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!
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
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 .
