In Topic: Newbie Must Read: What new system did you just buy?

25 June 2012 - 02:57 PM

Been shooting for the last several years with a Nexus d300 and Inon strobes. Bought a D800 and am deciding between the Nexus and Nauticam housings. Have never shot video before. I have always believed its mostly about the user interface with the housing that's most important rather than brand. Have always loved My Nexus but hear Nauticam is more friendly, although weighs about half more. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Also any thoughts on the management of the huge files that are coming my way with the 36mp sensor and the lack of wide angle FX lenses. My 105mm and 60mm are already FX, but I see I need a 17-35FX. Also I'm used to 1.5x on my 105mm and assume I will be disappointed with only the rated 105mm. My 105mm on a DX with a wet Nexus diopter is just right for Pygmies.... I guess not so anymore? Will I have to put on a 1:4 tele to be back in the same place, but with the loss of speed, or buy a more powerful wet diopter? I'm really swimming with issues with housing this D800. Maybe I should sell it and get a D7000 and crank along with all my FX stuff, file sizes and experience from about 10,000 images per year over 5 years????????
