Nauticam zoom gear for Tokina 10-17

02 August 2013 - 08:54 PM

Hi everyone,

I just got a new Nauticam housing for my D7100. For the life of me, I cannot figure out how to mount the zoom gear for the Tokina 10-17. Could someone please explain? Pictures would be even better.

There are 2 parts to the zoom gear. One is a rubbery ring that I presume goes around the zoom ring of the lens. The other is the actual gear that I presume goes around the rubbery ring. But when I mount the rubbery ring on the zoom gear of the lens, the diameter is wider than the inner diameter of the gear, so it has no possibility of fitting. Also, the rubbery ring seems to have an up and down and I am not sure which direction should face where. It's not even clear to me the sequence whereby the parts go on the camera (lens, rubbery ring, gear).

Please help! Thank you.

Zen 4" dome port cover

Hi everyone,

I recently got a Zen 4" dome port DP-100 for my Nauticam D7100 housing. It did not come with a port cover. Does anyone have recommendations for a good dome port cover solution? I am concerned about damaging the glass inadvertently. Thank you.

Views on Wakatobi

13 June 2013 - 07:31 PM

Dear UW photography experts,


I would like to ask for your views on Wakatobi.  I am considering joining an UW photography group for a trip to Wakatobi Dive Resort in Nov/Dec and I wanted to get a better understanding of what to expect.


I am an experienced diver (600 dives in all kinds of environments, technical and cave trained) with several years of UW photography experience (~150 UW photography dives).  99% of my photography to date has been macro photography but I would like to start learning how to shoot wide-angle.  I have been to well known macro locations such as Anilao, Puerto Galera, Cabilao, Lembeh, Bali, and Sipadan.


I am looking for a place with excellent macro life and reasonable wide angle opportunities.


My questions are:

1. How would you rate Wakatobi's diving relative to some of the places that I mentioned above and also relative to places like Komodo, Ambon, Raja Ampat?

2. Are the conditions in Wakatobi conducive for underwater photography?  Are there lots of walls and currents? (I don't particularly like walls or currents for macro photography)

3. What do you think of Wakatobi Dive Resort?


Thank you.
