  1. I just got a un technics converter today. Installation was easy.

     

    I did a few test shots and they look good.

     

    Odd, they recommend for the Em1 ii to set the flash compensation to +0.5, but I swear the camera goes from 0.3 to 0.7

    Still it is cool to be able to + or - the light from the camera (I need to play with assigning a button for it.

     

    I won't be able to play with the system in the water until my channel islands trip in August.


  2. I would take test shots of the bait...Trying to keep a low ISO as possible....200 to 400. I think I had to use 800 in the am.

     

    White balance correction in Lightroom works wonders (I did not have it on the trip).

     

    At depth, you have the sharks cruzing by slowly, sometimes close. With no strobes, you can correct in light-room.

    There would be 6 of them making circles under the boat. Maybe you could get strobes on them if they came in close enough...


  3. Lots of good info I above wish I had when I went. Yes, strobes while nice when they came in close, but for me the sharks were not coming close frequently.

     

    Note that you have 2x different meterings areas, depending on the time of day and how the sharks are approaching....from below and from the side near the surface.

    In the am, it's a bit dark and I would have to bump up the ISO a bit. But later with more light at the surface, I could lower the ISO.

    In the PM, it varied depending on which side of the boat.

    The point is don't forget to change the ISO as the light/ positions change.

     

    For me, I used the Olympus 12-40 pro...as the sharks kept their distance.

     

    Only a few times they came RIGHT in close and I blinked..and that was it. Maybe it was an off week.

     

    Be careful in the cage, it you get bounced around and the bars in our cage were not padded.

     

    The camera Dome and cage bar..not a good thing.

     

    I found that post production white balance correction was a huge help.

     

    Enjoy.
