#359349 Olympus 7-14 mm f2.8 will not fit in Nauticam housings

Posted by EspenB on 29 March 2015 - 01:13 AM

Does anyone here use the Nauticam 7" Dome with the M.Zuiko 12-40 Pro?? Its seems that it would be a easier (no extensions to attach) and cheaper solution than the Zen domes. Also, wouldn't it work with the upcoming 7-14mm Pro?


Naticam Port chart: http://www.nauticam..../catalog_18.pdf


The 12-40 mm PRO fits in either the "36129" 7 inch dome or the "18809" 180 mm glass dome.


The 7-14 mm PRO is too wide for the N85 port system (as illustrated in my first post), thus you will need the N85 to N120 port converter as previously depicted in this thread. The lens neds to be installed from the port side after the camera is installed, then you need to install the dome port.

#335410 Which video lights for wreck illumination

Posted by EspenB on 05 August 2013 - 11:59 PM

I really want new lamps for my DSLR based video rig (Panasonic GH3 in Nauticam housing) but fint it difficult to find a good Product to invest in. My current video lights are the Patima Redshark PL-2700W (2700 lumens). I really want something in the 5-10 000 lumen range, preferably LED based and no external cannister.


The L&M Sola 4000 and FIX Aquabolt 7000 is perhaps closest to my vision, but the Sola 4000 might not have enough output and my main concern about the Aquabolt 7000 is the inconsistent color temperature which seems to change a lot with the output power.


On the cheaper high output side you have the Archon 100W LED light, but this "chinese" light seem to get mixed reviews. Also the output seems to not be the 10 000 lumens stated. Also not possible to dim the light in an incremental fashion.


My light budget is arround 3000-3500 USD total.


Any suggestions or recomendations for products to look into?
