sealife reefmaster DC300/DC310 3.3 UW camera

16 February 2006 - 07:05 AM

Has anyone used the reefmaster dc300/dc310 3.3? Would this make a good starter for UW digital? I am currently using a Nikonos III. Should I be looking at something different? I should probably say that I would want to stay under $800.

16mm for nikonos III

09 January 2006 - 08:10 AM

I own a nikonos III with 35mm lens, which I have never used. I will be in Cozumel feb. 5, and will be using the camera then. I have seen a used 16mm lens, which screws onto my 35mm. It says that you can interchange it underwater, so you are really using two lenses.

Has anyone used this, and does it take good pictures? How can you make a 16mm out of a 35mm anyway? Is this a good way to go, as the 15mm Nikonos are quite pricey, and cost more that my camera and strobe. I have read that the 35mm lens is "useless" underwater, (in other forums) and that I should have a wide angle lens.
