  1. Wolfgang did you try the diopters with the 60 mm too or was that unworkable? Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  2. Interesting Bill. I actually have the kenko 1.4. Have used it a bit for wide angle stuff but not thought to try for macro. Thanks Wolfgang - nice to hear about your experiences. Yes that's what I was wondering Adam whether the longer distance would prove hard in poor vis. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  3. @ChrisRoss thanks for the clarification. Yes really I'm interested in getting better images of tiny stuff so looking at the diopters which I was concerned about having enough focal length for with the 60 mm. So that led me to looking at the 105 mm. I'll look into the 85 mm too - I hadn't considered that one. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  4. @vlada thanks very much for the reply and info (only just spotted it). Great pictures. Nice to hear it works for you with the 60 mm. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the input@ChrisRoss@TimG and@davehicks. Do you mean you find the 60 mm better Chris? Tim and Dave, reassuring to hear it has worked for you in poor vis (great picture Dave!). One of the things that appeals is that it will work with wet diopters for super macro. This could get expensive! Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  6. I have a Nikon D500 (crop sensor). I usually use a 60 mm macro lens but considering getting the 105 mm. I know it has a longer focal length and needs a strong focus light. My local area is the rather murky Bay of Fundy. Curious to see what people's experience is using this lens in green water. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  7. Thanks all for the advice. I hadn't really thought about working distance and obviously need to. I'll look into the lens combinations suggested. Although may just stick with current set up as not sure I want to more macro for a whole dive - the wet lens appealed as could flip it down. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  8. Looking at getting a wet lens. I have a D500 in an aquatica housing. I usually use a 60mm lens for macro. It looks like the +5 will magnify 1:1.2 wheras the +10 will magnify 1:1.5 so thinking the 10+ makes more sense. Any advice on which to choose? Is a flip holder worth it? (The aquatica one is more than the lens!). Thinking I may go for the aquatica system but open to other suggestions. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  9. I moved from. D300 in a subal housing to a D500 in an aquatica housing a year or so ago. Main reason for choosing the D500 was to keep using my Tokina 10-17 which I love for WA. I moved from subal as impossible to get serviced here (Canada). I still use my subal WA port with an adapter Aquatica made and it works well - only issue is I can't fully zoom out as i get the port corners as the adapter adds length. I might eventually get an aquatica WA port. Apart from that I've been very happy with this set up. I did look at changing to a mirrorless slr but it actually worked out more expensive as I would have needed new lenses. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  10. Just wanted to let people know I got this sorted. Actually wide angle ended up working better for this trip anyway (thankfully!). I got hold of aquatica after the trip. The lens pushes straight down onto the port ledge (basically as far in as it goes). It only seals on the front o-ring really. Just taken housing for a test dive and seems good (although forgot how floaty empty housing is so judicious use of rocks required to make it comfortable to carry!). Thanks to everyone who advised.

  11. Thanks for looking. Yes it looks like there are instructions if you buy glass. Hope aquatica get back to me today as we won't have internet after tomorrow. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  12. Does anyone have instructions for how to replace the lens on the aquatica tapered macro port (port number 18430 – the tapered mini macro one)? I am on a trip and it somehow popped out in transit. I didn't even realise it was removable! I can't get hold of aquatica or find instructions online. Thanks, Claire
  13. Well I heard back from Aquatica today and they are going to send a replacement pump. Turns out there is a particular technique to pumping to depressurise so the breakage could have been user error - they have promised to send video instructions. Thanks Aquatica!

  14. Thanks all. It is actually the whole black end of the pump that has come off and I have now managed to lose that bit (was out on the boat with me but has vanished). The white and black parts fell apart very soon after I got the pump but i have been holding it together and making it work. I know that the backscatter pump does fit the housing connection (tried a friend's) so at least I know what connection it is now! I guess I need to bite the bullet and just buy another aquatica pump. Hope it stays together this time! Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
  15. The pump for my aquatica sentinel system broke. I need to replace it but it wasn't very durable so I am looking for another pump that would be compatible with the system. Does anyone have any suggestions? Someone suggested a wine making one might work......Picture attached. Sorry not sure what the connection is called. Sent from my ONEPLUS A3000 using Tapatalk
