In Topic: Back Button Focus for D7000 in Nauticam housing

10 January 2019 - 04:14 PM

The results of having too many things going at once and not enough detail in them.

The D7000 does have access to the AEl/AFL button.

So clearly, I was wrong.

Commentator, please just delete this entire topic.  I do not want to mislead others in the future.


In Topic: Back Button Focus for D7000 in Nauticam housing

Kraken,

Thank you for the attempt to help.  My problem is that the Nauticam NA-D7000 housing does not appear to allow me access to ANY assignable button on the camera when the camera is in the housing.

So while I know how to set the AE-L button, I cannot access it underwater.  If I set it before putting the camera in the housing, I could never focus underwater.

 

I am hoping I am wrong and overlooked something or there is someway around this issue.  Thus the plea for assistance.

Thanks for the information.

Based on what I have and need, looks like I will be using the mini-dome for this trip.

I have the extension needed for it with the 1.4X but not for the 8" dome.  My gear is a mix of Nexus with Nauticam housing due to past housings owned.

 

I posted a question regarding Back Button Focus in the Shooting Technique section.  I hope you will answer there if you have help for my problem posted there.

If you look at the work of most u/w photographers, there will be few taking photos of small fast fish.  As you have learned, its not easy.

If you can find a place the fish like to be or dart past often, you might manually focus on that spot and snap a photo when a fish is arriving.  This can work with salt water fish.  I have no experience with fresh water fish.

Faster focusing can often be reached using a focus light.  Focus lights do not have to be over expensive or large but you can spend a lot, just as with most gear.

Your housing has a cold shoe for connecting lighting so you could buy the fittings needed to connect a focus light at that location.

Here is some information below at the link.  Search this site for 'focus' + 'light'
