In Topic: Introducing Nauticamís WACP - The Wide Angle Corrector Port: Discuss Here

25 September 2018 - 08:36 AM

^^I'm not sure how to reply with the quote thing but to landlocked, Alex did a big review on it that is somewhere on wetpixel. if you google his name + nauticam wacp it will come up. I've used it a few times and it is one hell of an optic. It is razor sharp at any focal length, you can shoot it at much wider apertures than normal rectilinears (or even fisheyes) and the ability to use the 28-70mm gives unmatched versatility. It also balances extremely well in the water and is so easy to dive with. 

It is definitely an investment, but is worth it IMO. I shoot the RS13mm which is an amazing lens and I was skeptical the wacp would match it in terms of sharpness and IQ but to my eye it definitely does and I'd love to complement the 13mm with the wacp but unfortunately I just can't afford to haha. 

Almost all the shots I have with it are on external drives but I can post them later. Here is one meh shot but with a 100% crop also so you can get an idea of how insanely sharp it is. (athought wetpixel is crushing the quality, not sure I can do anything about that?)

Nikon D4, Nikon 28-70

^The 8-15 should still have the optical edge over the 15mm and the close focus advantage over the 16mm.

Hey Sascha.

 

It is literally the exact same piece of glass just one says Zen and one says Nauticam. The current Nauticam dome though is 18812 :)

In Topic: New TSA rules and underwater strobes

16 November 2017 - 09:26 PM

there seems to be no rhyme or reason at this point as to whether or not they make you unpack everything and seems to be up to the discretion of the TSA agent. flew cross the US recently. didnt have to take anything out except laptop. On the way back literally every piece of equipment had to come out and go in separate bins. if this starts being enforced its going to be a huge PITA :/
