  3. Had read a lot about flooding and issues on the Fisheye Ultra Compact Focus Light, but I got one anyway. http://reefphoto.com/index.php?main_page=p...roducts_id=1470 I had picked one up, stopped working after about 6 dives. No evidence of flooding or contact issues. So I will add my experience for this light. After that brand new light stopped working, ended up using a small Princeton Tec light which worked just fine.
  4. damn the mantas threw this off topic... what about settings for those 2 lens (60 mm and 10-17mm) for general night dive shooting. What would you recommend (settings you would setup before you hit the water for any night dive). then can adjust based on situation. This was the type of information I was looking for some suggestions on. Mode (manual, shutter/aperture priority, ...), shutter speed, aperture, strobe power (full, 1/2, diffuser or not) so far for the 60mm, I see f/22 & 100 ISO. Thanks for the feedback!
  5. For night dive photography, what settings would you recommend as you hit the water. I have moved on from a Nikonos and frame set for Macro where it was f/22, 1/60 and TTL and thats it. Now with the D80, ikelite and SB105, I am looking for some camera/flash setting recommendations (mode, shutter, flash power, etc) to start me off. What recommendations would you have for the 60mm ? What about the 10-17mm ? (mantas in Kona coming up) Thanks for ANY advice, John
  6. Thanks for the reply I plan on getting a wide angle lens soon, so I would still like to know if there is a way to get the exposure meter in the "control panel", if anyone knows.
  7. I have a D80, Ikelite housing, Nikkor f2.8/D 60mm and SB105. Had it in the pool and taking it on a dive trip this weekend. Have a question on the camera settings. I would like to see the exposure meter in the control panel if possible. In the manual it says: "If a CPU lens is attached and a shutter speed other than bulb is selected, the electronic analog exposure displays in the control panel and viewfinder show whether the photograph would be under or over exposed at the current settings." The control panel is the digital display on the top of the camera but I do not see the exposure meter showing up in the control panel, it only shows up in the viewfinder (eye piece). Is there a way to make the exposure meter show up on the control panel ? It would be MUCH easier to read there than trying to read the tiny one inside the viewfinder. And I will take any advice for my setup on some general exposure settings to set as a baseline and I can adjust based on conditions from there. shutter, f stop, flash pwr (full, 1/4, 1/16) 1) < 1 ft 2) 2-3 ft 3) > 3ft Thanks for any help !
  8. Well actually I might have to follow up on that one. The used (cheap) D70s I had an eye on at B&H is gone now, so the D80, although a lot more expensive, maybe is a better option than getting something that is becoming more scarce. On the stobe arm options, has anyone had experience with the Ikelite Nikonos arm adapter that connects to the Ikelite housing tray ? Ikelite 0301.85 May be a good starter solution to limit the costs that are adding up I am curious if anyone has any experience with it and how it worked out. Thanks,
  9. Getting a DSLR and looking for some feedback. Background Have been using a Nikonos V, 20mm, 35/ext tubes (1:1, 1:2, 1:3, 2:1) for over 10 years and currently have a SB105. Above water is not a priority for lens selection. Not a looking for a professional solution, for example, I have not experimented outside TTL on the flash with the Nikonos. Hoping with the ease and instant feedback of Digital (instead of film) I will be able to experiment a lot more with settings and it sounds like manual setting on the strobe is the way to go (learn) anyway. New system plan D70s Ikelite housing 6807.1 60mm f/2.8D AF Micro Nikkor AF Ikelite 5502.41 Flat port Tokina 10-17 f/3.5-4.5 AT-X 107 DX AF Ikelite 5503 6" dome Ikelite 4116.31 sync cord My thoughts on future expansion of the system Macro lens like a 105mm 8" dome Second strobe Requesting Feedback (take feedback on anything but 3 specific questions) 1) Lens choice - would like WA and some close up capability (the whole range of course ) From all the reading on this and other forums I have done, I know better than to ask "what lens should I get", so I will ask for feedback on these combinations. Note, I would have 1 SB 105 strobe (in case that should effect my lens choice) My current choice priority. Choice 1) Tokina 10-17 w/ 6" dome and 60 w/ flat port Choice 2) Sigma 17-70 and 60 Choice 3) Tokina 12-24 and 60 2) Strobe Arms - I have all the components listed above I think I would need except for strobe arms. What are recommendations for strobe arms I should get for the SB 105 ? (what length, style, etc). 3) Accessories - Any other accessories I am forgetting to get started (besides CF card, extra battery/o-rings) -Zoom adapter ? (is one needed for any of these lens options) -Diopters ? (not familiar with these but see them talked about a lot. Is there any case with my proposal that require one/some ?) Thanks for any feedback, John ---------- Comment: I have found it very valuable to see people posting a range of shots with a lens (the close and far end of a zoom's potential for example). It really helps to understand the dynamic range a lens can provide but I typically don't see the dome/port size used. I think providing the dome/size used would be helpful when people provide these samples. Just a couple I have found very useful: Example: Sigma 17-70 sample 1 sample 2 Example: whole range of lens sample pics for D70 (all the 60mm pics here showed the exact same size image it seemed, hard to tell if there is much size range for this lens). This site did list port used sample 3
