Topics I've Started

Tamron 17-35mm f/2.8-4 Di OSD lens (Model A037)

04 September 2018 - 09:16 AM

I know this lens just came out but I was curious if anyone has tried one in the water yet or plans to soon.  It seems like it could potentially be a cost effective alternative to the popular Nikon 16-35mm f/4.  The Nikon minimum focus distance is 0.29m,  the Tamron website says this lenses minimum focus distance is 0.28m.

 

Has anyone figured out how much extension ring would be needed on a Nauticam housing with this lens yet?  I might try to rent one soon if Borrow Lenses or Lens Rentals gets one in their fleet.

Canon G7X + Nauticam NA-G7X Housing + Accessories

 

I am a little sad to part with this camera as I have made many great images (a majority of the shots on https://uw.jonjake.com/) with it but I just upgraded to a DSLR and it no longer gets used.  I hope it can find a new owner who loves it as much as I have the last 2 years! This camera/housing has been in the water quite a few times but it still works great and takes great images. The ports have some very minor scratches and staining but I have never noticed either in any images. The window for viewing the camera LCD has some scratches on it, Backscatter is quoting a replacement right now and I would happily split the cost of the replacement with the buyer if they want it.

 

Here is what is included:

  • Canon G7X Camera 
  • 2x Extra Canon NB-13L Batteries  (3 batteries total)
  • Nauticam NA-G7X Housing (including N50 standard port, spare o-rings, flash plugs, grease)
  • Nauticam M14 Vacuum Valve (and pump)
  • Nauticam Flexitray II (Left Handle + Right Handle + Tray + Remote Shutter Release)
  • 2x Naticam Strobe Ball for Flexitray
  • Nauticam N50 Short Port
  • I have all the original boxes and will include those if you want them.

$1300 USD + Shipping (or local pickup).   Payment via PayPal. Everything was ~$2500 new less than 2 years ago. 

 

Please let me know if you have questions or want to see additional pictures.

Belize - Looking for Reccomendations

29 November 2017 - 07:16 AM

I will be going to Belize for a week in January and staying in San Pedro on Ambergris Caye.  I dove in Belize many years ago before I was into underwater photography but don't remember who that was with.    Does anyone have recommended dive operators in this area?  

 

Here is what I am most interested in:

- Turneffe Atoll

- Shark Ray Alley

- Mangroves (if people anyone will do it, I know they have had some crocodile problems)

- Lighthouse Reef/Blue Hole (Is this worth doing?)

- Local dive sites near San Pedro.

 

I am mostly interested in shooting wide angle but would also do 1 or 2 days of macro.  Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

 

Best Regards,
