  1. I don't suppose you've heard anything further about this or had the chance to try it out? I still don't see the lense on nauticam's port charts, though the lens is now defnitely available in US.
  2. Did you just reach out to thikntank for these dividers? I have the same bag and same issue, the dividers don't work very well placing them horizontally rather than vertically, and this looks much better.
  3. Interesting. Living in the Philippines for around 5 years now, I routinely get my carry-on bag wieghed, and it's almost always over the 7kg limit. This has happened flying, PAL, Cebu Pacific, and Air Asia. However, after explaining and showing the check-in agent that the bag contains mostly camera gear they have never actually forced me to check the bag, though they often warn me to next time make it lighter.
  4. Yep, so I emailed Isotta and actually sounds like it's fairly simple if you just stick with their ports. Here is what they recommended: Housing -> 40mm extension+gear (SKU 2548) -> zoom ring (SKU 3546 not yet on website)-> 20mm extension (SKU 0174) -> 4.5" glass dome (SKU 1429) This would seem to make sense as the Nauticam solution is using the 34.7mm extension with an additonal 5mm, so the numbers do seem to match. Probably not super helpful for OP as he owns the Nauticam ports already, but just wanted to post here for anyone else considering Isotta for this application. A bonus would be that the camera should be able to be inserted into the housing with the lense attached since the Isotta port opening is larger than the Nauticam.
  5. It's too bad there are no measurements listed on the website, though i imagine it would be only a few mm of extension. Hard to say.
  6. Hi Wolfgang, did you ever end up making a decision on this? I am looking to switch to an Olympus OMD-5 MkIII in an Isotta housing and have also been following your thread on using the Canon 8-15mm FE as that is an interesting option for me. If this is easily accomplished with an Isotta housing just using the sea&sea adapter to use Nauticam 120 ports that would be great, though it seems like the Zen DP100-N120 will not work which is too bad as that would make for a travel-friendly setup. I wonder about the N120 140mm dome port, there are no pictures of the base plate on nauticam's website so hard to know for sure. Maybe something like this would be required to adapt the Isotta 102 port for their Olympus housing to the 120 port and then use the Nauticam to Sea&Sea base plate adapter: https://www.unterwasserkamera.at/shop/catalog/en/product_info.php?info=p6048_isotta-portadapter-isotta-b102.html
  7. Hi, I'm Chase, originally from the USA, but currently living and diving in the Philippines for the last 5 years. I started shooting underwater perhaps 4 years ago, though took a break from photography for a while. In the past year or two I've gotten back into it and have been upgrading my kit recently while diving locally when possible with the COVID restrictions here. Best, Chase
