  1. Thanks for the responses. I'll definitely consider these lenses.
  2. I've been looking for some time for a dome or a wet lens to put on a GoPro to increase the FOV, something like a WWL-C or WWL-1 for GoPro would be perfect. I have tried a GoPro dome in the past but their main use case was to do split photos / videos (half in water / half out of water) it wasn't supposed to go deeper than 8 meters and the underwater image was horribly out of focus. I recently saw a new product and was wondering if any of you have tried it and if the result was crisp : AOI UWL-03 Inon UCL-G165 SD and UFL-G140 SD Open for any other recommendation. Thanks !
  3. Hi, I've been using a pair of Fix Neo 3000 for 5 years now, and these are definitely not as strong as in the beginning. Do you have a way to check the power of the light ? When do you figure out it is time to replace them ? Does changing battery improve things ? Are we supposed to expect LED die after some time ? Are high quality lights like Keldan supposed to last longer ? Thanks
  4. But what about the S1, S1R, S1H ? are there any good L-mount lenses (present and future roadmaps) or do we need to use an adaptor ? especially for underwater purpose
  5. Lots of interest here. I've been looking at the S1 and S1H for a long time, but too bulky and expensive for me. The S5 seems perfect. Is it a good system for underwater though ? in term of lenses, housings, domes etc. ?

  7. I just purchase the X-T3 for an all rounder ; and so far I like it a lot. Just wanted to refresh this thread, since I'm thinking about buying a housing for it. Anybody have some feedback about fuji underwater ?
  8. Hi, Just wanting to know if the Fuji XT- 3 is of any interest right now in the underwater photography community. I created an old topic about the previous XT- 2 but AFAIK it wasn't that popular for underwater, and I really can't figure it out : http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=59318 The XT-3 seems to get praise all over the internet right now, as best APS-C in the market, best mirrorless outside the full frame category and video capabilities better than the pana GH5 / GH5s. Actually, people seems to be even more enthusiast about the XT- 3 than the Nikon Z7 or the new Canon EOS R . Only default is just missing a IBIS, that will most probably be corrected in the ( soon to be released ? ) XH-2.
  9. There are some pretty serious rumours about an upcoming Fuji X-H1, supposed to be announced in February. it will be about the same size as the X-T2, with IBIS and oriented toward both video and photo. I'm waiting to see if I buy either this one or the next GH5s that will be announced in January.
  10. I just got a response from Nauticam . They will release the housing quite soon, and here is the compatibility chart : https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzggKvdoNvhkaUpjSGNNem0wOW8/view?usp=drive_web
  11. Excellent news ! I would be interested in the performances of fast wide angle primes like XF 16mm f/1.4, and which dome or port to use with. Also, If the lack of IBIS can be compensated with good OIS as in the 10-24 f4 OIS, I'll most definitely switch to Fuji.
  12. Interesting ! although I didn't find any dome or ports compatible with the fuji lenses on their website .
  13. Hi ! I've read some pretty nice review about the XT-2 for still photography and video ( with lots of very good lenses ) and many many people chose it as the best camera of 2016. Many people compare it to the a6500, and a majority of them prefer the Fuji. Anybody knows why there aren't that much interest for this camera for underwater photography ? There are several factor that would make this camera perform quite well : the fuji color rendition seems to be one of the most pleasant good low light photography because of APSC sensor good sharpness coming from the lack of low pass filter good set of wide angle lenses The only limiting factor would be the lack of IBIS ( I'm very interested in the EM1 mk2 just for this feature ) and good macro lenses for the X-mount. I didn't find any housing for it, but Nauticam built a housing for the XT-1 a few years ago. I don't think it was very popular as well ... Has anybody tried the XT-1 underwater ?
  14. Hi, I'm selling a second hand Nauticam NA-EM5 Housing with 4.33 Dome Port and Flexi-Tray WII. I used it just once for a 1-week dive trip a few month ago. Very good condition. Selling everything for 1500$ + shipping.
