Congrats Vladimir on the pictures!

Your second wreck picture and the ray are just fantastic!

Great to see your split with 4 inch dome too :-)

 

And that's why i keep hoping (and asking) for Nauticam to offer hand-straps on their DSLR housings, just like Subal does, or just like Nauticam themselves do on their Mirorless housing, see this item which i had on my mirorless housing:

I think it would take your hand pain away, and provide the usual benefits of hand-straps.

 

I take also this opportunity to ask if anyone knows why their is some sort of buckle/shackle on the steel thing which hold the right handle of the Nauticam housing together with the main housing body, see the picture attached.

Despite attaching a hand-strap, i can't think of other possible needs?

I am happy to say my prayers apparently got heard: you can find on Nauticam dealers what seems to be a new hand strap compatible with some housings, including the D500 one!! It goes by:

Hand Strap for 28113 Large Handles (for NA-1DXII, D500, D5, 80D)

I misunderstood u but tried it today , i could pull of a shot using only my right hand  but wouldn't want to do a couple after one another, my hand started shaking because of the awkward grip so if your looking at shooting one-handed that would be a problem.

In Topic: Nikon DF - Why is it not talked about?

I can't help wondering why Subal is announcing a housing for this camera now (3 years later)

WooooooooooooW!!!!

I am surprised nobody commented on your website yet, because i took a look and found a number of gorgeous pictures, congrats!

OK, i was initially more interested in how your website itself rendered (as i am looking forward to build mine), but i couldn't help being caught by some picutres.

 

The barracuda dentists is very inspiring, i like the fact that the barra appears very dark, whereas the cleaning fishes are well lit, same as the barra's teeths :) It would have been even slightly better if the barra had been a bit higher in the frame, IMHO, but already an excellent photo.

My attention got caught by some of your travel photography which are beautiful too.

Bottom line is that i'll take proper time to watch your pictures at home :)

 

One thing i like a lot is the fact that you have only a few pictures, but telling stories on each. I like the way photos titiles appear over the picture in case of mouseover (or tap on iPhone).

 

If i could suggest something to improve for mobile navigation (at least on my iPhone 5s), it's the rendering of text on your homepage: for some reason the paragraphs are displayed very narrow, not using the width of the screen, so it's a bit cumbersome to scroll down. Same on your underwater photo gallery: the title and gear description appear too very narrow, which again requires you to scroll down to see the pictures. Hope this is easy to fix?

 

Last but not least, may i ask how you built your website? Have you used any particular solution such as Photoshelter or others?

 

cheers

Hi Martin,

 

Thanks for sharing your website, i enjoyed browsing it on my laptop, and you have some very nice pictures!

However I tried it a bit on my iPhone and, although the design is responsive, I found the photos were a bit small, and I wanted to switch to full screen mode, just like I could on my laptop, when watching your Wakatobi album.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find this full screen button on my iPhone, is it something you could setup, or is it not offered at all by Photoshelter?

 

Cheers

Nicolas
