Dome for Sigma 10-20mm f:4-5.6 in NA-7D housing
Posted 28 April 2012 - 11:03 AM
Im about to purchase a Nauticam NA-7D for my Canon 7d, and I will start out getting a dome for my Sigma 10-20mm WA lens. Trying to stay away from super-expensive options, Im considering getting a Nauticam 6"or 8.5" acrylic dome - anybody have any experience or comments on these combinations? Or alternative options within a similar price range?
Im leaning towards the 8.5" because I´d like doing some split shots - and I guess its better than the 6" for that.
Any comment are appreciated :-)

I like the 8.5" dome but I have noticed that it picks up minor scratches on the outer edges of the dome which tend to hold on to air bubbles. I now make a regular habit of swiping my hand around the dome to get rid of any bubbles but I lost several good shots from a dive because I hadn't noticed them when looking at the pics in the LCD screen and only saw them later in post-processing.
