Back Button Focus for D7000 in Nauticam housing

09 January 2019 - 06:41 PM

I want to use back button focus on my D7000 used in a Nauticam housing.

As far as I can tell so far, all of the buttons I can program are not accessible using the NA-D7000 housing.  I would think there is some kind of work around.

Who knows what it is and how to separate focus from shutter release using this housing and camera?


thanks in advance.




Tokina 10-17 with a dome and 1.4x question

08 January 2019 - 04:53 AM

I have a Sea and Sea 8inch dome I have never used.  It is setup for Nauticam connections and I plan to use it with a D7000 in Nauticam housing.

I plan to use a Tokina 10-17 and a 1.4X for shooting humpback whales at DR soon.

I have no spacer to put between the dome and the housing.  I do have the extended piece for changing focal length.


I normally use a 4 inch dome with the 10-17 and 1.4X but was thinking the larger dome would improve the whale shooting.  Any comments on this?


Will I have any trouble with this setup?


My concern relates to the nodal point change from moving the lens forward but not the dome.


Thanks for any assistance.

Sony RX100 vi in Lightroom 6

25 June 2018 - 02:45 PM

I am using Lightroom 6 and have no plans to move to CC.  The new RX100 vi seems quite interesting and I am considering it for a land travel camera.

Will Lightroom 6 be able to read the RAW images or will I have issues?

Or is it too early to know.




Goby eating a blenny

14 May 2018 - 09:12 AM

Just back from Turks and Caicos.  Caught a Spotlight Goby (Gobiosoma louisae) eating a blenny or smaller goby.  It snatched it off a sponge and worked to escape with it.

See the series of photos of it at my website link below..


Interested in comments.


The first photo shows the tail sticking out of the side of the goby's mouth.  Later photos show the head sticking out.



Blenny from Sea of Cortez

07 February 2018 - 07:34 PM

I found this blenny in the islands in the sea of cortex.  I do not see them in my Reef Fish book for that region.

Any idea what they might be?

Note the blue spot with ring around it near the base of the tale in the second photo.  They both have it.


Not saying they are rare but they are hard to find unless they move a bit.
