I’m looking for a housing and domeport for my Zeiss 2.8/15mm ZF.2 and 2.8/21 ZF.2 lenses. They will be used with a Nikon D800E.
Regarding my background: I have 25 years of experience in landscape and macro photography, but absolutely no experience in underwater photography and diving (just some experience in snorkeling). You can find some of my work on my website wild-places.com.
Therefore I need some help and recommendations regarding the right equipment for shooting in and under water.
My highest priority is optical quality of the dome port (meaning highest possible image quality especially corner sharpness).
The system will be used over- and underwater and for half-half shots, mainly with natural light. I will not go deeper than 2-3 m (either standing in the water, shooting from above the water or snorkeling, no diving).
Since the dome port is most important for IQ I will buy whatever housing will fit the best dome port (and of course my D800E). From the information I found on the internet the Nauticam and Seacam housings sounds interesting, but I’m open for any other suggestions.
The biggest problem with the Zeiss 15mm lens is the large diameter of 103mm. So far I’ve not found a single domeport suitable for this lens.
If it’s just not possible to get one, I would at least like to get the best one for the 21mm Zeiss lens.
Any ideas, comments, recommendations?
