Hi Gadip,

 

try to use the Q button,  if you press this button the rear LCD will display all configuration options and you can navigate through this options and make changes using the apperture or speed dials.

 

Cheers


In Topic: TTL Anonymous

Hi Luiz,

 

I spent couple years shooting with 5dmk2 without any TTL because the old Mathias TTL converter that I had working with my 5d didn't work with 5dmk2. I really missed that feature for few months, mainly for fish behavior, but I we are capable to adapt and change our mind to shoot without that making the adjustments manually.

 

Since Feb this year I upgraded to 5dmk3 on Aquatica housing and started to use the YS TTL Converter/C with couple YS120. I am really glad to have it back. It is very reliable.

 

The only cons I have about that TTL converter is related with appertures over f/22 where we need to increase the light compensation using the dial in the converter, but it doesn't vary, I just got in mind the compensation for f/22, f/25 and f/32 and it became automatically for me.

The last thing, I think the Nauticam back buttons to access the camera jostick very hard to press when you use gloves.

I made my decision three months ago to Aquatica for my 5mk3. I didn't dive with Nauticam, but had the opportunity to get both it in hands before decide. The Nauticam looks nice, had lot of engineering onboard, but I felt Aquatica more solid/strong and the simplicity of the commands inside made me believe it should be more reliable and easy to repair.

 

But it was my perception, I think you should locate a near reseller and taste both housings...

 

Cheers. Fabio.


In Topic: Canon 24-105mm underwater?

I tried the 24-105mm on topside with TC 2x, the focus speed isn't so fast, but I think the big issue is about sharpness and colors. I hated the results.
