In Topic: New TSA rules and underwater strobes

16 November 2017 - 09:26 PM

there seems to be no rhyme or reason at this point as to whether or not they make you unpack everything and seems to be up to the discretion of the TSA agent. flew cross the US recently. didnt have to take anything out except laptop. On the way back literally every piece of equipment had to come out and go in separate bins. if this starts being enforced its going to be a huge PITA :/

In Topic: D810 vs D7200

why not the d500? or even d7500? i've used both the d810 and the d500 and in 95% of situations prefer the d500 for underwater shooting.

we've discussed just recently the nikonos 13. I sure as s**t am not selling it but i sure as S**t want this thing also hahaha


I love the compactness and IQ of the 13mm so its not going anywhere, but the versatility of this lens also is highly appealing.

Hey Geo. 


The shallower DOF I was referring to is a characteristic of the nikonos. It has a shallower DOF than a normal fisheye so on a high res FF body (which has narrower DOF than cropped sensor) the focus will need to be even more spot on

I have the rs 13, and I believe Adam does as well. Its spectacular. I've not actually used any other lens, wide or macro, since i had it converted. I love it on both apsc and full frame but i've not gotten to use it enough to have a firm opinion on which format I prefer it. The DOF is far shallower than a normal fisheye. This can present a problem on a high res full frame body and that is an issue i have noticed but its easy enough to work around. The only 'complaint' with the 13mm is the fact that it cant be used for splits. The sharpness and 'look' of the images from the RS imo is far superior to any other option i've used (not having used the Nauticam WAP converter). 


Tangent aside, I am very much looking forward to using the RS on the d850 but I am curious as to how the much higher res + already shallower than normal DOF of the lens will perform
