In Topic: Will Nikon D7200 fit straight in D7100 housings

08 March 2015 - 03:14 PM

The button looks a bit taller on the D7200 in all views.  Hope that doesn't screw up the housing fit, like the multi selector button on the D300S did for the D300.


In Topic: Ikelite Type/Style Dome Covers?

Or check these out. http://www.lenscoat....arge-p-388.htmlI use an XXL on my 5" dome and it works great.  Covers the dome and shade ring nicely and folds over the back of the shade ring a bit.  I don't know if there biggest one will stretch over your 8" dome, but if it does, it's less than half the price of similar ones elsewhere.  I think I paid $64.95 more my Backscatter cover on my Sea & Sea fisheye dome.  They have theirs made locally and they are quite nice.

Have fun!  They come up on E-Bay US and GB quite frequently.

Looks like everything above f5.6 is brilliant.  Love the Gorgonian with the sunburst.  Not fond of the background blur with the 20mm, but I imagine that's the lens.


In Topic: Land based flash underwater?

Until recently, all of the Olympus strobes were housed.  I had the little strobe they sold for my SP-350, and it worked beautifully in ttl or manual mode.  As someone else said, great for macro, but too narrow and too weak for wide angle.  I've also seen a bunch of DIY posts for Vivitar strobes, which are a dime a dozen.

 

Here's a DIY example:  http://eocean.free.f...be/indexstr.htm

 

Others have used pipe, but it's awfully big that way.
