Mini Review: Nauticam 5D MKIII Deep Test to 125m

30 November 2013 - 04:54 PM

Hi Guys, 


I've recently been testing a Nauticam 5D MKIII housing on some deep dives and thought I'd put up a little mini review for those interested. 





Macro with Canon 5D3

09 November 2013 - 02:55 AM

Hi guys,


Just wondering if any 5D3 shooters out there have any macro setup suggestions. I upgraded from a 7D a year ago, but haven't done much macro and am have been left wanting with the full frame setup and the 100mm L. 


I've got a few diopters and extension tubes, but none of them seem great to be honest. I'm really wanting the equivalent of a 100mm on a crop, but such is life I guess. I didn't have a tele to bring on this trip unforuntately. 


Also what AF settings are you guys using. The 5D3 is supposed to have the bees nees of AF, and for WA it is, but for macro I've been left wanting. 


thanks, ds

Subal 1DS mk2 /w Sigma 15mm focus issue

02 July 2013 - 12:15 AM

Hi guys,

I'm posting this for a mate in the field. He's got a 1DS mk2 in subal housing, 9" port but no extension; and getting focus issues (ie can't lock).

I looked on the subal site but can't find the port extension recommendations, does anyone know the right extension (if any).

I've got a canon 28mm, 17-40mm and tokina 10-17mm I can send him tomorrow if either of those will work for him.

Thanks in advance, Damien

DS-125 LI-ION Batteries

06 May 2013 - 01:06 AM



Does anyone know what kind of cells are in the newer Li-Ion DS-125 packs?


I've specs say 7.4v 4500mah, so we've talking some for of 2S configuration with a PCM. The biggest question is whether the internal electronics a have changed.


I've got a couple of packs that are dead, and I figure I may as well fill them with lithium over nimh.
