In Topic: thoughts on mini domes

14 May 2016 - 12:13 AM

If you plan to use your 8-15mm at the 8mm end, you will need to remove the shade. The shade will vignette when you are shooting full circular fisheye.


Aquatica do offer a version of their port (by order) that has the shade machined off. 


My understanding is that the Zen DP-100-ACR does not need an extension. I have used it with another housing brand and it did not.


Unless someone comes along who has personal experience of using this lens/port combination, I would follow the advice of your local dealer. 



In Topic: RAW Show Reel From Palau

Hi Richard,


Some very nice footage in there and the ability to color correct the RAW files really shows. You have amazing blues....


I thought some of the edits were a little "jumpy". I know show reels are all about squeezing in as much as possible though...



In Topic: Gear Update Confusing! Any input appreciated

Hi Sue!


I guess what you need to consider is the pros vs cons of upgrading.


An SLR based system will make it easier to get better images, but it is a more complex and complicated animal. Understanding settings will still be a prerequisite to getting the images you want. 


If you feel that you have exhausted the creative potential (for you) with the G12, it is definitely time to move on....


My feeling is that the G16 will probably produce marginally better images, but will not be a huge leap over the G12.


My only other thought is that if you are finding that camera settings and figuring them out is a challenge, perhaps try and get on a  workshop or hire a pro photographer for a few sessions. This will also help you decide whether the upgrade path is one that you wish to embark on.


All the best
