Gel filters and the Sigma 15

08 June 2013 - 05:46 AM

I've had such great success recently with the D800 in natural light (eg hammerhead shots) I thought I'd fit a filter to the back of the Sigma15 and do more. Has anyone noticed any deterioration of sharpness doing this? I know a lot of you use Magic filters. I still have a large stock of Wratten filters from my professional photography days but of course I used them with big cameras not these little DSLRs.

Tiger Nightmare?

Well, many of you are familiar with the characters from Tiger Beach and some will have stories of cameras being grabbed and swum off with. My story is slightly different in that my tank was grabbed by a tiger and swum off with, with me attached! Not only that, but it happened twice on the same dive.


What do you do when a big tiger shark grabs you and swims off with you? You hope you're not bleeding too badly!!!
