  1. I don't like fisheyes, so that would not be my recommendation. I was using a 14 - 42 plus a WWL-1 on a micro-4/3 camera and found that I didn't really need or want the WWL-1, so I took it off. Most of my video was probably in the 25 - 35 mm range. For whatever that's worth.
  2. For video, I use Pinnacle Studio Ultimate. I know that it isn't all that popular here, but it works well for me.
  3. Nice work, you got some good footage there. Someday, I would love to see that, too.
  4. Thanks Chris, that is a great and useful analysis.
  5. I've seen the ads, but nothing more. I am also curious about them.
  6. FWIW, I am using a Small HD monitor and highly recommend some sort of monitor for shooting video. It has really helped me out. I was looking at the Ninja V, but there wasn't a housing for it available at the time that I was purchasing, which is why I ended up with the one that I have. I think that there may other, cheaper options out there now, and I would certainly suggest that you try one out, I think that you will like using it.
  7. You may have already checked here, but have you tried suppliers like DigiKey and Mouser electronics? Those are my go-to vendors for electronic parts.
  8. I wonder what that snapper was "thinking" - very odd.
  9. Chris is a very good choice, congratulations.
  10. I have used several iterations of the Oceanic ProPlus console, mostly for the large easy to read screen. I also wear a wrist computer as a backup.
  11. Yes, I agree. At first, I was put off by it, and then quickly realized that it was a conscious decision - and a good one for the story that you were telling. Nice job.
  12. I have no idea what it is, but that is a nice find.
  13. Beautiful work, very impressive. What a great opportunity that was. Thanks for sharing that.
  14. I would like to thank Lutfu for a very smooth transaction. Very good communication throughout the process, and very quick payment. I hope that you enjoy the lens, and look forward to seeing images using it soon.
  15. This post should be moved to the Classifieds section. This is not the appropriate place for a wanted ad. Sorry.
  16. I am thinking of selling mine, but I am in the US, so shipping might be expensive.
  17. Your comments on the photos are a nice touch as well, good job.
  18. Great stuff, thanks. Great idea to help preserve the Roatan Marine Park, thanks.
  19. Yeah, my wife and a couple of others in the group that I travel to Roatan with routinely carry magnifying glasses underwater. I love that Arrow Blenny shot, but all of yours are really nice.
  20. One other thing to consider is an external monitor. I exclusively shoot video, so that was essential for me, but it certainly makes it much, much easier to see what is or isn't in focus. It does add a lot of cost and complexity to your apparatus, though, and adds to the drag of the system while swimming. So, there are trade-offs, but for me, an external monitor helps immensely.
  21. Lol, I can certainly understand that part. Whenever I clean up the dog hairs from my single Golden, it looks like I should be able knit a sweater from all the hair.
  22. Thank you, I appreciate that - and sorry for the thread hijack.
  23. I agree that this is likely to take a while to resolve. Also, I want to point out that Biorxiv is for preprints, that is, they have not gone through peer review yet, so be very cautious about anything published there. It could well be correct, but also might have errors in methodology or analysis, for example. I am not saying that it is wrong, but to read papers there with a higher than normal level of skepticism.
