In Topic: Nauticam CMC-1

25 March 2017 - 03:35 PM


hello fellas 


I've just migrated to the Nikon D 500 with a Nauticam Housing from a Sony RX 100 on a Recsea , just got it put together,

i live in Cebu City PH. 


I am under the impression that Nauticam CMC-1 is only for compact and mirrorless cameras . Will this work , may I use it with 

the new package, i've a 105 mm micro lens and gonna try but not sure what to expect. 


Can't find a buyer for the compact rig and wondering if i have to sacrifice this lens/diopter as well to re-sell 


, the recommended one is Nauti Super Macro Converter from what I gather .


thanks john




My other half is using the CMC-1 on a Nauticam/D500/60mm Macro setup with excellent results.

What is the part number? Is it for a DSLR or M43?

It's possible that one of the strobes is not performing properly. If you swap the strobes, do the symptoms reverse? A month ago, one of the members of our photo club gave a talk on strobe positioning. He described testing the strobes to make sure they were delivering the full guide number power. He'd had experiences where brand new strobes were not. Using a light meter, set strobe on full power 3 feet from a wall. Fire the strobe and measure the reflected light. With a GN of 24 divided by 3 feet, should read f/8. I've probably over simplified it, as I don't have a light meter. But hopefully, you get the idea.
