In Topic: Nauticam Mirrorless ports depth rating

20 November 2014 - 09:46 AM

I can't speak for Nauticam, but I suspect no one replied because no one had an answer?  My working assumption (unless cautioned otherwise for a specific port)  is that the ports are rated to the same depth as the housing, unless perhaps you get one of their "deep rated" special order housings.

 

It would not surprise me if the larger glass domes have a shallower rating than a smaller acrylic port.  

 

Since I don't dive to 60m, let alone 100m, I guess I have never given this much thought.

 

Edit to add...This might be of interest to you:

 


In Topic: Lens choices for a MFT system

Olympus will have a 7-14 lens available in 2015.  It won't be a fisheye zoom like the tokina but may (or may not) offer close focusing.  If you were to buy an EM1, I would think you might want to get the 60 macro and 8mm fisheye lenses and then see what the Oly 7-14 looks like for you when released.

 

Panasonic makes a 7-14 currently, but it does not offer particularly close focusing.

 

I assume 12mm (24mm equivalent in 35mm terms) would not be wide enough for your purposes, otherwise the Olympus 12-40 is nice and allows pretty close focusing.

Rx100V it has the hdmi bulkhead to connect the dp4 monitor. However it also work with integral flash that the rx100 has

 

That's not what you referred to in your earlier post; you advocated a "video only housing instead of building a monster to host the add on flash."   I commented that they were unlikely to produce such a housing, to which you replied with a claim that Nauticam made a "video version" of the RX100 housing.  The clear implication of the two posts was that Nauticam had made a "video only" housing in the past which they simply have not.

Nauticam has created video versions for the rx100 so they could do it for a 4K camera

 

Nauticam offers a "video only" housing for the RX100?  One that does not accommodate the use of optically fired strobes, thus rendering still photography impractical?  That is odd; I cannot find such a creature on their website, even looking at discontinued models.  What was the model number for this housing?

I hope Nauticam does not bother at all about still images and does a video only housing instead of building a monster to host the add on flash

 

 

I am only interested in this for use on land, so I had not thought about the flash issue.  That would be quite a hump, but I highly doubt Nauticam would create a video-only housing for a camera like this.  I hope someone can work it out for those of you looking at this for underwater use.
