  1. For Sale: Sony NEX 5 Charger Nauticam NEX 5 - Immaculate Condition (No Ports) Spare 'O'Seal Selling due to upgrade to NEX 6 £550 not including postage
  2. Sorry little bit too pricey, i am only after the Nauticam NEX 6 housing
  3. Hi, I am looking at upgrading my hosing from the Nauticam NEX 5 to NEX 6. Anybody interested in selling please get in touch. I have my NEX 5 housing and Camera for Sale if anybody is interested?
  4. How about the Sony NEX 5 and Nauticam housing?
  5. Thanks for the replies, will hold out for the 100mm e-mount macro, if it ever materialises!
  6. Hi Has anybody had any experience with the new Nauticam Super Macro Converter alongside the 30mm Macro Lens for the Sony NEX? I am thinking about adding it to my setup but would be interested on peoples thoughts? does it work well alongside the lens? the thread attach directly to the port or does another attachment needed? Any examples of pictures would also be greatly appreciated. Many thanks
  7. Thanks for the link, they do a good price although when shipping and tax is added in the UK it's not so attractive!
  8. Hi all I have just purchased the iMac 27inch 3,1 i5 and wanted to increase the ram myself because apple's fees are crazy. Therefore would I benefit a great deal more with 16gb or would 12gb be suffice for photo editing (Lightroom) and video editing (final cut pro) basically trying to way the costs against the benefits? Also whilst on the subject of editing, does final cut pro recognise sony's AVCHD format? Thanks for your time
  9. I am currently using the standard 18-55mm lens and port for all close up work with a diopter for the Nauticam NEX but soon the new 30mm macro lens will be released, was wondering if anyone has had any experience with 30mm macro as i notice most folk use the 60mm or 105mm. Will the 30mm be a worthy player amongst macro shots underwater or do i basically have to get in the face of a subject to get a decent shot? Got very little experience with macro so any advice will help. Many thanks
  10. Hi I have been using the Sony NEX 5 with the Nauticam housing for 18 months now and I have been very impressed with it so far. I shoot mainly in green murky UK water and i have been waiting for the Sony e mount macro lens which has yet to be released! I purchased the diopter and it is working well for me. This is where i am stuck! I was contemplating either saving for a new strobe or getting a focus light to make that next step. I have been doing more video lately and the focus light will help for focusing on the smaller objects, that is why i thought a focus light would be the next step, you think this is the right move? I have been browsing and i realise the light and motion models are great but beyond my price range. I did notice the fisheye FIX 500 DX Led, has anybody had any experience with this model? i also noticed a mini focus light which was significantly cheaper but i am guessing the more expensive would be more of a stepping stone for me? Any advice would be much appreciated Whilst i am talking about video, the NEX 5 shoots good video in my very amateur opinion but, when using a video light do you need filters? also i am guessing you leave the white balance on auto? i tend to set my camera up in 'manual' for taking pictures and just press record for video (with the settings already set) but is there a 'normal' setting most people use to start off with? Thankyou for your time and help
  11. Cheers Adam! all things good this end, how about yourself, hope all is well! Think at the moment I might try the diopter as I could be waiting a long time for a e mount macro lens, was hoping there was a 3rd party macro lens which would work with the Flat Port, guess i will just have to be patient!
  12. @ Chris & bvanant, Thats great many thanks for the advice! Could you explain please what the diopter does, I have never seen one, although i know Nauticam does one and not totally 100% sure what it does, does it effectively bring the subject closer in when extended to 55mm? what does it make the lens equivalant too?
  13. Hi Was wondering if anyone could help me out, basically I hear that Sony are going to introduce new lens's for the NEX soon. Basically I am after a macro lens for my current set up (Sony NEX 5)with the Nauticam housing. I have the 18-55mm with the flat port but was wondering if anyone is using the Sony alpha lens (macro) with the adapter? and does it work ok and fit the port? or any other lens with there specific lens adapter? As I can see the 18-55mm is a great lens but I think I am going to need a macro, also do i go for 60mm or 105mm, new to the macro world! Any advice would be greatly appreciated or any simple solutions? Many thanks Scott
  14. A couple more, dont think they come out every time? not sure 'The Teacher'
  15. Evening All It was time for another outing for the Nauticam and Sony NEX 5 in a 3/4 degree UK Fresh water dive! and being new to this game and new to the Sony, I am finding it easier and the results becoming more pleasing. Fortunately for me, I am Adam Hanlon on side for a days tuition! For me the day could not of gone any better and finally I was able to put the jigsaw pieces together. It is always pleasing to soak up information and bounce off someone who is well established and experienced in this field!.....big thanks to Adam! We spent around 30 minutes experimenting with the wide angle port and capturing 'snells window' (think that is the expression) and man handling a trout to pose for me! I have enclosed a few pictures, any advice would be much appreciated! Many thanks Scott
  16. Thanks for the comments, i did crop them and your right I think i should have left more water space. At the moment the only dislikes on the housing itself is the selector wheel could have been protruding out to ease selection with dry gloves. I have the Inon Z240 strobe which i use on STTL. Contemplating the next step doubling up and getting another strobe. Wonder if anyone could advise if that would be the next step or should i wait and build up some more experience? Regards Scott
  17. As a beginner in photography I thought i would take the leap and try out the Nauticam Housing for the NEX 5 giving up my compact canon ixus 980. I purcahsed it from Alex Tattersall the UK supplier for Nauticam and after his excellent service and advice (inundating him with questions!!) i was very impressed with the housing and I think from little experience Nauticam have excelled. I thought i would add a few pictures, unfortunately the backdrop is no exotic location, but a cold (4 degree quarry) in Capernwray UK, which is for me a great back drop to take samples as the sea nearby was way to silty from the crappy UK weather, and I have Adam Hanlon nearby for advice! That day I had the Fisheye lens with the 4.33" port attached, hopefully soon will try the 18-55mm port. As mentioned I am a beginner so any advice would be appreciated, thanks for looking. Scott
  18. I am regrettably selling my compact underwater camera and housing as a package, the reason for the sale is because I have upgraded my camera and housing hence I am keeping the strobe and arms. The whole setup has pretty much been used for fresh water mainly and I can assure you the picture quality is great, many reviews on the Ixus 980 For Sale: Canon Ixus 980 – Great camera suited for underwater with custom buttons to set white balance and an overall excellent camera! Ikelite Housing – I opted for the ikelite housing due to it being more rugged than Canons own and ideal for deeper diving. Also included is the Inon mount base adapter with diffuser RRP 45.99 Tray – Attaches to the housing with the Inon attachment incorporating the ball joint RRP £65.99 Spare O seal for the housing 2 x wet lenses! I have the Inon UFL-165AD Fisheye conversation lens (minor scratches on the front however no affect on picture quality) RRP £424.99 Inon UCL-165AD Close up lens (Never been used!) RRP £149.99 This is a great start-up package and would make an amazing xmas present! The Peli case is not included I want to sell this as a whole package, sensible offers only please. Many thanks
