Mirrorless video. Manual WB or postproduction

15 June 2015 - 10:55 AM



Coming from the photography side... I just checking video footage underwater with my camera.

I'm not sure how can manage the WB with WA lenses. And... using Premiere I'm not getting good results with postproduction.


Any advice?


Thanks in advance



IKELITE li-ion charging issues

25 May 2015 - 10:48 PM

Hello guys,


I'm a happy Ikelite user from 10 years ago. Housings, ports, and strobes.

My last change, one year ago, was moving to the Li-Ion batteries and chargers. Very happy, less weight, less space and more performance.


Well... my problem is that, suddenly, I can't charge two of my three batteries. Just the charger stay flashing all the time. Never stop and don't charge. I've two Li-Ion chargers and therr batteries and tryed a lot of combinations...


I found this:


The center contact of the receptacle into which you plug the charger has a split pin that can get squeezed together preventing good electrical continuity. Take something like a small screwdriver and spread the center pin slightly so it provides a snug fit with the plug. The socket is diode protected to only allow electricity "in" so you do not need to worry about a short circuit if you touch the side of the socket.




But don't solve my problem.


I found an article about Li-Ion explanng that this batteries can protect the circuit and "sleep" until a smart charger wake up again the battery.




I googled a lot and can't find the solution. I know, I've the Ikelite support but I'm almost sure is not a manufacturer problem, something strange with the charging process.


any advice??


Thanks in advance.
