it would seem that the smaller size advantages of the NEX7 camera have been all but eliminated.   And you've lost the DSLR advantages of thru-the-lens viewing, auto-focus, true macro lenses and reliable TTL underwater flash.

Jason down sized from a D7000. Thats why he's shooting the NEX. He can get it all in 1 carry bag!

Hey Jason,
Are these from Blue Herron in early Dec during the macro course?
Hope all is well.

In Topic: Nikon announces the D7100

To some extent yes! You can call it a lot of things, but it is effectively digitally zooming ( cropping)  into the Photo.
However, you loose pixels at the same time.
TC etc are not throwing away pixels. So, there is the difference.

Even when you "throw" away those pixel, you still got plenty left though. If memory serves correctly, doesn't it give you an 18mp file? Which is plenty. Hell my Nikon D90 is 12mp and i have not had any trouble with not having enough pixel to print. I've printed up to 20x24 without any issues. Just my 2 cents.

I dont think that it would work. I wouldnt think that the plunger would move if you lost pressure.
