In Topic: Best system setup for cave and wide angle photography

05 June 2014 - 02:00 AM

Hi Jools,

the fisheye was a converter, so not to compair with a real lens.
Was not sharp in the corners as i would have liked it....
And there was / is still no longer macro lens available....

The setup was very small, that was the good thing.
But there is now the housing comeing for the new OMDe 10. That looks small as well.

Regards,
Wolfgang

Hi Jools,

in caves it takes a lot of strobes to get good pics....
Have been using only two ( one on the camera, other at buddie ) and in that way you can only light small spots....
If you wanna light a bigger room, it takes 5 to x strobes.
Have met slovakian cave divers in Tulmum, one camera, 5 divers and 10 strobes.....

Had a Sony Nex5 in the nauticam housing before, now changed to Olympus OMD5, and now i am happy.

Regards,
Wolfgang

Hi,
to update this thread.......
I have 2 of this strobes, since years and they always did well....
2 weeks ago i had a pool shooting, and there was a little water in both battery compartments.
Thought that i should have cleaned and greased them maybe a little bit....
So i did this and prepared them again.
Today i did a dive in a melting water lake, high altitude and cold.
Both strobes did well, but i could see some bubbles from one of the over pressure valves from one cap.
Worked still fine.
After the dive i opened both strobes and there was some water in both.
Never had this before.
Could it be that this happens while shallow diving?
Is it possible to repair that valve?

Regards,
Wolfgang

Hi,
1. looks like Lissocacinus laevis
2. from the family Portunus, maybe sanguinolentus
3. not really an idea......
4. could be Platylambrus validus or Daldorfia horrida
5. hermit crabs are not really my thing, could be Aniculus aniculus.....
6. would say Gondactylus smithii, the eyes are left, holding its tail in front for defense
7. closest for me Xenocarcinus conicus

No guarantee for right ;-))
