So, It seems like I chose the wrong approach, The mod looks very clean and nice, and the MAL-1 fits
great.BUT, it is too small, the big distance from the fibers mad it too weak (I think, still have to investigate) but the flash won't fire...
I have a different approach now, I will take a LED FLASH (like the one from the mobile) and try to make it work from the camera.
Uploading the mod MAL-1 pictures.

There is something like this already... But its a constant led version.

In Topic: Housing protection Nauticam

Here in Florida, whenever we go out, we bring cooler bag, and tell the crew member to put our camera back to our own bag (never put into the the rinse tank of the boat). The crew members are good at that and that's why they get tips. Depends on your camera size, I just use cooler bag from regular sport store, but the concept of using cooler bag as protection is catching up so not they sell "special" camera bag..... take a look:

Can u put fresh water in the cooler bag? And it not leak as the day pass?

Nauticam has updated the Port system chart for their housing for A7rii and A9 in September this year.
for the Sony 16-35 f/4, the 180mm dome port (Nauticam #18809) ist still in the chart but now, the 230mm dome port (Nauticam #18812) is now "most optimized dome port...

Most important question : how do you do your own focusing gear?

3d printing... I have not 'dive' into making one.. as it's an option not a must since I already have a 16-35

Hi Wolf Eel
Using the 16-35 f4, initially with the "previously" recommended 180mm Dome Port. I have changed it to the 230mm Dome port, and corner sharpness has dramatically improved.
Hence i am not sure investing 2000$ in the 2.8 G version is worth it... And i mostly shoot WA between f8 and f14...
That being said, (and i mentioned "previously") Nauticam has updated the dome/lens chart last September. See on their website. They now recommend as best optin the 230 Dome port, yet, the 180 is still on the chart.
Re the manual lens : what kind of focus gear do you use? Nauticam does not list any focusing gear for manual lens...
Is there any "universal" gear that one can use?

230mm dome is for the Canon 16-35? The Sony ones are still 180mm recommend...

Manual lens... I am making my own... Or I will shoot infinity.. heheh.. have yet to try underwater...

Oh!! U are right... Base on the chart...it has changed!! The web 'find a port' is not updated!!!
