  1. Selling my Nauticam 180mm glass wide angle dome port because I switched primary wide angle lens and need to upgrade to the 230mm dome. Glass is PERFECT with no marks (I don't take the neoprene cover off until I'm in the water). Some wear to the underside of the bottom shade (pictured), other shades have minimal wear. Comes with dome, neoprene cover, back cover, spare o-ring and lube (all pictured). Click pictures for full res. $900 (plus PayPal & shipping)
  2. Extension ring sold. Only thing left is the Auto Magic Filter.
  3. Lens and zoom gear sold. Extension ring and red filter still available.
  4. I can't find a single real comparison review of the higher output video lights on the market. Any info on how these three lights (or any others in similar category) perform against each other? What are the real world advantages/disadvantages?
  5. I switched to the 16-35 f/2.8 GM for topside shooting so I am going to switch over for UW as well.
  6. Hi All, Switching my primary wide angle lens so selling my current Sony FE 16-35mm F4, Nauticam Zoom Gear, Nauticam N100 Extension Ring 50 w/ lock and Auto Magic 77mm threaded filter. All are in excellent working condition with normal signs of wear. No scratches on lens or Auto Magic filter. Sony FE 16-35mm F4 - $750 Nauticam N100 Extension Ring 50 w/ Lock - $250 Nauticam Zoom Gear - $140 Auto Magic Filter 77mm - $65 Click images to view full res.
  7. No filter or else the underside of the rays will go red on you. If you have video lights, bring them, but someone else said conditions are a bit tough to shoot in between the dive ops bright lights and the 100 other divers.
  8. Hey everybody, I'm looking to finally purchase some lights (strobes or video lights). I like to shoot both photos and videos, usually a little more video (did I just answer my own question?), but I'm wondering, which is the better purchase? I shoot with a Sony a7RII so I can shoot relatively well in low light. How well do Keldan lights work for shooting photos? Are they bright enough? Should I buy strobes and just keep pushing the low light capabilities of my camera? Thanks in advance for the advice/opinions!
  9. I have the GorillaPod SLR Zoom model, which is supposed to hold up to 6.6lbs. I've never tried to mount my uw housing on it, but I can try it and let you know if it can support it. I have a Nauticam a7rii, 16-35 and 8" zoom (don't know the exact weight of everything, but someone else here may know).
  10. I have an a7rii, 16-35 and 8" dome and I don't know that an a7 setup will be that much smaller than your d90 setup. May want to look at an a6000 series or one of the smaller Olympus's mentioned.
  11. Hey guys, Curious if anyone has made the switch from the Sony 16-35 F4 to the new 16-35 F2.8 G-Master? Obviously, for underwater purposes the extra stop isn't a huge game changer, but topside it certainly does. Also, wondering how corner sharpness is when stopped down on both to about f5.6-8?
  12. EDIT: Originally asked if this also applied to a7 battery, but Backscatter specifies that the battery only charges when the camera is off.
  13. Not listed, but I figured I'd ask anyway. You wouldn't happen to have a focus gear for the Sony 16-35, would you?
  14. Hey Guys, I am going to be hitting a few cities throughout Europe over a 2-week span and I'm looking for good bags to bring my dive gear, clothes and camera gear. Currently when I travel I use an Aqualung Traveler 850 and a ThinkTank International 3.0 and my equipment includes a SS BP and a Nauticam A7II housing w/ 8" dome. Obviously, these aren't ideal for Europe and I'm hoping to find something in more of a backpack style. Anyone have a similar setup they use? I found the Dive Caddy G3, but it doesn't have the greatest reviews. Thanks in advance!
