  1. Wow!! Great tips!! Thank You very much!
  2. Thank you South Carolina great tips!
  3. So its not usefull to pack the 15mm fisheye?? And just travel with a 16-35mm?? Also I have been reading that you cannot be playing around with your camera a lot of time underwater because you have to be looking at the sharks, what would be a good exposure to jump into the water to start with and dont be fooling around trying to make many changes.
  4. Hi I am planning on going to tiger beach, can anyone help me start off with the best expossure settings and strobe placement? First time diving in tiger beach and it is always good to star with some advice. I own a nikon d850 with 16-35 and 15mm fisheye. And two inon z330 strobes. Thank you really appreciate it.
  5. Mattwallace24 I am also going next week, we might be on the same boat. Belle Amie?
  6. I ordered a pair of inon z330 but they are backordered for a couple of months and I am going on that trip next week without strobes, is that a big problem?? you are close to surface and clear water, if I have no strobe what do you recommend to do? I was thinkin f8 1/400 iso 400. Also if video light can be usefull I can take one of those. Thank you! I am using a nikon d850 for the fist time, forgot to add that up! I was a canon dslr user before.
  7. I just bought the zen 230mm for the 16-35, and I am in the same crossroads as you are, dont know if It is a better choice sigma 15 or nikon 8-15. I know the sigma doesnt need anything extra, but the 8-15 needs a zoom gear on my nauticam. If I get the 8-15 will the shades of the 230mm dome show up in 8mm?? Do I need to get the 100mm dome for it?
  8. But the 230mm with the 8-15 it needs a zoom gear right? And if you open the lens to 8mm will the shades show? I dont know how easy are zen 230mm shades to be removed. I know the smaller dome port is just a twist to remove it. If you were to choose between sigma 16mm or nikon 8-15mm which one would be your choice? Thank you!
  9. Interesting topic, so for a D850 which is the best lens sigma 15mm, nikon 8-15mm, nikon 16mm?? Used with zen dp-230 or zen 100/4
  10. I have the 16-35mm and ill buy the 230mm zen dome for it, the question is in the other lense, should I get the signa 15mm and use the same 230mm dome, or get the 8-15mm with the zoom gear and the 100 dome.
  11. I think the housing comes with a LED trigger, Ill be using the finer optics.
  12. A friend of mine recommended me to not buy the 8-15mm and instead buy a sigma 15mm and just stick with the large dome. Is this a good choice?
  13. Thank you for your response. I dont know about that zen dome. But they said it it good for that lense the bigger domes will show the shades if you go below the 16mm. Yes I have selected port extensions and zoom gear for the ports but I didnt mention them, long list Lol. That pelican case as carry on, isnt it to heavy to bring it on the plane?
  14. Hi I just bought a Nikon D850 and I need some help with my equipment choices. I currently use with my old DSLR camera an Ikelite housing and strobes, but for this new camera i was looking into Nauticam and Subal. I got a full equipment setup with nauticam and just wanted someone to help check if everything is OK or there might be some items that are not that usefull. I have three lenses in mind for underwater use 8-15mm, 16-35mm and 105mm. this is the underwater equipment. nauticam housing macro port 87 for 105mm 2 nauticam 200mm ball arm 2 nauticam 70x250 aluminum float arm zen DP-100 glass dome port for 8-15mm zen 230mm glass dome for 16-35mm 45 degree viewfinder 2 inon z330 strobes with optical fiber cable (or is sync cords better?) so is this setup a good choice? do I need both domes? and i need help to figure out how to travel with this (please recommend a case) I use a pelican case now with my Ikelite housing but a lot of friend divers told me that the attract to much attention, that is heavy and that there might be a way to pack everything on a carry on bag. I really appreciate all of your help in advance, I know how much this things cost and making the best decision is important to get it right from the start. Thank you.
  15. You are right Wolfgang, thank you for your advice
  16. Thank you Undertow! And yes all major brands make great quality housings, but its a tough decision when you have to make that investment, you get married to one brand, I just want insight to make the best choice for me. Just bought the new camera I want a great hoysing that can survive a lifetime with my camera and dont worry about changing my equipment soon.
  17. Thank you very much for your response Alex! I have been registered on your newsletter for a couple of months now, I will be checking constantly to see if they upload new workshop dates, looking forward to be in at least one. Thank you! It would be awesome if you could plan a workshop in Mexico!
  18. Hi I was checking on Alexs various workshops on his website but they are all full, does someone knows if there is a way to contact him to maybe plan a new workshop or something with him. I am a huge fan of his work and I am really interested in learning from him.
  19. Subal is 1kg lighter than nauticam and it has a top window, I believe ergonomics on both are amazing. Is there a big difference in port prices?
  20. I agree Land & Sea, thank you Different question, is nauticam the way to go for the housing? Or any other brand like subal, aquatica or sea and sea?
  21. Thank you Undertow, I just bought the D850! I also looked into mirrorles cameras but I do preffer a DSLR. Ok I understand the issue with the le ses and Ill look into that 28-70 option, but seems that the 16-35 is the way to go! For the 8-15 fisheye which dome do you think will be best, I know there are smaller domes for fisheyes but some divers use a big dome with it. Thank You!
  22. Thank You Land & Sea Ill try to look for more reviews on that lense in google and wait to see if anyone here has some experience with them to get more info. Thank you!
