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.

I've never had any issue finding my 45-degree viewfinder on a night dive. Finding critters, especially tiny stuff like pygmy seahorses, is another matter haha!


In Topic: New lens - what would you choose?

I agree with pretty much everything Tim posted, including the top 3 lenses underwater - I have the same three and can't think of anything I would rather have. I wasn't too sure about the 16-35, but it's fantastic. D810 & 16-35:

That 105 you have will make really amazing headshots. I shot this one with my D810 and Nikon 105/2.8 micro

In Topic: Nikon D500 with Tokina 100mm Macro

Is there a focus gear for that lens, or one for another that will work on it?  IMO shooting a 100 or 105 with a strong wet diopter like the SMC is a bit easier using manual focus: set the lens, and move slightly until you get the focus where you want it -- of course with an external magnifying VF!

I don't have the red button, so I guess it's the first version.

I didn't do anything special after. Just business as usual. No evidence of water anywhere or any other issues. Was in a deep cage at Isla Guadalupe with the great whites. Prob 30' or so.
