NIKON Coolpix 5100

Post Number:#1  Postby mnim821 » Sat Sep 09, 2006 11:05 pm

Hullo ppl,

Anyone here has any experience using this model underwater? I just picked up underwater photography and still struggling using it. :( >:(.  Demon, ur using a 4600 rite? Do you know how can I manually adjust the shutter speed? Cari sana sini tapi tak dapat jumpa daa. Whenever I take photos of corals, nudis or fishes on sandy bottom, the photos would be over-exposed or too much light (betul ka?). Also, the colours dont appear to be rich & sharp. Appreciate some pointers from all sifus out there.

Helo ppl,

I think most compact cameras (ranging from RM1g to Rm2gs) would give about the same quality pics. Tho some may give better than others sometimes.

I myself own a dive camera (Olympus C770). The pics are usually fairly good and the colors are quite vibrant. But if the pics get screwed up, the camera usually comes with the software to repair em. So kasi edit aja la.

But I think the worse compact camera for uwater would be those from sony (my opinion ok, duno wether they have come wit sumthin to deal with dat). As it lags, so the best pics that you can take would only be the corals, nudis and the best, the gamat hahaha.

Encik

aku guna nikon 4200. mengenai over exposed tu ko boleh adjust sebenarnya tapi aku nak terangkan kat ko dalam nie mmg la tak reti sebab nanti dengan aku sekali keliru...bak kata kengkawan yang lain,apa kata satu hari nanti ko turun utk TTS,then bawak kamera.

Cara teknikal utk baiki masalah underwater color tempreture biasanya aku gunakan manual white balance...kat kamera tu ada function tuh,tapi kalau tak boleh jugak bawak filter kaler oren...sapa yang nak filter tu bagi nama...kat tempat aku ni melambak-lambak ada benda tu..tapi tak la secanggih macam yg beli kat kedai...aku guna lighting color gel utk selesaikan masalah tu dan ianya berkesan(setakat ni).

so sehingga kita TTs satu hari nanti...
