  1. Thanks, maybe this is the issue. It is bigger in low light condition. I have read that the minimum underwater is 5inches (underwater photography guide) at 28, is it correct ?
  2. I use flexible spot small to focus on the eyes and then I zoom to 40-50mm and the focus is hunting sometime good or sometime focus not in the eyes Inviato dal mio iPad utilizzando Tapatalk
  3. Same question for me. I use the IV with single strobe and the challenge is focus hunting when zooming beyond 35mm with difficult light condition.
  4. Thanks for your comments. I like the current setup which I use with a single strobe sea&sea D2 but I have the following pain points: Focus hunting when zooming in difficult light condition beyond 35mm Battery life Recycle time I love the compactness and good image quality. I can’t give the compact size but I’d like to improve the above points.
  5. Hi, I have lately read the article on Ikelite about the best compact setup with advanced performance and in the article they were suggesting the canon sl3 as the real step forward if you want keep a compact setup. I’m a mirrorless fan topside but the argument for the underwater setup make a lot of sense. What do you think? i
  6. You are right most of the pictures are around 2.8 and I should learn to use M but why my friends with the Olympus tg4, Inon S2000 stone and automode is always able to capture good pictures? In theory Sony RX100 should be a better set up...
  7. Since I make few dives per year I always use not rechargeable batteries...anyway thanks for helping
  8. Thanks for all the feedback and I’m sorry for the stupid question. I’ve read a lot of articles for strobe positioning and general setting but never realised that the problem can be the overall exposure. I need to be honest and even on land I never use M so maybe I need to start from there. I have a friend with an Olympus tg4 with single strobe and he always use Auto and in general he takes better photo than me, the blue is definitely better (find picture below). I can’t match yet that blue Thanks to all Inviato dal mio iPad utilizzando Tapatalk
  9. Thanks both for the quick feedback I changed the setting and the position of the strobe, find new position below What do you think? Thanks Giovanni Inviato dal mio iPad utilizzando Tapatalk
  10. Hi, I moved from my Olympus tg2 to Sony rx100 iv with single strobe sea and sea d2 and I get very controversial results. At shallow depth it looks good but I can basically even avoid strobe but after 10m the situation change drammatically, the awb in the screen looks very blueish and after the flash the image is sometime overexposed or the opposite. I shot in S with 1/100 iso80 and flas in ds ttl. Strobe in center position above the camera, diffuser 100 degree. Thanks for your comments Inviato dal mio iPad utilizzando Tapatalk
  11. Thanks, I bought already a strobe but I didn't use yet. The other things I'm. It happy is the missing details of the picture when you soon in looks out of focus or missing sharpness and you can use raw to improve some rendering Inviato dal mio iPad utilizzando Tapatalk
  12. Thanks for taking the time to support me in this dilemma. I didn't use the strobe yet and in April I'll go diving this is the reason why I'm questioning all the system. I took the shot at 15m of depth and I was around 1-2m from the shark, for me very close with natural light and red filter. I don't like the quality of the shot but I understand that iso800 it's tough for that camera hence my question. Inviato dal mio iPad utilizzando Tapatalk
  13. Would you recommend rx 100 iv or g7x Ii ? Inviato dal mio iPad utilizzando Tapatalk
