The SMC do NOT fit the new Subsee adaptor for Subal port - I just tried it out today.


The new Subsee adaptor use a clamp with o-ring mechanism instead of screw threads, so there's no way to screw in the SMC.


And because the SMC do not have a straight cylindrical shape at the receptacle end, it cannot be secured by the clamp mechanism of the Subsee adaptor. It simply doesn't stay in.


I'm trying to find out more from Nauticam HK about this issue, will come back if there's any update.

Does any one know whether the SMC can be used on the new Reefnet (Subsee) adaptor for Subal port?

Actually I've been quite comfortable shooting with manual for the past 4 years with my Subal ND700 (no TTL) . In fact i got better exposure results than the old days when I used TTL on film camera (F100).


Recently I'm considering upgrading my set-up from Subal D700 to D800.  Just wondering should I keep using manual or should I switch to TTL with FO sync (talking about macro shots only, for WA I would definitely stick to manual) ?   


I also heard (from another thread) that with TTL the shutter sync speed would be much limited - is this true or not? 


Any comments & suggestions?
