In Topic: teleconverter for sigma15mm

04 May 2016 - 08:21 AM

I have used the Kenko 1.4 DGX TC with my Sigma 15mm Fisheye behind a Zen 170mm dome with 20mm extension ring (Nauticam housing) and a D800. I didn't notice any image degradation, but at the same time 15mm vs 21mm with that lens was not a big difference. 

 

I have not shot reef scenes with the above so not sure how it'd handle all that detail. I now use a D810, but not a big difference to the D800 as far as IQ, IMO.

 

I think it shoots big stuff pretty well with the 1.4 DGX.

You could pay 9.99 a month for PS & LR CC...and to be fair, the OP did specify LR & PS in the question.


In Topic: travel question, can I put my arms for my strobes in the carry on

25 April 2016 - 11:43 AM

I have carried my arms and clamps on a couple times, but don't any more - moving from the RX100 (when i carried it all on) to DSLR system means that stuff and a lot more gets checked now. 

 

I have had the following taken from carry on: zip ties, allen wrenches (the small set that comes with Nauticam housings), 12mm wrench, and a couple AA batteries - all taken leaving Mexico.


In Topic: Balancing an 8 dome (filled with air)

My Nauticam 8.5" dome definitely likes to face the sky. I have only taken it on 7 or so dives while on a trip to Hawaii a few weeks ago, so I didn't really mess with it too much. It's definitely more positive overall too (Nauticam NA-D810 housing, 70mm extension ring, 16-35/4 lens) than with my 170mm dome and 15mm fisheye. I may try it with less floats on the arms, but I don't think weights on the extension ring are a good idea and I'm not too keen on putting wheel weights on the shade of the dome either. Hmm.

Manual focus.
