    Inon Z240s
  1. In a few weeks I am going to be in Bimini for a quick dive to shoot Hammerhead sharks. I will be shooting with a Sony RX100V in a Nauticam housing and the Nauticam WWL-1. I would like to get some input on how to light the action, I have a few options available but since I'm only doing one dive I have to make a choice and live with it. Option 1: Standard two strobe setup using two Inon Z-240s. Traditional setup, simple and familiar but I have to pause for the pop-up flash to recycle between frames. Also as the action heats up (hopefully) the particulate in the water will make backscatter a real problem. Option 2: Use natural light with a magic filter. This dive is not deep, around 15' of typically clear water. One advantage of this approach is I can make use of the the camera 24 frames/sec for some great action sequences. Option 3: Use a pair of Sola 3800 movie lights. I've never shot still using movie lights and I'm not sure if they will have the same coverage and quality of light like using my Inon strobes. I leaning toward going with Option 2 and using natural light with a magic filter but I would appreciate feedback from some others on this forum. Thanks.
  2. Nice shots, post more if you can!! I have to say I love this little rig with the WWL-1, it's a very capable compact system.
  3. What a great encounter and some really nice images. What camera rig did you use for these?
  4. Stop by the ClicknDive.com booth for a chance to win a 5-night dive package at Scuba Club Cozumel. Mention Wetpixel for a double contest entry, tell'em James sent you!!! Unfortunately I cannot make the show but hopefully I can be represented. Regards, James clickndive.com
  5. Jeff, I have used the D6 for over four years now and I just had to send it in for a battery replacement but other than that it has been a trusted piece of my dive kit for a while now. I am not a fan of air-integrated computers so I went with the D6 over the D9. Do you need a local (Miami) dealer to help her? James
  6. Jeff, Excellent stuff, looks like it was an awesome trip. Was the 10-17 your weapon of choice or the 17-35? James
  7. Eric, Congratulations, great images. What size prints are those? James
  8. It's a thalassinidean shrimp. Check out http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=8652&hl= -James
  9. Jeff, Beautiful stuff, I really would like to see the first one as a large print. Are using any in-water strobes along with the studio lights above? James
  10. That's sweet, all saw on my safety stops at Darwin were silkies.
  11. Pretty dramatic footage, I hope it is not used to further restrict cage diving in Guadalupe.
  12. Jeff, Excellent images, I am envious. Available light and ISO 800, the D700 yields impressive results. James
  13. Jeff, Nice set of images, I think the croc fish is my favorite. How was Mauricio's workshop? James
