Canon 7D mkII - How does it performs underwater?

10 January 2016 - 05:37 PM

Hi Folks


I own a Canon 7D mkII, that I am willing to take it Underwater, but the investment is big (even needing only the housing…) so I need to think it properly.


I did not found so many reviews of this camera underwater...


Can you, the ones that have that camera and use it underwater or had experience with it underwater, help me with that?


What did you like most? What you do not like?


What are the settings, that work best for macro? And for fishes? And for WA? …


How do you use the focus? On the shutter? On the back button?


What kind of focus do you usually use? Manual focus? One Shot, AI Focus, AI Servo focus? Do you use the iTR focusing function on?


And a zillion more questions about the camera...

Aquatica regular eyepiece problem

24 October 2015 - 02:29 PM

Hi Folks


I have an Aquatica Housing and I had the eyepiece out from it, my kid dismanteled it, and now I do not know exactly how to mount it again.


I have asked help to Aquatica, but I did not get an answer yet, and as I need the housing to go dive, I am asking here for your help.


What I need to know is the right order to put the different elements inside the "inner part".


Picking up the inner part with the side that is looking to the eyeview of the camera facing down, what is right the sequence of puting the other elements in it.


Please see the schem with the parts identification. The ring spacers R1 and R2 are equal. And the "B" part, the more convex side is facing down or up?


Thanks in advance for your help.
