#345224 Nauticam SMC in Puerto Galera

Posted by Alex_Tattersall on 29 March 2014 - 01:25 AM

With the 7D, I’d turn off the half-shutter press off so you are focusing on the rear button, find a suitable subject, no current or swell, and a place where you can put a sand spike to rest the housing on. Use the rear lever to focus to the magnification you want approx then release. Using the sand spike, gradually ease the housing forwards and backwards until you see the subject in focus and then pull the shutter. Take lots of shots as the DoF is very minimal especially as you increase to 1:1 on the lens. Think about the out of focus areas and how they will appear in the image. Breathe and work within depths that you are very comfortable with. Spend 30 minutes with a subject.

Hello all,
Just returned from a Photo workshop I was running in the Philippines. I didn’t take the 105mm macro off my D7100 for 9 days. Here are some results with the outrageously strong and sharp Nauticam SMC. Mostly uncropped.

Yes, my friend Doug did well with the SMC on the 12-50mm in uncropped splendour

Just screw the Subsee +10 to the front of the macro port you are using with the 12-50mm, you’ll get good results with that combination.

Great news Karen, look forward to some images.

Karen, you could mount a T plate on the handle and then use a sliding locline T-plate base such as those by Ikelite or 10 bar to attach your locline arm to the handle.

I borrowed the 200mm macro lens from Martin Edge last month and took it to the Red Sea. With no diopter, it was an excellent fish portrait lens for the more skittish. I had two INON Z240s on very long arms ahead of me. Here are some results:
