In Topic: Nauticam 45 viewfinder wobble?

Yesterday, 01:50 AM

Hi Akoni

It's funny cause I have the straight viewfinder that kind of moves. Not exactly a wobble but feels kind of loose. Although having said this have never had a leak.

With the 7D, I’d turn off the half-shutter press off so you are focusing on the rear button, find a suitable subject, no current or swell, and a place where you can put a sand spike to rest the housing on. Use the rear lever to focus to the magnification you want approx then release. Using the sand spike, gradually ease the housing forwards and backwards until you see the subject in focus and then pull the shutter. Take lots of shots as the DoF is very minimal especially as you increase to 1:1 on the lens. Think about the out of focus areas and how they will appear in the image. Breathe and work within depths that you are very comfortable with. Spend 30 minutes with a subject.

Danke Alex, Much appreciated.

Yes The port will Fit through the bars. But be extremely careful as they will have about 8 people in the cage together depending on whose services you are using. Try and get in first or last so that you are in one of the corners. I used a small dome while i was there. Try and get your shots early as after a while due to bait being thrown in the water can be full of particles. Good Luck and have fun :-) 

 

Attaching a few pics. Not the best but it was great fun.
