Apologies for the delay.


I can change your name, although I must admit to being disappointed that the account will only be to "buy and sell gear."

In Topic: Best way to connect two Seacam flashes to Nauticam with one Bulkhead?

Ah...that may be the case. I knew that they could be optically triggered, but don't know about TTL.

Sascha...Will the 60D not trigger optically?


You could either run it from the camera's flash or via an optical electrical converter (which will improve your frame rate).

In Topic: D500 focus options underwater?

20 July 2017 - 07:36 AM

To some extent I think the problem here is that many of those coming from older Nikon AF systems tend to stick with what worked on their older cameras! We see the same issue sometimes with lens choices too. There are plenty of very well known underwater shooters who do not use ISO as a means of controlling exposure as they learnt to shoot with film  :)


AF choices are a personal matter, and you need to find what works for you, but equally, if you simply copy your settings and workflow from a previous camera, you are missing out on any technical advances that your new model may offer. I remember shooting manual focus and manual exposure film cameras underwater, but am heartily glad for AF, adjustable ISO and LCD reviews now!


The D500's AF system is a huge improvement over any Nikon AF system to date. Unless you have used it, it is perhaps difficult to asses the advantages of its AF-C performance.


I would suggest that if you don't at least try AF-C with 3D on the D500, you are limiting the AF system to what worked with an older (lower performance AF) camera.


The D800's AF was good, the D810's better and the D500 (and D5)'s is amazing :)
