In Topic: Travel with a back up camera body?

22 August 2016 - 02:16 PM

I keep a back up and use it for topside pics so I don't have to pull the camera out of the housing, and I can leave the back-up out of the room for a couple of hours to de-steam it before shooting in sultry climates.

In Topic: Tokina 10-17 FE + 1.4x TC in 100 mm mini-dome

I use the Kenko/10-17 combo in my Bare dome (4 3/4", I think) with no extension and don't hit the dome.  Total depth of the inner dome to housing edge is only 74mm.  With a 28.5mm extension, that would put your dome at a depth of less than 45mm to have it hitting.  Is it really that short?  My Kenko is 21mm deep.

I've used mine once, with the laser aiming light.  Had trouble with adjusting the laser accurately.  Only one or two shots were actually lit on the subject.  Also, if you want to have fun but not get the shot, Gobies treat a laser dot the same way cats do.  The goby I was trying to shoot kept chasing the dot.  Thankfully, Nudibranchs didn't.  I didn't have any problem with the unit falling off my YSD-1's.  I haven't tried it with the strobe aiming light.  I'll have to see if that works better.

Good luck!  If you got the 15mm at that price, you stole it.

The listing states that it is a Morris lens.  The strobe is a Morris strobe.  You'll find a lot of Nikonos in Ebay US.  There are a couple of vendors who specialized in Nikonos items if that's what you're looking for.  I've had very nice results with Nikon SLR's in old housings, usually available for a couple of hundred dollars.  The later versions, such as my F100 have pretty similar controls and functions to the newer Nikon digitals, use the same lenses and even shoot ttl with modern strobes that still use analog signals.  If you get a Nikonos, you'll probably be stuck with the 35mm std. lens, unless you plan to spend big bucks on a wide angle.
