  • hmmm... I am a little confused... as far as I remember the total megapixel number is normally higher than the effective, or? The spec. sheets says that the M6 II has a total megapixel number of ...
  • Replied in Pssst...
    ..very simple... Release new lenses with new bodies... I was at least hoping for a new kit lens, as a patent for a more compact kit had been leaked a while ago... Would just wish that Sigma would ...
  • Thanks! Very nice specs!!!  😊 Might be time to return to Canon!
  • this one might be a little tight (with no waves and good technique, might be possible), but the other one should to the trick...
  • Yes, I bought the “standard” 14-42 R II, which is “ok”, but once you are used to the small pancake lenses, it feels very bulky and is a nuisance when you always have to first “unlock” it to extend ...
  • Yes, this is a well known problem - even if Olympus denies it - the 14-42 ez is just a very sensitive (you call also call it low quality) lens.  I had mine repaired 3 times and just bought a new ...
  • Hi Craig, Thanks for your comments, I do appreciate help on the shark pictures, since I have been not too happy about how they worked out and done already several "final" versions.  However, I must ...
  • Yes, but that should not be an problem that one cannot overcome, or? The Sigma MC-11 adapter works very well, as you can read on the Sony APS-C forum... link to adapter: https://www.sigma-global.co ...
  • have you considered the Sigma 100-400mm for your A6000?  Should give you significantly better pictures than the Oly 75-300 at a very competitive price, that would be my choice for Africa and ...
  • Created photo thread a few from Malapascua
    Went to Malapascua, Philippines,  early June, to see the Thresher Sharks and the other stunning underwater life they have there... Here a few pictures: Thresher passing in the distance ...getting ...
  • just made some suggestions here: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/62892224 Hope that helps... Lars PS:  AOI is the OEM for the original Olympus housing, they started not too long ago to sell ...
  • if you already have the underwater casing for your TG5 then try this: http://www.aoi-uw.com/products/wet-lenses/aoi-flp-06.html price indication: https://www.uwcamerastore.com/aoi-ual-05-underwater ...

    Ok, after some criticism of my PP work, I went back on the weekend and tried it again... Well, not sure if it is much better, but different... (as always with DPR, best being viewed in full size ...
  • hmmm, must have missed that documentary... Well, we were always the second or third boat arriving in the morning, but when we came up we counted 13 big boats!!! Our dive center went out on two of ...
  • Wow! Sounds like a lot of gear to schlep around... :-O I found avoiding to bring a backpack very useful, since in the humid hot environment it is just not very pleasant to have something on your ...
  • Unfortunately, "proper" underwater housings cost a lot. The best bang for the buck is currently Meike or Sea Frogs, as they call themselves now ( https://seafrogs.com.hk/ ).  As you might have ...
  • Thanks, Wolfgang for that comment. Apparently a lot of people commenting on things that they don't understand, you summarized it quite nicely... Just two more remarks for the record: 1.  Your ...
  • Walt, Underwater I normally shoot in manual mode with a floating ISO between 200-800 ISO.  However, after several days of not being too successful, due to the sharks staying away too far and ...
