Focus problems, 7D, 60mm Macro+Aquatica Minidome

20 December 2014 - 03:10 AM

Hi everyone,  


Here is a question for you techies out there! 


After reading a few posts on shooting with the Canon 60mm Macro behind a minidome I decided to try it out today in the pool before heading to Australia to hopefully shoot some seadragons and other medium sized subjects. 


I have a Canon 7D, Canon 60mm USM, AquaticaA7D housing, Aquatica 100mm minidome and Aquatica extension rings.  


I tried it 3 different ways:


1: Without extension ring, it could hardly focus, it would only focus on subjects >50cm from the front of the lens but even then with a lot of "searching" for focus.


2: I tried it with the 18456 (16,5mm) extension ring, and that helped but I still did not get 1:1 magnification, minimum focus distance was still increased and the focus was still a bit slow


3: Finally I tried with the 18453 (28,5mm) extension ring and it worked well. 


Can anyone explain to me why this is? It seems that other people have managed to use the 60mm without any extensions?


Best regards, Morten

Favorite dive-sites in New South Wales?

23 October 2014 - 03:39 PM

Hi everyone! 


I will be heading to Sydney to visit family in January 2015 and would like to get a couple of dives in while I am there. 


I don't mind driving around a bit as I have a full month time there. 

So lets line them up, what are your favorite dive-sites in NSW and why? 


I have a fair amount of experience, currents/rough conditions is no problem. 


As usual your advice is much appreciated! 

Lots of greetings from sunny Bali, Morten
