Time to upgrade... And now?

03 January 2017 - 06:26 AM


As you all know, my mistress (underwater photography) is highly expensive and is always demanding more!

Now it is crying for a new a computer for processing the photos….

At this moment I use the Lightroom on a Mac Mini (quite old, 2009 I think!), and I am considering to go mobile.

First of all, is it possible to transfer the Lighroom catalogue from IOS version to PC version?

What do you recommend:
- MacBook Pro 13.3, i5 dual core 2.0GHz, 8GB memory, 256GB ssd
- Microsoft Surface Pro 4, i5, 8GB memory, 256GB ssd
- Any other suggestion?

Do you own an Aquatica Housing for Canon 7D mk II? Or did you get the chance to use one?

What are your thoughts about it? What do you like it? What do you do not like so much?

Anyone willing to share a review of it?

Canon 7D mkII - How does it performs underwater?

10 January 2016 - 05:37 PM

Hi Folks


I own a Canon 7D mkII, that I am willing to take it Underwater, but the investment is big (even needing only the housing…) so I need to think it properly.


I did not found so many reviews of this camera underwater...


Can you, the ones that have that camera and use it underwater or had experience with it underwater, help me with that?


What did you like most? What you do not like?


What are the settings, that work best for macro? And for fishes? And for WA? …


How do you use the focus? On the shutter? On the back button?


What kind of focus do you usually use? Manual focus? One Shot, AI Focus, AI Servo focus? Do you use the iTR focusing function on?


And a zillion more questions about the camera...
