  1. I'm looking for the following Nauticam items: 50 mm N120 extension ring. 21150 8.5" acrylic dome port 18802 If you have either of these, please contact me. Charlie
  2. I started with Nikonos back in the 80's. Because clients wanted to see the condition of the underwater structures I was inspecting, I switched to video in the 90's. I had a couple of Light and Motion video setups. Now that those inspections can be completed with a GoPro, I've gone back to still photography. I've got a Nikon in a Nauticam housing and have been experimenting with many different lenses. Good Dives, Charlie
  3. Been a while. Did you sell it? Charlie
  4. I posted a while back about gears I've created for zoom lenses that will ideally remain dry inside a housing. I'm thinking of creating some accessories that will live outside the housing. Nylon is supposed to be ok to get wet, but not remain submerged. Has anyone made dive accessories that stand up to extended stays in salt water?
  5. I've heard this is a good strobe for a point-and-shoot camera. It's new in an opened box. https://www.ebay.com/itm/224223057990 Charlie
  6. This is a gear for a Nikon 70-180 zoom in a Nauticam housing. My CAD program can out put in many different formats. I sent a .stl off to have this one printed. It works well in my housing, but could use a few tweaks. Charlie
  7. I've been creating 3D parts using TurboCAD, then sending stl file off for printing. The gear I posted earlier cost $34 to print. I'm learning about the possibilities and limitations of the processes and the materials. It's quite fun.
  8. Posted this zoom gear a while back. Thanks to the magic of Sharpie, this part is black now.
  9. Just saw this post. Is dome still available? Contact me at cnothoff@gmail.com Charlie
  10. Yes, Mr. Onokai. I am well aware of your nearly unlimited supplies.
  11. I've got a few of those that I plan to replace with Ultralight style. I might have 4. Charlie
  12. A friend recommended a Nikon 70-180mm macro lens. Nauticam doesn't make a zoom gear for this lens and it's kind of tricky to fit. I broke out the CAD software I use for underwater inspection reports and got up to speed with developing 3D parts for 3D printing. There are a few changes that I'd make, but it works really well. It's nice not to be limited to most common lens choices. Has anyone else experimented with 3D printing accessories?
  13. Is extension ring still available? Thanks, Charlie
  14. Did this viewfinder sell? Thanks, Charlie
  15. I have found that a high quality mask defogger on the outside keeps bubbles from adhering to lens. This was happening to me when I took those shots looking up kelp stalks (above me where my bubbles go). If I was still shooting AF, I would get some great abstract shots. Those other methods work, but I hate to think while I dive Charlie
