  1. Any idea what trackable post cost to Thailand would be? EMS if you have it in Spain.
  2. Hi Andy, Only just seen this. Post/courier to Thailand is tricky at the moment. Let's leave this for now. But many thanks! Cheers!
  3. I want to try one of these. Anyone got one they want to sell?
  4. 8 1/2 acrylic dome and 20mm port extension have sold. Thanks!
  5. Shots of my 8 1/2" dome. It's in pretty good condition. No major blemishes. Apologies for posting here but I couldn't work out how to post from a URL and didn't have the option of just dragging, like here!
  6. Nauticam NA D800 with standard viewfinder, $2000 US. Leak Sentinel vacuum system, $150. 180 degree finder, $950. 230mm Zen glass dome, $1000, Nauticam 8.5" acrylic dome, $550. Custom 6" hemispherical acrylic dome $220. Custom flat port, $400. Port extension 50mm, $320. Port extension 20mm, $280. Sigma 15mm fisheye, $460. Nikon D800, $650 (18000 clicks on new shutter) Zoom gear for 16-35mm f4, $208. Flash arms, Technical Lighting Control: 1, 8" section, 3, 6" sections, 6 ball clamps, 2 dovetail fittings.A professional rig delivering beautiful 36MP files. Compromised health and fitness necessitates sale.
  7. I use a D800 in a Nauticam housing. It is excellent, completely reliable and produces files big enough to crop if I need to. But with (my) advancing age it's getting a bit heavy for me. I have several ports, the 180 viewfinder etc. So I am looking to downsize. So my housing will be on the market shortly. You can find me on a Google search!
  8. I use a Nikon D800 in Nauticam, which does everything I need. However, it's far too heavy for me in my dotage. I am tempted by the Sigma fp with a Nikonos 15mm in Pawel Achtel's new titanium housing. I seldom like the fisheye look and don't shoot macro.
  9. Thanks guys. I hadn’t heard of anyone else having much success with the Nikonos re focus registration. I’m glad you have! The circular fisheye was a complete turn-off for me; a gimmick when a full frame equivalent of the 10-17 would have sold so many more. What a missed opportunity.
  10. I'm looking at the new Nikon APS-C Mirrorless, yet to be announced and thinking how light and compact it might be with a Tokina 10-17 as a "jump in the water, there's something interesting" camera. Or perhaps the new Sigma full frame camera adapted to a Nikonos 15mm lens. (Pawel?) I only shoot wide angle these days and my lovely Nikon D800 in Nauticam is too heavy for me now. I don't want to go to a smaller sensor than APS-C. Any suggestions or ideas?
  11. I had forgotten about this earlier thread (thanks rollin) from 5 years ago when I was trying the same thing. Neither the X-sync socket nor the hotshoe work if the pop-up flash is elevated enough to fire. Push the flash down a bit and they will work, but the on-board flash will not. Anyone know if there's a small mechanical switch inside controlling this and if it would be safe to disable it?
  12. A problem has arisen! When the pop-up flash is up, the hot shoe doesn't work!! I need both to work at the same time. Anyone know how to resolve this?
  13. One thing to watch out for; a 10mm coarse hex machine screw runs out of thread before the head. So you can't tighten it enough in a Nauticam hole to compress an O-ring sitting in a groove cut under the head of the machine screw. Either use a big fat O-ring or better, run extra thread right up under the head of the machine screw, so it will tighten sufficiently on an O-ring that better fits the groove.
  14. That's true, but at 20 times the cost. But thanks for making me aware of this option. It seems there is no room in the housing for an X-synch cable plugged into the camera, so I will be using a modified hot shoe to get flash sync to the Nikonos bulkhead connector.
