  1. Thanks Tim Looks like the path of least resistance, so it will likely be mine... Anyway Happy New Year to all from snowy Vernon BC, buried under 70cm of fresh snow overnight. Thinkin' about blue water and sandy beaches... ian
  2. So, I got a shiny new MacPro for my business, in my home office... sweet!! Transferred from my 2010 MacPro by swapping over drives and updating software... sweet!! Only issue was Lightroom 6.14. Needs to be reinstalled... let's see? Turns out that Lightroom 6.14 is 64 bit software, but the flipping' Adobe installer is 32 bit and will NOT install the application on this machine. I am now faced with the dillemma of subscription vs another platform. I did not see this coming. Thanks, Adobe.

  4. Hi Bruce Thanks for the reply and interest. All my Seacam gear has moved on to new owners with the exception of my Superdome. ian
  5. Tim When I look through my wife's wardrobe and find a dress with tags on, she usually replies; "Oh, that old thing." Try that with the lenses. They are all black, round, and look pretty much the same... What could go wrong? ian

  13. Super helpful:) I have not heard of this recipe before, but it does make sense. I am not clear on how Subal, Seacam etc come up with their recommendations, I am guessing by doing tests in their kitchen sinks also:))) ian
  14. I have recently been up to no good in my wife's soaker tub. (I live a long way from the ocean) I tested the Nikon 8-15 Fisheye and Nikon 20mm f/1.8. My goal was to assess the Seacam Superdome vs 8 inch glass Subal FE port with differing extensions. The Subal port chart calls for a 20 mm extension, as does Seacam. Adam Hanlon reported using a 30mm extension with the Superdome when testing the 20mm f/1.8. (Not sure where he got his secret sauce.) I used the D850 in Nauticam with the appropriate port adapters. My results showed no clear difference between the two ports with the 8-15mm (no big surprise) but images with both lenses were sharper with a longer extension (33mm) with the Subal dome. There was minimal vignetting with the 8-15, and none with the 20mm lens. I purchased a 28mm ring for Subal/3 and got similar results to the 33mm ring, but without vignetting. The 20mm rectilinear performed quite poorly below f/11 and was marginal (by Nikonos standards) at f/16. That is the smallest aperture on that lens. It performs well centrally, and would be OK with blue water at the edges. No diopter was used. The 20mm lens did perform much better with the Superdome, and 20mm extension, although not great. Same conclusion as above. The 8-15 was good in both ports, with some improvement with the 28mm extension over the 20mm with the Subal port. I did not test the Superdome at longer extensions. Circular images where good with both ports, and also showed vignetting at 33mm extension, but not 28mm on Subal Conclusion: The 8-15 performed well in all setups, somewhat improved with the 28mm extension. The 20mm lens was marginal in performance with the Subal dome and acceptable with Superdome. Probably not worth the extra effort. The point of all this was to decide whether the Superdome was worth humping around the world with it's size and weight. I concluded that apart from over/unders there was not much advantage to me. I think in future I will leave my Superdome at home.

  18. I do this and it works great. I use a second computer on my wrist as the primary and it stays with me between dives.. Both are Sunnto and use the same algorithm. I put the larger Vyper on the arm, so I can see it with my poor eyesight:) It's like having your speedometer in your car, right in front of you. The Vyper nd D6i are set on the same channel with the pressure sensor so both give me my gas status. I also have a small SPG stowed along my BCD so I also have redundancy here on gas supply. This has saved me on a few dives when the sensor and computers stop communicating. ian
  19. Hey Thanks for the response. I ended up buying one from Reef:) ian
