  1. I have a whole set up I'm looking to sell. https://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?/topic/65295-for-sale-olympus-omd-em5-mk-ii-micro-43-camera-mzuiko-24-70mm-f28-pro-lens-and-nauticam-na-em5ii-housing-w7-acrylic-dome-port/&do=findComment&comment=413143
  2. I upgraded to a full-frame Nikon Z6 a few months ago so I’m selling my Olympus OMD-EM5 Mk II camera, lens and Nauticam housing. I bought the housing in March 2018 and only used in on 5 dive trips in the last year and a half. I’ve kept it meticulously clean and maintained it well so it remains in excellent working condition. Including some freebees. Original cost was over US$4,500. I’m selling it all as a lot for just a little over 50% of cost: US$2,400 - FIRM Original dealer invoices available upon request. Willing to split the cost of shipping.

  3. Interesting - I didn't think of that. And, yes, my dome is 180mm.
  4. Please indulge me in this brief rave about my new Nikon Z6 and pro lens... I recently upgraded my rig from a very capable Olympus OMD EM 5 Mk II four-thirds mirrorless camera, M.Zuiko 12-40mm f/2.8 pro lens in a Nauticam housing with an acrylic port to the Nikon Z 6 full-frame sensor mirrorless camera, NIKKOR z 24-70mm f/2.8 S series lens in an Aquatica housing with 9.25" mineral glass dome port. Returning home from my first dive trip with the new rig (Buddy Dive in Bonaire), I imported the images into Lightroom and carefully reviewed the details in my shots. I was completely blown away by the level of detail, clarity and sharpness I was able to get. As good as I thought the Olympus camera and lens were, it pales in comparison to the quality of the output I'm now able to achieve with my new Nikon camera an pro-level lens (AND glass port). I'm able to get about twice the number of usable shots with my new rig compared to my old one. It's definitely not a cheap setup but if your budget supports it, I would definitely recommend taking a look at the Nikon Z6 with NIKKOR z 24-70mm f/2.8 S series lens*.

  5. I've used both - starting with an 8.5" Nauticam acrylic port then upgrading my camera and rig to include an Aquatica 9.25" mineral glass port. Yes, the glass is a little heavier topside but underwater the weight distribution makes the rig with the glass port more neutrally buoyant and balanced, causing less strain on my arms over time than with the acrylic port (which takes a little bit of effort to continue pointing it downward as the dome and air bubble inside is about 1 lb (2kg) buoyant). Also, over/unders are vastly superior with the glass. I haven't had a single issue with water spots nor reflections from the sun - leading to many more usable photos than I did when I was using my acrylic port.
  6. Hello All, Quick intro... My name is Scott and I live in Virginia (USA).I got certified in the '80s, lived for a time in Grand Cayman in the late '80s but only became an active, avid diver since my wife got certified in Grand Cayman in 2017. Since then we've taken diving trips to Cancun twice (diving the Cenotes and snorkeling with whalesharks), Hawaii, West Palm Beach (Blue Heron Bridge), Bonaire (Buddy Dive Resort) and Roatan (Coco View Resort) (ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT!!). We have upcoming trips on the Cayman Aggressor V, Coco View Resort (Roatan, Honduras) and Wakatobi (S. Sulawesi, Indonesia). see https://drive.google.com/file/d/1xuDUDl-owTKqFR3LayWOGIxF5UVXrs4h/view
