  1. Hi Arnau, Good light, but .... Model position is not the best, even he is touching the wall indicating bad buoyancy, and for i.e. judge contest point of view, this photo even would be penalized... My opinion....
  2. Great Video! Bravo! I know this place. It's close to my Island (Tenerife) And video blue is Lanzarote UW blue
  3. Hi Joerg B, I have one available and only used two times... Now, I’m in Raja Ampat, and I’ll return home next week. Port is located in Spain. Where are you located?
  4. Two gears in Option 1 are not mandatory, Manual focus gear is a plus. but for me, in video usage, I don't know if it's is very useful. Pehaps is useful for the seller, due you need to pay 213€ more ....
  5. You need to differentiate between zoom gear and manual focus gear. Nauticam comes with an integrated knob, normally used by zoom gear with zoom lens (i.e. Pana 7-14mm ...) and manual focus for prime lens (i.e. Oly 60mm) With Option 1 you could have zoom + manual focus, but for video , no sense to have manual focus gear, due to Pana 7-14mm focus fast in Wide angle... With Option 2 you could have zoom gear only, but for video, I think it's enough. Then, for use Pana 7-14mm zoom capabilities, you need to buy, at least, zoom gear, that is not included in any option. ..
  6. Nauticam options for Pana 7-14mm are: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzggKvdoNvhkRlZhNTdLZzRIeXc/view Then, two ports to do basically the same. In two options, you need a focus gear, For me is a costs question. Option 1: with focus knob Port 31164-> https://www.onderwaterhuis.nl/nauticam-6-wide-angle-port-with-focus-knob-36164 --> 726€ Focus Gear 36043--> https://www.onderwaterhuis.nl/nauticam-p714-f-focus-gear-for-panasonic-vario-7-14-36043 --> 213€ Total: 939€ Option 2: without focus knob Port 36133-> https://www.onderwaterhuis.nl/nauticam-6-inch-wide-angle-port-voor-panasonic-7-14-36133 --> 512€ Focus Gear 36044--> https://www.onderwaterhuis.nl/nauticam-p714-z-zoom-gear-for-panasonic-vario-7-14mm-36044 --> 213€ Total: 725€ Saving 214€ Long time ago I had same question. I went to option 2 and saved money...
  7. Hi, I have available: Nauticam Pana 7-14 port --> http://uw-foto.ch/de/626/nauticam-6-weitwinkel-dome-port Nauticam zoom ring --> http://uw-foto.ch/de/1131/nauticam-zoomring-p714-z-fuer-panasonic-vario-7-14mm-kompatibel-mit-fokusring-36043 Used only in one dive... Nauticam Boxes included. Items are in Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain, and I could send them to Switzerland. Send me a PM, if you are interested...
  8. Bugeye is a lens that creates Wide angle effect in small creatures, but it's a macro lens, then for having a good DOF you need to close bigger than F16...
  9. I think is not comparable. With 8mm, you could do CFWA, and it's not so complicated. With 12-50 + Bugeye, taking a good photo is much more complicated, due to you need to use close aperture (F22) (speed decrease a lot...), very very close to the small subject, and flash positioning start to be critical. But is a chalenge - Bugeye have a 67mm diameter, then you need to use 60mm port, and a focus ring in the 12-50 lens (mine is a 3D ring I bought by internet...)
  10. Hi Timz I've used it with Oly 12-50mm. Difficult to work with, and positioning the flashes. Better to use a flashes diffuser domes... But it's very enjoyable combo. Some examples in my Flickr gallery --> https://www.flickr.com/photos/jose_arteaga/page2
  11. Hi Jetor, I'm using Vivid mode with my EM1 & Custom WB (5600 macro. 5200 WA) Long time ago, I tested UW mode, I didn't like the results. and my perception is that this mode usage is without flashes (99,9% of UW time I use flashes...) I don't know the results with MKII.... As an example of Vivid mode, ALL photos of my Flickr gallery (I need to upload more photos . ..) are direct JPEG from the camera. I know It's my fault, and perhaps, pictures could have better improvements, but no time (and no knowledge (:- ) to use Lightroom or Camera RAW or similar soft (some day...) This is why I put all my effort to obtain the best JPEG I can directly from the camera...
  12. About 12-40, same curiosity. On land, it's a great lens.
  13. hi Draq, Interesting post. What Dome brand and model (and port extension if needed..) are you using? Nauticam?
  14. Yes, I have it, and it takes time... And Quality image it's not their best characteristic... In my Flickr gallery, I have some examples, like this: PB240208 by Jose Arteaga Tauroni, en Flickr PB160268 by Jose Arteaga Tauroni, en Flickr PB160092 by Jose Arteaga Tauroni, en Flickr PB160164 by Jose Arteaga Tauroni, en Flickr
  15. Download last PDF manual version --> http://www.olympusamerica.com/files/oima_cckb/EM1_VER4_Eng.pdf Go to page 88 You will see the menu and option..... Camera Menu: Playback Menu Option: Displaying images rotated --> Set to off (When set to [On], photographs taken with the camera rotated in portrait orientation are automatically rotated and displayed in portrait orientation.)
  16. Hi bvanant, If you could you post a photo of the trigger instaled on the camera and the housing, could be great! Thanks in advance
  17. Hi Phil, Do you know the distance from the CMC-1 to the subject? approx, obviously...
  18. Cuold you put an image of your DIY flash? Sounds good...
  19. I'm interested on a Nauticam mini strobe. When Nauticam presented mini strobe for Panasonic last summer, I sent an email to Nauticam, asking the same for EM1, but the answer was: Dear Jose, Thank you for the enquiries and interest in our product. We have no such plan to support the flash trigger for NA-EM1 so far. For the most updated information, please keep tune withwww.nauticam.com. Perhaps They could change theirs plans... Other idea to save camera battery is to change the internalflash capacitor by other with less power (from 100mF to 5mF) I did it in a unit that I bought on eBay, and It's works...
  20. here: http://www.owfotograaf.be/index.htm There is a post sreaking about it: http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=44632&page=4&do=findComment&comment=343477 and the email: triggerfish@telenet.be But I don't know if they are selling it now... Contact him.
  21. Are you sure that do you obtains Synch speed of 1/800? Nikon's specs indicates: Flash sync speed X=1/250 s; synchronizes with shutter at 1/320 s or slower (flash range drops at speeds between 1/250 and 1/320 s) Nikon's specs here: http://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/dslr/d810/spec.htm
