In Topic: DX to FX and back again

04 June 2017 - 06:25 AM

Specs give advantage to the D800 in both. Even if they are the same, what are you really gaining by trading? It's not a lot smaller (120g is hardly a lot) and you have to replace housing and probably a couple lenses. If you don't use one already, you'll also need a flash trigger.

 

Honestly, I don't see much of an upside at all. 


In Topic: Nauticam D800 with Sigma 15 Fisheye - which port?

I love the 170mm Zen with the Sigma 15 - used with my D800 and now D810 & Nauticam Housing.

I would not move from my D810 to a D500 for underwater. For me, it doesn't make sense. New housing, new glass, less resolution, less color depth, and less dynamic range. Nope.

 

If I change cameras, it'll be to something smaller. For me a Dx body isn't really smaller enough to make it worth the change. I don't do video often, and not need 4k either. 


In Topic: Any hands on experience with Nikkor 20mm 2.8D ?

I did a bunch of dives in the Maldives with a 20mm 2.8D shooting a D810 with a Zen 200mm dome and Nauticam housing - no extension ring. I got some pretty good results from it, and found it was better than I expected, especially with video (aside from the focus noise) and blue water shots like this:

In Topic: old nikon 60mm lens in nauticam 60/87 mm port new type

07 January 2017 - 07:43 PM

I used the 60mm 2.8D in port 87 a lot with a DX body (D7000)...worked well on its own. With a wet diopter it showed the barrel of the wet lens (Subsee +10). Now that I am shooting a full frame body, I haven't used the 60.
