In Topic: I need advice about wet lenses for my NA-RX100IV housing. (please advise)

feed back from a guy 


Hi John,

Both the CMC-1 and SMC are diopters, so in general, they would both work with compacts and DSLR's alike.
However, the CMC-1 was specifically optimized and tested with compact and MIL cameras, whereas the SMC was specifically designed for the 105mm and 100mm lenses (Nikon and Canon respectively), on both cropped and FF  sensors.
I recommend trying out your D500 with 105mm + CMC-1 and see if you're happy with the results.
If you are, no need to upgrade.
I will actually be testing the same combination myself in a couple of weeks in Cozumel - D500 + 105mm + CMC-1. I'll let you know how it goes!

Best Regards,

Ran Mor

Dear Great Hammerhead 


I don't know what you call the horizontal line with a zero in the middle that I use for manuel exposure insights


but on the far right side  of that bar I find the letters BKT and always getting 3 clicks when in CH mode I'm now thinking


it must be for Bracketing or I'm going to search for where this setting might be , good find Hammerhead :) , its got to be that


Well , where is Bracketing Sequence please ? 


under E for Bracketing Flash , i have no asterisk showing 




E5 modeling flash    ON 

E 6 Flash/speed or    1rst option with 3 little icons ( flash, plus sign , clock sign

E7  N icon in a box

I've also come to the conclusion that shooting one thing at a time is a preferable approach. And i upgraded from the Sony RX 11 to the Nikon D500 . Can't seem to find a buyer for my one year old compact system .


What I would like to know is if I can expect the Nauticam  CMC-1 to work on the D500 with a 105mm lens . It fits just fine :) 

but is designed for compact / mirrorless as opposed to the Nauticam Super Macro Lens which is described as a wet macro lens 

for full framed cameras. 


I know that i can try and see what happens but I'm also curious as to what to expect and wanting to hear that the results will be 

negligible  , in any case learning to capture focus on this lens is a challenge and keeps it all fun , I like it , around Cebu is where i'm



thanks for any feed back

Hello Mr. Diven Golf or to any one who may have a clue 

I just got my D500 set up in the Nauticam housing and also set up for Back Button Focus 
( just migrated from a Compact) . This is besides the point however and my issue is when i put the camera in the high speed mode it will only click three "shots" and then stops . Before I could get constant "shutter release" , clicking and i feel i have messed with the settings to the extent i've "messed something up". 
The Three Shot part in High Speed mode is consistent  in and out of the housing and with a 50 or a 105 lens 
I could reset them all but what i tried instead was to go to Shooting and Custom Menu B ,
wouldn't this be the same as a reset . 

I've tried it in release mode only rather than focus and release or release and focus with no luck  Is there some menu item where i should check . 

Any ideas or places to inquire , thanks
