That's terrible... But what the hell was he doing on a motorized skateboard?!

#342721 Lembeh from a different perspective

Here's one I have thrown together in the last week.  It's been a long time since I edited so relearning the software.  Friendly pointers and criticism welcomed.


#340517 Nauticam Super Macro Converter

Posted by Scuba_SI on 11 December 2013 - 04:00 AM

I also did a few tests:


In this first one the video camera is a similar crop to a 7D.


The images in this comparison were on a 5Dmk3 with a 1.4 so you can get a similar crop on your 7D:  http://nad-lembeh.co...-vs-mpe-65.html


Tomorrow i'm hoping to get the TC on the crop for crazy macro :)

Competition entries that prohibit cropping.  Had that 'crop up' in our shootout last year.

#323618 Little Green Shrimp in Lembeh, supermacro video.

Posted by Scuba_SI on 01 January 2013 - 08:27 PM

Here is a short video i shot yesterday of the 'Little Green Shrimp.' It was shot here in Lembeh using both the Canon 7D and the Canon 5Dmk3 cameras in Nauticam housings.

On the 5Dmk3 i used the Canon MP-E 65mm lens set at 4x, and on the 7D i used the 100mmL with stacked 5x and 10x Subsee Dioptres.

It was, for me, and interesting comparison between the two methods. the MP-E 65 get's built up as an amazing lens but very few take it underwater, and after shooting this i think for the average holiday makers its not worth taking underwater - might as well stack 2 diopters and have more flexibility for almost the same image quality.

Of course this isnt apples to apples as i would need two of the same camera for that, I will try the MP-E on the 7D soon!


#318704 Any feedback from those using NA-5DMarkIII ?

I just started using a 5Dmk3 today, and as im waiting for parts for my flashes im shooing at high ISO - it is very nice. I need to get the 'L' 100mm to take full advantage of the focus speed.

Back to hardwired flashes is a bit dull but i think using ttl for the past few years made my photography go backwards. More keepers but less stunners when it comes to ttl, imho.

Edit: I'm a numpty, didnt realise this thread was for the housing type and not just the camera! I'm sure the housing is going to be a great one from Nauticam!
