    Phase P65+ underwater?

    Phase One always advertises that its MFDBs are tested tough in the field. So I decided to dunk my P65+ underwater to take a shot of these starfish...
    For some reason I can't get my MFDB to turn on anymore.... (*just kidding* Doug!)

    Just got back from Olympic National Park on the coast side. Wet and drizzling. Quiet and beautiful there. Image is taken in a tidal pool during negative tide. It was so wet that the camera, back, and lens were wet and misted over. I kept shooting---and liked the hazy soft effect imparted on this image, almost as if I were underwater....

    Phase 645AF, Phase P65+, Hartblei 45 t/s super rotator (yes---the Hartblei!) and the Cube!

    Everything worked well. The Cube made leveling disgustingly fast and easy...

    Amazing to think how much you spent to take that crappy shot.

    ...which is why it's not in the keeper pile, but in the "just-for-fun or blog pile."

    Hey, I see all the ads concerning ruggedness, but I guess I am too chicken to try it.

    Phase one Underwater :-) Lol i really have serious thinking one day to put a MF system underwater as i shoot a lot models underwater but the costs are way way to high and high isos still suck. 10000 Euros for just a underwater housing is madness.

    if he hadn't told us it's underwater I would have sworn the look of the capture comes from the 45 Hartblei :-)
