  1. Did you find this link https://www.backscatter.com/reviews/post/Sola-Lights-Tips-and-Troubleshooting is it not by accident in travel mode ? PS: when I had trouble with a LM light, the company was quite responsive so have you contacted them?
  2. I would just swap out a control. Do you really need all of them ? I use the sentinel. https://www.vividhousings.com/ I installed it on the lens release control. I was a bit suspcidious at first, thinking I would need all the controls, but you can use a pen or an old stick from your ice popsicle to release the lens. I know the control probably also controls the focus depth preview, but I have never used that underwater as on the surface it is already so dark.
  3. OK, then it might work, I am probably assuming too much from diving circumstances over here which is dark and cold... I am not a video shooter, so cant comment on the flog and the relative high base ISO.
  4. I dont understand the video question. If your base ISO is already 640, using a ND filter on your light or your lens you will need a higher iso with more noise etc.
  5. For stills ? The camera will see it as natural light and adjust shutter speed (depending on setting), I have no experience with this particular camera. I see the tough has 1/4 up to 1/2000 fast shutter speed. I dont see the f-stop range in the specs. But if the tough can expose on midday in bright sunlight, I am sure it will be able to correct. Are you running into limits with the one light ?
  6. I am guessing that will just use a DX size bit of the FF sensor. A digital crop / zoom. So maybe yes for the field of view, but not with same resolution.
  7. Bought 2 12 inch arms and clamps from Photec (@Photec) aka Mark. All went swimmingly and luckily was posted to my home in the Netherlands just before the transition brexit period ended.
  8. would that not just look better in colour? I dont mind black and white, but that is always what I think firstly.
  9. that one was with the subsee +5 or +10 attached. I should write these things down. Was at yellow submarine I think. Som nice big blobs of coral with quite a few of these in sand
  10. Some from Bonaire (2 years ago). 20180916-IMG_3194 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr 20180917-IMG_3380 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr 20180917-IMG_3361 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr 20180916-IMG_3056 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr 20180917-IMG_3332 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr
  11. I use a permanent travel catalog, made from an emptied copy of my main catalog. When on a trip I import to a collection (eg Bonaire 2020). I backup to separate hard drives. After the trip I first export (the images in the )collection as a catalog and then import that catalog in the main one as you described (including raw files). I think having a permanent (or semi permanent, as i sometimes change settings) is easier, since you can use your import and other presets.
  12. I like that it is not only far away stuff. My only Farnes trip was in 2012 _MG_8603 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr _MG_8629 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr
