Hellu all,

First time using nex 7.
Do you think the quality of the lens is good? I am not convinced, but will need to try it in a less difficult scenario with more light.

Possible to convert S&S D70 housing to D300?

22 February 2012 - 06:50 PM


As the topic says, would such a conversion be possible?
I'm willing to pay $1.000 (more depending on production costs?) if someone would be so kind to do the actual work, and 'guarantee' it would work =)
No fiber optics or anything fancy, the single bulk head installed will do.



Glass for Nex 7?

08 February 2012 - 02:07 PM

Hi all,

I will (most likely) buy a NEX-7, but the available lenses are of no interest to me for underwater use.
I'm getting a bit desperate, as I'm leaving on a (very) long journey of photo and diving soonish.

Looking at the Nauticam port chart (http://www.nauticam....t/pdf_143_1.pdf), there are some Nikonos to Nex adapter.

I've no experience in Nikonos, but would that be a viable option?
How does Nikonos lenses work, the aperture and focus knobs are directly on the lens IIUC, which is waterproof without a port? (forgive my ignorance, I was not in the water during the Nikonos era :(.
Would they be alright for an APC-S sensor?

Any input on the combination NEX 7 with Nikonos glass most appreciated!

Hi guys,

I would like to ask for your expertise on how (if) this picture can be improved, or how I could have shot it differently.
The image is slightly cropped from original and minor contrast adjustments have been made, but it looks more or less like original raw.

Sea & Sea Nikon D300 (S optional) Housing, with or without camera body.
Possibly other brand than Sea & Sea, if S&S port adapters exists.
