In Topic: Help with zoom gear

16 August 2017 - 10:34 AM

If you know anyone with a 3D printer, you can have a gear printed. I'm working on having a Panasonic 7-14mm gear printed now. If it goes well, I'll try and post up the file.

The lanyard I use to connect my camera to my BCD is neon green paracord. You don't see many people with neon green lanyards.

Manual mode for me. Pick the iso and aperture you want, and then vary shutter speed to change how bright the background is.

What mode do you have your strobes in? What flash mode is your camera in? If your strobes are in manual, you need to have the camera flash in manual (I put mine at 1/64 power). If the strobes are in TTL, you need to have the camera set to "fill in" flash. I had the same problem when I started out. 

 

With strobes, changing the shutter speed won't affect how bright the strobe lights are. You need to change your ISO or your Aperture (f-stop). 

 

Just so long as you only fire a couple shots above water and give them a minute or two to cool down, you can shoot occasionally above water. Better to figure it out before getting in the water. 


In Topic: Help with zen 170 dome port II

29 May 2017 - 03:18 PM

So, objectively, which is the better port combo for the Panasonic 7-14mm?  I was planning on buying a Zen 170mm version I since I could also use the 8mm 1.8 in the same dome sans-extension. I have a few months to make a decision but I'll need it in September.
