Hello all,

Been away from stills photography for over 6 years now doing video, but recently I got a great condition Nexus housing, from member Sharkman, for my beloved oldie, Nikon D-100. I've been trying to find resources online, information on available lens gears, ports, etc, but haven't found much really. Nexus housings are really great but information so that users can make informed purchases is horrible. Can anybody point me in the direction where I can find some up to date and reliable info and not some badly translated from Japanese bits and pieces?

Thanks,

Have you tried the AnthisNexus guys in Taiwan. They seem to know all about the housings and other bits. Otherwise, Marine Camera in San Diego should be able to help.

Yes, Nexus America is most definitely still in business. Woody Mayhew is the owner and can get you what you need.

Good luck! Nexus went belly-up in Europe because of supply problems. I used my Nexus ports with a Nauticam housing...
