  1. I recently changed from a turtle trigger to the Nauticam mini flash trigger. I bought a new mini trigger, the sticker says Sony A7R3 compatible, but I have a Sony A7R2.  The manual also says it will have a green light, and only flash red when its battery is low.  I have tried 6 different 2450 batteries and always the same result - it starts green, but on 3rd blink it stays red.

    When i try and use it with my Nauticam housing, i can ONLY every get one cable to work on the left port.  However, if i test both cables with the camera and trigger OUTSIDE the housing it all works fine, both cables and both LEDs on the trigger.

    I guess there is something very slightly different with the A7R2 housing to reduce the light from the trigger enough to stop it firing except the left side and the one cable.  I had no problems until i tried this new trigger BTW. 

    Any ideas please?  I did read somewhere that it was recommended to install a "Prism" in the camera to boost the trigger signal.  IS this a thing?

  2. Getting a few messages directly on this.


    I am advertising in a few places - not looking to drop the price after one day.

    If its still unsold after two weeks i would consider a lower offer.

    Please let me know where you are located and if you can pay by paypal.


    Thanks in advance.

  4. Great thread.


    Started on a disposable film camera the first season about 12 years ago. If i only knew snorkelling with basking sharks would not happen every season! The pics were terribad but i was hooked. Tried GoPro for a few years loved editing, lost it on a teaching dive. Bought a Nikon AWS 30m jobbie and loved the results until i took it to 32m and flooded it. Picked up a Sony Rx100ii and went hard at it for a few years in a Nauticam with some InonZ240s. Really enjoyed the results but only saw the flaws and decided to move up again. Sonys menu and system really is easy to use so i am currently working towards buying a housing for the A7Rii - - > not sure where ill end up but enjoying the journey.
