Thanks! What I call the REEF book is "Nudibranch & Sea Slug Identification - Indo-Pacific"  (I don't have it with me right now).

A few I couldn't get into the first post.


These were a bunch of little crabs scurrying between one crinoid and another on a coral

In Topic: Will TTL still work with 1/64 Built In Strobe?

17 November 2016 - 12:05 PM

I've got more or less the same setup (E-PL5, Z-240, D-2000). There are two possible options for you on the Inon strobes. Well, three:


0) Shoot manual

1) Use the E-TTL in which the strobe itself does the exposure. I've never tried this

2) See if, using the right setting of the magnet switch, you can boost the power of the pre-flash so that the main flash does not suck much out of the camera (this means setting the camera and strobe to TTL)


2) is incompatible with 0) which is why I don't use it.

BTW, you're not going to reduce "shutter lag" per se, but you can get the camera to fire more frequently with the 1/64th setting. However, you'd probably still end up with 2/3 of the frames dark since the external strobe won't be able to cycle as fast as the camera strobe (unless you are using very little power).

In Topic: E-PL5 or E-PL6 Underwater mode Manual exposure

Thanks buddy. But the Malaysian Ringgit isn't strong...

Haha... I might have to make my own gear... Thanks

Ah, sorry. Anyhow, from reading up before I ordered my gear, I do think you can do what you want. Switch into the underwater modes to advance the zoom to one limit or the other and then switch back into manual or whatever. It'll be a little fiddly, but better than nothing.
