  1. Great story of a Diver finding a lost Panasonic GH4 with Zen Dome in Maldives. Diver was reunited through Nauticam's serial number registration system and returned his $5000 of gear. Great testament to Nauticam's quality and vacuum leak protection system. http://petapixel.com/2015/04/07/this-camera-survived-three-months-at-the-bottom-of-the-ocean/
  2. Does anyone here use the Nauticam 7" Dome with the M.Zuiko 12-40 Pro?? Its seems that it would be a easier (no extensions to attach) and cheaper solution than the Zen domes. Also, wouldn't it work with the upcoming 7-14mm Pro?
  3. Apparently I missed something... It was on my Flip Board/Photography feed this morning as a "New Product"... But, I see that the review was for 2010 now that you bring my attention to it.
  4. Olympus has just introduces a ultra wide (weitwinkel) (weitwinkel) angle M.Zuiko 9mm-18mm 2X Zoom lens for Micro 4/3. Here is a review, looks like it would be a good alternative to the Panasonic wide angle lens. I love M.Zuiko Glass and the review of its quality looks good topside. http://biofos.com/mft/m9_18tst.html
  5. Want to buy a Nauticam Macro Port 65 for my M.Zuiko 60mm Macro lens with focus gear. Also need a Nauticam 7" dome port with Zoom gear for my M.Zuiko 12mm-40mm PRO lens.
  6. Want to Buy the Nauticam 7" dome port #36129 and zoom gear for my M. Zuiko 12mm-40mm Pro lens. Also, need Nauticam Macro Port 65 for M.Zuiko 60mm Macro lens with focus gear.
  7. I bought a Nauticam NA-EM1 housing with vacum moisture protection installed from member, ScubaNomad, in the classifieds. His description of the housing was accurate and included all accessories from Nauticam. Other than blacking out the Nauticam Logo with paint, it would have been hard to say the housing wasn't new in the box. Dan shipped the housing the next day after receiving my payment, USPS Priority Mail, arriving in 2 days. He was easy to speak with and answered all my questions regarding the housing by email and phone. I found him to be an honest, accomodating Seller who immediately took care to ship out my housing and offer his experience and suggestions on using it. Fantastic Seller!! Highly Recommended!!
  8. Nauticam housing acquired. Need port and focus gear for M.Zuiko 60mm Macro and 7 inch Dome port and focus gear for M.Zuiko 12-40mm Pro lens.

  11. Here is a video of Diving Darwin,,, and Wolf.. alittle compilation. I have many others, there are 5 albums of my Galapagos adventure in my Albums basically detailing my experience with the Humboldt Explorer live aboard. Feel free to look and ask questions if you like? Yes, the gloves are a Kevlar model of the CyberSkin. They did wear very quickly, but, I still use them as they are so much better for feeling the camera housing controls. I watched many other Divers struggle with the thicker gloves ant their cameras. Buy a couple pair in case you tear one on a boulder, but, one pair should get you through a week dive excursion. Just depends on the currents you get while your out at Wolf & Darwin. I think this video will definitely Fire You UP!! Be sure to click the HD button. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10202925368198586&l=89298422658872665

  13. 7mm suit is just right.. I spent a week diving Wolf & Darwin. As one other Member has said, its not so much about the temperature, rather, the boulders, rocks, stone fish & Morays. The more protection you have the better. I also highly recommend gloves, really, they are more of a necessity. I bought and enjoyed the 2mm Oceanic Cyper Skin glove for protection and pretty good feel of my camera controls.
  14. I have the lens, however, I would be interested in your price for the port and focus gear if you are willing to sell separate?
  15. Video from my excursion to Isla Guadalupe, Mexico to dive with Great White sharks. Voyage to the island on the "Islander". My dive master was Jimi Partington with Doc Anes as a supporting marine biologist. Highly recommend this group for the professionalism, skill, and safety concerns when diving with one of nature's most formidable apex predators. Taken with a tiny Panasonic T3 camera,,, the Panasonic T1 was my first underwater camera of any quality. I've since moved up to a nice Olympus TG-1 system with a UFL-2 strobe and Nocturnal Lights focus/video light system. Currently, looking for a housing for my Olympus EM-1 and looking forward to a much improved image quality for my future adventures in the Blue.
  16. Want to buy a used Nauticam or Aquatica housing for my Olympus OMD-EM-1 with a couple ports and focus gear for a M.Zuiko 12-40mm Pro lens and the M.Zuiko 60mm Macro lens. I'm not particular about the cosmetic condition of the housing, however, it must be functional without any damage or issues that could result in flooding. Ports of course, I would prefer a "no scratch" dome for the larger 12-40mm lens and no scratches on the port for the 60mm lens. If anyone has a housing you are looking to sell or a port and gear for one of the lens please post or message me with your information and offer price. Thank you!
  17. I just purchased a new Olympus OMD-EM-1 and I'm looking to buy a used Nauticam or Aquatica housing system for it. I've been diving for the past 32 years. I've caged dived with Great Whites in Guadalupe, snorkled with the Whale Sharks of Isla Mujares and spent the most wonderful times in the currents of Galapagos. In recent years, as technology has improved I've been bitten by the underwater photography shark and after using a Olympus TG-1 with a UFL-2 strobe and Nocturnal Lights focus light for the past 2 years in the ocean, I've ditched my land loving Nikon, purchased a "do it all" Olympus EM-1 and want to get a Nauticam housing with a port & gear for the 12-40mm M.Zuiko and 60mm Macro M.Zuiko lens before a trip to Komodo. I've been visiting this website in the hopes of finding a used housing for my camera, but, I can't seem to post a "Want to Buy" in the classifieds. How can I do this? Thanks for a cool website for underwater photography. Been an admirer of Eric's photographs for years.
