  2. Thank you Troporobo!! Still much to learn, but sometimes things seem to go in the right way. Best Regards.

  4. I'll be posting the pictures I get with my actual system, Fujifilm X-T3 into Nauticam housing. Please, feel free to criticize the pics. Flabellina Affinis, Ifach Rock, Spain. Fujifilm X-T3 + Fujinon 80mm macro + Nauticam housing + 2x Backscatter MF1 @wetdreamsphoto
  5. NA-XT3 housing, with both, 40mm and 110mm ports. Usually vacuum 1-2 hour before diving, just until light turns green (12-13 pumps). Normally Mediterranean, so water themperature is 15-22° Celsius, air themperature 18-30° Celsius. There can be a big difference between air and water, last weekend 33° air vs 17° water. No issues or false alarms until now. Perhaps 2-3 pumps just before going on board is a good advice I am going to adopt from now on. Best Regards
  6. Hi Froop!! Did you process the pictures in LR or C1, or are they plain jpgs?? Are you using some film simulations?? Cheers!
  7. Ok, I just found your post about it on strobes and lights. Thank you anyway!!
  8. Did you adapt the Backscatter optical snoot to a Z330?? Please post some pictures of your DIY!! How are the results??
  9. Thank you very much Chris, your explanation is very clarifying. I will explore the UCL-67 too. I think this can be a good option for an "all in one" setup, and quite compact for travelling. By the way, do you have experience with the WWW-C?? I supose the image quality can't compare with a good wide angle or fisheye + a good glass dome, but I have read that some wet lenses equal, or even improve the iq.... Thank you very much, for me, as a begginer, it is a blessing to have the support of people with your knoledge.
  10. Hello, I am planning to use a 15-45 zoom on my fuji x-t3, probably paired with the WWL-C for wide angle. I was wondering the macro capabilities of the XC 15-45 if paired with a wet macro lens, i.e. the CMC-1. The minimum working distance of the lens is 5,1" at 15mm and 13,8" at 45mm, and the reproduction ratio is 1:4,2 So, what is suposed to get with a wet macro converter on a non macro lens??? Shorter working distance?? Bigger reproduction ratio?? Has someone any experiences in this topic?? Thank you!!
  11. The overall exposure is too high tnan is difficult to get black background when snooting. If I follow the 180° rule my shutter speed is 1/50, even at f16 this means too much exposure. I think a ND on my port would help with this. Anyway, I am not an expert on video, nor in photography, just trying to experiment... Any thoughts about this will be welcomed!!! (If I shoot with any film simulation, velvia, Astia, Eterna... , the iso starts at 160, but on fLog it drops to 640)
  12. The ND filters look an interesting area to experiment, for me. I want to shoot video this season, and the base iso when shooting flog in my X-T3 is 640, which is way too high for some creative macro shooting. Do you have any suggestions about good and cheap 67mm ND filters??
  13. Ok, then I misunderstood you!! It could be nice for video, too. By the way, are you planning to pair the 15-45 with any wet diopter, or just WWL??
  14. Hello froop!! I was talking about My Menu, not IQ menu. You can find it in USER SETTING >>> MY MENU SETTING. http://fujifilm-dsc.com/en/manual/x-t2/shortcuts/my_menu/index.html When you set it, you have a custom tab with your prefered menu options. And yes, I took those pics with the 80mm macro, it is my only underwater setup right now. Still trying to decide my wide setup. Best Regards!!
  15. I am glad to hear about your successfull dive!! Be carefull with that switch!! I allways check it after a dive having it in the wrong possition. Very frustrating not to be able to focus something closer to 0,5m!!! Due to my old (50) eyes I allways use the viewfinder. Moreover, i have set "Image display" in continous. This way I can check the result quite accuratelly while the strobe is recharging. Then half press the shutter and I am ready for the next shot. I dream of a 45° viewfinder!! I have this, and the rest of things I have to change when the camera goes to "dive" mode, in "My Menu". This way I never forget to change any important settings. You can use the EF-X8 in manual flash too. Here some pics taken with the Backscatter Mini Flash (manual only) Hope this helps!!
