In Topic: Thinking about acquiring a viewfinder

08 December 2014 - 12:20 PM

I have both straight and 45 INONS and I now only use 45 for everything, although both are a huge improvement over standard housing viewfinders.

If you dive regularly I would choose 45, if you don´t (say only two or three weeks a year) maybe the 180 will be more straight forward (no pun intended :P ) to use.

I, on the other hand, find the 45 great for splits taking off the protective rubber (5 seconds on the INON).

Japanese style? :o 

Shallow depth of field is just a technique used to highlight a certain part of an image (and sometimes an unavoidable result of great magnification in macro images...). Black or blurred backgrounds have nothing to do with where you take the pictures... just open your lenses, get close (powerful close up lenses will help getting SDF) and enjoy.

In Topic: acrylic vs. glass domes

I have never used a glass dome and I think I have many sunburst images without any problems... I recently acquired a SAGA 4" coated glass mini dome but I have not tried it yet... we´ll see...

The question is: Is anyone able to tell whether a photo has been taken with a plastic or a glass dome? The answer is no... It is much more important, specially with FF and rectilinear WA lenses, to use the right extension rings/configuration.
