  1. Hi, what's the location please, as import tax is a major factor where I am. Thanks. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  2. Ah OK. I'm in Thailand. Import tax is a killer. Shame its just what I'm after. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  3. Where is this located? Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks Roberto, appreciate that. Yeah I get bored with the long cuts too, keeps the brain hooked if it's shorter cuts I think. I've been using the humble Sony A6000 with 16-50mm kit lens in Meikon housing for 4 years now and mostly the Meikon wet lens dome port with it. 2 Scubalamp V6k pro lights. Shoot everything in manual. Baby whale shark was so curious you literally couldn't get away from it. Kept swimming right at the divers, not seen one quite as curious as that before, it hung around several divers for 30 minutes. Thanks for the compliment.
  5. Evening folks, been a while since I made a video, hope you enjoy. Little Wild Things (watch in 1080p if poss, if not Youtube compression isn't the best) Thanks.
  6. Exactly the reasons I'm saving up for one. Apart from macro, which my eyesight isnt the best for, it's the best all rounder I can find. By the time you work out costs of wide and medium lenses and ports, the cost of the wacp with standard 28-70 kit lens isn't hugely more expensive. And the best part is getting it all on one dive. Looking forward to seeing more of your photos. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  7. Great photos. Now following you on Flickr too. Particularly interested in images taken with the wacp-1. Please post many more, thanks. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  8. Important expensive stuff like camera, lenses, hard drives etc all live in various peli cases stuffed with silicone sachets (I live in a house over the water, so the humidity is insane). Clamps, accessories and all the other stuff is in various plastic storage boxes like u can buy in B&Q. Usually ordered by 1- stuff I use, 2- stuff I sometimes use, 3-stuff I need to sell but convince myself one day in the never never I might actually need again. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  9. Hi, I do not have this setup but am considering it. Phil Rudin has the A7riv with 90mm and has written two excellent articles in UW photography magazine episodes 111 and 112, free for download. He has found a fix for your hunting lens issue which he explains how to use in detail. http://www.uwpmag.com/ Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  10. I had LR 5 for a long time but any time I had issues with my ageing Mac, it got harder and harder to re-load. Bought a LR subscription and never looked back. Yup you're paying a lot over a lifetime but if u use it professionally, or even as a serious amateur, it's worth it. If you want to own software outright, look at Luminar 4. I also have and use this. It does pretty much everything LR does with a sprinkling of PS thrown in too. Very intuitive. Basically the same layout and features of LR (don't know how they got away with it TBH as to me it's just a copy of LR with a few extra artificial intelligence features added). That aside, it is amazing software. Yes, they ask you to pay for new features, but at the level Luminar4 is now at, I cannot imagine anything else you would need to add.

  11. I upgraded to version 4 but in all honesty version 3 or even Luminar Flex is good enough. I work 90% in LR, then sometimes export to Luminar for an odd tweak, back into LR for final adjustments. I likely won't upgrade to the next version unless it's a gamechanging one.

  12. I use LR sub which I also think is worth the money. But can also recommend Luminar 4. It's a one off payment for life and in a nutshell is virtually identical to LR, with a lot of the functions of PS thrown in and a sprinkling of AI throughout. It's library function is more or less like LR too. Worth looking into. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  13. Thanks for your response David that is very good to hear. Fantastic. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  14. Good to know, thanks. I'm also considering the A7riii. Can I ask David if you have tried it UW for video and if so how did it fare? Thanks in advance. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
  15. Lol. I guess "amazing" is subjective. They sell their work daily to customers on the boat primarily (make a good living from it too), 99% of it isn't made public, some of them have IG accounts they post on from time to time but thats about it. But yeah I'll leave it at that and not hijack the thread any longer. Sent from my CLT-L29 using Tapatalk
