  2. I am still on 6.14. Still possible for my camera, as my camera still outshines me. There are tricks to keep using the map module (get a google billing account and generate your own map module) and the face recognition part (run as date). Prolost also has dehaze presets, that work with LR 6.14. With the DNG converter trick you can continue using it for other cameras as well. I dont need the full photoshop. I drink coffee, but dont use starbucks. Ligthroom here is not 9,99 dollars, but 12,09 euros (more like 15 dollars) per month. Every month, if you use it a lot or not. I paid for LR 5 and LR 6. I am willing to pay a fee for an upgrade but not subscription. I am quietly hoping that affinity photo (that works quite well as a PS replacement) will ultimately do a catalog type of programme.
  3. Getting into the gass laws again. Warmer would mean higher pressure. Colder less pressure so 'more' vacuum. So if the circuitry measures the pressure, the housing cooling down should not give a false warning, the housing warming up could give a false warning. if the nauticam circuitry is temperature compensated (and this seems to indicate it does), then you might have a slow leak. PS: I also use the sentinel. I've had false warnings with the older version, in a warm pool.
  4. 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?
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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 ?
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. would that not just look better in colour? I dont mind black and white, but that is always what I think firstly.
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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

  18. My only thought is, posting this on wetpixel (forum or facebook) is like preaching to your own crowd. We should try sharing elsewhere as well.
  19. I quite liked my Netherlands freshwater version of the gobies in the bottle. Unfortunately it is an invasive species. Neogobius melanostomus Round goby 20190530-IMG_7133 by Gerard Wijnsma, on Flickr
  20. (and make adjustments for fresh or salt water).
  21. yes with xrite color true app. but only if you view images through that app. https://www.xrite.com/categories/calibration-profiling/colortrue
  22. It is not an issue, it is by design. Wetpixel is meant to be a community for people tot discuss underwater photography and videography, not ebay. So if you just want to flog stuff, the 3 post limit might discourage you from using Wetpixel only as a sales tool. To keep out spam bots, you must first react to an existing post (preferably the introduction thread). People that are willing to contribute are more than welcome.
  23. For canon, on a Canon 70d the DGX 1,4 works with 10-17mm. Altough macro, it will work with a 100mm f2.8 USM macro (not the L variant), but you have to disable back or frontfocus correction or the camera wont react.
  24. Reviving this old topic. I use Scubapro Jet fins for drysuit diving. They are also fine with a 7mm wetsuit in colder water. However, I am going on a trip to the Azores in september. I've been looking into fins for there. I would normally go with booted fins. The freediving fins will probably have lots of power, but I am not a freediver. I would probably need socks as well. I broke my booted plastic Seac fins. I was thinking about Oceanic Accel as travel fins, but I have some doubts on the power, would they be ok snorkeling? It is mostly boat diving. Anyone has experience with those? its about 600 grams for a single one, so 1,2 kg for a pair. https://www.oceanicworldwide.com/us/accel-fin-color-kit/ Other options will be a bit heavier. (thinking about getting regular Mares Quattros) The open boot Quattro fins are actually heavier then the booted fins. That will be about 2 kg for the pair.
