In Topic: Ikelite housing for Canon 80D

02 June 2016 - 11:50 AM

Im not sure I like it. It is missing out on quite a few controls that are available in my 70d housing. (all the top buttons are missing). I also dont see the normal TTL / Manual selector buttons for the strobes.


In Topic: magic filters?

what lens are you using ? I still have sets of green and blue water magic filters for sigma 15mm (i changed to tokina 10-17mm).

You are however right, that shooting RAW does negate the usefulness of the filters, I think even Alex and Peter have agreed with this.

 

probably not. see the link http://www.magic-filters.com/need.htmland the 3 wreck photos.

 

the idea is that the filters helps to give a more natural distribution over the RGB channels. It removes the (excess of) blue, so the camera will record more equal levels of the colours (closer to the natural white balance).


In Topic: which brand(s) for reliable clamps

24 May 2016 - 11:38 PM

I just have to re iterate my experience with idas, i wouldnt recommend:

for me, they were even not that cheap.

 

im still using them (I cleaned them thoroughly with vinegar and a ultrasonic bath and changed the orings and then they work ok-ish), because I have to sell the thought of a spending spree on new clamps and arms to my wife :-)

 

i had a play with a friends nauticam arms and they are definitely in a different league then the idas ones. Very smooth movement. But they were quite new....
