  5. I have been using one of these dome covers for a month or so on my WWL-1B. I have a focus light mounted on the hotshoe mount on the top of the lens which gets in the way of the velcro straps somewhat. Also, the velcro straps are a bit short and could use another 1-1.5" added to them.
  6. For those considering moving from MFT to FF, here's my experience with moving from the Olympus OM-D E-M1 II to the Sony A7C.

  10. Looks like our timing didn't align My view is this is one of the best compact kits available, and I absolutely recommend it. After diving with this kit for a year, I find myself ready to add more ports and lenses for local shore diving. With the recent price increase of Nauticam, my budget is guiding me to consider all housing options. I have not decided on a specific housing or camera yet, or whether new or used. I plan to stay mirrorless and full frame though.
  11. For Sale: Nauticam Housing + Sony A7C Full Frame + 28-60mm +WWL-1B. $6,775 Purchased new in 2021. Well maintained. Soaked in fresh water after each use and blown dry afterwards. Never flooded. Camera never used above water. Kit contains every part required to run the Camera, 28-60 lens and WWL-1B with bayonet mount. This equipment shows minimal signs of wear including: The usual Nauticam water marks. Light scratch on housing LCD view port as shown in photos. Wear marks on outside of WWL-1B as shown in photos. Small rub on WWL-1B glass as shown. I don’t notice this in my photos, but it’s possible that different light angles may show it slightly.

  12. I purchased the Kraken Solar Flair Mini from Dan, and wanted to mention that he was excellent to work with on the sale. Great communicator. Light was packed well and arrived in better condition than I expected.
  13. Thank you, Adam. I had a very similar dive today. Your post was in my head. I tried to stay higher in the water column and with the sun behind me. You can't always pick which side the dolphins pass on, but I did get some where the pod cooperated . Haven't looked at the shots yet though.
  14. That's an interesting nuance that I did not know before this discussion. I somehow thought you could put red back into the photo/video at any depth by using a filter.
  15. I think using a filter is worth a try, but will dedicate the dive to ambient, unless i removed the WWL and used a flip. I wonder if these same shots would WB significantly better if shot with a Canon or Nikon or different Sony model.
  16. Has anyone on this forum purchased a Marelux housing yet?
  17. Here is another shot (before/after processing) on the same dive with the sun behind me at approximately the same depth, but further away from the dolphins.
  18. I am fairly close to the dolphins ~15'. Lens is 28-60mm @60mm with WWL-1B. 30-40' deep. I white balanced this in Lightroom. Started with the eye-dropper on the dolphin's white belly, then fine tuned with sliders.
  19. Here's an export of the RAW file before and after correcting. Is the original too underexposed?
  20. Thanks, Chris. I currently have my WB set as 'Auto', and only capture RAW. Does setting custom white balance underwater actually give you the ability to get better white balance out of the RAW file? Or does it just make it easier to fine tune? The reason I am asking is i find my ambient RAW files have a 'magenta' tone to the water that is difficult to remove without altering the white balance of the subject. Wondering if all cameras suffer from this, or only specific brands/models.
  21. For those who have experience processing RAW files shot with ambient light in blue water with FF mirrorless cameras, can you give any observations on which brand/model is easier to accurately white balance RAW files in post?
  22. Good call. Thanks, Phil. Is it fair to say then that the same large dome for 16-35 rectilinear can also be used for a fisheye zoom? I know if you were going to be strictly using the fisheye zoom, you could go with a smaller dome, just wondering if the larger domes also support fisheye.
  23. Looks like Marelux Sony 28-60 port might possibly support the Nauticam bayonet mount. I didn't see confirmation of support, but the notches look similar to Nauticam ports. https://www.marelux.co/products/macro-port-32 Also the Sony 90mm macro port. https://www.marelux.co/products/macro-port-97 Canon 100mm macro port. https://www.marelux.co/products/macro-port104 Nikon 60mm macro port https://www.marelux.co/products/macro-port-71 Nikon 105mm macro port. https://www.marelux.co/products/macro-port-97
  24. To summarize, this is what I'm picking up from this discussion: Full frame cameras are more susceptible to soft corners with rectilinear wide angle lenses than crop sensor cameras. In general, the larger the dome, the sharper the corners for full frame. Higher f stops sharpen corners, with the tradeoff of having to use higher ISOs. Corner sharpness is not an important factor when shooting big animals offshore, because softness in blue water corners is not noticeable. Corner sharpness in CFWA with reef backgrounds is noticeable. Larger domes are better for splits. Zooming in improves corner sharpness. A 16-35 at 35mm will have sharper corners than at 16mm. Not all wide angle lenses perform well underwater in dome ports.
