In Topic: thoughts on mini domes

27 July 2014 - 02:23 PM

I like Jim's choice John.  Especially if your shooting a Zen glass dome with coatings that seem to do a better job controlling flare in shallow water situations like you'll be in with the whales.  The other side of the coin is that the large dome provides for a nice negative bouyancy so you don't have to worry about dropping your rig into the depths.  When I was in the water with the Sperm whales I ended up using both.

 

Be sure and let us know how it goes in Tonga,  That trip is high on my list.

 

Cheers,

I used to use Southern Nikonos in Texas.  They still show up on the web but I don't have any recent experience.  I remeber them being extremely knowledgable and fast but that has been a while.

In Topic: Do you use handles for your housing?

All old Nikonos users are welcome here. :drink:   and yes for primarily wide angle, to get the strobes spread out, two handles helps a lot.  The bigger the camera gets the more sense it makes.

 

Good luck,

Steve
