For Sale: Nauticam NA-600D + Canon 600D/T3i - GREAT DEAL!

08 February 2013 - 09:03 AM

Nauticam NA-600D Housing with MP41 Macro Port
Excellent working condition, with cosmetic wear consistent with use.
The housing has seen about 260 dives in Indonesia since August, and has never had a leak of any kind. The included MP41 flat macro port accommodates the EF-S 60mm f/2.8 lens (included.) I used the MP41 in conjunction with an Extension Ring 50 (not included) to house the EF 100mm f/2.8 macro lens. There is a small scratch on the lower front of the port glass that does not show up in photographs.

Nauticam Focus Gear for the Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro Lens

Canon EOS 600D / Rebel T3i, 18MP APS-C Sensor, Full 1080p HD Video
Excellent working and cosmetic condition.
Purchased new from B&H in August 2012, and has approximately 21,000 shutter actions (99.9% of those were underwater). Camera has functioned perfectly with no issues, has no cosmetic flaws, and has been treated with a lot of love. Most original accessories included, along with a second Canon battery.

Canon EF-S 60mm f/2.8 Macro USM Lens
Purchased new from B&H in August 2012, is in excellent working and cosmetic condition, with zero issues.

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 USM Autofocus Macro Lens
Purchased new in Singapore in October 2012, is in excellent working and cosmetic condition, with zero issues.

Asking Price: $3300 (30% off original price of all items)

Would like to sell as a complete unit, and not for individual parts. Reason for selling is that I have upgraded to the 5D MkIII. Pictures available upon request. I also have a Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L wide zoom lens that I could include for an additional cost.

Canon 600D / Rebel T3i Issue....Flash Up = Shutter Capped at 1/200th???

22 August 2012 - 06:19 AM

Hey Gang,

In manual mode, with the flash in the closed position, you can adjust the shutter speed all the way up to 1/4000th sec. With the flash in the open position (which it must be to trigger my strobes via FO cable) the camera caps the shutter at 1/200th. I'm guessing that there's a reasoning behind this, and that it relates to land-based photography.

Am I missing something here? Is there a way around this, or is this a limitation due to this particular sensor or firmware? For any 500D or 550D owners out there, is this an issue on those models as well? No matter what you change, with the flash up you can't get past 1/200th. Even when you close the flash and set it to a faster shutter speed, as soon as you pop the flash up it drops the shutter speed back to 1/200th.

Has anyone used Magic Lantern, and will it unlock the shutter cap? There is mention about access to shutter speeds, but nothing specific about this particular issue, and it does state that the camera will still impose limitations in certain modes.

Any thoughts or suggestions welcomed. If this is a simple case of a limitation for this particular (low-end) model, does Canon have the same limitation on any of the higher-end models with the same sensor?

Thanks,
Chris

Carry-On - Pro Trekker 600AW

Hi All,

Anyone currently using a Lowepro Pro Trekker 600 AW for transporting photo gear as a carry-on? It seems like when you tighten everything down that it's right on the edge of the carry-on limitations. Any advice or tips appreciated!

Cheers,
Christian
