That dive site looks amazing. How deep is it? And what dive centre did you use?

In Topic: Zen/Nauticam 230mm glass dome depth rating?

Just off the phone with Alex T, and he informed me the nauticam 230mm is rated to 60m.  Typo on one of their sites.  Still intersted to hear what the Zen is rated to.

Hi Fabian

The 16-35 performs much better u/w (based on other peoples feedback).  I have the 16-35, and its great.  I believe Alex Mustard has further informtion on the forum.  You need a large dome 230mm+, a large extension (I use 80mm on S&S housing) and should keep it stopped down to reduce soft corners.



In Topic: Best solution for a balanced macro rig

20 June 2015 - 12:13 PM

Weighed my macro rig (d800 s&s housing, port, 2 x 5" ike arms, 2 x 8" ul float arms, focus light, 2 z240s and nauticam smc) last night - 1700g in fresh water.
W/a set up with sigma 15mm and 10" s&s dome is about -650g
Decided to go for a Stix float ring and 2 x nauticam carbon fibre 150 x 90mm. Went with the nauticam arms as I can replace the 5" ike arms for w/a as they can handle the depths of up to 100m.
