  1. Hi.I'm not an expert, but a lot of content in the forum shows that housing is not an accessory to underwater photography. The camera is an accessory to the housing.If you want to use Sony A1's current highest quality expensive camera as an accessory for underwater photography, I think a good quality housing and proper setting will produce good photography results.Before I knew this forum, I used a 14-24 lens and an 8-inch dome port for the first full-frame camera Nikon d800 dslr, but the quality was not good. Compared to the existing small compact camera underwater photographs, it was difficult to find good points in the photographic results and I was disappointed.Later, I read and studied the forum, used Sigma 15 fish eyes, and improved the quality of the picture. If I had known Wet Pixel Forum before purchasing equipment, I wouldn't have made a double investment.Currently, it is used underwater as a full-frame Nikon mirrorless.If you use an expensive high-end beast-like camera like Sony a1, I think the camera will perform only when you use a dome port suitable for housing and setting for good image quality.
  2. I use 8-15mm, ftz adapter, z6. Nikon is known to have lower auto-focusing performance than Canon or Sony.However, in a wide angle, I have no regrets in the environment I use.Properly, if you raise the aperture, the quality is clear from the center to the periphery. Usually, aperture f11 is used a lot.It is more comfortable to film than the d800 I used before.However, the f mount 105mm feels slow.I'm curious about the performance of the new 105mm z-mount. If there is a review on the expansion soon, it will change to 105mm z-mount.
  3. Thank you for your information.I am also using Z Mount, but I am using FTZ Mount 8-15mm fish eye lens and 105mm macro lens.I was very interested in the combination of 14-30mm F4 lens and SEA&SEA filter, but I was hesitating because there was no review.I wonder the result of the picture of the higher aperture.
  4. It was not the same product, but the distance between the screws of the aquatica housing handle was wide, making it impossible to mount the inon lanyard adapter.
  5. The FF settings I have...D800 sigma 15 and Z6, 8-15 weigh 8kg to 9kg.The arms are 5 + 8 inches long and the strobe uses z240 or z330.The arm has a buoyancy of 10 bar.The dome is an 8-inch acrylic dome port in both settings with a slight weight added to the front.The weight of my DSLR and mirrorless is not much different.
  6. I also have an experience of having a problem communicating mail with Aquatica.I got a reply, but I was rather confused by the inaccurate answer.For example, the newly purchased housing accessories were different in shape from the manual and could not be installed. This is the connection accessory of the lens adapter and the button that detaches the lens.When I inquired via email, they said there was no problem, but the service center put it together again and solved the problem.The service center said the assembly of the accessories was reversed.I understand the frustration of this forum creator.
  7. If I take a picture at 8mm with the extension ring I'm currently using, there will be no vignetting if I remove the lens hood and dome hood. Nikon 8-15 lenses vary in circular size depending on focal distance. I didn't see the vignetting in either focus.
  8. Hello. I'm writing again to wrap up this topic. aquatica say, Both are good for image quality, but with extended rings you can get better results. As a result, the Aquatica portchart does not sound like the optimal extension for the lens. Aquatica recommended the shortest extension ring, but fortunately, the dealer had several expansion rings in stock, so we were able to test them. As Aquatica said, instead of the shortest extension ring, I buy a longer 21.5mm product number 48463 ring. I buy an extension ring that is 5mm longer than Aquatica recommended. 21.5mm was also non-vinetting, and it has quite a spare length. It is difficult for me to identify the difference in quality between the extension ring recommended by Aquatica and the 21.5mm I chose. I blame Aquatica for having customers check the extension ring themselves. Port Issues Quality Issues Assembly Issues it's the worst for me, scuba diving and buying a fourth house for 15 years.
  9. Hello Adam.... I needed some advice English is not my first language, so please understand if there is word bad.I already wrote it, but you are my big fan. Your writing and video helped me a lot with the theory of underwater photography.Aquatica sent me messages first and exchanged a few emails.I believe that button manipulation problems will be corrected.As you may have already read, it's about the 8-15 lens extension.At first, I received an e-mail from Aquatica that they would talk to the engineer about the 8-15 lens and let me know. The next e-mail I've received is... "For the 8-15 lens,we have some customers using without an extension ring and some use with one of our shirsest rings,both getting good results. For sure with an extension ring you will need to remove the dome shade,so you will not get vignetting. Next week I do have an order shipping to my dealer in Korea,in the shipment we can include this short extension ring,and you can give it a try." "shirsest" is probably a typo. shortest So I compared all the expansion rings of other brands. Of course, I expect the difference in distance from the sensor to be different for each brand, but just for my reference.First of all, the Canon 8-15 and Nikon 8-15 use the same extension ring for most brands (Nauticam has 10mm longer Canon).But I think Aquatica's extension ring is probably the shortest 48456 (16.5mm/65in).By the way, there is a port chart in Aquatica to use 48463 (21.5mm/.82inch) for Canon 8-15 lenses.So it's the weekend and it's dawn in Canada, so you won't get a reply, but I sent you an e-mail saying I want to test two, 48456 (16.5mm) and 48463 (21.5mm) if possible. But there are some questions here.1. As Aquatica said, if vignetting occurs when using a short extension ring at 15mm, we should use it without an extension ring. Diving would be hard without a dome hood. 2. According to the Nikon 8-15 lens review, I saw a post in your article that the vignetting got worse because of the expansion ring. July 6, 2017https://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?/topic/60171-nikon-8-15mm-in-the-house/ Could you share your opinion on this? 3. For reference, compared to Aquatika's Canon Lens Chart, Canon 8-15 does not have any benning for the dome hood, but I actually do not understand if Nikon expects that even 5 mm short expansion rings will cause vignetting.I want you to let me know your opinion. Thanks a lot.And I always watch your posts and YouTube well. Thank you.
  10. It's a little different from the extension ring, but I think I found the cause of the button failure myself.The ok button, down button and right button, which are not working as shown in the picture, are slightly higher on the camera body, and the rear connections of the housing are made lower to suit the camera height.With the camera mounted on the housing, pull the lower part of the camera a little bit with force to operate the aperture wheel normally.And if you infer that the upward button always works, it seems that the bottom of the camera body goes deeper into the housing than the designed one.Maybe it's a camera alignment problem. I think the lower part of the camera body goes in a bit more than the angle designed in the aquatica housing. However, when I close the back plate of the housing, the camera is pushed back, so I couldn't check if the button was working properly.I'm going to deliver this to Aquatica.
  11. thanks you Tim I started talking to Aquatica by e-mail.I'm not sure, but I think Aquatica housing is around 20mm with the naked eye.But it's a little too much for an individual like me to measure. Perhaps too long an extension ring will cause vignetting. I think Aquatica will teach me a good solution. First of all, I will wait while solving the button operation problem.
  12. thanks comment Chris I've tried removing the eye piece, I've tried removing the trigger, and so on. can't working aperture wheel, down, left, ok buttons i am send e-mail to aquatica about 8-15 Extensions Ring, video... i hope the problem will be solved. In fact, I believe that button problems and wheel problems will be corrected and solved after service.However, I hope Aquatica's port chart for 8-15 Nikon lenses will not be revised and misunderstood like me. It's a different story, The Canon 8-15 lens needs to be extension ring to the Aquatica Port Chart.
  13. I think I was a little carried away from the subject.
  14. Hello Adam.. I'm a big fan of you. I watched all most of Adam's youtube wet pixels videos. ( my english not good. so i used youtube translate) I chose mirrorless for live view because my eyesight is not good, and because I am familiar with Nikon camera, I planned Z series and studied for a year.when using 8-15 lens Subal, SeaCam, Nauticam and Issota(focus FTZ extension ring) houses need expansion ring. sea&sea and Aquatica do not need expansionI bought a housing three months ago and a camera a week ago. But I wouldn't have chosen Aquatica if, as Adam said, an expansion ring was needed. ring, the port chart says. And it took about 70days over to get to Korea after ordering Aquatica Housing. The delivery is very slow. The dealer said Canada is delayed in production because of Covid. After considering nauticam housing and Aquatica housing, I chose Aquatica because of the no need expansion ring. I am very disappointed in Aquatica. When a camera is pushed into a housing, the front wheel only works in one direction and the opposite direction does not work. It's slipping.Therefore, if you press the camera with strong force with my hand, the wheel works normally, but if i shake the housing a few times, whell working is have problems with wheel operation.And the joystick right button doesn't work either.Aquatica seems to have quality or QC problems.I told the dealer to bring a house and a camera, but it takes two hours by car. In fact, I am disappointed and angry at Aquatica. Anyway, thank you for Adam's opinion.
  15. thanks ChrisRoss your advice.. of course, because the lens and dome port are close together, there is no vignetting on land of the lens hood and dome port hood in the 15mm, and in the 8mm, the lens hood and dome port are removed and there is no vignetting. In fact, I had a job as a scuba diving instructor for more than 300 days a year, but I haven't had a chance to scuba dive since last year because of Covid. so sad.... In the near future I will try without expansion port as you advised in pool. However, unlike other brands of housing, Aquatica still has doubts about the lack of expansion ports. And compared to photos of other 8-15 housing, Aquatica housing are definitely close in domeport and lens. i hope there is no optical damage.
