In Topic: Options for mounting wetlenses on Aquatica 7D macro-port

06 April 2013 - 07:40 AM

Morten, here are a few options:

 

-Dyron 77mm adapter for Aquatica macro port with the 67mm-77mm step ring

Depending on whether you have the older or the newer macro port, you might need a different size O-ring for the adapter (the newer port has slightly smaller diameter)

-The Reefnet adapter

In Topic: Super macro diopter ... Aquatica vs SubSee

I agree with what you are saying Stewart, but the 18453 extension is the only one that comes close enough for the 60mm/1.4TC combo - there is no perfect fit in Aquatica's lineup. It's not even listed on the lens chart, so I just "make do" with it. The vignetting is pretty minor, but well, there it is... As I said, with the 105mm I don't have this issue, but it hunts for focus a lot more than the 60mm/TC combo does so most of the time I prefer the 60mm. If Aquatica would just come out with 900 different extensions for every possible lens this would be no problem Posted Image

I've actually wondered if the 18463 extension might work with my 60mm/TC combo, you wouldn't know would you Stewart?


When I use the Nikon 60mm AF-D and the 1.4TC, I use the 18456 extension ring. This is after checking with Jean. No vignetting issues that I can tell.

I have both the Aquatica and the Subsee diopters. The Subsees are definitely bulkier, although I haven't actually weighed each of them (I can do that if you want). Haven't done any comparisons regarding quality either, but I will probably sell my Subsees just because of the bulk factor. For carrying them on a dive, I use the Inon double-lens holders on a ULCS arm (both Aquatica and Subsee diopters have 67mm threads).

BTW, I don't think the Saga is available for the Aquatica macro port. One way to use the Subsee on the Aquatica MF macro port is through Dyron's M77 adapter in conjunction with a 77mm - 67mm step ring. glowdive.com also has an adapter for the Subsee.

You might want to contact Jean Bruneau directly (his Wetpixel username is Viz'art).
