Nikon 1 aw1
Posted 30 March 2014 - 11:07 PM
there any newer quality options around the same price I should consider or my other thought is to dry bag a cheap land flash .
My other thought is to increase the stock depth limit on the aw1 of 15 metres by also dry bagging it - if the bag does leak slightly the water should only slosh around harmlessly . A catostrophic flood would be a different matter . Any thoughts ?

i shoot with nikon 1 j3 and nikon wpn2 housing.
the nikon 1 series are really good for underwater use!
it is the only camera that i know that can take a FULL resolution photo WHILE you are recording, so you can get both those precious underwater videos and photos!
now for the flas, why don't you buy a sea and sea velcro flash adapter? you can then tape it to the AW and connect it to another ysd1.
ysd1 and nikon 1 is great as they are easy, versatile, and have optical TLL !
how is your aw? i think the problem with aw is placement of the flash. how deep can you go with that without issues?

I have a sony tx 30, depht limit 5 meters, but i took it on MANY dives, and it usually works until 20 meters. More than that, the buttons does not work.
The tx 30 takes great videos and photos underwater! In my opinion, it is a lot better than go pro ( i have a go pro), more versatile, fast shutter, and it allow you to see what you are shooting.
I carry the tx30 as my backup dive camera.
So have you dare to tried to test the limits of your nikon aw?
