In Topic: Nauticam vacuum and leak - red light after startup

09 November 2018 - 01:36 AM

Hi String,

 

I see three possible sources for the failure:

 

1.: Battery

2.: "Sensor" itself

3.: Faulty electronics

 

I have painfull experience with this problem too. In my case it was "2.": just clipped off the "sensor" (just two pieces of metal that, for some unknown reason, react very sensitive to moisture and gave routinely false alarm). Now my "sensor" is just the two endings of the clipped copper-wire: also reacts to moisture but much less sensitive...

Part II: with Kenko 1.4x teleconverter

 

With the additional Kenko 1.4x teleconverter the focal length range is changed to 11mm - 21mm. The DAV range is 115o – 60o (For comparison 115o DAV are provided by a 7mm rectilinear lens and 60o DAV by 19mm). An additional 20mm N120 extension and a longer extension collar for the zoomgear are required also.

Before I had the Canon FE, my favorite WA lens was the Zuiko 8mm FE, but because of the very wide angle, I used the Pana 7-14mm more often. Both lenses remain unused since I have the Canon 8-15mm (but are still favorites of mine on the surface).

 

I also want to mention that I have a Tokina 10-17mm FE for sale (even with gratis zoomgear extension for MFT users that want to use the lens with 1x Metabones adapter instead of the 0.71x speedbooster). It gives similar results with the combination above, but I do not need it any more:

In Topic: Canon 8-15mm F4 1.4 teleconverter with minidome

Hi Chris,

 

I am using the Canon 8-15mm with 1.4x Kenko Telekonverter, Nauticam 140mm dome with OM-EM5II, 1x Metabones adapter in Nauticam housing. With MFT sensors, the combination covers the angle(s) of view, similar to e.g. a rectilinear 7-14mm (115o - 75o), just wider (115o - 60o).  The results are very good. I do not have a public gallery, but see here a sample image:

When I have time, I will write a separate post on this topic...
