Hi guys,


I am looking for the right set up for wide angle shooting with my Sony a6300. It's in a Meikon / Sea Frogs Salted Line Housing.


I have the following set up on my mind:


  • Sony 16-50mm kit lens (full control with zoom and autofocus) with a wide angle wet lens.
  • Sony 16 or 20mm pancake with wide angle or fish eye converter with 4" Dome Port.
  • Sigma 19mm (with autofocus) and a wide angle wet lens.
  • Samyang 8mm (can't use the aperture and focus inside the housing) with 4" Dome Port
  • Samyang 12mm (same, no aperture, no focus control) with 4" Dome Port

I might be able to 3D print a ring to use at least the aperture of the Samyangs in the housing.



Which one would / do you use and why? Or do you have other ideas for me? 



Thank for your help! :)

Hi Ricardo,


if you'd like to start shooting wa I'd go for a Sony pancake with converter. 


Not having focus control is not nice, and I am not a big fun of custom focus gear, I've tried it myself and had bad results.
