  1. I'd suggest: 1. Bump your aperture to f8/10/11/13. 2. Zoom in a wee bit (16mm). 3. Drop your shutter speed to 1/200 or 1/160. I don't think this will affect the corners, but will allow you to shoot at lower ISO's, so less noise.
  2. I'm new to snoot lighting, and didn't realize the output power was reduced to that degree, but don't want to change the focus of this thread to 'Snooting 101'. Thanks again for sharing your experience with both products.
  3. Thanks for your feedback, Phil. You mentioned that you set "Inon to full power F/5.6 to F/9 at ISO 400 to 640". Are these roughly the aperture and ISO settings you're limited to with the Backscatter mini too?
  4. Hi Phil, Thanks for posting sample photos as well as your kit setup. Can you comment on how the SOFT compares to the Backscatter Mini + Optical Snoot (Particularly in the power of the light output)? Also, how did the buoyancy and trim feel with the SOFT mounted on your cross bar?
  5. Thanks, Chris. I'll try this at some point. I don't have convenient access to a pool, but I do have access to a concrete anchor block (90' deep) that is ~4'x6' wide that might work. I'll try an f-stop progression next time I'm at that site.
  6. Hi Adam, I'm assuming the lens is in the correct position. I have it wrapped in a Marelux housing with the 230mm dome and 60mm extension ring as specified in their port chart. Should I be checking anything else? One thought...i was finning in the same direction as the fish school when the picture was taken, so the reef may have some motion blur. Perhaps i should take another test shot while holding still?
