#344900 Nikon 105vr manual vs auto focus

Posted by divengolf on 23 March 2014 - 04:08 PM

Eagle Ray's point of Back Button Focus is spot on for macro and super-macro shooting. I've shot D70, D90 and currently D7000. On the back of your D200, there is an AF-ON button. Use this to achieve the back button focus and eliminate the focus lock with the shutter. I use it for all my shots, except that on my D7000, I have to program the AF-L button to AF-ON. You don't have to do that. AF is so good these days that I don't know any pros who are using manual focus UW. But I'm sure there are a few.




#339389 Installing Vivid Housings Leak Sentinel V3 on Ikelite Nikon D300s housing?

I'd email Miso directly at Vivid Housings. He is most responsive on installation problems.

#334237 Zen minidome for Aquatica - advice required

Posted by divengolf on 12 July 2013 - 09:30 AM

Simon,

 

I used numerous ports with the Aquatica housing for the Nikon D70. This was before they had port locking on their housing. Probably did 2-300 dives with it and never had any port or extension ring loosen at all. But I had a mark on the exact top of the port and extension rings, so if anything moved, I'd, hopefully notice it. But it never happened.
