Sony A7, Zeiss 24-70mm, Nauticam 180mm Dome Port PICs

21 June 2014 - 06:36 AM

Viz was poor but took out the Zeiss 24-70mm behind the Nauticam 180mm Dome.  Autofocus actually worked fairly well even in low light with no focus light. The following photos have not been sharpened in any manner, just a little adjustment for exposure and color.  With a minimum focus length of over a 1' not going to be a good all around lens but may be useful for fish portrait, sharks, etc.  Useful for med - med/wide in tropical waters.

 

Shots taken at the 24mm range than 70mm for comparison.  Pics taken from just over 3 feet away, max.  Again not great shots but for those interested in this lens here you go.


Raja Ampat, Indonesia from the Luxury Liveaboard, Arenui

16 June 2014 - 03:02 PM

We love Raja and thought we would try the 14day Arenui trip.  Great itinerary as you hit all the major spots.  Best of all not only did we have an incredible experience with a manta, for the first time we dove with Giant Mantas!!!
