  1. Hey, guys Im looking to do some filming in the estuaries targeting crocs, barramundi and other animals that primarily live in the mangroves. In alot of the locations I want to film it is unsafe to get into the water so I will be filming from a small boat or kayak. I want to beable to film under the roots from two angles (above water and underwater) and am going to be building what i think is called a jib camera crane. I have no video experience nor am I the best with diy but will be giving it a shot. I have acouple gopro2 cameras lying around so I will be using those, maybe getting a gopro3 but not sure. Some of the things that Im am trying to do with my device are: -being able to manipulate the camera from ~20' -film multiple angles from a single rig and be able to view what the camera sees in live feed from the boat -be able to "pan" and tilt the underwater camera left and right, up and down (not as important for the above water camera. The last one is what im am having problems with. My current idea is to use wires and manimpulate the cameras similar to a marionette. This seems rather complicated though.

  9. hey guys im caught in a real pickle. ive purchase a 50d with a sea and sea housin under the impression that i would be using sea and sea strobes. if have resently desided that i may want to go with some inon z240 however im am worried that they will not be compatible with my 50d. i have been told that the Sea & Sea YS Converter /C TTL Converter for Canon should work but ppl for the most part are not sure. has anyone tryed this out? does anyone no if the inon ttl are the same as the sea and sea? i no the sea & Sea canon Converter ttl converter III works on the 40d but not the 50d
  10. i was checkin out the photo of the week contest of last week and was wondering if the photos are posted in any particular order (after the 1st, 2nd 3rd, is it 4th, 5th 6th....?) or is it just random
  11. hey how did you get all those colours in the squid shots. did they look that colourful under water?
  12. it seems that everyone out there is using a 100mm lens with teleconverters and\or diopters, why not use a Canon EF 180mm instead. does anyone use one of these lens? i am currious as to the depth of field of this lense vs a 100mm with a +5 diopter or 1.7 teleconverter. the only problem i forsee is the camera shake issue.
  13. i just recieved an email and it is compatablie with the new YS CONVERTER / C but not the old version III. thats a relief
  14. is it possible to use ttl with a cannon 50d and the sea and sea 40dmdx housing? i have heard that the sea and sea cannon III ttl converter does not work with the 50d
