In Topic: Anyone with Symbiosis flash and Sony camera?

09 February 2017 - 01:52 AM

It seems that your Symbiosis flash is slower to ignite if you use a higher power setting.


You might want to try four things:


1) Check from the camera menus whether you have set the flash to sync either pre or post curtain. Selecting pre curtain should give a longer reaction time window for the flash.


2) Try using a longer exposure time. You could try to find out if there is any correlation between the exposure time and maximum usable Symbiosis power setting.


3) Try it with a fully charged battery


4) If you purchased the housing and strobe from the same local dealer, ask for their help. However, if you mail ordered from different sources, you are on your own concerning compatibility issues.


Best Regards

The shortest extension is 10mm.

Please note that the curvature of different domes (and manufacturers) vary. Thus the best guess would to find out the dome to sensor distance in the corresponding Aquatica housing and then workout the necessary extension with the dome connected via the adapter in a Nauticam housing.


In Aquatica's port chart, they recommend to use a 48453 extension with the Tokina 10-17+1.4xTC. The 48453 has a nominal length of 28.5mm. There might be differences in the camera body positioning to the port hole of the Aquatica and Nauticam housings. Ignoring this, a very rough guess would be to try out either the 10mm or 20mm Nauticam extension rings.

I believe OP is referring to the same dilemma I have. If you login at front page of wetpixel.com, the wetpixel.com front page, Full Frame, Articles, TRIPS, Contests, Divefilm and About pages do not show your logged in status, i.e. do not show my account name anywhere and neither show a logout option. On the the Forums page and its subpages show your logged status and allow you to actually logout.

In Topic: Custom white balance and noise

18 January 2017 - 02:08 AM

Why not just custom white balance whilst descending to target depth? E.g. white balance at say 20 meters and then continue to 40 meters. This way you eliminate some of the blue or green color cast, but are not yet boosting red to extremely noisy levels.
