  1. I'm interested to find out the Wetpixel community's views on current (and older) full frame cameras for underwater use. If you had the choice of any one full frame still camera on the market and expense, current lens ownership, housing choice etc. were no object, which would you chose and why? When responding, please ignore space/size/weight as a selection criteria as all full frame system housings and ports all seem ultimately pretty much the same in terms of weight and bulk. The weight of the camera itself seems to be largely irrelevant! My purpose on this is just to get an idea of what people are thinking. It has no purpose beyond this and I must confess that I am personally very happy with my current choices. Several recent discussions have raised some interesting ideas however, and I think it is a topic that would be useful to explore? Thanking you all in anticipation.
  2. Hey guys! My name is Tom Park and i'm a Dive Master and Pro Underwater Photographer from Australia. I get asked this all the time so I made a video with my top 5 tips and tricks to improve your UW photos. I hope you all enjoy and learn something from this Happy shooting! Tom
  3. I'm currently interested in making a DIY 3-leg tripod for videography. If anyone has any smart ideas I'd love to hear about them.
  4. Hello, I am looking for an advise on selection of an internal color filter(s) for Gates AX700 / Z90 housing. This housing comes with a red filter, but the filter could be changed for another color. Seller recommended me to buy both red filter (for blue water) and pink filter (for green water), as according to him "Water conditions vary due to time of day, currents and particulate in the water." Among other recommendations on internet, here is a typical recommendation: Pink Filter (for use in green water), OrangeFilter (for use at depth up to 15m), Red Filter (for use at depth of 15m or deeper). Could anyone recommend a good article on color filter selection for UW videography? I am diving only in warm water, i.e. Indonesia, Philippines, Caribbean, etc. Also, Gates' color filters are quite expensive ($138US), so I would like to know if there is another manufacturer of good 'pro' quality color filter elements? Thank you for your recommendations.
  5. hello! here for sale this YS-D2 used (about 10 dives) with some mark on the body but works perfectly. i am selling because I have now an ikelite ds161 with electrical connetion. original box, diffusers and silicone grease included 450€
  6. Could anyone recommend a good underwater videography course online, liveaboard or at a resort? I attended one at Lembeh a few years ago, and looking for something else, more advanced. Many thanks.
  7. Selling an Olympus PTWC-01 wide angle lens in good condition. The lens has a magnification of 0.6 giving a 100 degree angle of view underwater. This lens has the standard 67mm thread and will fit any housing that accepts 67mm wet lenses. This is a large and solid lens which is very sharp across the entire frame including the corners. Using an RX100 I could zoom through the entire range and the image was still sharp. The optical quality is better than the Inon UWL-100 series. A stainless steel saddle is fitted to allow a lanyard to be attached. There are a few micro scratches on the front glass - see photos. These have no effect on image quality. Priced at US$280 including shipping to US, UK and Western Europe (the item is in Australia). Shipping time is approx 7 to 10 days. Please contact me at: neilwin@iinet.net.au
  8. Curiuos to know if anyone out there is using Nikon SB 5000 in a housing?
  9. Selling a complete Ikelite set for the Sony Alpha 6300.

  10. I've been reading some posts online recommending that for "on land" shooting, the Hero 7 sharpness be set to "low" for more natural looking footage. I haven't gotten to use mine in the water yet but I'm wondering if settings of "medium" or "high" might yield better results underwater where the overall environment is less sharp than on land due to less that gin-clear visibility. Any recommendations for WB of "auto" or "native" (or some other choice) would be helpful, too. I'd be free diving with the camera a depths of 30ft of less. Thanks!

  16. I want to go into surf photography and I am looking for an underwater housing for my Canon 7d. Max. underwater depth of 5 meters + is fine. I don't need a real dive housing. Aquatech or SPL would be ideal. also looking for a dome port for over/under shots and a flat port for my canon 24mm 1.4 ii (height: 90mm). please send me a message if you have something available. cheers
  17. As deeply as it pains me to do this. I’m putting my complete, barely-used and mint-condition Sony A6500/Fantasea underwater kit up for sale. 12 months ago I foolishly tried to buy my way into a better work/life balance, with more time spent underwater. But I have failed resoundingly. So the kit has been used on a grand total of a single one-week dive trip in the Maldives in January last year, and hasn't got wet since, so it's in as mint a condition as used kit can be really. The image quality this compact little kit puts out is really quite exceptional. Comparing the results to what my dive buddy was getting with his Nauticam/D800e setup, it really wasn’t giving up a lot (with added bonus of terrific 4k video as well). The phase-detect autofocus is Sony’s latest tech, and performs terrifically (even in dim, and murky water). The image quality is fantastic, and the housing is compact, comfortable in the hands, and as easy to operate underwater as the pricier aluminium options (Fantasea really have done an excellent job with the ergonomics). It's a complete kit sans strobes. I wanted the feature-set of a fully-laden Nauticam setup, with all the mod-cons, but without all of the weight, so I went with the A6500 paired with the excellent Fantasea Housing and Ports, and Sealife Flexconnect Handles and Arms (which are great for rapidly adjusting the position of your strobes underwater). It's setup for wide-angle (Sony 10-14mm f/4), Macro (Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro), Fisheye (Sony 20mm f/2.8 + VCL-ECF2 Fisheye Converter), and general shooting (Sony 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6), with all of the necessary ports and extensions. And to make life easier (and reduce the stress of taking so much expensive kit beneath the waves) there’s also the terrific Leak Sentinel v5 Vacuum System (with LED indicators), a moisture detector in the housing itself, and an LED strobe trigger for fast and consistent strobe control via fibre optics. Fully assembled (sans strobes) the rig only weighs 4kg (that's under 9lbs!) so it's a terrific improvement size/weight wise compared to a conventional DSLR rig, and one that can travel with you safely in your carry-on luggage. The only thing that needs to be added are strobes or video lights, and you’ll be off shooting. The full list of components is as follows: CAMERA: Sony A6500 Sony FE 50mm f/2.8 Macro Sony E 10-18mm f/4 Sony E 20mm f/2.8 Sony E 16-50mm f/3.5-5.6 Sony VCL-ECF2 Fisheye Converter 3x Sony NP-FW50 Batteries HOUSING: Fantasea FA6500 Housing for Sony a6500 and a6300 Fantasea FML Dome Port A6 Fantasea FA­2 LED Strobe Trigger Fantasea FML Flat Port 34 Fantasea FML Lens Gears SEL1018 2x Fantasea FML Port Extension 25 Fantasea Light Shielding Pad SEL16F28 Leak Sentinel V5 SeaLife Flex­connect Dual Tray 2x SeaLife Flex­connect Ball Joint Adapter SL999 ­(male) 2x SeaLife Flex­connect Grip 4x SeaLife Flex­connect Flex Arm 2X Sea & Sea Fibre Optic Cables Spare O-Rings, grease, vacuum pump etc. etc. The kit cost $8,960 AUD, and I'm looking for $6,300 AUD for it (that's about $4500 USD at the moment). So get yourself some cheap happiness at the mere cost of my misery/failure! Pickup available from Melbourne, Australia. And I'm happy to ship worldwide. Cheers, Mark Here’s the kit: And here are a few shots from it that I quite like:
  18. So first off, I'm shooting with a Canon 7D MII in a Nauticam housing w/ 8' acrylic dome. Switching between a Canon 18-55mm 3.6f & Tokina 10-17mm 3.5f fisheye. I've been on a few trips now with other photographers, we are shooting in water with almost perfect visibility, ranging from 20-30m. Why is there so much dam haze in my photos? It makes the water look like there is barely 3 meters of visibility. It looks terrible, I've compared shots in the same time frame to my Gopro 6 and other photographers cameras and the difference is huge. They shoot with sony's, no extra lighting and their RAW images look amazing already, I can edit mine to look semi decent but the outcome is below average. I don't understand what's happening, I've attached some jpeg samples of unedited RAW images. Is there some setting on my camera that I'm missing, is anyone having this issue with the same model camera?
  19. Gates Underwater Z100 housing with Sony FDR-AX1 camera This is a professional underwater video system which has been used on numerous television productions as well as my show, Jonathan Bird’s Blue World, for a few years. This is one of the few cameras that can shoot 4K at 60p for awesome slow motion. I’m selling it as a complete package, with a few options. You can learn more about the housing on the Gates website The basic package includes: • Gates Housing (Retail $8,000) • Gates SWP44C super wide lens (120° field of view) (Retail $5,000) • Floatation collar for SWP44C (for neutral buoyancy) (Retail $300) • Gates Flat port FP44C for macro (retail $450) • SKB travel case (retail $300) • Top handle • White card on flexible loc-line arm • Sony FDR-AX1 4K camera (retail $4500) • Set of diopter flip filters for extra macro capability Total retail cost ~$18,550.00 ASKING $8,500.00 for the whole package. Will ship in the continental USA included. Please note that the monitor pictured on the top of the system is not included at that price. The outer element on the lens was replaced a few months ago so it is brand new and perfect. Options: • EM50 HDMI monitor (pictured on system) (Retail $2400) Add on: $1200.00 • Second camera so you can have a spare or matching above water camera: $2,500.00
  20. FS: Ikelite Nikon D800 Housing - model 6812.8 - $750 USD Shipped within continental USA, international will have to pay lowest rate. Bought from a friend who went to sony, I ended up getting a Z7 and don't want to carry a separate set of everything. Low price reflects passing on good karma for price i got it for. Does not include domes, includes many accessories. Please let me know if you have any questions. Nick
  21. Hello everyone, I am upgrading to a Nauticam D850 system and am selling my Nauticam D7100 housing and other gear. I'd like to sell as a system if possible. We can talk about breaking it apart if I don't have any luck selling it as a pack. I also have two lenses that I'm selling separately from the Nauticam system I'm parting with. System ($4500) Nauticam DA 7100 housing: Comes with a Nikonos Sync port for hard wiring strobes if you want. Pretty decent condition but like any housing put to good use there are some scratches, mainly along the bottom. Never gotten wet inside and the internal mechanisms are like new. Nikon D7100 Bodies: I have three bodies but am keeping the primary body for a friend. It has the most use. The two remaining bodies are very clean and have not been used nearly as much as my primary, which, again, I'm keeping. Cosmetically, the bodies are very clean. I am open if someone does not want both bodies, but my personal preference is to have a back up. Each body comes with battery, charger, cable, strap and manuals in their original Nikon boxes. Nikon 10-24 DX lens: I used this lens on five dives only and on a trip to Hawaii topside. Otherwise it is essentially new. You will need a dome port as I am keeping mine. Also includes the appropriate Nauticam zoom gear. Zen Mini Dome (non removable shade version). In very good condition. Glass is flawless with no scratches, body has minimal cosmetic wear. Tokina 10-17 lens. I have only used this lens underwater. When not diving it is sealed inside of the housing and stored in an ice chest. Very clean, no visible wear. Includes Nauticam zoom gear. Kenko 1.4X tele-converter with extended zoom gear. Does NOT include the Nauticam 20mm extension ring required to use this device. I'm keeping that for my new system. Two Inon Z240's. I have four of these and the two for this system are the back ups, so they have less use and are cleaner than my primary strobes. Each strobe comes with a ball mount. Still, there is some minor scratches on the body but nothing that in any way affects form, fit or function. Each comes with a diffuser and spare o-ring set. Does NOT include fiber optic cables. 800 Lumen Fisheye Fix aiming light. The light works great but the lock switch does not prevent the dial from rotating when not in use. If it gets bumped it can turn the light on. Comes with two batteries and charger. Also Selling: Nikon D810 body only: $1700. Cosmetically clean. 30,714 shutter clicks so a lot of bandwidth to go to the expected life of 200,000 shutter actuations. Comes with battery, strap, manuals, cable and original box. Sigma 20mm 1.4 ART. Beautiful lens. Bought it for astrophotography but never really ended up using it. Been sitting sealed in a case for just under two years, so it is really in perfectly new condition. $600 FIRM I have photos of everything listed above. Just shoot me an email if you want them.

  22. I used this set-up as a beginner and moved up to a mirrorless recently. I am asking $125 + shipping (within the US only) for the whole package - tray/arm, strobe, camera with one battery & charger plus the Olympus housing. It is set-up and ready to use. The FE3010 is a 12 megapixel point-and-shoot camera with 3x zoom, several auto modes to choose from including video capability and underwater modes. The Strobe I paired with the camera is a manual Sea n Sea YS-27DX. It is very easy to operate underwater. This is my go-to camera and strobe when in a 'panic' mode.
  23. I went to a smaller set-up and no longer need. I had 3 dives with it. Great for macro and video! Selling as used, but is in immaculate condition! The new FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW, The perfect compact video lighting companion. This new iteration of the Neo Mini features a video pleasing 1000 lumens of white light in a 95° beam angle providing great coverage for today’s wide-angle lenses. A single press of the Neo Mini’s control button and the beam angle switches to a 25° spot beam to isolate the lighting pattern for dynamic macro results. The Neo Mini is powered by a rechargeable Li-ion battery system that can be swapped with a fully charged battery between dives. Dive ready at a minuscule 160g, the Neo Mini rounds out with an automatic shut-off feature when a strobe flash is detected, SOS mode and distress mode. All-together, the FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW is the perfect lighting solution to any video genesis. The FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW has a beautiful 95° wide beam cast in even arching smooth beam with no hotspots or edge drop-off. Spot mode made easy! Just a single press of the Neo’s control button and Neo’s beam angle switches from 95° to 25° 600 lumen spot beam, perfect for macro video. The Mini’s narrow spot beam works to isolate small subjects from their background. Leaving the background of your composition unlit and dark provides excellent contrast to highlight the foreground subject. FIX Neo Mini 1000 SW specifications Lumens: 600 Spot/1000 Wide BurnTime (min): 100 Spot/90 Wide Beam Angle: 25° Spot/95° Wide Charge Time: 2.5–4 hrs Swappable Battery: Yes Adjustment: 25% steps Depth Rating: 100m Weight: 160g (air) Mounts Included: YS SOS Signal: Yes Model Number: 30395 MSRP: $299 USD
