  1. Hello, All sorted, I did buy the finder 2nd hand and it seems the previous owner put a piece of clear plastic film (similar what a brand new phone has on) over the front glass. I simply peeled off and now the view is great. A massive thanks to Alex Tattershall at UW Visions (nauticam dealer) for pointing me in the right direction. Thanks to all who have taken an interest in the post. Regards Brian
  2. Hello, I hope you are all well, I have Nauticam 90 degree finder and use it all the time. However, it is becoming a little hazy and a big distraction when using it underwater. I pulled back the cap and there is a plate with four notches. I also notice that a small layer of glass has come away on the right had side (picture enclosed). This is way outside of the field of vision and I don’t think it will affect anything. I do have a lens tool that will most likely get the plate off and on again. My question is, is this a fix I could do myself i.e strip down, clean glass and put back together. Or is something more specialist that needs a pressure test and factory seals ?? I have just asked the same question to my local specialist Unwater Visions in the UK (they are very good). Very interested to hear if this has been an issue for anyone else. Thanks Brian
  3. Hello, I know this has probably been asked before, but I have a Nauticam DA-850/Nikon D850/Retra Strobes x2. I was looking at exploring the possibilities of using HSS, but I am not aware if this can be achieved. I am sure I have seen before a bolt on bit of kit that will achieve this. If anyone has any further information, please share. Any links would be useful. Thanks in advance. Regards. Brian

  8. Tim hi, Thanks, no probably not, I will probably try with wide open which give the best effect and just play around with shutter speed/ISO and Strobe Power etc. Some experimentation is needed, I do have a Nauticam SMC-1 close up dioptre so that worth a try. Thanks
  9. Hello, I should have posted this in the original post, but looking to achieve as attached. https://www.uwphotographyguide.com/shooting-with-vintage-lenses I have worked with vintage lenses topside many times, they are quite specialist but they can produce lovely and rather niche images. I have found a company that makes a focus gear as well. Life is now slightly easier. Thanks Brian
  10. Hello, I am toying with the idea (I have found one) of getting a new version Meyer Optic Trioplan f2.8 100mm for UW lens for use underwater and on land. This will be used with a Nikon D850/Nauticam Set Up (I have the macro dome port/rings etc). I was hoping someone on here has had some real life practical experience and can give me some guidance, so please advise on the following ! The lens has a minimum focusing distance of .9m or 35" which is a concern as most of my diving is in the UK in not so good conditions. Can an extension ring be used to bring the images closer to make more of a macro lens ? The lens is manual focus which is a drag, but not the end of the world, is there a focus gear available so I can focus from the camera etc ?? Any other information would be helpful. Please note I do have a Nauticam SMC-1, I reckon this could be used ?? Thanks Brian
