The whole set is special Tim, congrats partner. Loving the balanced light you were able to acheive on the wide angle images.

In Topic: Canon 5d MKII or Canon 6D for best low light performance

Hi partner,

Snapsort would say the 6D wins the low light performance contest.  I think that the 6D would also surprise most people and win the auto focus speed contest especially in low light.. It's lighter too by quite a bit.  


snapsort comparison


From a control standpoint everything you can do on the 5D MKII you can do with the 6D with some judicious use of the reprogrammable controls.


Good luck on your decision,

In Topic: F'n Stop - big rookie mistake

27 September 2014 - 01:36 PM

I should correct you and note that this is not a "rookie" mistake.  I've been shooting underwater since 1968 and still make similar mistakes all the time.  And Stoo please note that I would never get to 120' without noticing I left the lens cap on.  When it happened to me I noticed it at about 60'.  Please note my avatar photo, yes that's a lens cap I'm holding.  It's very hard to remove the cap unnoticed on a little panga filled with your U/W photographer friends.  Thanks to Allison Vitsky Sallmon for capturing my pain for posterity.   I'd like to say Tim that I've never jumped off the back of the boat with no fins, but I can't.  


Clearly the answer Mr. Tales is to shoot manual, that way you must remember to actually control the camera.  Or said differently you can then screw up the shutter speed and ISO too.


Have fun,
