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.
