  1. Just surfaced from a dive Macro mode does indeed celebrate the light into a narrow mean - this is offset by the snoot's built in diffuser. Thank you
  2. Was using it in macro Ahh your comment makes sense I think the macro produces a hot spot because maybe it's intended to be used with the snoot The snoot has a built in diffuser
  3. Thanks, Tim. You are a beacon of light. Pun, decidedly, intended.
  4. Thanks, Tim. I also have the backscatter snoot. Will experiment with it after I've gotten accustomed to the light without a snoot aid. So that I know how a snoot affects the system - if I use both at the same time, I won't know what affect what has. Get used to the light as a baseline, then can note how a snoot affects it.
  5. Thank you, Tim. Do you suppose using a flash is advantageous over a continuous light LED? I am using the backscatter macro/wide 4300 in macro mode. I could try using the lower-brightness modes.
  6. adam, thank you I figured that and was hoping that exposure compensation would compensate for over exposed areas Bu this has also happened when I have set the light directly over the subject Like this photograph
  7. adam, I'm referring to the hotspot from the light I figured the brighter the light, the faster the shutter speed and lower ISO
  8. Heres a photograph taken in RAW and converted to a jpg without any PP. How can I avoid the hotspot? Exif: ISO: 100 EV: -0.7 F/6.3 1/125s
  9. Looking for composition in water as a starting point. Then PP technique as well.
  10. Yes - it looks like the fish significantly grew in the three months since the photograph. I'll try iNaturalist. Thank you, Chris.
  11. The photographs and video were taken months apart. But I am fairly certain it is the same fish. Months ago I saw two next to each other. The video from a week ago was of one only. I think its the same fish because the site is a 101 foot seabed wreck dive in the middle of the sea. Theres nothing around the wreck except sand. The video was taken in the exact location I found it months ago. Really, within 1 foot away maybe.
  12. thank you, Chris I do not know what it is then
  13. Diggy, I agree with you. I still think its a stargazer
  14. At 31 meters / 101 feet Night dive Footage & photographs :
  15. Certainly agree that two articulating arms are better than one. But two short or a short end a long? Thank you.
