Cage diving with great whites

08 March 2014 - 05:25 AM

Monday.  Cape Town.  Cage diving. Great white sharks.  Can't miss the chance, and need to get this right - advice please!


I use a Sony NEX-6 (which is APSC) in a Nauticam housing, and have a choice of lenses and ports available:

(a) 7-inch port with 10-18mm zoom; or

(b) 4.33-inch port with either 12mm wide-angle or 8mm fisheye.


Obviously (a) gives me more flexibility, but maybe the size of the dome could be an issue in the confines of a cage.  Also, note sure whether the sharks will be close enough to merit the fisheye.


Any advice welcome, please!

Hello all,


I'm going to be working in South Africa for three months from January, based in Johannesburg.  I want to maximise the weekend opportunities to get out of the city and go diving, but I realise this probably means driving six hours to Sodwana Bay on Friday evenings ... so I'm looking to share that burden and find a buddy/buddies when I get there.  I'm qualified to PADI MSD and TDI Deco Procs, with over 300 dives, and (naturally) a keen photographer.


If any WetPixellators are based in Jo'burg and would like to link up, or if anyone knows any knows any keen (and sociable) divers there, do please get in touch.

Does anyone have any experience of using one of these things (or similar)?    What degree of automation do they give?  Are they compatible with a Nauticam housing and port?
