In Topic: Missing C-Clip in Nauticam NA-EM5 housing. How to replace?

29 October 2014 - 12:16 PM

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the reply and link to McMaster. I will probably order from them if I figure out the dimensions of the shaft in my NA-EM5.  I could use some extra c-clips if they get lost.


I've contacted Bluewater about it.

Hi Tim,


No I didn't. Though I didn't yet try the car polishing solution yet.  You have any ideas?

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the helpful tips and insights.  It for the most part seems beneficial to take a workshop as long as it's not too big and with a good reputable instructor.  I just signed up for a workshop with Aaron Wong in Anilao and couldn't be more excited.  Hoping to build on the craft and get creative with shooting underwater!

Thanks everyone for your tips, opinions, and insights.  It all helps.


Those are all great reasons for sure.

SD Marko,

Yes, I'm very open to ideas and learning now.  I would imagine people will be bouncing ideas off of each other and learning not solely from the instructor.  I tend to learn better by example and so this would benefit me a lot.


Thanks for the tips. I generally have a firm understanding of your bullet points. I could probably learn my camera and controls better (I would like to be faster and more fluid).  I'll also take a look at the Martin Edge book again.


That's good to know.  Sounds like generally people find value in workshops.

Yeah the stains seem more like an odd chemical reaction with the glass rather than mineral deposits.  Thankfully, you don't seem to notice them when the glass is wet.  After looking through the glass when the port is partially submerged in a bowl of water, it doesn't seem to affect image quality.

jonny shaw,


Thanks for the tip.  I do usually try to keep my housing wet if fresh water isn't available and rinse, soak and dry as soon as possible.
