  1. Interested in the 60mm, port and gear also if you decide to split up.
  2. Camera and housing sold! Kraken and tray still available.
  3. Maybe a dumb question but can you elaborate on the "older 4/3 ports" and which Inon 170mm dome you use that works with the Oly 8mm? Obviously, going with a dome that gives me the most flexibility in lens options would be great. The Zen glass 170 is compatible with both the Oly 8mm and Pany 7-14, but more expensive vs going with the Nauticam acrylic 4" dome which only works with one or the other. Also, just want to say I appreciate all the great suggestions and sample shots! You guys rock!
  4. Good point, Jock! Mostly warm water stuff in good vis 3-4 trips a year - Mexico, Central America, Caribbean, the Keys plus some cave stuff but that's usually video. Definitely agree on the workshop, I did a few short sessions with Cathy Church in Cayman and it was totally worth it. Thanks for the link...I really like Kelli's write-ups! -Travis
  5. Thanks, Chris! So, does anyone recommend a fisheye? Seems pretty unanimous for the 7-14... Speaking of, obviously the 2.8 on the Oly 7-14 is nice over the 4 on the Pany, but is it really worth the extra cost? Pany 7-14 $800 + Nauticam Acrylic Dome $500 + Zoom Gear $200 = $1500 (all new) Oly 7-14 $1300 + Nauticam Dome $1000 + N85 to N120 adapter $400 + Extension Ring $180 + Zoom Gear $200 = $3080 (all new) That's a big chunk of change for a few extra stops, plus the upgraded glass dome.
  6. Wow, great shots! So, it sounds like the 60mm is a definite for macro and I was leaning heavily towards the fisheye, but I keep hearing you guys loving the 7-14...but the 7-14 gets expensive real quick with the glass dome and the $400 N85 to N120 port adapter! I dont think Ill be happy trying to do it all with just one lens, so Ill probably go with two. I do have dual strobes, so that wont be an issue.
  7. Selling my TG-5 setup as Im upgrading to an OM system! 😁 TG-5 and PT-058 housing both 6 months old and like new condition. Comes with all original accessories including warranty card. Camera was only used inside housing so the screen and body are in great shape. Also includes 2 extra Wasabi batteries and extra charger. Kraken KRL-02 wet wide lens also 6 months old. Great wide angle lens and really adds to the TG-5s abilities. Comes with original case and a Bluewater neoprene cover. There are a few scratches on the glass but nothing deep enough to show up in photos. Sealife double tray with arms and ball joint adapters. About a year old. Great shape and all release buttons work well. The ball joint adapters have typical wear marks from carrying handle shackles. This is a really great rig for the beginner to intermediate photographer. I really learned a lot with this setup and gave me the confidence to move up to mirrorless. $1000 USD buyer pays shipping and PP fees. Would be willing to split up but Id prefer to sell the camera and housing together.
  8. Thanks, I hadn’t thought about a 7-14 for WA. How wide can you get with that vs the fisheye?
  9. I just got a Nanak 935 roller hard case from Amazon. It got better reviews than the Pelican and so far seems very rugged. I’m still playing around with organization but I think I’ll be able to fit everything but maybe my arms, especially if I get the lid organizer. FYI, I did not get the ones with foam.
  10. Hi! Been reading a lot of good recommendations for folks getting the most versatility out of their kits, but Im basically starting from scratch and looking for lens/port recommendations for my EM5 MkII with Nauticam housing. The only lens Ive got is a 14-42 EZ that I got on the cheap just for topside shooting. I just got the Nauticam housing but no ports or gears. Im upgrading from the TG-5 so this is my first mirrorless rig. So, if you were starting over which lenses and ports would you go with to give you the most flexibility without breaking the bank? The Oly 8mm and 60mm come highly recommended. As does the 12-40 for topside. Some like the Oly 30 as well and if I got the macro 45 port I think I could use the same port for both the 30 and 60 with an extension, but is that even worth it? I know its kinda a broad question but I appreciate any advice!
  11. Hi! Travis from down in Louisiana here...been diving for a while now and now I’ve got the photography bug...bad!!!
