In Topic: Nikon D810 in D800 housings: Compatibility check

14 April 2015 - 01:35 PM

Hi Dreifish,


From earlier in the topic:



I am on the Wetpixel Whsle sharks trip and am using a D810 in Nauticam NA-D800 II housing.


The camera fits (just) although it does contact with the top of the housing when removing it. All left hand controls work bar the flash pop up and the new bracketing button.


The right hand side: Working: Shutter release. AF on. Meter mode selector. Rear command dial. Multi function selector, Info button. Mode selector, EV control.


Not working: Front command dial (see below). Record. Live view, Live view selector. AF/AE lock.


I have modified the housing by reversing the gear that access the main command dial, this is now functioning.


First impressions of the camera are good...

In Topic: Wetpixel's Nikon FX wide-angle lens review

Hi Tom,


I agree, dome curvature is a constant...


I was really trying to avoid getting bogged down with Gomer et al! There is so much confusion about domes and lens choices that I wanted to keep it simple.


Ultimately, it is almost impossible to use dome port theory to predict a lens's performance as each lens has specific construction quirks that make it either more or less suitable.


To bear this out, I was looking at a text book on underwater photography today where many of the images illustrating it were shot with a 14-24mm, and all the corners were soft!


Camera/dome/virtuel image to subject distance is indeed important, to test this I guess you need a fixed rig...



In Topic: Will Nikon D7200 fit straight in D7100 housings

Hi all,


Just to further confirm that the Nikon D7200 will fit in the Nauticam D7100 housing:




I think that it is very likely that it will fit into the brands housings too as the D7200's size and button placements are identical to that of the D7100. Of course without physically trying it it is impossible to be absolutely sure.



In Topic: AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED

I am writing the review with the test images as I write! 


It includes Nikkor 14-24mm, 16-35mm and 20mm f1.8. Sigma 20mm and Tokina 17mm.


All shot with the D810.


It will be posted early next week
