  1. Hi, Thank you for this useful info. I believe that if I have fisheye lens (Nikon 8-15) I need smaller dome. 4.5-6 inch.
  2. Thank you all for your advice. cheers
  3. Thanks. You are right. I wanted to know what is the weight of the camera rig that I have to lug to the dive site
  4. If I add the weight of all the components from the official websites - I get about 8 kg for the Z72 setup (with 8-15 and 2 strobes). I was wondering if I missed something. Edy write that his gear is 8-9 KG, So I believe the websites are correct.
  5. Hi, Thanks for the info. I am curiuos about the weight of the setup you take with you to dive, Not the weight of all items the you might carry with you to a trip for several dives. is it 8-9 Kg or more ? Thanks again
  6. Hi I am still in the research phase. One of the considarations that I have is how heavy is the setup above water. So - I know it is not a "scientific" research, but I would like to know what is the average weight in real life of an underwater photo setup with one fisheye lens and 2 strobes: Mirrorless FF camera (I.E: Nikon Z7 with 8-15 mm etc) Mirrorless DX camera (Sony A6600 with Tokina 10-17 mm) Thanks Ido

  8. Thank you very much. I definitely "reasonably mechanically minded".. So It sounds like a task that I can (hopefully..) handle. When you refer "vacuum system" - you mean the procedure before each dive, right ?
  9. Thanks. I will ask Isotta about service kit. cheers
  10. Hi I would like to buy Issota housing for Nikon Z72. However I do not have a Local service for this brand. Considering the Issota has a simple housing - Do you think DIY service is something to consider ? Thanks
  11. There is another obligation when choosing Housing and Camera. The tech of the housing in not dramatically changes while the tech of cameras changes from one generation to another. for instance: If I have he Z72 - Do I want to commit to this camera for the next 5-8 years ? Or should I go with the good old D850 or maybe wait for the coming big leap forward of the Z9..? The same goes with Sony and Canon. Definitely there is always "next generation" but still.. It is long term relatanship...
  12. And now for the "big question: I have the D850 - But I want a compact and light setup for underwater photography. Do you recommend the D5600 + Nikon 8-15 as my first underwater setup ?
  13. I have the Nikon 8-15 fisheye. I use it today for my D850. It is the same F mount I believe.
  14. Did anyone considered the Nikon D5600? It has a good sensor, It can except excellent lenses and the housing from Ikelite is small and light. Does somebody have this setup ?
