In Topic: How close to neutral buoyancy should I be?

28 February 2017 - 05:07 AM

I prefer to be a bit negative, that way I let go and my rig will gradually float down.   But being a bit positive or negative is personal preference.


What I believe jchance is asking is buoyancy advice for his Nauticam D7200 rig.  


What do others use for additional buoyancy on their Nauticam D7200?

I have flown though out the Indo Pacific  and Southeast Asia with a 40+ lb think thank with camera gear on my back.

The only issues I have had is in Cairns Australia, they are very restrictive on carry-on weight at 15 lbs on Qantas

I would suggest you avoid Australia



In Topic: Nikon 85mm Micro

I like the zoom flexibility of the 70-180 mm micro lens,

but have found it soft on my D800E compared to the 60mm G and 105 mm VR



In Topic: New lens - what would you choose?

I do not know the Ikelite ports.  

But the 28-85 mm f 2.8-4D IF will fit into the Subal flat port V3 that I use with my Nikkor 105 mm VR or my Nikkor 60 mm with an extension.

If the Ikelite FL port that you have works with a Nikkor 105, it should work with the 28-85 mm f2.8-4D IF lens too.

A good medium zoom that works well underwater is the Nikkor 24-85 mm f 2.8-4D IF.

It works with a flat port set at it's macro setting as a 35-85 mm lens that does 1:2 reproduction ratio
