In Topic: Nauticam ttl converter for d500 housing

Hi Yes - it has a manual and TTL switch on the circuit board. Although mu understanding is that by using manual mode on the strobe itself it overrides it anyway. In my case the issue may have been strobe related but won;t be sure until I replace both strobes in the future. I am holding off until Inon decide if and when their new model will release and the retras have had more feedback! Best of luck

So when you mentioned on a dive that you had the problem and shutter release was locked up. Did you change your strobes back to manual during that dive? I just want to make sure that if TTL misbehaved, at least going back to manual would be a good back up. However, if the board decided to act up and there was no way to get around it while on a dive, may be it is not worth bothering with it, I guess.

Hmm.. a bit of a bummer as I also just ordered the ttl board. If you have the ttl board installed, can you reverted back to manual only without having to switch the board?

I have D850 since its launch to replace my D810 and just came back from a trip to Indonesia with my Nauticam D850 housing.

This is the first FF setup underwater for me though as my last rig was D7100. Worked pretty well but I still need to get a bit more

familiarized with changing from aps-c to FF. Macro is a bit of a pain as my working distance is completely changed and I will need to

change my domeport from 200mm (worked well with my 10-17, 16-35 with apsc camera) to 230mm. AF is better which is not surprising. The new natural light wb works really well with Inon strobes and wb calibration against my white fin at depth up to 10m

is very convenient and more accurate than with my d7100. May be because of bigger dof issue, I never had to adjust my AF fine tune on D7100 with my 105/2.8 VR but with d850, AF fine tune is a must. Luckily auto fine tune feature is very handy. A bit annoying that at usual macro distance, it was +7 but at further distance 3-5m, it was like -13. But for underwater stuff, it does not matter since I would be using it at near minimum focusing distance anyhow.
