  1. Hi would like to offer 580 pounds if not already sold.
  2. Hi Edward, beautiful images. The new wide lens look wery promising but the Sony Rx 100 iv (and other compact cameras) could benefit also of a 67 mm tele-macro wet lens. It could be a perfect pair : wide and tele conversion wet lenses to overcome the limits of 24-70 lens (and 14-42 mirrorless kit lenses) . Nauticam could be the first to offer a perfect solution to all people that need / want to travel light. Regards Livio
  3. Please report the setting you are using so I can reproduce on my set up. I always set the lcd to sunny (max brightness) when underwater. In manual mode and forced flash the lcd does not dim at all changing time, stays bright from f1.8 to about f7.1, dims from f7.1 to f9 and this is more evident only at f10-11 but it is never dark (f9 on 1 inch sensor being f16 on full frame) Using manual focus the effect of changing aperture is more evident and the image become pixellated , probably Sony wanted you to be able to evaluate the deep of field. If you want manual focus , deep or dark water , macro f stops buy a very strong fosus light, I bought the FIT Led 2400 and I am using the nauticam lcd magnifier. Best regards Livio I set the lcd to sunny (max brightness)
  4. Camera in MANUAL , forced flash , iso 100- 400, you choose aperture for deep of field, you choose time for fill or freeze movement , the ttl flash do its work while the lcd stays well visible.
  5. Nauticam magnifier has a simple system : "screw in, screw out" of the entire "optic cell" , about one inch of movement.
  6. Hi , I have the same problem so I ordered and tried the Nauticam LCD magnifier for my RX100 housing. Beautiful object but the dioptric adjustment is not enough for me, I need to add a +2 lens to it. The problem is the small refraction difference between glass and water: single wet lenses loose 2/3 of refraction power. You will need about +20 ,+ 25 underwater to have the same effect of a +7 , +9 in air using a single wet positive lens but such a lens is not easy to find.
  7. Just sold an XZ1 + PT050 , now I have an RX100 and Nauticam, had good results but I wanted more while remaining as compact as possible. It is not an easy choice. Money wise an XZ2 + Oly housing will cost much less and if you do not want to add strobes or wet lenses it will be enough , on the other side RX100 is the new king of the compact cameras and a real joy to use. Out of the water you will see a difference only printing big: A2 or more, underwater only adding strobes or wet lenses, this is my two cents contribute.
  8. "Lis, Nauticam tray is adjustable camera position wise on tray, handle extension wise on tray. I can make it as close as your handle set up, no problem." Yes but I need a tray smooth and as small as possible because the palm of the right hand need to go "around" the lower angle of the tray to be comfortable: custom tray. "You left side flexible arm, that is not LocLine, is that stiffer than Locline ?" Yes it is quite stiffer but Locline is still good underwater , neither is stiff enough out of the water. Both are cheap and practical to use.
  9. About the right arm: It is possible to use all the Nauticam controls if the arm or the handle is in contact with the right side of the housing (not for small hands). I made a custom tray using a scrap of 3mm Dibond (doubled to have 6mm thickness) : a perfect material for underwater DYY.
  10. Hi Would like to buy the housing and the macro port. Located in Italy. Please email me. Thanks
