  3. Wonderful site! Tons of great artists!
  4. A-HA! Ok. I get it now. I messaged Ryan through their site about this. One more question - how much can you bump up your sync speed on the D7000 by using this method? Thanks.
  5. Great info. I wonder - is the only way to use a pocket wizard with a bag such as that made by Ewa? Has anyone used a pocket wizard inside their housing? Instead of a pocket wizard (since I don't have one now), I was thinking to just try a nikon speedlight (s) in slave mode, triggered by an ikelite strobe aimed right at it - this would get the same job done, no? I just wonder how dangerous it is if the speedlight accidentally goes in the water by mistake and releases it's full charge.
  6. This will save me a lot of time experimenting! So glad I asked about this on here. Thanks again to everyone.
  7. Thanks Drew. I posted the lighting setup I'm thinking of trying here: http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=45702 I haven't used pocket wizards but I'll look into them.
  8. This is a great discussion. Thanks so much everyone for your feedback. Drew and Jeff, You two got to what's really at the heart of the matter - why am I even trying the Mk II. I just wanted to try full frame. Perhaps I have a bit of gear lust / cropped sensor inferiority complex. The truth is I'm getting into conceptual art stuff in the pool and a very large portion of my favorite photographers shooting that style are shooting full frame with the 5dMarkII, so I thought I'd give it a go. Am I crazy? For action shots it's clearly not better than the d7000 (another key issue here is that the shutter speed on the D7000 can be pushed to 320 with strobes and the 5dMarkII is limited to 200 - what a bummer they didn't upgrade this in the mkIII). For my next pool shoot, I'm going to rent the 16-35 I USM as well as a 28mm USM 1.8 and see what happens (leaning away from fisheye lenses due to their distortion). Thanks again guys!
  9. Thanks a lot for the feedback! Can you tell me, is this a situation where you think TTL would work well if I had it on the strobes that are in the water?
  10. Hello Wetpixel! As a result of reading through some threads on here I came up with this potential setup for pool work, which works with gear I have access to. I've been trying to figure out a good setup to shoot conceptual shots with a model. Getting access to a pool to experiment with this has been kinda tough so I want to be ready. Here's my diagram, is there anything anyone would do differently? I have a SB700 Speedlight I could try as well. P.S. Thanks so much to everyone for their contribution in these forums, it's been a great source of info! :-)
  11. I recently experimented with a Canon 5dMkII, shooting a competitive swimmer. I was using a 15mm fisheye. I found it to be veeeeeery sloooooow to focus. This is compared to my normal rig which is a Nikon D7000 w/ tokina 10-17mm. So, I'm wondering what wide angle lens would be the fastest focusing choice for the Canon 5dMkii? Is the 5dMkii going to be painfully slow to focus for action shots no matter which lens I try, due to the 9-point AF system? Thanks a lot.
  12. Hi there, My name is Pauline and I joined this forum to ask some questions and maybe sell some of my used gear down the line. Hailing from Redondo Beach. Long live Catalina Island. Cheers.
