  1. Each gear print is for a particular housing and lens combination. The dome protectors are for the 6 and 8 inch domes on Seafrog housings. If you have those ports I will post the stl files.
  2. Nice solution. 3d printing is being under utilized for underwater gear.
  3. I am using low profile tie wraps to secure he gears. The gears are designed to have a gap in the barrel and gear section. I had an issue on the SeaFrog housing that the gear on the zoom knob would spring in but the shaft stayed in place.My first version would hit the shaft, so I put a notch in the bottom of the gear to accommodate clearance. What material are you using? I also have in the works a 3d printed housing for the Osmo Pocket.
  4. I recently got into 3d printing and cad design. I printed some dome port protectors and gears out of flexible nylon. Also printed some rings to cover the lens info that can reflect off a port.
  5. This type of correction lens is discussed in Lawrence Mertens book "IN-water photography" published in 1970. By this time Ivanoff had a corrected wide angle lens"I think in a nikonos mount" The book goes deep into the physics of the port science. It is one of the definitive books on underwater photography physics. It scan be found used on amazon.
  6. I am interested. email me @ tobyarmstrongus35@hotmail.com and discuss details.
  7. I am interested in the port. Do you think it would work(without vignetting) with a 7.5 fisheye on the em5 housing ?
  8. That should be the direct link. I tried it and it played(slowly in chunks) on my computer. googlr search" ch 15 mobile" then on there site search rigs or red snapper.
  9. http://local15tv.com/news/features/featured/stories/explosive-rig-removals-impacting-sea-turtles-dolphins-376.shtml Here is a link to the ch 15 news story about marine destruction when removing oil platforms.
  10. Will be posting just underwater footage of Snapper on Youtube. Still crunching video, will be up shortly. Search" Toby Armstrong Cameraman" and you can find it.
  11. Just finish shooting the underwater footage for a news story for Ch 15 in Mobile, AL on the killing of Red Snapper in Gulf of Mexico during oil platform removal Report ran Monday the 15th , a longer more in depth version will run on the 24th. Filmed with Gopro. About 15 ft. vis. http://www.local15tv.com/shared/news/features/top-stories/stories/wpmi_eyewitnesses-speak-out-explosive-federal-mandate-killing-snapper-695.shtml
  12. Great shot. Where was it taken?
  13. Just delivered 3D video footage to the Aquarium of the Americas in New Orleans. Footage shot around the oil platforms of Louisiana. It is to be used in a new exhibit named "Geaux Fish". One inters a diving bell and views the video through a dive mask.
