Nauticam adapter ring

31 December 2013 - 11:58 AM

I have 3 Nauticam dslr housings. I usually travel with 2 systems which is really becoming a huge problem with airline baggage restrictions. Especially as more often than not the second system does not even get used it is just a backup in the event of something going wrong with my primary system. I started to look around for a smaller B camera and the NEX 5 seems to be a good small backup. My natural thought way to get a Nauticam housing which I have been very happy with for the NEX . When I started to look into it I discovered that Nauticam DO NOT make an adapter ring to go from there full sized ports to their mirrorless camera mount. I must say I was very surprised. As they seem to make every other type of adapter ring. It would be very handy to be able to double up on ports like the Zen 100 and Zen 170 domes and even possibly some of the macro ports.
I am interested if I am the only one who's has run into this issue. I have to wonder if it is just a lack of demand or whether it is not possible from a design stand point.
