  1. Another option is to try with the TRT electronics trigger, it works with the YS-D3 strobes according to their webpage.
  2. Plus one or two steps of dynamic range. Surely that will do the trick for me.
  3. Hi, what about the Sony compact RX100-VA? Nauticam still sells the housing for it and you can add macro and wide wet lenses.
  4. Hi, I’m sorry about it, I don’t think that S&S cables make any difference. I use the Howshot 613L + Retras + UWT trigger without problems. Regards, Joss
  5. Out of curiosity,I would like to understand why wet add lenses work on mirrorless full frame cameras but not on dsrl cameras. For example, Nauticam WWL-1 works with full frame Sony but not on dsrl. Nauticam is announcing the new WWL-C with the Nikon Z-50. Doesn’t the Z-50 has the same sensor of the D500? Is the distance between the sensor and the main lens that important? Kind regards, Joss
  6. I would recommend: San Benedicto – El cañon: Wide angle or Fisheye San Benedicto – El Boyler: Fisheye for Mantas and dolphins, they get super close. Roca Partida: Wide angle and maybe no strobes? For Hammerhead shoals in the distance Socorro – Cabo Piers: Fisheye you will see mantas and dolphins Socorro – Punta tosca: Fisheye or Wideangle Regards, Joss
  7. I believe D500 is not a back illuminated sensor. I would not expect many UW photographers upgrading from D850 to D880. Or from D500 to D580. Maybe for those going full frame, the especulated D880 might be appealing. In my case, current situation does not allow me to think about upgrading any time soon. Joss
  8. I shoot underwater with a D500. I only do photos and the specs of the rumored D580 don't make me think about upgrading anytime soon. Maybe a back-illuminated sensor with higher dynamic range?Anyway, I’m just not ready for mirrorless and I’m very happy with my D500 and current lenses. I wonder how Nikon splits its sales between cameras and lenses.
  9. Hi, have you seen this: NIKONOS ADAPTER FOR NA-A7II/A9 https://www.nauticam.com/products/nikonos-adaptor-for-na-a7ii-a9 Take a look on this article by Scotty Graham: https://www.stevehuffphoto.com/2016/12/05/the-sony-a7r-underwater-with-the-iconic-nikonos-15mm-lens-by-scotty-graham/ Maybe you were after options for the "more recent" autofocus nikonos lenses... Regards, Joss
  10. With the 105mm VR and the Port 87 you still have space to add a "dry" dipoter. However, there is no problem with wet diopters. Same with the 60mm AF-S and Port 60. I have no try dipoters with this lens. You can also use the 105mm VR wit the Port 60 and a 20mm extension. Regards, Joss
  11. Hi, how do you plan to use them? 300mm might be to long for typical macro shots. I pretty much use 3 setups on a Nauticam for D500. All of them slighty negative but confortable. Macro (60 & 87 ports): 2 Inon Mega Float Arm S + 2 Aquatica 8" buoyancy arm Fisheye 100mm port: 2 Inon Mega Float Arm M + 2 Nauticam 300mm arms Fisheye 230mm port: 2 Aquatica 8" buoyancy arm + 2 Nauticam 300mm arms with 1 sitx jumbo insert each The big diameter of the Inon Mega floats is perfect for a computer and also to carry macro diopters. Regards, Joss
  12. Hi Pavel, Does it means that if we have the previous firmware on the converter it is better not to update the Retras's firmware? Kind regards, Jose
  13. It is funny they have patented the multi selector, it looks super complicated and I doubt anyone copying it. However, it works great on my D500. Let me know how it goes with the silicone grease, the play / F2 lever in my housing is also sticky.
  14. With Uwtechnics trigger / converter, you just have to set the dial to position 6 (Retra) and select the mode (Manual, TTL, HHS) on the Retra Strobe. It is super easy.
