In Topic: Custom White Balance for Video: Replicate Filters with Tint and Kelvin adjus...

Today, 01:33 AM

What you say is correct. There is an issue however that the custom white balance in a camera has usually a given operating range. Once you are outside of the color temperature range the adjustment is not as effective.

A filter has both a warming effect (reducing temperature) and tint effect. Once you are outside your camera temperature range the filter can bring this back in to operate custom white balance properly

So in general you can emulate a filter with temperature setting only on land not under water

In Topic: Fisheye lens options for RX100/Nauticam?

13 April 2014 - 09:09 AM

You have to buy the LD lens option or the AD lens.

The UWL-H100 28M67 can be converted into bayonet using a service part. Then you need an LD bayonet adapter for the housing. Nauticam and Fix sell it.

Fix is hard to find but you can try asking reefphoto

This is the nauticam


You can then convert your close up lens using this part

We are aligned. The reason why a tripod is quicker is because a plan (geometrical meaning) is defined by 3 points. So as soon as you drop the tripod is immediately in balance provided the legs are short and spread enough so that the center of gravity is close to the floor. All you have to do is to tilt the camera to reach alignment. With 4 legs you need to adjust multiple times until they all touch plus if you have no tilting base you will need to revisit again. Who has ever levelled a washing machine on a supposed flat floor knows the feeling. In addition to the reduced impact for less legs I rather use my air to do something else

That device is to work on a flat surface. If you go diving on rocks you won't have that. And if you go on sand you can have 4-5-7 20 legs but stability comes out of balance not planting the legs in the sand as if it was an anchor. Even sand contains living organisms and should make sure your impact on the environment is as little as possible. That's my perspective at least. Results matter but after am sure am not demanding more than needed out of the seabed
