  1. The sad day has come where I am selling my beautiful camera baby. She has travelled to several different countries around the world, had her first work gig as an underwater photographer and taken thousands of absolutely stunning photos.


    Sony a5100 with 16mm pancake lens and Sony fisheye converter inside a Nauticam housing with 4.33” fisheye dome port.


    Really great setup for taking over under photos. The colours of this Sony camera are absolutely unreal, and she is good to go as is. No need for any additions, besides of course a strobe or two for diving.


    This setup is just over 2 years old and has been amazing. She was my setup while working as a photographer diving every day so there is a few signs of love (slight discolouration where your fingers sit, faded writing) but all seals and buttons are in perfect working condition. The dome port is scratch free and has been replaced within the last 12 months.


    I am also including:

    original kit lens for the camera- 16-50mm, (camera and kit lens retail $550)

    Sony 18-200mm telephoto lens, (retail for $900)

    Samyang 12mm F2.0 lens which is AMAZING for landscape and Astrophotography! (Retail $360) This lens has only been used a few times and took some spectacular night photos before I upgraded my system.

    (Sony 16mm pancake lens and fisheye converter retail roughly $600)

    Also comes with one Sony battery and one top max battery,

    Charging cable,

    Nauticam o-rings, lube Allen keys, lens caps for all lenses, two dome covers, Sony camera carry bag and a few other lens bags/cases.


    This camera setup is perfect for someone who wants to have an epic kickoff to their photography experience. I am only selling her because I have just upgraded my system to a full frame model. You can get her wet as soon as you get her and she will take perfect photos from the getgo!!

    PM me for more info/ photos or if you have any questions.

    Will be so sad to see her go, but she needs a new owner who will love her as much as I do.





  2. I just purchased a Sony a7rii with 16-35mm f2.8 in a nautical housing and I am still trying to get4 the hang of my photos. I was using a 5100 with fisheye lens previous to this new setup. I am struggling to get my photos fully in focus. the first shot was ISO2000 1/250 f/18 and it is completely focused underwater but on the surface is still not quite in focus. the second shot was ISO250 f/5.0 1/240 and I quite like the shallow focus look which was achieved here. Any advice given on how to achieve full frame focus when shooting split shots would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance for any help for this new photographer :) 



  3. Hey there! :) 

    My name is Ashlee, I am an underwater photographer on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. I have just purchased myself a brand new Sony a7rii in a shiny new Nauticam housing with two Inon strobes. I love coming to this site to find advice on shooting techniques and to find inspiration on future shoots. I love learning from other photographers and I am open to any advice given.
