Hey Moses, come on down this weekend and you can take the LX100 for a dive...


Ryan do you know more about the ports and if the mini dome can fit the flip diopter?
Does nauticam offer a close up lens for that strange flat port?

I am a bit confused by that elliptical flat port. I would hope for a flip diopter adapter to go on the dome as it does for the 4" wide angle port instead. The M67 port must be limiting the zoom I guess so not a wet lens in true sense. Will have to wait and see

The housing will be released early 2015. I think that there are several challenges with the port system due to the large sensor and aperture lens. At dema there were few prototype ports that looked quite different to what you would normally expect for a compact

Interesting the port system and a nauticam own wide angle lens

In Topic: 60mm VS 100mm DOF

As Bill says DOF at same magnification does not change the only difference is the field of view

60mm and 105mm bear different working distance to achieve the same magnification and the amount of background behind will change

 

Usually a narrower lens give less background behind and more subject isolation however by being further away you may have less clarity due to particles in the water

 

In terms of sharpness every glass has different performance regardless of focal length, that is also a factor as without sharpness things are garbled
