nice pictures from Nauticam

I have been using Nex cameras last year, buying 5n (flooded) followed by 5r. Also got 6 and 3n

5r is currently my camera at service underwater

the 30mm macro is a good macro one, providing reasonably sharpness down under. I tried the old 18-55 and newer 16-50 lens but not much interested. Can be a flexible one.

However, other prime lenses are great including 35 f1.8, 50 f1.8. The Sigma f2.8 lenses at 19mm, 30mm and 60mm are great too

Upcoming Zeiss macro at 50 should not disappoint any one

In Topic: D800 write to card delay

19 January 2014 - 11:46 AM

Everyone still having this issue? I got a D800 a few days ago and it didn't happen to me yet, I have been shooting with a single SD card (CF slot empty).

The writing speed of a card is crucial to D800 that my single file can be as large as 60Mb. So I got around by using CF only trying to buy one with fastest writing speed. As a budget user I found the Transcend 400x UDMA 7 64Gb version....with measured writing speed approaching 70MB/s. As for SD card, you need to buy those listed as writing >90 but I cam quite sure there should be a delay.
