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?

Nikonos RS 13mm Fisheye R-UW. Holy Grail!

17 May 2017 - 02:14 PM

For sale is an extremely rare Nikonos R-UW 13mm Fisheye. Serial Number 500628.


This lens is in excellent condition. The glass is near pristine front and back. There are no marks on the glass I am able to photograph.


No evidence of fungus or lens separation of any kind. I cannot see any dust inside the lens.


The rear lens mount is perfect with no brassing. The O ring and groove are perfect. All electrical contacts are clean. Rear filter perfect. Iris lever moves smoothly.


Front and rear caps are in excellent condition. I do not have an RS body to test, but the LED on the distance scale illuminates when mounted on my D810 body and good images are obtained. (These are slightly out of focus as this is a dedicated UW optic.)


This lens can be modified by Harald Hordosch at Seacam to work with modern cameras and housings. I have one modified that I use with a Nauticam ND800 housing with a Nauticam-Seacam port adapter. This works perfectly. Or it can be used with Seacam housings.


Alternatively Andrej Belic will convert the lens electronically with a housing adapter, which does not split the lens into two components. Gates underwater housings will allow adaptation to some its housings.


It can be used natively with Nikonos RS SLR bodies.


Unfortunately I cannot attest to waterproofness as is, but see no issues to suggest it is not. There are some superficial scuffs on the lens shade and a few scratches of the body paint. I would rate this lens a solid 9.5.
