  1. As NEX shooters will know all too well, there is a lack of lens options for the system. Up until recently, there has only been one dedicated wide angle option (16mm + FE) and one Macro option (30mm). It’s also possible to use the 18-55mm kit lens with external (wet) diopter for a closer perspective. Any other macro options? How about the Nikonos 80mm with extension tubes? I’ve recently completed two dives with my NEX 7 and the Nikonos 80mm. To improve focus distance, I attach two extension tubes . My quick impressions: Its super macro on the NEX! For NEX users, ‘nuff said. It’s fun! It’s a real challenge to shoot. I’ve had a lot of with this lens. I feel is a high risk, high reward type set up. Its best suited to calm conditions where you have plenty of time to shoot. i.e. Blue Heron Bridge. Several shots were on a recent night dive with a bit of current. My % keepers were much lower. A magnifying viewfinder is a necessity. Since you have to judge focus yourself. With extension tubes, the only way to focus is to rock in and out. With this lens, and underwater in general, I have not found the focus peaking on the NEX to work very well, even with focus lights. Maybe I’m doing it wrong…. It’s heavy. Having the system more neutral would help the handling a lot. Even at f16, DoF is razor thin. The resolution isn’t great. I think this has always been the issue with the 80mm, but the 24mpx on the NEX 7 doesn’t help it along. There is plenty of detail, just don’t crop down or pixel peep. First, the set up NO, NO. Look THIS way. Flounder eyes. Moving objects are difficult but not impossible. Both could be better, but for my level, not bad considering the limitations of the set up. Sometimes, even stationary subjects can be difficult. Hey, I meant to focus on the pinchers and not the eyes. I swear! When it works… Guitar fish eye, Corals, Worm, Blenny.
  2. Hello all, I am not new to underwater photo/video, but I am new to using a digital camera set up, and I'm looking for any advice on the camera focusing set up for a Sony NEX with the 16mm with the VLC-ECF1 fish eye adaptor lens, inside the Nauticam housing with dome port. When I used to film using a Sony PC5 miniDV camera in a Oceanhaus housing with 120deg wide angle port, I used to focus the camera to an object in the distance, leave the camera set to manual focus, and then once inside the housing with the wide angle port, everything from about 1ft / .3m to the distance was in focus. From my testing on land, this doesn't seem to be the case with the NEX camera. The autofocus works well, but I'm concerned in case the focus starts to come in and out when filming underwater, or even worse, focuses on port if I see something in the distance. I cannot find any focus gear for the 16mm lens. Is there some for the Nauticam housing Does anyone have any focus set up tips for this set up? Settings such as centre spot, multi spot, single shot or continuous autofocus etc, or has anyone found a good set up in manual mode? Will it work to focus manually ona distance object and get stuff in focus from 1m onwards? Any help would be great fully apretiated - I'm trying to fill gaps from old techniques to the digital world! LOL! Cheers Tony

  9. Hi all, Thanks in advance to all the forum members who contribute, this place has been invaluable to me in terms of finding the right stuff. So I ended up buying an RX100ii and I've looked at the manual for the RX100ii (/M2) and i've done a lot of googling and have found pretty much nothing concrete on this subject. The question really is simple: What is the minimum spec SD card you need in order for all the features of the RX100ii to not be throttled by the SD card limitations? E.g. shooting max resolution video and doing burst raw images? The manual states class4 or more, but to me that sounds quite slow? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I would hate to be underwater having bought a cheap SD card to find that I can't do burst images at a speed which the camera is capable of. Happy to spend money on a good SD card, but I don't want to go full tilt overkill Thanks! SineTwo

  12. hey i'm new here and i would like to purchase a underwater photo equipment and i need some advice. so far i was thinking of getting a olympus om-d e-m1 with a nauticam housing. the only thing i dont like about it is the sensor size and the fact that there will most likely never be a olympus with a larger sensor. well maybe some time but not in the near future and i dont want to invest in equipment i can hardly upgrade and still use the lenses so there is sony which also seems to be interesting, especially the Sony A6000. i know there are no housings for this camera yet but i think this is just a matter of months. what do you think? the A7r or some successor would then be the camera for the future and i still could use the e-mount lenses. these are my major thoughts till now. so my question(s). what speaks for sony what for olympus? does anyone have one of the mentioned cameras and has some experience? any comparaisons?
  13. Hi Guys, I've had a chance to play with the Sony QX100 camera lately (gf got it ) and i must say it does awesome shots...so instantly an idea popped in my head "why not take it underwater?" So ideally a combo: camera in its housing in my hands or attached to something and an other housing with android based smartphone/tablet to serve as monitor and general control panel, perhaps on my arm - as these can connect wirelessly. Problem is, while i can get housings for phone/tablet there is no such option for the camera itself..At the moment i am in process of emailing few big names in UW housings to see if they could make a custom one but something tells me it will be either a no or the cost will be ridiculous... I am thinking of going one of two ways: 1) get some video camera/camcoder etc housing that would remotely be the same size ie something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Panasonic-VW-SPDS9-underwater-housing-/281370710520?pt=UK_AudioTVElectronics_Video_Camcorders&hash=item41830051f8 And try to adapt it to the camera ie make some internal mounts (not sure what materials to use though) it could be the cheapest option but there is a problem with fitting, keeping it stable, lens working correctly and of course no buttons at all - so camera would have to be switched on before putting it in the housing and then left on for the whole dive 2) order custom made housing...as mentioned before, emailed a few big names, so far had only one reply and its a no...wondering if anybody can recommend some smaller companies/private people that would be able to do something like this ? Ideally UK/Europe based but could work worldwide... It would be a "minimal" housing...just on/off button, shutter (just in case) and perhaps zoom control (though could skip this one in favour of controlling it from the tablet, if its too complicated/expensive) So thought will ask here...can anybody recommend anything? Any experience in making the camera fit other housing? Any other ideas? Would be grateful for any advice Also, i wonder, how WIFI would perform underwater....anybody tried this? Link to the camera: http://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/cyber-shot-compact-cameras/dsc-qx100 Cheers, Marcin
  14. Hi there, I am looking for a housing for my Sony NEX-7 camera, preferably with 16-50 lens port as well as an adapter for a 67mm wet lens or a housing for my Nikon D7000 (with Life View option) with optical bulkhead, preferably with a 60mm port and 67 adapter Thanks, Ben
  15. I purchased a new camera and housing. Therefore, my old one must go. It has served me well for the last two years taking photos mainly in local waters (British Columbia/Washington). I’ve never had a leak! Since I do mostly shore diving, there are nicks and scratches on the housing, but everything is functional. In my paranoia of having a discontinued housing, I purchased an extra body for the camera and there is still plenty out there. I would like $3000 for the package. I invested at least $5000 in this combined system. I will not sell the camera system separately unless the housing is sold first. I will let the housing set up go for $2000. Here are the specs: Camera Bodies: SONY NEX5N (one black/one silver), 16Mp sensor, mirrorless system Lenses: 18-55mm, 55-210mm(not for underwater), 16mm, 30mm macro, 60mm Sigma(not great underwater) Extras: 4 batteries, remote control, mini tripod, ND filter, two battery chargers Underwater Housing: Aquatica Cast Aluminum housing with 2 arms Several port extensions to accommodate a variety of lens configurations. Zoom gear for 18-55mm Clip to hold camera in place Leak moisture detector - super sensitive extra o-rings You can have a look at my photos taken above and below water with this system on my website: www.celticcow.com or http://kerry-enns.artistwebsites.com If you live within the Vancouver to Hope area of British Columbia, I will meet you where you wish and give you a lesson on setup. I will also make myself available to you for further hints and tips on using this housing. Note: if you want to use this in our dark waters you will need at least one strobe light or a very powerful regular light. I also recommend purchasing floats/float arms to compensate for the negative buoyancy of the housing.

  19. This Amphibico Phenom electronic housing is designed for the Sony Z1U & FX1 HDV camcorders. It has a plexiglass dome port that is in good shape. The HID lights are adjustable between 35 & 50 watts and the battery pack comes with two functional lithium Ion batteries. I don't know if Amphibico is still supporting this kit anymore with o-rings and screws, etc. The removeable diffuser on one of the lights is cracked, but it doesn't effect the light. The housing has some paint chipping on the belly and on the sides. I used this kit for a couple of wildlife documentaries, but it has been a couple of years since it has been in the water. Both the housing and the lights come with Pelican cases. I am asking $950 for the whole kit or best offer. Shipping costs are separate. Feel free to contact me if you'd like to ask questions or would like to take a tour of it via Skype. It is located in Portland, Oregon, and I'd prefer to ship within the United States. Thanks! Rob

  21. Hi, I just wanted to ask people on their thoughts between two camera systems as I am undecided (and struggling) on what to pick! The first set up is a RX100 II, with recsea housing, YS-D1, UWL-04 Fisheye Lens, bluewater +7 macro lens. The second is a XZ-2, Olympus housing, Z240, Inon wide angle and dome port. (maybe an Inon macro lens as well). If it helps my main subjects will be sharks as I am going to a shark research station. I will use the camera mostly on boats and snorkeling on the surface, freediving with the camera and the occasional dive. I do also enjoy macro photography and that's why I've included the macro lenses. Also I wanted to ask if anyone can recommend any insurance company's as I will be away for just under 5 months and want to cover any camera gear, my laptop, etc.

  24. hey i'm new here and i would like to purchase a underwater photo equipment and i need some advice. so far i was thinking of getting a olympus om-d e-m1 with a nauticam housing. the only thing i dont like about it is the sensor size and the fact that there will most likely never be a olympus with a larger sensor. well maybe some time but not in the near future and i dont want to invest in equipment i can hardly upgrade and still use the lenses so there is sony which also seems to be interesting, especially the Sony A6000. i know there are no housings for this camera yet but i think this is just a matter of months. what do you think? the A7r or some successor would then be the camera for the future and i still could use the e-mount lenses. these are my major thoughts till now. so my question(s). what speaks for sony what for olympus? does anyone have one of the mentioned cameras and has some experience? any comparaisons?
