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.

It's been a few mints since the last post and am wondering if anyone has compared the aquako with the saga +15. I was going to buy the saga at DEMA but didnt get a chance to go back to their booth before leaving. The aquako III looks interesting so a, now trying to get more info about it. My next trip is in march so would like to get something by then. Like the nauticam lens but it is just too expensive for me right now.
May all your bubbles reach the surface before you do!!!

Has anyone compared the saga +15 with the aquako III..... Both are sort of comparable in price and I need to pick up another lens by march.
Are there any dealers for the aquako in the US?
