How much are you asking for the macro port?

In Topic: Switching to optical sync. D810 continuous release with pop-up flash???

10 May 2016 - 01:16 AM

My pop up flash fried on my first D800 after a few months doing quite a bit of fast burst shooting. And I also seemed to get  a lot of misfires with the optical setup. Switched back to Electrical and much happier. And being able to shoot at 320th and even 400th sec helps a lot in shallow/ bright water.

In Topic: thoughts on mini domes

 I don't really think I will ever cost justify moving to FX, so that isn't a concern. If I did, I would probably go to a big dome anyway, so either way, the 8" I have becomes superfluous.


Regarding the over-unders, one of the friends that has made the move is a pro shooter in BC. He's widely published and does tons of split shots with the mini dome, so it may not be as "impossible" as some would suggest.

You talking about me Stu? ;-)  Heres on eof hundreds of splits I do with the 4" mini. These subjects are about as fast as they get. I also do a lot in deep water. Harder but still better results than big dome. I never have issues with water droplets ruining an otherwise good composition. Every now and then I go and try my 8" and 9.25" again and immdiatly put them back in the closet after one use.  I use the Tokina 10-17. I don't know if any others would work. Certainly not a rectilinear or 24 prime. pink-salmon-close-up-quinsam-river.JPG
