In Topic: 8 inch vs mini dome with 10-17 and 1.4X question

21 April 2015 - 04:28 AM

Hi Johhy,

 

Nice images! I used the 8-15mm with my 4 inch Zen dome and loved the results.  According to the Nauticam port charts you need a 30mm port extension  with the the Nauticam 4.33.  As always I'd double check with one of our sponsors before any purchase.  Some of the Zen domes have changed their length over time like the DP100.  Better to check to make sure of the correct extension.

 

Cheers,

Steve

Thanks a lot Steve.  I'll have to investigate the 8-15 some more.  My wallet has been too full lately.  The 8-15 may help with that. :)

I agree that you won't need a TC for the mantas.  However, I agree that for sharks the 1.4 gives a bit extra reach.  I shot 80% with just my 10-17, but took the 1.4 on most Roca Partida dives since I couldn't get as close to the sharks.  I shot the black manta with the TC.

 

Steve,

Do you use your 8-15 with a 4" dome?  I also have a 7D and thought the 8-15 wouldn't work with the 4" dome.
