#386081 D500 or 5D iv, for AF, macro/wide, battery life and on land use

Posted by trimix125 on Yesterday, 09:13 AM

Hi,
i have a Hugyfot housing for the D500.
And used a Nikon 85mm macro on the last trip.
Cheap and very leight weighted.
Alternative i have a 60mm AFS, and a 70 - 180mm macro zoom.
The Sigma 105mm OS macro was great, very sharp, but got stolen with my first D500.
With my D300 i often was using the af to get close to the focus point and then move back and forward.
The D500 just nail it.....

Regards,
Wolfgang




#385762 Batteries for strobes

Posted by trimix125 on 11 July 2017 - 08:19 AM

Hi,
get two sets of Panasonic Eneloops per strobe and you will be fine.
I use the white ones, not so "strong" but more cycles....
And a charger per strobe ;-))
Normally you will get two dives out for sure, but the third can get to much...
Have fun,
Wolfgang




#383103 Looking for 60mm oly or the 45mm Panasonic

Posted by trimix125 on 13 April 2017 - 06:15 AM

Hi,
got mail ;-))
The water dots are gone. Sonax profiline glass polish is a great stuff for that. Just needs some time and time...
In my case they there not so massive, so no idea if it ever helps.

Here a pic how the lenses look like, very similar...
So i have filled the inner side of the zoom gear with some foam stuff, and now it runs the focus barrel.

Regards,
Wolfgang

#381938 Nikon Comparison D500 vs D7200

Posted by trimix125 on 03 March 2017 - 12:47 PM

Hi,
the difference between D7100 and D500 is easy to see.
Sharpness with the same lenses, if i mount a long tele lens on its tripod rest, and change the camera, you will find out which was it...
Low light pics, autofocus and Speed.

Only the built in flash is missing.

The question is what you want and need...
And can afford, as well. And the D500 was a big Investment for me too. But sold my two D300 bodies, and a housing and some other stuff for it...

But the D7200 is said to be much better in image quality than the D7100.

Had tried a D610 as well, but autofocus was to slow in low light.

Regards,
Wolfgang

PS: Jack was quicker ;-))




#381086 Problem with Aquatica 4" minidome & Nauticam NA-D500

Posted by trimix125 on 30 January 2017 - 03:22 PM

Hi Anders,
think your Problem is the port Adapter, because it give you more lenght.
I have a Zen 4" for my Hugy housing, and there is one for the Tokina 10 - 17mm and another one for the Nikon 10.5mm.
With this small domes, there is nearly no tolerance for sharpness.

If you wanna use it with the TC, it might work, depending on the lenght the port Adapter is adding.

Have the same Problem with Hugy housing using Nauticam macro port and Athena dome port.

If i have some time, i plan to start a list with housing brands and measurements of bayonett edge to housing edge, to make it easier for People using different housings and ports.

Regards,
Wolfgang

#373463 Why I don't cave dive (+link to BBC article)

Posted by trimix125 on 10 May 2016 - 07:59 AM

Hi,
cavediving,
when safe and proper done,
is a wonderful thing.
A little harder to take pics because the caves "eat" the light, but i have enoyed it very much.

Like errbrr wrote, that was more over than on the edge....

A german cave diver i know once said, the most dangerous is to get there and back.
He had two car accidents while traveling for caves....

Like any other think in diving, you should know what you are doing, and allways follow your instinct.
Better call a dive and lose a weekend, than do it against your feelings and lose your live.

Regards,
Wolfgang




#371378 Taking a Poll.. How many of you Check your Rig vs. Carry On?

Posted by trimix125 on 10 March 2016 - 10:50 AM

Hi,
i like to take the minimum i need with me.
Means camera, lenses, housing & ports,
one strobe with arm and chargers...
Second strobe and arm and back up batteries check in.
But, i use a m3/4 setup....

With my dslr, i was allways putting housing and ports in the check in luggage....

Two years ago we met a couple in the philippines, and his luggage was not in the aircraft, came 3 days later...
His housing was in......

If you wanna go with a liveaboard, that means no pics....
So depends on your setup and destination....

Regards,
Wolfgang
