Nauticam ttl converter for d500 housing

18 September 2017 - 12:50 PM

I have a Nikon d500 in a Nauticam housing.Im presently using the Nauticam flash trigger that came with the housing,shooting manual-have always shot manual,principally because ttl was not an option on previous rigs.I am contemplating getting the Nauticam ttl converter/flash trigger-one less thing to think about/adjust while shooting.Has anybody out there used this converter?Is it accurate?Is it worthwhile trying it for wide angle as well as macro?I would appreciate any feedback,thanks.

Soft images with nikon d500 and nikkor 16-35mm.

23 September 2016 - 04:09 PM

I recently did multiple shark dives in Yap with my new d500 in a Nauticam housing.Being a previous full frame shooter I used my nikkor 16-35mm lens along with the Nauticam 8.5" dome and the 70mm ext. ring recommended in the Nauticam port chart.All of my images were soft-even some taken of a stationary moray eel on site.I tested the lens/port/ext. ring combo on land and the resulting images were sharp.I subsequently shot the sharks using a 20mm nikkor,and a 60mm nikkor ,and a 15mm sigma fisheye with good results.I discussed this phenomenon with a Nauticam rep.and his suggestion was to try adding another 20mm ext. ring to the combo.Anybody have any similar experiences/suggestions/solutions?
