  1. If you decide to cut the cable, I have learn that a nail cutter works fine.
  2. What do you mean by "too long"? You might try the Aquatica Sync Cord Clamps https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/164829-REG/Aquatica_19215_Sync_Cord_Clamps.html Or something similar from an electrical hardware shop.
  3. That would depend on what lenses you already have, you can also try a tele-converter with the tokina 10-17. If I were to choose a single lens, the 10-17 would be the best option.
  4. Dive computer bip? C'mon, there is nothing more annoying during a dive than a computer beeping! I know is not your case, but now a days there are better options like the vibrating alarms. Cheers, Joss
  5. I get surprised at every time I see folks comparing the new Retras Vs the YS-D3's. Just make a search here on WP about S&S strobes. If you want to save some money better think about the Inons.
  6. Awesome work! At some point it is so close that it gets scary. What focal length was used?
  7. I like the say to hell part. What trigger system are you using? I would get new Inon or Retra strobes if time and budget allow for.
  8. Another option is to try with the TRT electronics trigger, it works with the YS-D3 strobes according to their webpage.
  9. Plus one or two steps of dynamic range. Surely that will do the trick for me.
  10. Hi, what about the Sony compact RX100-VA? Nauticam still sells the housing for it and you can add macro and wide wet lenses.
  11. Hi, I’m sorry about it, I don’t think that S&S cables make any difference. I use the Howshot 613L + Retras + UWT trigger without problems. Regards, Joss
  12. Out of curiosity,I would like to understand why wet add lenses work on mirrorless full frame cameras but not on dsrl cameras. For example, Nauticam WWL-1 works with full frame Sony but not on dsrl. Nauticam is announcing the new WWL-C with the Nikon Z-50. Doesn’t the Z-50 has the same sensor of the D500? Is the distance between the sensor and the main lens that important? Kind regards, Joss
  13. I would recommend: San Benedicto – El cañon: Wide angle or Fisheye San Benedicto – El Boyler: Fisheye for Mantas and dolphins, they get super close. Roca Partida: Wide angle and maybe no strobes? For Hammerhead shoals in the distance Socorro – Cabo Piers: Fisheye you will see mantas and dolphins Socorro – Punta tosca: Fisheye or Wideangle Regards, Joss
  14. I believe D500 is not a back illuminated sensor. I would not expect many UW photographers upgrading from D850 to D880. Or from D500 to D580. Maybe for those going full frame, the especulated D880 might be appealing. In my case, current situation does not allow me to think about upgrading any time soon. Joss
  15. I shoot underwater with a D500. I only do photos and the specs of the rumored D580 don't make me think about upgrading anytime soon. Maybe a back-illuminated sensor with higher dynamic range?Anyway, I’m just not ready for mirrorless and I’m very happy with my D500 and current lenses. I wonder how Nikon splits its sales between cameras and lenses.
