In Topic: Fisheye lens options for RX100/Nauticam?

Dear Xander,

 

 

Great pictures!  I would like to ask if there is any vignetting with the FIX UWL-04 at full wide, or do you have to zoom in a little? Does it have a 52mm thread, thus the need for a 67mm adaptor?

 

Thank you.

 

 

Mike

Thanks Mike, yes there is minimal vignetting. The photo attached in previous post is uncropped, and you can just see the dome shade on the bottom corner. I normally just crop it out in Photoshop, if you would zoom in you loose too much angle on all sides of the photo.

 

And yes you need a 52mm -> 67mm adaptor. Mine came with the lens, or I ordered it with it for a few dollars. I can not remember exactly...

 

Cheers

The standard option is the Inon UWL-H100 28LD you need a FIX M67-LDF adapter, this lens as you note is expensive but has great optical quality

 

You can attach the Inon UFL165AD to do this you need a spacer ring for the FIX M67-ADF pro adapter this lens requires to step zoom to 35mm but is light and you can remove it in water

Alternatively with the same FIX M67-ADF pro you can attach the Inon UWL-10028AD again with bayonet, this has also an optional dome but is more expensive than the previous option. This lens does not vignette

 

Other options with an M67 lens that I would definitely NOT recommend to use are:

1. Inon UWL-H100 28M67 with dome

2. Fix UWL28M52 good field of view requires a step down ring

2. Fix UWL-04 as above better optics

 

The fix lenses are cheap but forget about removing the lens in water with any of the M67 options. I have the RX100 and because you need diopters even at 4 inches to focus I have bayonet mounts

 

 

I have been using the RX100 with Nauticam and the FIX UWL-04 and would highly recommend this combination.

The optics/ corners are sharp and I remove this lens often underwater without any problems. It came with a 67mm adapter and works perfectly.

I have had this lens for over two years and used it extensively without any problems on the threads.

 

This is a photo taken with this setup and you can see more at my flickr account: http://www.flickr.co...os/xanderwater/
