In Topic: Review of the new Nauticam wet wide angle lens WWL-1

14 April 2016 - 12:47 PM

I just noticed the request above for comparisons, and have these v. Panasonic 7-14 and Olympus 9-18.




WWL-1 is significantly wider than both of these, with some barrel distortion.  Keep in mind the lens is full zoom through, and when you frame to match the fov offered by these two options a lot of the barrel distortion is cropped out in camera.

We'll test the lens behind available domes as soon as we can to see if it is any better than 16-35 /4, or 28 /2 with WWL-1.  I have high hopes for the lens based on Touit 12mm.  I'm also skeptical that it will have better corner sharpness than 28 with WWL, but that is a "different" combo having a bit of barrel distortion and a wider 130 deg FOV.


My quick WWL-1 tests with A7 v. 28 /2 & SEL-057FEC and 16-35/4.

Just for the sake of clarity and warranty transparency, this part is made by the Nauticam USA service team, and is not a Nauticam part.

230 domes are not modular, but DP-100 may be.  The best source of up to date product info is glass at zenunderwater dot com, and a photo of the exact part goes a long way to determining any rolling changes that have happened along the way that could affect compatibility.


I actually answered Paul's inquiry from Dec 4 2014, so I'd be the unhelpful one.  I'm guessing the point that was unsatisfactory is that we don't sell these parts for user install, and we would always recommend that other dealers do the same.  This may not always be the most convenient solution, but we've found this to be the best way to avoid unexpected incompatibilities, stuck parts, and damage from DIY modification.

That is not HDMI, it is USB.
