  1. I am selling a lightly used (by me!) SEACAM Silver D810 housing. It is fitted with Seacam's Vacuum leak detection system and will ship with a Seacam pump (not pictured). The housing is in excellent condition and ready to shoot lots more images. PayPal and worldwide shipping (at buyer's expense) are both fine. $3250 or near offer Please PM me for more details.
  2. Happy world turtle day! Black and white study of a green turtle (Chelonia mydas) poses in the sunbeams on the very lovely fringing reefs in the Red Sea around Port Ghalib, Egypt. I had a great time diving there with Emperor Divers.

  3. Hi Account anonymized as per GDPR. Adam
  4. I think it is very new, and since its release late last year, very few people have actually managed to get one underwater so far. I am sure that as people manage to get out diving more, they will be sharing their findings
  5. Hi, If you click the report post icon (top left in each reply), this will report the reply as spam to the moderators by email. Interestingly these spammers all seem to have joined early in 2019 and all the IP addresses are Russian origin. Of course, they could be using VPNs... Thank you
  6. Hi all, For some reason, our community is currently being targeted for spam from a bunch of IP addresses based in Russia. Many many thanks to those that are reporting these posts. I am busy deleting and banning the individual accounts. If you find any, please report them and I will get on to them as quickly as I can. I am sure that this will pass soon. In the interim, my apologies. Adam
  7. (I've moved this thread to the editing forum!) Actually Chris, if you stop paying your subscription, you retain everything except the edit module in Lightroom. You will still have a fully functional image browser indefinitely (or as long a your OS supports it). Any edits you have made up until the subscription lapses are available indefinitely via this browser and can still be exported as JPEGs. TIFFs etc. Obviously, you will no longer be able to access the edit pane to do any more... There are lots of ways of extracting Lightroom catalogs into other programs if required (Capture One have just refined theirs). Economically, the Adobe photography subscription plan at just under $10/month compares favorably with other options. Capture One is $299, so about 30 months of Lightroom + Photoshop. Its monthly plan is $20/month.. Adam
  8. Well said Tim. I have deleted the post. Adam
  9. So I have posted two more articles: https://wetpixel.com/articles/planning-your-next-trip-how-to-get-the-images-you-want And an excellent, thoughful response to planning travel post COVID-19 by Stephen Frink: https://wetpixel.com/articles/trip-planning-in-an-age-of-covid-19-by-stephen-frink
  10. There are some good resources on back up strategy here: https://wetpixel.com/articles/wetpixel-asks-the-pros-backup-strategies Field workflow is here: https://wetpixel.com/articles/tutorial-lightroom-field-workflow My own strategy is to back up all my files to multiple drives daily. I use an app called Chronosync (I'm on a Mac) that runs automatically every evening. Adam
  11. Hi all, As a possible antidote to COVID-19 induced depression, we are posting a series of trip planning and travel tip articles over the next few weeks on the front page.. The introduction is here: https://wetpixel.com/articles/new-series-travel-planning-for-amazing-imagery We are very privileged to host Allison Vitsky Sallmon's article (with her and Andy Sallmon's lovely images) about trip planning: https://wetpixel.com/articles/chasing-the-dream-by-allison-vitsky-sallmon It would be great if our community can share tip share in the forum too! We will share them via a front page article too.
  12. A mototi octopus (Poison occelate Octopus, Amphioctopus siamensis) emerges from its adopted home in a discarded glass bottle. While cleaning up the oceans is rightly an important priority, we also need to be aware that some animals have adopted the junk that we have discarded.

  13. The Z330s have domed lenses, so I guess their diffusers have to be domed too! It is all a question of horses for courses. Dome diffusers do produce a wide softer light, but as they spread the light, also make it less controllable. It is rare to be lighting up a whole scene with strobe light, so often, having control of its fall is as important as its quality. I am a big fan of diffusers that modify the color temperature of the strob'e's output, particularly for those strobes that put out a cool light. For me, this is typically more important than the shape of the actual diffuser. Adam
  14. I just looked again...and the shade on my Zen 170mm is removable! My apologies. Adam
  15. I have 170mm domes from Seacam and Zen, which are kind of a half way house. It works fine with the Sigma 15mm, (without shaved lens hood) and is significantly lighter and smaller than the 230mm dome. It also works well with the Nikon 8-15mm, but the shade intrudes at 8mm, so it is not possible to shoot circular fisheye. It is possible to shoot splits with it, although the rule is that the bigger the dome the easier/better it is to shoot them!
