  1. Hi I am struggeling a bit with the length of my flatportcombination with the 105VR2. I have the impression that there is too much space in front of the lens for the optimum use of wet diopters. I have a Nauticam D750 housing and I now use a compact base, 20mm extension and the 30 compact port. The effective internal length from base to glass is 90mm. Since the 105 sticks 80mm out in front of the housing, there is a full 1cm room between lens and port glass. Couple of questions: 1. Is this too much (for the use of wet diopters)? 2. There is a dedicated port for the 105. The macro port 87. What is the exact internal length of this port? Is this 87mm?
  2. Hi, has anybody tested the Inon UCL-165 or UCL-330 with a 105 on FF? How do they perform? I have the SMC2 and Subsee +10, but I would like a weaker diopter.
  3. Since there are no flipadapters availible for the Nauticam Compact Port 30 without the 67mm threat, I made one myself. And again plumbing parts and some hardware come to the rescue. I admit, It is not as pretty as a slik black adapter from any housing manufacturer, but it sure is sturdy enough to carry a heavy diopter such as the SMC-2.
  4. Thanks, No not on the site from Aquacam. But I already did some drawing, so I have to look very nice to my best friend to 3D print it. Thanks for the link to Saga, I keep it in mind.
  5. I am in for a new closup lens, probably the SMC-2. But I have a Nauticam house with the compact 30 port with extensions. This flatport doesn't have a 67mm thread on the end. I can't find a flipadapter that does fit on this port. Do you have a solution how to fit the SMC-2 on this port? https://www.backscatter.com/Nauticam-Compact-Underwater-Flat-Port-30
  6. The problem is to find out what the optimum extension is. Especially when you mix brands, it is an issue. I just bought a used Sea&Sea FE-dome (S&S 56401) to use with the 16-35 on my Nauticam housing. I asked Nauticam what the correct extension should be, but they didn't responded at all. At the store we compared the Nauticam 8,5" dome and it appears very similar to the Sea&Sea, so we decided to use the same extension as Nauticam recommends with the 8,5" dome. I have not tried it in the water yet.
  7. Little bump on this thread: That is not nessecary. Most SLR's you can set on interval timer shooting and let it fire away as long as you want.
  8. Hi, I use the D750 in a Nauticam housing. I recently purchased a Sea&Sea 9,7" dome mainly to use with the 16-35 f4. What extension is recommended for this lens? The portchart from Nauticam says 90mm with the 9,5" Nauticam dome, but I also see others using the 70mm extension with this lens. Kees
  9. Glad to hear everything went well. I was on the MY Obsession, we had a fun week with the diveclub. We went for some hammerhead-action, but they stayed a bit too far in the deep. I guess the water was a bit too warm for them. Greetz, Kees
  10. From what port in Egypt is your liveaboard leaving? I am also heading for a liveaboard tomorrow. I am leaving from Port Ghalib in Marsa Alam. I am happy to lent you an Ikelite portlock from my old housing if we can arrange to meet somewhere. I am in Port Ghalib thursday night around 23.00h (I guess). Greetings, Kees
  11. I also made the fiberconversion with the D7000, and i am very happy with it The only thing I still miss, is a remote slavesensor for optic triggering.
  12. Thanks, I knew the article I was just curious what slavesensor or trigger you used.
  13. Nice, How do you trigger the strobes?
  14. Do I like??? This is SUPERB!! I realy like the first one. No danger of toe or feet knibbeling with these little critters?
  15. To D7000 or not. Like so many, I am actually waiting for the D800, but that can easy take another year. So, what to do? My D80 is realy getting at age, and the performance of D7000 is very interesting. So I made a quick comparisson in PS, and I see enough possibilities to fit the D7000 in a D80-housing. I think I will have a try, once I have my hands on a D7000.
  16. Same here with my D80 But: "The announcement should be in Summer of 2011" that means housings by the end of 2011. That's a long time... but I think I will wait for this one and not to go for the D7000.
  17. You still can use the 10-17 on FF. If you shave off the hood, there is no vingetting from 13mm. Just do a Google on "lens shave 10-17" and you will find what you need. http://www.360pano.de/en/tokina-sigma-nikon.html Good luck shaving
  18. Ah, sweet Nikon! This will be the one for me.
  19. Usefull info, thanks Never really cared about this too much..
  20. Wow, Impressive first year, very good. Kees
  21. I was just about to ask the same question. It would make my future housing choice for the D800 a bit easier.
  22. Some rough sanding of the balls and clamps did wonders with mine.
  23. D700x, That is definately the one I am waiting for. (FX+vid) But I guess that will be another year before camera+housing is availible. On-Topic: Search for lens shaving. When you shave off the hood from a 10-17, you can use it from 13mm. http://www.360pano.de/images/tokina_5dklein.jpg
