  1. Hello Pavel, thank you for taking the time to answer. Regarding HSS. I have seen the specs of the new Retra strobes and it shows "HSS ready". What do you think about it? does it means that that my credit card will be bleeding soon? Kind regards, Joss
  2. Hello Pavel, From your last post, would it be ok deduct that a D500 could do 1/320 and 1/500 with anuticam's TTL board working on Manual? I'm not really after TTL, but 1/500 in manual will be quite interesting. Kind regards, Joss
  3. Hello Jon Jake, I'm really curious about your computer's holder. Could you please share some details? Sorry about derailing this topic, but I have been looking for something similar for a perdix. Regards, Joss
  4. I just switched to small handles on my D500 housing and I´m liking it. I have “regular” size hands, but I was not able to move the focus points while having my finger on the shooting handle. When doing macro, most of the time I use a finger of my left hand to “balance” myself. With the short handles now I can: hold my rig, change focus points and shoot with my right hand. I have the impression that the standard handles are for divers wearing gloves… I think you made a good decision, happy shooting! Joss
  5. Hello, would you ship the Aquatica Port extension #18453 to Mexico city by USPS? What the price would be? Are you including o-rings? Kind regards, Joss
  6. I have had those problems using only the Tokina 10-17 on my D500. What works for me is screwing the lens a bit harder / faster to the camera (this is the only lens that needs rough love). If I don't do that, the lens does not focus automatically. It might be the same issue with your teleconverter. Kind regards, Joss
  7. Hello and thanks for the comment, Maybe I´m not 100% clear. I´m looking for long exposures with rear curtain as described in Alex Mustard book, chapter "Panning and Spins". I want the subject to be frozen by the strobes with the blur going to the opposite direction of the subject. But I have failing miserably on the focusing part. Kind regards, Joss
  8. Hello, I'm looking for advice with panning shots. I understand the concept of using front courtain but I want to try the rear courtain. My question is, how to achieve focus when the camera is stationary and using rear curtain. Should I try 3d focus system (nikon shooter)? Maybe moving the focus point to the left if the subject is moving right? Thanks and kind regars, Joss
  9. Is the 28.5mm port extension ring (#48453) still available? What would be the price?
  10. I know this is very old thread, but I wanted to share a cheaper solution for the Zen 100mm dome ports: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/179425-REG/OP_TECH_USA_8001132_Hood_Hat_Large.html It also work with the 87 Nauticam macro port, however the medium size fits better (in my opinion) https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/179424-REG/OP_TECH_USA_8001122_Hood_Hat_Medium.html Regards, Joss
  11. Thank you very much Marli! Juvenile egg cowrie. Kind regards, Joss
  12. Hello, just saw this nudibranch @ east of Mauritius. It is the 1st time I see it and I'm having problem to ID it. Maybe around 40mm. Help will be much appreciated. Thanks, Joss
  13. According to the specs at B&H, the new one is 7.8mm shorter. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/674566-REG/Kenko_PRO3001_4XDGXN_Teleplus_PRO_300_DG.html https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1446085-REG/kenko_k_tphdpro1_4_n_teleplus_hd_pro_1_4x.html Not sure if current zoom rings will work but most important the 20mm extensions might be too long. Kind regards, Joss
  14. Just try the "Release Button to use dial" and after a few dives you will get use to it. If I want to change the speed, i just hit the back lock focus after the iso button.
