In Topic: Color Negative Film?

07 August 2014 - 11:28 AM

I don't think you have much choice at ISO 100.  I've been using Fujichrome Velvia 100 but you're right, it costs twice as much and then you have to send it out for processing.  I've been spending about $23 a roll to process and do quality scans.  If you want standard scans I think it saves you $5.  I send my slide film to The Darkroom in Southern Ca. and have them back in about a week with scans posted online in about 3 days.

Here is another alternative if those don't work out.  I got one of these for my Sea & Sea flat port and it works decently.  I did have to remove the rubber boot that Sea & Sea puts over the front corner in order to use it.  I don't think Ikelite has a boot.

In Topic: corrosion on Solo lights

Second the vinegar and swab.  Contact cleaner also works.  I spray it on a swab first.  After you clean it, wipe it with dielectric grease and reapply regularly.  It will charge fine through the dielectric grease and won't recorrode.  For some reason, only one terminal corrodes on mine.

In Topic: New lens: macro or fisheye?

Wide angle is more challenging, but the 10-17 focuses so close that with a small dome you can shoot WA macro.  Not really macro because even on top of the subject, it looks small (and I mean touching the dome), but a close-up of a small to medium subject with a wide background.  The challenge is strobe placement and lighting both the subject and the background.

In this shot, the squids were probably an inch from the port.




In this crop, they may have been touching it.
