Hello guys !

Few week ago, i had the chance to borrow a "new model" subbsee +10 of a friend of mine...
The new model got a screw on 67 in front of the Subsee... (the old model not)

So i wanted to try if it was possible to get into focus with 2 Subsee +10 Stack together...
I have got a Nikon D 7000, with 85mm

Look like it work !
You have to be patient... DOF is very small, but you got a pretty good magnification...

This one is not crop :

This one only a little (about 10%)

Hi Jander4454

Do you mean the 2 subsee +10 stack look similar to 1 Nautiam SMC ??
For Magnification ??

I dont know...
I never tried the SMC...
But to give an exemple here is the picture with only 1 Subsee :

I have read something saying that the SMC have slightly more magnification that a Subsee +10
But same than 2 Subsee +10 stack together... I dont know...

Have you heard about those Aquako 1,2,3,4 ?? (Korean brand)
Apparently Aquako 3 is similar to SMC and Aquako 4 have more than the SMC...
But if you add the Multiplicator to the SMC... That might be really lot more magnification...

I am looking for it cause the 85mm is a good lens, but i am looking to have more magnification without having to buy a 100mm ;)

I was referring to the minimal DOF.
I don't know the Aquako but I'll give them a look.

Hi Yako !!

By the way, i just had a look on your Flikr !!
You got pretty nice pic too ;)

There is a photographer i know from here (Philippines) that will be a Aquako retailer, so i am planning to order him one to give it a try...
There are much cheaper than Subsee or SMC...

He sent me information and test (i have no share, comission or anything else on it... thats just for information ;)

They don't have a european agent but you can buy direct from Aquako. I e-mailed them and they have offered to supply direct to the UK.
