Materials for home made snoot - Camera guys take a look

13 April 2012 - 11:43 AM

So I got plans to build a home made snoot from an UW Photography online magazine. I got the arms, the fiberoptics and the mounting for 2 snoots with 2 arms each. I even got a bigger arm if you got use for that. The catch? I dont have the time to finish the project and probably wont be able to use it soon since we are getting a new baby in the next 2 months. I have spent well over $175 and Im reallistic I wont get anywhere near that back. If you are interested let me know. We can work the specifics of what parts you are interested and come to some kind of package and total price. I have some pics below. Please let your buddies know. Send me a PM if you are interested. Thanks...

Canon S90 something is not right

26 July 2011 - 05:17 AM

Hello:

Its been a while. Need some advice/help guys. I have an S90 on a FIX enclosure. I paired it with a reefnet subsee +10 lense and an Inon Z-240. The tray is an optics planet handles and aluminum tray with UL arms. Here are my main problems so far.

1) The thing is not ergonomic, seems no matter how I grab it or reconfigure the arms/handles its always giving me pain. Specially reaching the trigger while holding all the metal. Any of you guys got a tray/arm setup thats working? Thinking of going to 2 strobes but having issues with 1, can imagine with 2.

2) For macro shots using the subsee lense. Its tunneling a bit, which requires me to zoom in to correct. But the more I zoom the further away I have to be from the subject to get in focus. Is that something specific to this camera or is it the lense? Loosing sharpness and light because of this corrective action. Somewhere I read this camera is not too macro friendly.

3) Night dives, because Im adding a focus light to the hot shoe Im forced to go to either side with the strobe. Seems I get a lot of half faces when I do that. Did not try going on top, but other than adding a second strobe (look at item 1) what else can I do.

Thanks...
