Shallow depth of field, maybe 4.0 or less. Two strobes at 60* or more, even lighting.....


In Topic: Advice on housings Nikon D7000

Yesterday, 06:54 PM

I would look at a mid level used housing : Aquatica, Sea & Sea, Subal. Try for a complete package - housing, strobe, arms, ......

Each of these are well made and are from reputable companies, and spare parts are available for periodic overhauls.

If possible, buy from this board as I believe most, if not all are reputable and the sellers knowledgable..

The housing you referenced on EBay: what brand is it, are there interchangable ports available, does it have strobe connector/ports,  .........?

Look closely at the various views of it; it is designed the same as a $100 case for an inexpensive point & shoot camera.

It is only rated to 130 ft - implying it is not very robust.  I believe the three I suggested are all good to 300 ft.

 

Lastly, you get what you pay for - some times! And you will not get much for $448.

 

Good luck

It needs to be serviced.

A sticking shutter button is very common with  Nik V that have not been serviced for a period.

Without service, it will eventually leak.
