In Topic: Custom white balance and noise

13 January 2017 - 12:08 AM

I think yes based on my use of Panasonic LX100.

This camera has good manual white balance but shows quite a lot of noise even at iso 400/800 when manual white balanced at depth. This camera is acceptable on land use even at iso 3200.

Went there twice once in February and once in January. Saw lots of silvertips and dolphins in January, lots of hammerheads, manta rays and whale sharks in February.

Didn't get to Roca Partida in my February trip due to wind, a big disappointment for me as it is the prime area for humpback whales and calves. I heard that the sea can be very choppy in May, in return it is the time for sharks.

I informed the liveaboard that I want to shoot with a drone in advance, had to inform the captain everytime I shot with it. I was not allowed to shoot in Socorro Island due to the military base there.

I went to Cancun, Mexico city and Los Cabos last year with my DJI Phantom 2, no problem.

Hi, I am interested at your 18458 extension ring to use 17-40 F4 with  8" dome port. Do you have any idea on its difference with 48458 extension ring which is listed on port chart of Aquatica? Thanks.

Thanks. I guess the visibility was around 10m and the depth was 6-8m.

I found the MWB of LX100 much better than other Panasonic cameras such as GH2, but its low light performance is not really good, iso 800 is barely usable, particularly after MWB underwater.
