In Topic: Sony full-frame with Nikonos 15mm - thoughts?

Hi;

 

Yes, it works pretty well. I shot that rig and found that I just stopped it down to about f/8 and did zone focus - one setting for closer up and one out to infinity. The lens has a huge depth of field. It's really small and very sharp.

 

I wrote a review with photos and video: Nauticam NA-A7 - Sony a7 Review: Mirrorless in Mexico

Yes, you can use the light continuously in white, red or uv and have it flash. It is not a true strobe, but a very fast, high-powered flash. It is not TTL, so your camera settings will vary the light exposure.

That's not used for anything, just in the manufacturing process.

I used the less expensive 10Bar one on the tests, SSHL-SSHL.

We have the same with a Nauticam/10Bar screw cap that should work ok.

 

I'll have to see about trying it with a red led trigger. Alex did you try a thicker, multistrand cable? We've found the SS ones to be the best, even better than Nauticam, except they only come in SS plug style.

Hi;

 

Here's a couple of studio shots I took using an Oly E-M1 MKII and 60mm lens. 125th/sec f/14 so it seems like there's lots of light with the strobe (really quick flash) feature.
