Hmmm, just curious. Is it a Tokina 10-17 or a tokina 11-16? I don't think there is a 11-17.

Hey guyz I just wanted to report that I put all this advise into practice and here is the results.


If you want to see more in following days let me know

In Topic: GoPro 2 Recomendations at Tiger Beach

15 January 2012 - 06:49 PM

Hello All! I will be joining the good folks of the Shear Water on a trip to Tiger Beach this summer and was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the efficacy of bringing a GoPro for some unique video. My main rig is a Canon T2i with aquatica housing, 8" dome, Tokina 10-17, and two S&S 110A strobes. Although I can shoot HD video on the T2i, I am considering purchasing a Hero2 and anti blur housing, along with a pole attachment of some sort in the hopes of achieving perhaps some over under shots from the boat or some very close ups of the pointy end of the sharks without having to worry about scratches on my dome port. Any thoughts or advice would be great. Thanks!


You wonder about how effective the GoPro is; you might check out my vid on YouTube.

It shows how versatle it is.

Have you checked whether you need a diopter with that lens?

I am going to use manual settings like suggested and auto focus on the lens.
I can always turn off the AF.

I will let you know in a couple of days how it turns out, as I am on a 2 month dive trip.

Great idea
Anyone else have any other suggestions?

I will start using all manual settings, they are easily adjusted on a D7000.

I am still perplexed about the static setting of the wide angle lens,
I have tried between 3 & 7 ft, but all the us close pix are out of focus.
The auto focus goes nuts so it is out of the question.
It would be nice if it worked though.

Just for fun set your camera to manual, 200 ISO, F/8, 1/180 and adjust your strobes for the light you want. Might take a couple tries but I bet you will like it. If the water is too dark slow your shutter speed slightly.
