haa haa haaa...... :heart:kthan said:4. S2 beats all other DSLR hands down when it comes to image reproduction. The prints are amazing, very velvia like - rich colour saturation. A Fuji-Xerox printing consultant can vouch for this!
6. Better image reproduction. Oops, I think I have said this at point 4.
Hi itchy,itchy said:Wow thanks Eric for those pointers, and I am really new at this so am just reading up on photography for beginners and also u/w tips. I still dunno what TTL is but reading this forum gives me alot of inspiration to perform. Currently I am using but a simple coolpix 3100 which has given me plenty of joy since upgrading from a philips I dunno what model at 1.3mp 3 years ago.
I discovered that digideep has showcased some u/w cases for 3100 also which now makes it an even worse dilemma for me to purchase a dslr due to budgetary constraints, understnd that casings can run up to the $1000 mark for d70. It's a real bummer. I'm not exactly rich or have a steady job, student status right now. But then again, I'm just not satisfied with the pics my dive buddy came up with on our last trip to Aur. He was using a Canon A80 which I believe is more powerful than 3100. He is quite an experienced diver but I guess u/w photography requires its own set of skills and technical aspects to take note of. Perhaps its a real big jump to take and perhaps I should start honing my skills on land first if I do purchase a DSLR (SLR just doesn't quite make sense to me right now).
Thanks for the welcome too by the way, oh I also like to use AA batts, same reason for buying the 3100 and that philips i dunno what model. Great tip.
hmmm... excellent post, I suggest cutting his post out as an article post...waisj said:Hi itchy,
The DSLR housing easily top 2000 SGD... even without port and stuff... Unless you want to hunt for it in the second market. which some of our members advocate .... Which i do condone.... :bigeyes:
if you really want to save some scuba bucks then look around ebay more for cheap deals....
Do note some hidden costs as eric has pointed out though..
Go with his advice and you won't go wrong........
dun worry, most good housing comes with a viewfinder magnifierGoondoo said:Errr... Just to highlight a point....
Quality, shuttle lag, prices etc aside....
I just cant stand the fact that I will need to look through that pathetic view finder with my mask on when using DSLR....
does it really helps significantly?? I havent got the chance to use one yet....kthan said:dun worry, most good housing comes with a viewfinder magnifier
so far it works for me....as for framer, never heard of, but i have not heard of a lot of other things too.Goondoo said:does it really helps significantly?? I havent got the chance to use one yet....
Even the view finder seems quite small leh.... and how to u make sure the picture is correctly focused from the magnified but still pathetic hole?
Does anyone use a framer for DSLR UW photography on macro?
oi waisj,waisj said:Hi Goondoo,
It does take some time to get used to, but it is not that bad. You'd might find it hard it adjust with just a normal viewfinder, but with a magnified one, (which is available from most vendors,if not all) focusing is not a problem.
But is you are feeling rich and would like to blow some money why not get the SeaCam s45 swivel finder and housing.... :devil: .....
Nothing comes close to it........ :devil:
