In Topic: Tokina 10-17 on FX

back after a couple of dives...

 

it seems, that i can't get sharp edges with the lens and the "small" 170mm-Port on the D800.

 

I tried:

Tokina +20mm Extension + Athena

Tokina +40mm Extension+ Athena

Tokina +Kenko 1.4 +20mm Extension+Athena

Tokina + Kenko 1.4 + 40mm Extension+ Athena

 

all settings corners too soft... worst at 10mm, slightly better at 17mm. Can't fix it, stepping down to f11/13 doesn't make much difference.

 

I think i need a new Port...

 

Any suggestions? It's a Sea&Sea MDX-D800 housing. I'm looking at a S&S FE 240mm Port and the Nauticam 8.5" Dome at the present. Will the Nauticam be adaptable for the S&S-housing? Which one would you buy? (and no: ZEN is out of range...)

 

Thx,

Michael


In Topic: Which arms and clamps do really work?

27 March 2014 - 05:01 AM

interceptor21 - i don't know the brand any more, think 10bar or H2O. Bought them a couple of years ago. the clamps bend up after a few months as the arms didn't stay in place and i had to tighten them pretty much. I replaced one with a newer version which was way better, but there are still 5 "old" clamps left...

Now it's time to get rid of them and buy a decent set...

thanks for you replies, i will go for ULCS now.
