Topics I've Started

A mode with 7D

09 July 2013 - 05:51 AM

I just came back from my first dive trip using my new setup:  7D/Nauticam w/dual ike 125's.
I was previously using a G-series setup.  It took me 3 dives before I started getting decent pictures.
I was first using all Manual settings and my pictures were coming out a bit dark (strobes were
1/4),  I then tried aperture priority and the pics came out poor due to very slow shutter speeds (1/5 - 1/30). 
Finally,  I set speed to around 180-200, ISO = 160-200, stobes on full and Fstop between 10-15 and the pics

started to look pretty good.  

 

My question is why the Aperture priority was so far off?  Was there a setting I was missing?  It makes sense

to me that it would slow shutter speeds down to increase light, as I presume it does not know I would light the

scene up with the strobes?  Is A mode just not suitable for underwater or do you also need to have some ETL

going on to get a proper meter?

 

 


Ikelite strobes with Nauticam housing

20 February 2013 - 09:34 AM

I just purchased a Nauticam housing for my 7D.  What's the easiest way to fire dual Ikelite 125's 

and also get TTL if possible?  I know they are not the most compatible strobes for this but that's

what I got.

 

 

Thanks
