140mm minidome on Nikon D750 FX format

11 December 2014 - 08:31 PM

Hello all,
 
I’ve just come back from an Alex Mustard workshop in Raja Ampat where I was predominately using a 140mm minidome on the D750. I was using it with the Sigma 15mm and sometimes with the 1.4x Kenko teleconvertor. I have to say that it has changed the way I think about FX underwater as I love the practicality of minidomes but did not want to compromise on quality. I am very pleased with the corner sharpness of the 140mm even up to F7.1 with the Sigma 15mm. Here are some images taken with the minidome.
 
1. D750, Sigma 15mm, F9, 1/60, ISO 500, 140mm minidome

I hope you enjoy seeing them even half as much as I did taking them.

FIX Neo Blue light testing in the Red Sea

13 July 2014 - 08:36 AM

Hello, I took a FIX Neo Blue light to the Red Sea last week and using just this and the yellow lens filter got some interesting results. All were taken with the Nauticam NA-EM10 with Olympus EM10 and the 60mm Olympus macro lens ISO around 640.

Lens for mid-size animal portraits on 5D3

29 April 2014 - 05:26 AM

Hi all,

 

I wonder what people are using as a lens of choice falling between the 100mm macro and the 8-15 Fisheye.

 

Thanks in advance

Alex


Nauticam SMC in Puerto Galera

19 March 2014 - 10:15 PM

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.
