  1. Thank you so much for all the tips. Especially the recommended light filter and camera settings. Did you find that the cyan filters were easy to work with in post-processing vs the white light on those Keldans? If you’ve got some sample videos on YouTube, I’d love to take a look to see what you’ve shot. Best, Matt
  2. A brand new one is out of my budget for now, so I’m hoping to get a used one if possible
  3. Looking for a Sea & Sea 82mm Correction Filter for my Sony 16-35 f/2.8 Let me know if you’ve got one and may sell it. Thanks!
  4. Maybe it’s just me, but I find videos with the fisheye look so distracting vs rectilinear. Especially if you’re around any swimthroughs, caves, straight (ish) lines, and have a diver or large subject swim in/out of frame. The distortion that occurs at the edge grabs my eye and I think it looks distracting vs smooth. Is the WWL not going to be the same story? I’ve got the 16-35GM already, which is incredible glass… so I’d like to at least take advantage of that since I’m going to be bringing it everywhere anyways.
  5. @ChrisRoss Any chance you know of a good video or some photography shot with the 16-35mm f/2.8 and a larger dome? I did some googling and perusing here and was unable to find what I was looking for. Thanks!
  6. That link on sharpness is extremely helpful. The corner sharpness falloff is very drastic. Do you feel 5800 on two lights is still not adequate? I would totally agree if it was just one light, but I haven’t tried it yet. I’ll be working on a lot of above water video work beforehand for practice. The white balance but doesn’t phase me, but there will definitely but some learning involved. If there was a 230mm dome, would the corner sharpness be similar to the WWL or even close(ish) to the WACP? I realize that’s the sharpest solution out there. I think that I could manage the travel on the dome with my scuba gear, but I’d really like to get the biggest bang for my buck with the great 16-35 f/2.8 GM lens that I’ve got since I’ve got to bring it for astro and out of the water photography anyways.
  7. I’ve already got the 16-35 and will eventually get a larger dome, but baby steps. As much as I’d consider the WWL option, I already have a 90mm as well. I don’t think it would be worth the travel struggle to do all of that and incur even more cost.
  8. Hi All, As the title says, I’m going from landscape photography on the A7R IV to the A1 with the intent of taking more video in my life. Especially underwater. Did anyone make the jump from stills to videos either on land or underwater and have some nuggets of wisdom to share from their journey? I’ve watched plenty of YouTube videos on it, but most are from an on land perspective and I’d love to hear more from both sides. For UW hardware I’ll be shooting with 2x YS-D2 strobes, 2x Big Blue VL5800p video lights, an Isotta housing, and a Sony A1 paired with a 16-35 f/2.8 and 90mm macro option. I’ve got the 6” dome currently and am waiting for the right time to go with a larger dome. I’ve been told for video this is less problematic as soft corners aren’t as apparent. All feedback is welcomed feedback! Thanks! Matt
  9. Hey All, Looking for a YS-D3 Mk II Lightning Strobe. Let me know if you've got one available for sale. Thank you!
  10. Looking for Isotta 8" Acrylic or 9" Crystal Dome Port for B120. Thank you! Matt
  11. Hi All, As the title says, I'm looking for images shot with a Sony 16-35 f/4 or f/2.8 with a 6" dome. Videos would also be greatly appreciated. I've seen countless threads about the need for a wider dome, but for now it's just not in the budget and I want to see how much softness there is going to be in the corners. I am looking at a majority of video to photo, so the softness may not be as detrimental. Camera is the A1. Thanks, Matt
  12. Ah. I thought that given it moves the converter further from the lens that it would defeat the full purpose of the correction lens. If that is not the case, then great!
