In Topic: Zen minidome for Aquatica - advice required

20 August 2016 - 07:54 PM

The only issue I see is that the Zen DP-100-ACR is made just for the Canon 8-15mm lens where as the Aquatica 100mm mini dome with the same extension can use the Tokina 10-17mm with Teleconverter making it more versatile.  Most often than not the Canon 8-15mm lens would be used behind a larger dome where you already have the extension for it. 

 

If you have the Canon 7Dmk2 you can use the Aquatica mini dome for the Tokina 10-17mm alone, with the Tokina 10-17mm with teleconverter with extension, and with the Canon 8-15mm with extension. The issue with unlocking bayonet ports isnt a problem these days with the common use of vacuum systems that we see on most housings.

In Topic: Nikon D500 and Aquatica AD500 first impressions

One of the first shots takan with the D500.  Used AFS single point and since the Turtle was really close (shot @ 10mm) I missed getting the head in focus.  The D500 also has a GRP AF area which is a much larger AF area in the centre of the viewfinder.  I am using this AF area more as it works much better especially for real close up Wide Angle shots.
