Shogun follow-up dive pics...plus a couple of critters

Great crown...great dial visibility. Still not finding a problem with this watch. For a change I zeroed the bezel for these shots. To all those OCD guys out there, I was thinking of you! :mrgreen:

As always, you have started my day with fantastic pics. Bravo!

I like pic #4 and the way you are able to capture the high polish outline on the hands and markers. Brilliant.

This fishies are nice too.

BTW: we know you dive and the bezel should be set wherever the fuck you want it set at.

The finish on the markers and hands really is superb.

Yeah...its gotten a bit more pro. Panasonic LX-5 shooting on manual in RAW format. The last shots were done at F8.0 @ 1/2500sec with dual Sea&Sea YS-1 strobes at running at 25% illumination. The 10Bar dual-seal housing is black aluminum with a 1cm thick acrylic back and is individually certified to 100m (+25%). It accepts any 67mm wet lens on the front lens port.

These strobes (flashes) are monsters. Their output on even half-power (with diffusers) completely overwhelms the camera. Because they are basically just ticking over the batteries last forever.

The kit rides on an Ikelite tray and adjustable arms. The focus light is an adjustable LED dive torch secured by an adapter to the camera housing. The whole thing is slightly negatively buoyant due to the tray, arms and torch (the strobes are slightly buoyant and the camera-in-housing is neutral). The foam covers on the strobes are my own mod to aid buoyancy

That is a great setup. I like the way you have the lighting rigged, gives you a great deal of flexibility. You really have a great eye and the tech expertise to capture your vision; your pics are awesome man.
