#327607 Nikon 60mm vs Nikon 105mmvr

Posted by E_viking on 10 March 2013 - 08:00 AM

It depends on format as well.


My vote would be

DX => 60mm

FX=> 105mm

Just buy a bit more than you think you need..

Then simply just try it out!

#327572 New Housing "Airlock" Vacuum from Backscatter

It is for sure great that there are no Patents on this system...

In my humble opinion all Housing should come with a system simlilar to this!

It reduces the risk of floods and I am pretty sure that all of us that once had a flood would agree :notworthy:


I just find it a pity that it takes until midlle of May, or so, until the electrocic version is out!

@DiverPam:  The ASUS Zenbook 11.6" is a great little Laptop ( Ultrabook).  Congrats!


I am very happy with mine so far!



#327011 Am I onto something?

If you like UW Photography? Then go for it.

Can you imagine diving without a Camera? Then think about it.


... and then go for it anyway :evilgrin2:


It is your decision, your money and your passion. Basically all of us here on Wetpixel have been in your situation.

We decided to go for it. So, as Steve writes you are asking the wrong bunch.

All of us would probably say that it keeps costing us a lot of money, but giving us a lot of joy.

#323349 D800 write to card delay

Posted by E_viking on 27 December 2012 - 04:11 AM

This seems like a "classic" interrupt Issue/problem. It generally seems to happen intermittent out of the blue!
The Processor is busy with someother task and suddenly a higher order interrupt comes, which create problems.
Generally, the workaround is a time out or a a reboot.
I could imagine that there is a collision of the interupts of the 2 cards. Hence, by only using 1 card the problem is reduced or gone.

These type of problems are a pain to debug. Since, the main problem is to find out under exact which circumstance the problem occurs.

I believe that it depends on what you want it to do!

For me it is primarily to download pics when away, rendering them into Lighroom. Then having a quick look and throwing away the obvious bad ones.
I assume that this is the typical dive vacation tasks :-) The rest is beer time/ Hammock time/Social time etc :-)

I believe that 4GB RAM is the minimum for these tasks. For more serious photo editing you will need more.
Rendering & moving over to PC is mainly a Processor task ( as long as the SD/CF card is fast enough).

Then it is just a question of processor power how fast the process will be ( clock speed and amount of cores).

It could be worth looking at the Atom/Windows8 Tablets that will come out next year. If you want a lightweight travelling alternative.
Will they have USB3 and can they render pics in Lightroom in a reasonable time ( rendering is mainly Processor power)?
I assume that Photo Editing is too much to ask!
