  1. I am interested in the Subsee if you decide to sell the items individually
  2. Hi, So I finally have time to play around with my camera and have found a few things that I would appreciate some advice with. I have the nauticam housing with a Lumix 7-14 lens, the 12-50, and a +7 bluewater diopter. When using the 12-50 lens, I am noticing a significant loss of sharpness especially in closer focus photos though in wider angle photos as well. Most of the macro photos were taken at f22 (iso 200, 1/250) which may explain some of the loss of sharpness. But some experimental photos at f16 didn't sharpen the photos. While I know it is not a dedicated Marco lens, I still expected it to be sharper. Has anyone else experienced this? And more importantly, have you experienced this with the 60MM macro lens (this is next on my list of purchases). I know f22 is high but I really like the black background it produces with the nudis I have found in Roatan. I have also been experimenting with over/under short with the Lumix 7-14 lens and the Nauticam dome and would like some advice as to the best settings. The photos I have taken seem to be a bit soft as well. I am also having focusing issues with the 12-50 lens. In many of my photos, especially of a turtle I found on my last dive, the eyes or intended focus area seem to be out of focus and the adjacent area in focus. Is it best to move the focus points through the "main menu" or use the F2 button to access the "magnified box" and move that around? Thanks for any and all advice, Caroline
  3. HI, I am looking for a bit of advice about using the EM5. I was lucky enough to find dolphins yesterday on the way back from my dive. I had about a 10 minute encounter with two bottlenose and snapped as many photos as I could. However, almost all of them were out of focus. I was shooting on Shutter Speed Priority at 60 and 80 with the camera set to auto focus. That is what I used to do with my old camera, a g12, and never had any issues. So my question is: what is the best focus setting to use for quick moving open ocean species like dolphins, mantas, and whale sharks?

  5. How old is the housing and how many dives has it done? What is the warranty like on the housing? Is it transferrable?
  6. Hi, Are you interested in selling just the diopter?
  7. Hi Everyone, I would appreciate some help. I am trying to decide on ports for the Nauticam housing but the information is a bit conflicting. Can you put the 12-50 lens in the Macro 60 or Flat 72 ports without vignetting at the widest setting? It seems to say yes on here but the photo stores say it can/will vignette. Thanks
  8. Hi, Just wondering if anyone has a complete OM-D in a Nauticam they want to sell. Or lens and ports. Thanks
  9. Hi Everyone, I would love some advice. I currently have a G12 and am looking to upgrade. I have narrowed it down to the OM-D and either the NEX 6 or 7. Which is better? I have read every comparison I have found and poured through this forum. But I am still undecided. I will be going with a Nauticam housing either way. The NEX 6 has a 60% bigger sensor than the OM-D which should mean better image quality. And it is cheaper. So why is the OM-D so much more popular among underwater photographers? Are the lens for the NEX series really that bad? The reviews I have read are not good, especially for the 16 mm wide angle. I have not found any underwater reviews for that lens with the fisheye conversion.And while we are comparing things, is the NEX 6 better than the NEX 7? I live in Roatan and dive a lot so this will be more than a part-time hobby. I will be using it equally for wide-angle and macro. We have had an influx of whale sharks lately but I am also a Blenny/Nudi fan so versatility is very important to me. Thanks for the help, Caroline
