Gotta love the transmission of images instantaneously to the laptop! Don’t forget to wash the chlorine off after a days work, that would probably ruin the casing. Cool article, thanks!

Can you explain the photo, credited to you, located at http://blogs.reuters.com/oddly-enough/fi les/2008/11/track-guard-300.jpg? The caption reads “A German police officer guards the railway track in Lueneburg where a train transporting Castor nuclear waste containers will travel later in the night to the northern German town of Dannenberg, November 9, 2008. REUTERS/Wolfgang Rattay”

But clearly, the photograph is not of a German police officer, but of a model train track with a plastic figure.

I’m curious about the story behind this story…

If so: it has been taken with a hand-held 400mm lens with a 1/15 of a second shutter speed on 200 ASA at f8 or so. Hope that helps. Cheers Wolfgang

I am more than happy to clarify this.
As per earlier, the Canon transmitter can not be used in wireless mode.
Due to the density of water – no matter if it is just two inch deep – wireless transmission quits working. The unit has to be used in wire-mode in order to work from the pool.
The other big issue to be solved with Canon’s Mark 2 is the firewire signal that comes from the camera. Unfortunately fireware does not travel over more than approx. 1.2m of cable length. Therefore the unit that “translates” firewire into normal “LAN-language” has to stay close to the camera. In my underwater setup a 0.5m long custom-made waterproof firewire cable goes from the camera housing to the second housing that contains Canon’s WFTE-1 transmission unit. The transferred image data is then filed over the second cable – the red one in the picture – to the ftp server. Previously mentioned – it is a specially treated regular CAT-5-LAN cable. Therefore we can view, acquire and edit the images from underwater within seconds after they have been taken. Cheers Wolfgang
