In Topic: iPod Touch

16 February 2008 - 04:53 PM

I love my 16gb iPod Touch. It makes a good photo album (though not nearly as good as my Epson P-2000), it does a great job of playing movies, it handles e-mail well (with the new download), and it even plays music. What I really would like are a better picture viewer (more resolution, more zoom) and a .pdf viewer. The .pdf viewer is my greatest wish. That way I could store manuals, travel information, pictures (?), books, etc. The e-mail program will show .pdfs, but its not a good way of storing them. Still, it works in a pinch. I use one of my e-mail accounts to hold messages with each containing a .pdf. When I have wi-fi, I can view the .pdfs. I can even read .pdf magazines like x-ray and uwphoto.

Actually, I guess there's a third thing that is high on my list. Flash video compatibility.

I have an Tokina 12-24, but I have always used it with the +2 diopter, so I can't really compare with and without.

Its nearly new (only a couple of dives) and I will sell it for a reasonable price. I'm going to move on to a 10-17. PM me if you're interested. US warranty with all packaging. Brand new condition.

I guess I do heavy editing to get a reasonable number or favorites


Thank you for editing. I'd rather see 35 carefully selected and edited shot instead of all 500 (or however many) that you shot.

What kind of camera and lens were you using?

I love diving up there. There is so much variety of life. I was on the Vision a couple of months ago. Loved my new drysuit, too.

In Topic: Trade in my Sigma 15mm FE for a Tokina 10-17mm ?

05 December 2007 - 07:40 PM

I hear ya. I want to dump my barely used Tokina 12-24 to buy a 10-17.

Anybody want to buy a like new 12-24?

In Topic: Your best shot of 2007 (deadline: early Oct)

I couldn't tell when the deadline turned out to be, so here are a couple of my favorites.

Caption: I'm ready for my close-up, Mr. Demille.
Location: Shiprock, Catalina, California
Gear: Nikon D80, Ikelite Housing, Nikon 60mm lens, Woody diopter, Ikelite DS125 strobe
Description: I knew this nudi was in a great position out on a small branch, but I could only hope that the photo was in focus. The skin texture and the transition from purple two orange were just exceptional.

Caption: Yep, I'm another Garibaldi, but a real nice one.
Location: Casino Point, Catalina, California
Gear: Nikon D80, Ikelite Housing, Nikon 60mm lens, Ikelite DS125 strobe
Description: My new dSLR setup was brand new. There's nothing better than a Garibaldi for a patient model. They're bold, curious, and brightly colored.

Caption: Who says the fish in California are boring?
Location: Casino Point, Catalina, California
Gear: Nikon D80, Ikelite Housing, Nikon 60mm lens, Ikelite DS125 strobe
Description: I was experimenting with bluring the background, so I took the photo at a hard angle to the surface, throwing everything in the back out of focus. I didn't realize that the little piece of kelp was perfectly positioned and focused until afterwards.

Thanks for looking
David
