In Topic: Black Background

 Key thing is to shoot a subject that is "above" the background, shoot toward the empty water column if the subject allows.  If not, try using a snoot. 

In Topic: Are you shooting 30-50-60 FPS?

10 May 2017 - 07:01 AM

I shoot 30 on my 7200, 60 is not an option at 1080p.  No need to shoot 25, 60 would be a nice option on that camera though. As KC mentioned, its about being able to slow it down.  the 25 and 30 comes from the days of PAL and NTSC i guess, NTSC (30) is the north american version, PAL (25) is the European model. PAL was a bit better as it had more resolution 720 x 576 as opposed to NTSC which is 720 x 480.  And then there is movie film which is/was 24 fps... But I think its all mumbo jumbo now :)


The key thing is to keep the same ratio:  if you shoot at 30fps and 60fps you are golden.  If you shoot at 25 then you will want to mix that with 50.  don't mix 25 and 30 or 25 and 60 sort of thing.  Stay consistent..

In Topic: Nikon D7500 vs D500 Comparison

Except for the 4K option for us video types..



On Nikon's specifications, I would probably not upgrade the D7200 to the D7500. Of course until someone gets one and uses it underwater, you never really know.


Sadly, it does look like controls are in different positions so existing housings will not be compatible. Once again, until the camera appears and we try to put it into a housing, no one really knows!

It only works on international Garuda! Learnt that lesson the hard way.

Strange, I do it all the time domestically.  They had canceled it for a while but its been back for quite some time.  I suggest printing this out and keeping it with you just in case: https://www.garuda-i...tequipment.page

Tell Garuda you have Dive Gear, you get an extra 23kg free luggage.  You need to say this when you check in
