Which Subsee diopter to start with +5 or +10

23 February 2013 - 08:32 AM

I have never done any super macro underwater. I was wondering which Subsee to start with? A +5 or +10? I am leaning towards a +5.


I would be using this with a Canon 100L and full frame.



Ikelite Manta Strobe

15 January 2013 - 08:06 AM

I saw some DEMA reports that Ikelite is introducing a new small strobe. It seems to compete in the Z240 area. Not much info. just 4 AA cells and Optical sync and some sort of STLL. Has anybody heard anything else or seen some specs?

New strobes? What is coming in strobes?

30 July 2012 - 05:56 AM

I am considering new strobes.

The choice seems to be. YS-D1, 240z, or Ike 161.

I am shooting with Ike 160,s. I would like a smaller strobe for travel.

The YS-D1 was just released. The 240z Gen4 has been out for a while as has the Ike 161. I read a rumor Ike is due out with a new strobe. Does anyone know if that is true?

Anything new coming from Inon?

I do not want to buy when somethiing new is on the way.

D800e will Moire be a problem underwater?

19 March 2012 - 05:34 AM

Here is a link to an article on the choice between a D800 or D800e.


My question is this. While most most landscape photographers do not seem concerned about moire on the new D800e. What about us UW photographers? We shoot in a natural environment but many times there are repeating patterns. Fish scales, corals ect... Will we see more of a problem?

There are many pros shooting topside with cameras that have no AA filter, almost none of these cameras make it UW. There are very few housed medium format cameras. It is very different to shoot landscapes topside with no repeating patterns or fashion topside with a lot of man made repeating patterns.

I just wanted to know what more experienced people think? Do we have enough repeating patterns to have a moire problem?

I am a Canon shooter but the D800e is very interesting. I will wait to see all the tests or samples.
