In Topic: WANT TO BUY: Neoprene port cover (any make) 8cm diameter

Today, 09:11 AM

Neoprene glue, a piece of a old wetsuit and a hour of time will do the trick to,

but won't look so nice as a professionally made.
You may ask also someone who makes/repairs wetsuits to do it, it's not a big deal!

Instead of a neoprene hood i use a right sized tupperware who protects better than a neoprene hood.


In Topic: Macbook pro retina and photos editiding or PC

Yesterday, 06:00 AM

I notices some severe color difference between my buddies retina MacBook Pro and my ZBook 17, both calibrated.
As i travel a lot i have this ultrafast HP ZBook 17 and calibrate with a Spyder Pro and the ZBook 15 and 17 are available with IPS panels and HP call them DreamColor.
Lenovo has also Laptops with IPS panels and i had several Lenovo laptops with good quality and lifetime.

I believe that for photography work a fast I7 16GB laptop is fast enough and for light to medium video work also,

rendering big video projects with a lot of effects, titles will be much faster on a dedicated stand-alone pc/mac with specialized hardware.


In Topic: Fluid video tripod head

20 November 2014 - 06:15 AM

I use above water this head: Manfrotto 128RC Micro Fluid Video Head.
It is a cheaper head and works reasonably fluid in air and i think it will work near perfect in a fluid,

as it will attenuate unwanted movements.
A solution for no current conditions would be to add stabilizer fins to slow down movements of pan and tilt.

Disassembling and washing trougly with destilled water will slow down corrision!



In Topic: Good Nikon FX Format WA Lens?

I agree with Alex: 15mm Sigma fisheye and the ultrasharp Nikon 16-35 F/4 G ED VR


In Topic: Dome reflection ?

12 November 2014 - 01:57 PM

The transparent neck of the Ikelite ports let light passing inside, creating this reflections on the inside of the dome  or plan port.
I made a sleeve of a old wet suit to block out the light, painting or simply using gaffer tape will do the trick also.
What you see as reflections are the silver "decorations" on your lens or just reflections on the lens barrel.
