In Topic: GS for Aquatica?

Yesterday, 08:43 PM

Blibecap, Stewart and Okuma - thanks very much for your replies.

 

The background to my question is that I have had a long line of Subal housings over the years and have all the necessary ports, extension rings, zoom gears that I need. I would now like to house my Canon 70D camera but Subal does not have a housing for it. So I am thinking Nauticam or Aquatica - both of these offer port adaptors for Subal so at least I will be able to use my Subal ports and extensions. Hence also looking at using an existing viewfinder and zoom rings.

 

I suspect the Subal GS viewfinder is not going to fit without an adaptor - seems like Blibecap has the solution. Stewart, the GS fits in 35mm opening in the housing and needs about 7mm thickness for the 2 O-rings to seat. My Subal zoom gears have an outer diameter of 90mm. If you could check those against the Aquatica counterparts I would be very grateful.

 

If the viewfinder doesn't work out I will contact you Blibecap about the adapter and if the zoom gears don't match I will look at Okuma's solution.

 

Thanks guys

Andre

That's great advice - thanks Liz! I am just wondering if they will give me the scuba divers AND Destinations extra allowances??

Fly Qantas and prepay for the extra baggage.

 

Yes thanks but as mentioned that sets you back $52 for every 5kg overweight ( maybe this is new? ) so I am estimating about $300 overweight charges each way. So just seeing if there is some alternative. Has anybody got any recent experience with Air Nuigini ?  Also wondering if carry on limits are strictly enforced out of Cairns?

We really enjoyed Cabo Pulmo. Besides the jacks we had regular bullshark sightings. The wale shark experience in La Paz  is amazing  as well,

Don I don't think you will be disappointed! You are basically going to have a camera with 7D like image quality and autofocus performance but with the added bonus of video which is way more user friendly.

I got mine primarily as an upgrade for sports and wildlife photography but I must say the Nauticam housing looks very tempting....
