Thanks Tom!

 

I mainly use a combination of f/11 or f/16, ISO 800 or ISO 1600, 1/125s or 1/60s. I never go beyond ISO1600 and really try not to go below 1/60s to avoid motion blur (even with the 15mm fisheye). With the very high DR of the D800 it is often possible to slightly underexpose the image and correct this in PP.

But since I'm always near the surface there is often enough light for a correctly exposed image at f/16, ISO800, 1/125s. When it's not sunny outside I avoid f/16 and mainly use f/11.

In Topic: Nikon AW-1?

15 September 2014 - 09:39 AM

I've used to Nikon 1 AW1 with the 11-27.5mm zoom on my recent trip to Palau (in addition to my Nikon D800 in a Seacam housing). As long as you have enough light to stay at base ISO 160 the image quality is very good (not far from a DSLR). At higher ISO the difference to the D800 is huge. The only problem I had with the AW1 was that both the lens and the rear display were sometimes fogged, probably due to the very high humidity in Palau (I was camping on one of the islands for two week without any air-condition or any chance to not expose the camera to the high humidity). I had no problems with the seals but never went deeper than 5m (I used the camera only for snorkeling and free diving). At the moment I'm processing my images. When I'm finished I will post the result here on Wetpixel.
