I haven't had that problem. My subsee screws perfectly into both my Nauticam macro ports.

Just to second that. I have used Subseas with the Nauticam flip bracket with no problem too.

I was using a Subsee on my Nauticam port on my NA-EM5 this afternoon and Eleonora was using it on her Nauticam port for the NA-D7000 on the same dive!

thks folks for the valuable info, i have sent my holder in for a replacement. luckily i did not dive with it or else it would have been another issue altogether. i just could not believe that it could not take a Subsee nor an Inon.

Hi Guys, May I ask, does the flip holder work with a flat port?

I just ordered a nauticam housing for my G15 but am trying to decide if I should get their flip holder to use with my subsee diopters or have reefnet make me a new adapter for it instead.  Price should be the same.


I've heard that the nauticam holder screws into the 67mm thread on the port which would mean that I can only use my macro diopters with it.  Is this how it works?


Since the subsee adapter goes around the outside of the port I still have the ability to add or take off other 67mm wet lens as needed while leaving my macro in the flip out position. 

May all your bubbles reach the surface before you do!!!
