    2 x Ikelite DS-125s
  1. Hi there - is your monitor calibrated ? I like the pictures but I think they both need a little boost in terms of brightness and contrast ! Take care.
  2. I have an Ikelite D70 / D70s housing for sale (not yet advertised). It is the iTTL version (there are 2 versions of this housing one with iTTL and one without). It is in great condition - please PM me if interested ! Take care.
  3. The lens is in great condition, listed on eBay : http://cgi.ebay.ie/Sea-and-Sea-Underwater-...=item255dfa778d Possible interesting use for such a lens : http://wetpixel.com/i.php/full/official-re...a-nex5-housing/ :-)
  4. I have been using the Lyson CIS on my Epson Stylus Photo 2200 / 2100 for many years without problems. It is available for the R1800 http://www.lyson.com/community/news.asp?id=3 Now if you change ink system you will need to match your printer profile with the ink + paper combination that you choose to use. There are some of these available on the Lyson web site, but if you wish to use other combinations you may have to create them yourself (or pay to get them done). The other thing to be generally aware of is that there are basically two types of ink - dye based and pigment based. If you are looking for longevity in your prints you should use pigment based inks (I'm sure we have all seen faded pictures people have printed on their printers at home - they mainly use dye based ink). Not all photo papers will take pigment based ink so you need to take care there. I use Lyson cave paint ink (although I think they renamed it not so long ago). Hope this helps.
  5. Best of show Uwe - congratulations !! Nice shot !
  6. Really love that first shot with lots of sealions in it - super !
  7. hmm tricky one...... You could consider going somewhere between the two offerings and then take a little from the top and right, as I think no harm to reduce the amount of white on the right and it keeps the rule of thirds compositionally........
  8. Glad you solved it. When the program appears to lock up, it is likely that the Open File dialog still has focus even though it can not be seen (for instance positioned off screen, possibly a result of a change in resolution on the PC) and being a modal window it needs to be dealt with before the main program will work once more. Hence pressing the <Esc> key, which will close the window, and the other key sequence would reset the windows to their default positions. Worth trying if it happens you again, might be easier than a reinstall and a reboot ! Take care
  9. After you try opening a file press the <Esc> key followed by the <Ctrl>+<Shift>+S keys simultaneously and see if that fixes it. Good luck.
  10. Interesting HugyCheck info to be found here : http://www.uvfoto.com/hugyfot/PDF/D700HOUSE.pdf
  11. You probably have seen this recent post, that there are other ways to stop it rotating : http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=24605
  12. Steve has indeed made good improvements on the first shot. I think regarding the second that it was a shame the whole shark was not in the frame. It came up before in this forum that usually a subject that is nearly all in the frame does not look as good as either a more cropped subject or a whole subject. If that makes sense.
  13. Its hard to know how you envisage what the final result should look like, and indeed everyone's interpretation will be different. If by white lines you mean the lines in the coral itself, it is part of the image and any increase in contrast will bring them out. I had a go at your image, but I don't really know what you are after ! Best of luck.
  14. Low Res images will not print very very well, but may be of some use on Web sites. In the example above, I think the image needs the contrast enhanced, optionally you could decide to remove or leave in the white things on the surface of the water, and the image could do with a little sharpening. Just a thought.
