In Topic: Lenses for Puerto Galera Trip

29 November 2015 - 01:39 PM

have not been to Porto Galera,
but to Anilao, which is very close,so underwater you will find the same animals...
So i would think about taking a Subsee +10 for your 60mm macro lens.
There is a lot of tiny macro stuff, that will need some optical help ;-))
We have been the last two years there for two weeks, next febrary we will visit Malapascua.


In Topic: Macro with the A7R II & Sony FE 90mm macro

Hi Phil,
thanks for your explaination!

The Sony system is getting better in sum, hope that a lot of lenses we need underwater is comeing soon.
They have the best sensors at the moment, a nice macro lens, so lets look in the future ;-))


In Topic: Olympus OM-D E-M1 low light photography questions

27 November 2015 - 12:24 PM

just from my saltwater tank knowledge,
red light is not so much disturbing animals as white light.
But i am sure, they can see both!

Thats the same myth like red is not seen below 5m...
You will find same coralls or algae that have a bright red colour without an external light source....
Its hard to try to fix that on a picture, with or without strobe, but its existing.
Another thing is, that some marine fish have signs you can only see with infra red sources.
Specially differents between male and female.....
That makes only sense, if they can see in that specifc  range of light.


In Topic: Holy Cow! How will I pack a 230mm dome port?

14 November 2015 - 01:49 PM

exept the volume, its often a question of the weight....
Cabin luggage is very limited....
On the other hand, if you put it in your other luggage, if unlucky, it comes maybe too late,...
You can easily get all other stuff anywhere, exept your camera gear....
With Dslr i put the big dome in an old regulator neopren pack, in the boarded luggage...
All other essentials where in my hand luggage....
Now with Mil, all the things fit in the cabin pack...
But i think now about going back to Dslr..


In Topic: Macro with the A7R II & Sony FE 90mm macro

Hi Phil,
so this lens is really good?
If you compare it with the 60mm Oly,
just lens not camera ;-))

I changed my Nex5n because the lack of a real macro lens.
So i came to the Oly mil system...

The sensors from Sony are great, but the lens selection is slowly walking afterwards.....
