  1. Hi: Like many people I'm a big fan of this forum. I have learned a lot and saved a lot of time and money in the process (jajaja), So a big Thank You to everyone. I have followed the Fiber Optic snoot Topic with a lot of interest and decided to make My own snoot. As I live on both sides of the border with San Diego I have Access to Machine Shops that are less expensive. In the process, I had to buy a big piece of Delrin, so I have enough to make 18 more pieces. If anyone is interested I can have it made for $50.00 Dlls including the Delrin plastic plus shipping. I only made it for the Inon 240 (same size as 220), I also have the Sea & Sea 250 but it doesn't seem practical to use for this purpose. It has only has one 3/4" US tread connected with a 3/4" NPT Connector ($5.45) , then I split it with a Loc-Line Y Reducer 3/4" to 1/2" ($8.75) and use 2 Loc-Line Hose Segments Pack for 1/2" system ($5.99 x 2). I bought it at www.modularhose.com I bought around $40.00 worth of 1mm plastic fiber from http://www.fiberopticproducts.com/store/pr...roducts_id=1091 It's the best price I could find. My thinking for doing it like this is that sometimes I'm going to use a single 3/4 segment to better focus the flash because getting dark backgrounds is harder with the D300 sync speeds,coming from the D70. So if anyone is interested let me know and I will start making them. Of course I can only do 18 for now. Saludos Antonio Frias antocab@hotmail.com
  2. Wow, great colors. I guess you have to live around SoCal waters for a while to really appreciate how rare days like these are.
  3. Greg: I to had the 5060 for about a year and was very happy with the camera. I used it with the add on macro lens. The Olympus housing on the other had is another matter, mine flooded after 8 months thru the sync port on top of the housing, so I decided to jump to a DSRL . I really enjoyed this camera and worked around its limitations. Here are a few samples http://photos.imageevent.com/ensenadadiver...ed-Seahorse.jpg http://photos.imageevent.com/ensenadadiver...Sharkqus-10.jpg http://photos.imageevent.com/ensenadadiver...-Sharkqus-9.jpg http://photos.imageevent.com/ensenadadiver.../Reef-Squid.jpg Saludos Antonio Frias
  4. A little late but here is mine. It was taken in Ensenada, BC.
  5. Thx for the advice Alex, I'm still not sure, I have photos taken at 1/500 and they look sharp, and the still exhibit the problem. I will keep shooting and see what happens. James Thx for the nice comment. I really love the Coronado Islands, I go there very often. It's only a 40min boat dive from where I live. The conditions here have been very bad, I hope It gets better soon so I can have something to show. Sincerely Antonio Frias
  6. Here is the exif information 1st one- Raw - 105mm - Manual mode - 1/200 F/11 - EV 0 - ISO 200 - WB auto - AFS - Tone Normal - Hue 0 - Saturation Normal - Sharpening Low - Noise Reduction OFF 2nd one- Raw - 60mm - Manual mode - 1/60 F/13 - EV 0 - ISO 200 - WB auto - AFS - Tone Normal - Hue 0 - Saturation Normal - Sharpening Low - Noise Reduction OFF I try not to go beyond F/22 if I can help it. I have read several post regarding image degradation beyond F/22. It also appears on several fish portraits, on the edge of the fins, I was wondering if this was normal or not. Thank You for your help. Antonio Frias
  7. I have a problem with some images from my last trip with the D70. The pictures where taken in NEF format and converted to jpeg in Photoshop 7.0. They exhibit the same problem in the raw image in Nikon Capture. They where taken with the 60mm and 105mm lens. I been lurking on this forum for a while and have great respect for the knowledge of the members of this forum. To get to the point. After doing some reading, I guess this is chromatic aberration. Is this normal due to the limits of the D70 sensor? or do I have to get my camera fixed?, does anyone have similar problems? I'm asking this here because this are very common subjects underwater and its very noticeable on prints from 8x10 and Up. 100% crop 100% crop Thank You Antonio Frias
