Spare Body or not

17 May 2013 - 09:54 AM

I do have the 5D MK III and my great lenses. I am VERY happy with it.

Now for travel I am contemplating getting a spare body.

So if I were to buy a 6D or 5D2 it would not fit in the housing if my 5DIII breaks. So I would have to get a spare 5DIII body (Costly)

Or if the worst thing happens and the 5D3 breaks, send it off to the Locale Canon repair center whereever I am traveling in and wait until its repaired. In the meantime use a phone (no underwater photos) or buy a cheap PS camera while I wait for the repair.

Anyone has experience with it and how do you approach it? Thanks

 

 


5D Mark III Nauticam or Aquatica?

22 April 2013 - 09:04 AM

Does anyone house their 5D Mark III in a Aquatica housing? I see some ppl have opted for the Nauticam and are happy. Cost of the Aquatica is less would help with the dome buying.

The Nauticam has the optical flibre connection but seems not a production ready hotshoe ready LED to actually work with it. So if that is the extra $$$ I'm spending its not that worth to me.

Just curious if there are some that have gotten the Aquatica housing, a well known established brand long before Nauticam came to market. Ergonimics and layout of buttons is obviously different for each person's taste, I guess would have to get used to either one.

But I prefer my buttons to be where they are actually on the camera (as I know where they are then) not moved all "jammed" for thumb operation.
