Confused on a few things Aquatica- extension rings and lens gears
Posted 28 August 2012 - 04:05 PM
what is the deal with all the different lengths available? and can mine be used for a Nikon 16-35mm zoom lens and if not which of the other two listed can be?
Second confusion- have the Aquatica gears undergone a number change or is there a new line of gears for Type 4 Nikon cameras- they seem to have the same numbers as the older gears with the first number changed- for example the 18722 gear that I have has been replaced in the newer catalog as 48722. Are these new gears or just changes in the numbers and the old gears that I have still work?
I have a D800 housing on order and really need to know what all I have to update so any help is appreciated in advance

Not sure about the extension rings. You may want to do some trial and error local dives to sort out what works with what if it isn't too inconvienient for you.

As for the extension, the main thing to be concerned about is vignetting at 16mm. Since your current port is longer than what Aquatica lists for the 18458 then best way is to test it. If you don't get vignetting then the extension will work, not optimally as it would having the correct extension but at least you get your image. You may want to check your image corners for smearing as well.
I'd suggest asking a Moderator to move this to the DSLR section of the forum as well.
