In Topic: Sea & Sea sync cords - different metals available?

I use Lanocote on the threads.  It works quite well, but keep it off your o-rings.  Periodically, I remove the cable, clean the old dried out stuff off and recoat while touching up the grease on the o-ring.  Before using it, I had several cables freeze solid to the fitting.  I also had trouble with the one on my HW converter on my old Oly.  I destroyed two $500 converters and two cables before wising up.

I use the stick on wheel weights on the fisheye dome port on my Sea & Sea, as it floats dome up otherwise.  They work great.  Just cover the bottom shade ring with them.


In Topic: Nauticam CMC with Nikon 60mm Macro

The 60mm micro is a great all around macro/portrait lens, but it sucks for super macro.  Focus is so close and DOF so shallow at that level of magnification that it's virtually impossible to focus and even if you can, it's too close to light it.  Haven't used the macro converter but with either the SubSea 10 or a Flip, I haven't got a usable shot.  Almost everyone uses the 105mm.  I understand the 85 will work as well.


In Topic: Problem with Aquatica 4" minidome & Nauticam NA-D500

If you're using the 10-17 with the 1.4, I think the 1.4 is 19mm as I recall.  If you have a short extension for either Aquatica or Nauticam, probably the shortest available will be a good fit.  With my Bare port, which is about 4 3/4", it works without extension but the lens almost hits the port.

Divervision sells Deeproof gear for S & S or F.I.T. Gear for Nexus, but I haven't found anything for Aquatica. Don't know what the difference in gear size is.  Might be a lens with similar focus size that can be adapted with minor adjustment.
