yes fibre optics will be possible with the Subal D500 housing via some kind of an TTL-converter acording to Mr Karl. This is also 1 reason why I could make the switch to Subal ( I willbe able to use my Inon strobes again without having to buy expensive Synchron cords for S6 flash sockets). It will also be possible tuse my Seacamports with the Subalhousing.
I am thinking of going back to DX ( the comming nikon d500). I am now shooting a Nikon d800e but am not satisfied with the sharpness of the pictures. The heavy 9" dome is also a problem for travelling.
So lenses I will be shooting are the nikon 10.5 FE, Nikon 16mm FE lenses.The Nikon 10-24mm or nikon 12-24 mm ( wich will be better ?) reticular.Domeport Seacam superdome 9" or Subal 8" FE dome:
I visit the Boot in Düsseldorf yesterday and spoke with Subal's owner Mr. Harald Karl. I was very surprised on how positive Subalhousings have incorperated new and very practical things ( domeport and extensionrings Lock, getting the ISO button on the right place on the housings for the D5 and D500). Seacam isn't so inovative.Mr Karl told me that a new housing for the Nikon D500 will probebly on the market in May.
