  1. I did not have any of the GHx and for video so can't comment. When I was in Tiger Beach I would say the camera would not do one hour continuous recording.
  2. Some settings suck the battery life. Continuous auto focus, Quick AF, and of course LCD brightness and power zoom lenses (I do not use power zoom) are a few culprits
  3. Yes but the land strobe needs to have the 'fire signal' so I guess it is pretty much identical Mine needs to be on TTL mode and this is software and there is no feature to be controlled by the strobe I guess it just fires full stop until it can
  4. I would expect both to be a cut of a 12 cm radius and be made of same thickness glass. either way you are unlikely to see any difference. The 9" white balance port is acrylic for what I recall and that may bother you depending on how the lens is prone to flare
  5. Can't put comments on the video Other than the image being a bit dark looks very sharp. A bit of slow mo here and there but generally all is in focus and sharp as it could be taking into account the suspended particles Close up shots very strong mid shots a bit weaker due to conditions and light/ color but seems a step forward
  6. So the HSS is performed by the strobe not by the converter then?
  7. I have read that the UWT TTL Converter now supports HSS for Retra I wonder if the camera needs to be put in TTL for HSS to work as this is the behaviour I get with HSS land flash where HSS is not available in manual Maybe Pavel Kolpakov can clarify? Interesting development nonetheless Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. What Bill says is theoretical Practically you need to see what is the lens working distance in water and then see how the close up lens improves it I found all those calculations to be incorrect Sometimes a lens focusses so close that a wet lens has zero benefit despite the formula Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I would get a longer lens as priority then add a close up lens for further magnification This will also help compressing the background behind the subject Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Diopters reduce working distance they do not magnify anything. The magnification comes from getting closer and is only controlled by the camera field of view and focus distance. You do not say if you use a DX of FX camera in any case it is preferable to work at 100mm+ equivalent for macro so that you have some working distance for the strobes this also helps with skittish subjects. Obviously if visibility is not a major issue
  11. The transition from GoPro to a normal camera can be frustrating. The GoPro is a fixed focus camera you just go around and snap away. Image quality in simple terms is crap however it is extremely easy to use. Cameras have higher image quality can white balance and are more versatile however you need to get to grips with the fact that you need to understand the basics of depth of field and ports otherwise you will end up with many blurred shots. The investment from GoPro to camera with wet lens (mandatory for video) is significant so consider that carefully
  12. It may be a problem if you keep them always on. Except some specific scenarios I don’t so they will still be 50% and you can top them up Keldan ergonomics are the best from that point of view...but expensive especially as spare batteries are not cheap Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Match the lights is only possible at full and half power Google Interceptor121 DivePro g18 review Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
