Would a simple mirror do?  Then you would not even need to get your camera wet.

Another possibility is to build a periscope (using two mirrors).  Then you could operate your camera 'topside' and still see underwater.


Here is an example.  Someone made a periscope to shoot video underwater without getting the extremely high-speed video camera wet.  

In Topic: How to display EXIF data including copyright info in exported JPEG file in Li...

Get a program called "Exiftool.exe"

Use it to confirm that the copyright info is not really there before you pull your hair out over this. 




You can also use Exiftoole.exe and similar programs to find out what lens, exposure, and shutter speed your hero photographers use :-) 



In the future, try to set up lightroom to add your copyright information during import. 


And for those that might not be aware, check your camera; some models allow you to enter copyright information and it is automatically added to exif.

In Topic: Interesting Reflection

You think you have reflections? 

I have you all beat !


Extra points if you can guess what lens I was using :-)



In Topic: Anyone tried the AOI RGBlue video light?

The downside (IMHO) is the same of the Sola: On/Off and power selection buttons are on the top side of the body.


XIT 404 came up with a solution to that.




You still won't be able to see the battery monitor lights.


This thing is interesting.  It is all mechanical.  The red button moves a cable that moves a 'lever' with two magnets in it that fits over the Sola light. 


You install it with the sola light OFF.  The sola light 'button' stays in the off position.  The magnets move in the XIT 404 release thing and that's how you can control the light.


Have not tried it myself underwater, just in the showroom.
