In Topic: Are people leaving micro four thirds?

Yesterday, 10:28 PM

Hi,
@ ronscuba
the size of the camera is not the problem.
But the weight of the housing...
Nauticam for a6300 will not be much more than for the a6000 and that was ~ 1kg!
Nauticam housing for the A7 series 2,4kg......
And the lenses......
If i want it big and heavy, i would take a dslr.
Last february in Malapascua for tresher sharks, the oly was simple not fast enough, or the iso is not usably with mor then 640.......
Thats the reason for my to change!

Regards,
Wolfgang

Hi,
i still have the omd5 in a nauticam housing, but think about going back to aps-c.
Could be a sony 6300, for weight and size, or the nikon d500, for that i have all the lenses i need.
A7mkII is nice, but the housings are too heavy...
The reason is only the low light theme....

Wolfgang

Hi Keith,
ok, thats the main problem in underwaterfotography ;-))

Its nearly the combo my girl friend uses ;-))
Same camera but a Recsea housing...
But very different to a dslr rig.

So had a look for the housing and connectors,
at the moment a Subtronic plug is installed, but there is a Nikonos plug with original connector for the flash shoe as well included in the spare parts.
Can install that for you.
Have a Subtronic T-piece, but that would need Subtronic to Inon / Sea & Sea cable.
Dont know if there is a cable for one plug to two strobes available as well. Subtronic is a little bit tricky...
Nikonos to 2 Inons is no problem.

Take your time,
Wolfgang

Hi,
the housing has one nikonos connector and a unused thread with plug.
I used it with the weihkamp ttl converter for one Sea & Sea 250pro, and from there optical connector to the second 250 pro. So i had ttl ( more or less ;-))
The normal Nikonos to Inon / Sea & Sea cable is fine, or the Nikonos to two strobes Inon / Sea & Sea.
Or you use a T- piece.
I have a look, could be i still have one, than its included.

You can get still spare parts, or service, the page of the company is sleeping since some time, but if you contact Uwe, he is very helpful.
They still produce housings, but dont advert them....

If you want more pics, or other info,
dont hesitate to ask.
Regards,
Wolfgang
