  1. Hi, I am selling my NA-36132 Nauticam 4.33" dome port. It is for N85 housing systems, so it works for any micro four thirds housing for Olympus and Panasonic cameras, such as the NA-EM1ii It can be used with the Panasonic / Lumix 8mm fisheye lens. It also works well with the Olympus 14mm and 20mm pancake wide-angle lenses and Olympus 12mm prime lens, and Olympus 8mm fisheye F1.8 when using a 20mm mini extension ring. Included are the dome, neoprene cover, rear cap and O-ring. The dome can be send from Australia or in a few weeks from Germany. Pick up, transfer on Australian or Germany bank account or PayPal accepted. The dome has a few signs of usage in form of light scratches at the bottom of the shade and at the dome. They can't be seen at all on pictures, even on wideangle-macro shots. Original price AU$820 or €500 Asking AU$500 or €300
  2. If you are still interested, mine is up for sale now. Let me know, and I can send you some pictures. Cheers
  3. Hi, I have the Nauticam 4.33 dome (Used with Pana 8mm). It is a great setup, particularly for getting really close. I will sell the dome in mid July when my new rig arrives. Sorry, will need it until then
  4. Hi, I am selling a Sea&Sea Y-sync cord 03470 (N type), which connects 2 Sea&Sea Strobes to Housings with a Nikonos 5 Pin Bulk Head. Selling due to change of system. The sync cord works perfectly, has never been flooded and only has a few signs of usage on the Nikonos end and the dust cap which have no influence on the performance. It allows continuous shooting, so no missed images of moving objects anymore. Works with any standard Nikonos 5-pin bulkhead and Sea&Sea underwater flash with 5-pin connection, such as Sea&Sea YS-D1, YS-D2. Included: Sync cord with O-rings and dust caps. Looking for AU$175 Shipping from Australia on buyers expenses.
  5. Thank you very much for the replys and hints to the reviews. I love my 4.33" with Pana 8mm since it is so small and light. Very easy to travel with, especially when I am also taking my dive gear, tripod, drone, etc. and it is possible to get very close. However, I finally would like to take great split pictures. The 4.33" is just to small for it as soon as you have a few ripples / waves. Of course bigger domes are better for split pictures due to more space between lens and water. But changing to another lens (Pana 8mm-> Oly 8mm) to be able to use the large dome (Zen 170mm) is a big investment, which at the same time makes it harder to travel with. Simply upgrading to the Nauticam 140mm which can be used with my Pana 8mm is definitely the cheaper and lighter option. But will the dome diameter upgrade be big enough for my taste, I don't know since I never tried a large dome. Thank you for the very informative reviews in the magazines. Unfortunately there is only one sentence regarding split pictures "I found the Nauticam 140 mm port worked well for split images in relatively calm water, using f/8 and above." with the Oly 8mm + Nauticam 140mm + extension ring. By judging from you model pictures above it indeed looks pretty good (with the 12mm and so presumably even better with the 8mm) at least in very calm conditions. I have to think about it, but will probably go with the 140mm dome due to its overall benefits compare to 'just' easier split pictures. Thank you very much everyone
  6. Thank you Phil for the great example pictures of the 8mm + 200 dome and 7-14mm + 200mm combination. I want to upgrade from my Pana 8mm + 4.33" mini dome. I am struggling between the Oly 8mm + Zen 170mm or the Pana 8mm + Nauticam 140mm. Could you please also show some examples of the Oly 8mm + 140mm combination. Why to do you generally prefer this setup over the other ones? Is it because it is a bit easier to travel with and you can get closer for macro-wide angle images? Does this setup also require extra caution regarding curved water lines as you described above? Thanks a lot.
  7. In case you are just using optical cables to trigger your strobes you won't need an offset vacuum valve. However, if you want to use electronic sync cables in order to trigger your strobes with much faster recycle time, or if you like to use an external screen, then you may need to think about such a valve. In case of the Nauticam Housing for the Olympus EM-1, there is only one accessory hole. This is usually used for the vacuum valve. So, since I want that my vacuum system tells me that my housing is perfectly sealed before I step in the water, while using electronic sync cables for the strobes, I need this offset vacuum valve. As said, this totally depends on your housing. The NA-EM-1 housing has a M14 accessory hole, while others have a M16 hole (Btw. there is also a step down adapter in case you got a M16 offset valve but want to use it on a M14 housing). Some DSLR housings have already the bulkhead for the sync cord and the separate vacuum valve installed, so there is no need for an offset vacuum valve. Hope this was helpful. If you are just interested in the standard M14 vacuum valve, then I am happy to sell you mine. Just let me know. Cheers
  8. Hello, I am searching for the Nauticam M14 Offset Connector Extension Valve with Vacuum Valve ( Nauticam number #25059) Willing to buy or swap against regular Nauticam M14 Vacuum Valve. Thank you very much for any hints or offers.
  9. I am selling the Olympus 12-50mm lens + Nauticam Zoom gear so that the entire zoom range and ALSO the Macro Mode of the lens can be used. Check it out over here: http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=58704&hl= Price is negotiable and I am also willing to sell the zoom gear separately.
  10. I am selling two ULCS DB-BL14 Double Ball Buoyancy Arms by Ultralight Control Systems with 14 inch in length, 2 inch in diameter and 14.8oz buoyancy offset. The ends show some small signs of usage, which are normal for Ball Arms. Original price was 190€ for both. I would like to get 140€ for both. Please ask me for the international shipping price. Cheers
