Hi Alex,

I assume all shots are with the focus point set in the middle? I get a feeling that i get better corner sharpness wile maintaining the center sharpness by using the outer focus points with the 16-35 and the 14-24 at wide apertures. What is your opinion on that?

Hi,

 

I have made a dive with the setup now and I chose to remove the live view leveler just in case... The dive was to about 33 meters and I did experience a little bit of tribble with the ISO leveler but solved that problem with changing the iso in the menu's instead. In general the camera works perfekt!

From the first results I do not se any difference on sensor quality between the D800E and the D810. I shot my images in the 100-1000 ISO range in almost no natural light.

"Perseverance pays off."  Thanks, Alex, for your continued help.  I'm happy to report that I have now acquired all of the functionality that you originally reported!

 

Thanks Kurt! I am happy for you and please give us a trip report when you are back. 

 

I did not get the chance to try mine yet but hopefully on saturday... I might remove the live view leveler just in case, since it does not work anyway. 

 

 kind regards // Alex

Thanks, Alex, for the additional advice.  I was hopeful that I had tried it before with housing's on/off button switched unfavorably, but following your instruction unfortunately did not change the compatibility for me…Same as before.

 

Big trips coming up in two weeks and I've no idea whether Sea & Sea will ever even release an updated housing for the D810, so I'm in quite a pickle!  I see that Nauticam may offer theirs in my time frame so I'm tempted to switch over after 7 happy years with Sea & Sea gear.  I've never even used any other brand of housing, so I've no idea whether my Sea & Sea ports would be compatible with the Nauticam, or if I should be looking forward to acquiring all new ports?

Hi,

does your D810 fit in the housing without the back on? Can you get the base plate to align as it should be? Or does you problem start there? I have to push mine a half millimeter in on the right side, but very gentle. And after that the housing back fits easy...
