  7. Hi, I'm planning to use the 5DmII underwater but I was wondering if some of you are using external monitor. If yes what are you using? Thanks,
  8. Thanks ! I will for sure have a look at the link you post. Temperature is not an issue for me, I'm used to dive in water down to 35F... altough I prefer warm water ;-) Thanks,
  9. I'm not yet there. I'm planning for a trip that should occur in January.
  10. Hi, Does anyone have recommendation regarding dive sites/operators around Huntigton Beach / Newport Beach in California. I'm from canada and will have to travel for a few days for work and I wanted to try a few dives around to shoot images. Are renoun kelp forest around ? Thanks in advance, Dominique
  11. - Nikon D70s - Aquatica housing Both really nice and clean. See pictures I got from it on my website: http://www.azur.qc.ca Serious buyer please... Price to discuss. Email me for questions: dominique@azur.qc.ca
  12. I think you are completely right with this point. This is probably true for the majority of us... We just have to remember great images that were shoot in the early years of u/w photography. Those great images stay, technology go away... I raised this question to get the comment of all about this. I'm actually using a D70s and thinking of renewing for better quality at higher ISO since I dive mostly in dark water. Basically I can : 1- go with a D300 and keep my lens; 2- go for FX with for let's say a D700 and buy all new lenses; 3- wait for and eventual new model...
  13. Hello, Reading this thread http://www.wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=28444 comparing FX and DX corner sharpness. From that thread understand that FX seems to be less sharp than DX. I was wondering what's the general opinion regarding to switching from DX to FX. This could be a big step since some might have to replace all lenses... Did the cost worth the investment. Probably for the future, since I'm sure manufacturer will no more follow DX path. But what about short term results ? Thanks for comments, Dominique
  14. Since I noticed there are a lot of really great pictures of u/w wildlife and landscapes and even if I already post one, I'm posting one of my wreck diver shots. I like it pretty much especially because it was my first try shooting using a remote/slave strobe... and result were not so bad. This image was taken in St-Laurence River in Canada... so it is green water here !
  15. Here is mine. Shot in Yukatan cenote Car Wash.
  16. In fact the reflexion problems I experimented were pretty clear, it was the ridges on the internal part. This occured even if I used the appropriate port extension from Aquatica, can't remember the number though.
  17. Here is picture of the Nikkor 12-24mm set at 12mm and set at 20mm. http://www.azur.qc.ca/domi/tmp/12-24mm-lens-web.jpg We can see the gap made by the internal moving barrel with lens. From my understanding I should cover both ridges the one on the moving part and the one on the external part of the lens (the part in which the internal barrel is sliding). If we stick the velour paper at angle on those ridges that form a kind of cone (to make sure it adhere to the ridges) the problem of the moving part and the height of the internal part of the lens comes up ... May be I did not get anything of Stephen's solution... and I should go take an english course... Thanks for your comments,
  18. I'm using an Aquatica housing and I have more frenquently this problem using Nikkor 12-24mm lens. See my post on this thread: http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?act=S...st=0#entry96437
  19. I'm just trying to figure out how this solution can really work with zoom lens... I have that Nikkor 12-24mm which have many of those concentric ridges around the front of the lens. Did this solution only apply for a fixed zoom setting? Because if you cover all the ridges with the velour paper, then you cannot adjust the zoom since the paper will be displaced by the movement of the lens. Thanks for your comments,
  20. Hello, I own my DSLR since a few months now and I noticed that when there is a lot of natural light and I shoot upward, even if I do not include a sunburst in the image, using a wide angle lens and a dome port; sometimes I have some lens image ghost reflected in the bottom of the image. This also occur when doing some split shoots in front of the sun. Is there any trick to follow to minimise the risk that those ghost appear ? Thanks,
  21. Thanks James. I guess the "around the corner" situation would be usefull inside a wreck or a cave. I will try next dive of that kind. If it doesn't probably the fiber cable Arnon_Ayal suggested would be a nice try,since product is pretty cheap. Arnon did you tried that cable? You just tie one side of the cable near the sensor on the strobe and that's it ? Dominic D70s, Aquatica housing, dual sb-105
  22. That can be part of the solution but it is only usefull if your slave strobe isn't facing the triggering strobe, since sb-105 already have a sensor on its face. Do you know if we can connect that part on a cable that can be placed to to the opposite side of the slave strobe face ? Dominic
