#372730 WTB: mirrorless camera and underwater setup

Posted by jander4454 on 18 April 2016 - 09:55 AM

Hello,

 

I have a Sony NEX-5 body, Nauticam housing and tray that I could offer you if that set-up would interest. I have upgraded recently to Sony A6000 but had several happy and trouble free years with the NEX-5 set up. It is sitting on a shelf and I am sure we could agree a suitable price.

 

Cheers

 

Jim A

I've been using the Nauticam housing and flexitray without adapter for over 18 months and have no problems in either cold or warm water on over 400 dives

#361002 +5 or +10 diopter ? with sony A6000 16-50mm kit lens ?

I have recently purchased the Nauticam CMC-1.
This is a superb lens for your set-up if you want super macro but be warned it has a very shallow depth of field even at the smallest aperture.

I agree with Oceanshutter.
I too have the +5 and +10. I only use the +10 and the 5 sits on a shelf at home. I've given up carrying it about because I never use it.

A good focus light is essential I use a Sola 1200.




#352247 Zeiss Touit 2.8/50M for Sony E-Mount

Posted by jander4454 on 03 September 2014 - 07:15 AM

Posted here on 18 August, delivered to Zeiss 21 August, received back to me 1 September so reasonable turnround. Apparently Zeiss are unable to refund my postage costs!
They have offered a lens cleaning kit and UV lens filter in lieu - but only after a lot of complaining.

I received my lens back this am from Zeiss.
It has been upgraded and appears to be working properly - at last and not even an apology!
I'm still awaiting the refund of my not inconsiderable costs in returning the lens to Zeiss in Germany from the UK.

I can confirm I also have the same problem with the Zeiss Touit 50 macro on my Sony a6000 - I am not happy.

Given the length of time it has taken Zeiss to produce this lens it is unacceptable that such a simple flaw was not detected.

Kelpfish,

 

I got mine exactly as you describe from Nauticam UK - and they work just fine with thick gloves!

I think the nudi is an undescribed Elysia sp.




#339023 Adapter for combining Nauticam compact 30 port and subsee +10

Posted by jander4454 on 05 November 2013 - 02:52 AM

Nauticam UK supply an adapter that allows the 67mm dia lenses to be fitted to my Flat Port 72. It is push fit onto the front of the port - I don't know the dia. of the Compact 30 but I guess your local Nauticam dealer could advise.
