Introducing Nauticamís WACP - The Wide Angle Corrector Port: Discuss Here

28 September 2017 - 03:18 PM

Congratulations to Alex on his work with this emerging (re-emerging?) technology. Also a very well written lay-man's review of the optics and physics related to dome ports and wide angle underwater photography.


I agree with Alex. I don't think megapixels are the issue. It's all about the water-glass-air interface.


I would like to start this thread as a place to discuss the concept, so...fire away!



For Sale: Seacam S180 Magnifying Viewfinder

11 September 2017 - 05:01 PM

Hello All,


Up for sale is a very nice Seacam S180 Magnifying viewfinder.


In excellent shape with only minimal scuffing of the metal body. Few scratches on the outer part of the Delrin eyepiece adjustment.


Inner barrel accessible for diopter adjustment.


Glass is pristine front and back.


Includes Seacam neoprene pouch, protection cap.


From Seacam's Website:


"The SEACAM S180 Sportsfinder has a straight view, is light intensive and brilliant like the S45 Sports- finder. With a triple viewfinder image enlargement and a diopter adjustment of +/- 3 this viewfinder is ideal for a quick and precise aiming. This viewfinder is also rotatable and can thus be positioned almost in the camera´s optical axis.


100% image field with a triple viewfinder image enlargement."


$650 USD

Thanks for looking.



Nikon D850 in D810 or D800 housings: Compatibility check

24 August 2017 - 07:15 AM

Great news! "The Beast" has been announced. 


Clearly early days, but I would offer the following published dimensions for consideration:


D850     146 x 124 x 78.5mm

D800     146 x 123 x 81.5mm

D810     146 x 123 x 82mm



Obviously, there are many other very detailed considerations regarding functionality, but at least, it looks like the D850 MIGHT FIT in existing housings. That's a start:)


The thickness of the body might be the most important dimension, given the new touch screen and ability to latch the housing, and in this regard, we might be in luck. The prism looks lower than the old pop-up flash of the older generations.


Time will tell and fingers crossed.


Any smarter people want to weigh in?
