  1. It is a few years that am shooting with warming diffusers on my Inon, having moved to sea and sea that do not have such a thing I had to find alternative solutions As I was at it I started experimenting with other techniques including cooling diffusers to get better colour and then finally combining with magic filters for still images I wrote the whole blurb here if anyone wants to look into the details...https://interceptor121.com/2019/09/29/creative-strobe-filters-for-wide-angle/ Having said that are there any other strobe diffusers other than blue filter for fluoro dives?
  2. I’m planning to start shooting WA with my D800 (mounted in Nauticam Housing). After a thorough tough I’m planning to use a diagonal fisheye and in particular the Sigma 15mm f2.6. I was wondering if anyone has experience of using this lens with Nauticam 180mm Glass dome port on FX camera, I have gone thru the lens chart provided by Nauticam and this dome is not recommended for this lens while is for Standard wide angle lenses like te 16-35 f4, I wonder if this is due to vignetting or soft corners or other reasons. Further I was wondering if anyone has experience on shooting WA with Video lights as fill and smaller strobes Like the Inon S2000, my idea would be to use 2 video light of 10,000 Lumens each with a beam angle of 110° + 2 INON S2000. Any contribution/suggestion will be highly appreciated.
  3. This is a photo taken with my Nikon D700 with a sigma 15mm fisheye lens, Dual YS-D2 strobes, F6.3 at ISO 200, Shutter at 1/60. Let me know what you guys think of this. I was close to my subject (less than 1 foot away) and my strobes were already pointed outward and were about ~15 inches away from my DP-230 Zen dome but I can still see some backscatter. How would you reduce backscatter in this case? I also notice some glare on the sides of the picture implying that my strobe beams hit the sides of my dome. Any advise from you guys would be extremely helpful. thanks!

  5. 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
  6. Went down to Antarctica in March (7 days on the peninsula). We made it down past the polar circle to 66˚ 33’ 47.5’S and were able to dive under an iceberg in Crystal Sound where a friendly and curious crabeater seal chose to spend some time with us under the ice. A pretty magical experience. A few photos embedded here.

  7. Great condition lens for wide angle. Glass is perfect. Evidence of use along outside rim, side of outside rim and back rim (see photos). All dings are cosmetic only. Includes original box for lens, front/back cover, lens pocket and appropriate zoom gear. Price: 900$ Shipping included within US PayPal only
  8. Friends I have the Nauticam LX100, and am about to upgrade to the LX100 II (which thankfully can fit into the existing housing, with a slight modification). I previously tried the Nauticam WWL-1, but oh my God that thing was a monster. It was so big and heavy and I found it completely unwieldy in the water So I reconsidering my decision -- should I try with a different wide angle wet lens? If so, which one?
  9. I have a used Nauticam 180mm Optical Glass Wide Angle Dome Port available. I shoot professionally, and someone else had it on a rental, small nick on the outside of the dome. It should not affect your shots at all, But they bought me a new one as per my contract. Some wear and tear on the sun shade. Photos are available, but for some reason I can't figure out how to attach them here. Complete with original box, soft shell Nauticam Case, neoprene hood cover. No O-rings. I live in Toronto, Ontario. Happy to ship at buyers expense. $1200 CAD new.... hoping to get $800 CAD for it. OBO. Please email me at: info@carlyunderwater.com
  10. Make me an offer! The dome port has some light scratches and one more notable mark that could easily be buffed out. I'd include an acrylic cleaning kit I've used on various ports over the years to clean up small scratches. Dome port comes with neoprene cover and 2 port extensions (5510.11 & 5510.22). If the price is right, I'll throw in a Precision 5" dome with extension from UW Camera Stuff! Flat port is in great shape with Focus Extension (5510.75) and Port Extension (5510.16 I think).
  11. Hi guys! I have a gently used Canon EF 8-15 F/4 fisheye lens for sale. This lens has been amazing on all fronts with pretty sharp corners. Great for shark photography and other large pelagics, reefscapes, swim throughs etc. Beautiful results! The lens is in spectacular shape and comes with its original lens shade and cover. I am asking for 800 USD - buyer pays shipping. Here is a link to check out photos: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1nCdRdkqaNDQxGHD8v-js3FSZPY6JMZJi
  12. Hello! I am selling an Aquatica housing for Canon 5D Mark II that has accompanied me for a couple of years. It is an extremely robust and reliable piece of kit, which has never flooded nor given me any trouble. I need to sell it because (against my will...!) I am moving to Sony. I have added a couple of pictures I took with it so you can get an idea of the potential. The pack includes: -Aquatica housing: It is used but in good working condition. The housing has acoustic and visual water sensor, an hydrophone cable and the flash cable. Very practical -8'' dome: has one very tiny scratch that should be easy to remove, and that is invisible on the pictures anyway. Include a shade and a neoprene cover. -Flash cables: 2x short nikonos cables (5pin) + 2x10m nikonos cables (5pin), ideal for landscape or studio pictures -Canon 5D Mark II body: little cosmetic imperfections, but in excellent condition. Never fell on the floor -Canon 20mm/F2.8: excellent optic for landscape photography. It has a couple of cosmetic imperfections that were there when I bought it, but it works perfectly. -Accessories: 2xBattery + Battery charger + 2 x16G memory card + Camera strap Do not hesitate to send me a PM if you have any questions. Have a nice day!
  13. Hi guys, I just joined in, I use sony rx-100 v with nauticam housing, trying to decide which wide lens is better for me, Inon UWL-H100 with it's dome, I know it's for 28mm, but I've been told to just zoom in and loose a few degrees (starting at 125 or so), or Weefine WFL01, 140º degrees, made for 24mm. The thing is that I can't find reviews on the Weefine, and everyone recommends me INON but a single person, could you help me please? Huge thanks Riki Inon UWL-H100 with Dome Unit

  16. Canon EF mount 16-35 f/2.8 III USM lens for sale $1250 Have original packaging. Includes bag, lens caps and lens hood. email: liz@stephenfrink.com or call: 305-451-3737
  17. Hi. I need a set of strobes to help collect surface images of the cave floor. That means flat, even lighting, while shooting 5-15' above the floor. That also means not interested in macro abilities or dramatic shadows or contrast, really not for making pretty shots (though maybe when the opportunity arises). For this project, I expected to be using someone else's rig that worked well for me on a previous project in which we used video lights. The lights worked well enough because the canon 5D is awesome in low light, but still there was some edge effects that were less than ideal. This time, I will be using my own Panasonic Lumix Lx10. I like video lights, and was planning to purchase some, but everyone keeps telling me that for less money, I can get brighter light for my stills with strobes. Since this wasn't an expected expense that I could have written into my grant, I will be buying these strobes with my own money... and I'm a grad student, so that ain't a deep pool to dive. I'm looking at three budget options: Inon S-2000, Sea & Sea ys-01, and ys-03. Someone at Backscatter told me that I should steer clear of the ys-03 because I will probably want lower power shots for the cave, and there's no manual control. My thought was that my focus light will allow the camera to communicate the need for a lower power flash if need be. But, more control options are usually better. Backscatter also has an article that found that the YS-01 is a lot brighter than the S-2000. But, the S-2000 has the external accessible sensor that may mean I have a wireless option to play with if I need it. Any insights from more experienced photographers would be super helpful. Thanks for any comments. Cheers.
  18. Hi, I recently bought the Nikon D500. I live in Maine and hope to take some wide angle photos in my home state. The visibility is terrible 5 to 15 feet. Is it possible to do wide angle in these conditions? I have both the Nikon 10-24mm and Tokina 10-17mm. I also have Sea & Sea Ys-D2 strobes. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

  22. Hello everyone! Getting started in underwater photography—I own the D850, and I have my eye set on the Nauticam housing and two Sea & Sea strobes. What wide-angle lens should I get? I want good glass - the D850 doesn't do too well with bad glass. Seems the overall consensus is that despite its topside performance, the Nikkor 14-24 isn't great underwater. Any suggestions would be really helpful! Also, suggestions for what lens dome to get with that lens for the Nauticam housing. Thanks, Max
  23. For sale a complete Canon 7D system of cameras, lenses, housing, ports, strobes, batteries, vacuum system, and all needed accessories to have you in the water shooting the day it arrives. Never leaked or flooded and includes a Backscatter AirLock vacuum system to ensure you have a good seal. Original owner, less than 100 dives since last service by Backscatter. I’ve made the move to full frame so I would prefer to sell it as a complete set. Package includes free email and phone tech support to help you understand how it all goes together and works in case Canon SLRs or underwater photography are new to you. I'm in the Seattle/Vancouver area and in-person transaction and setup is an option. Original purchase price of full system was $13,000 Asking $5,500 plus shipping. Cameras and Housing 2 Canon EOS 7D bodies – 18 megapixel, 8 fps, full HD video, excellent manual white balance for shooting underwater ambient light Includes batteries, charger and CF card. I travel with two bodies, 1 for underwater with specific settings, and 1 for top side. Just in case anything happened underwater I had a backup. Never had anything happen but find having a 2nd land camera is sometimes useful. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/cameras/dslr/eos-7d Aquatica 7D housing – machined aluminum housing with large easy to navigate knobs. Button placement is exactly over the camera button, so once you can navigate the back of the camera you can navigate the housing. Housing was used with optical flash trigger, so no electronics to worry about. All buttons, knobs, and buckles are properly aligned and operate smoothly with no sticking. There are minor superficial scratches on bottom of housing from boat deck. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_dslr_d7.html Wide angle setup Tokina 10-17 fisheye – probably the most widely used underwater wide angle lens ever made and still one of the best. Includes lens bag. Recently rated #2 best underwater lens of 2017 by Scubashooters.net http://www.scubashooters.net/underwater-life/best-lenses-underwater-photography/ http://www.divephotoguide.com/underwater-photography-special-features/article/underwater-photographers-guide-tokina-10-17-mm-lens/ Aquatica 8” acrylic dome, shade, extension ring, port lock, 2 neoprene covers. The big dome gives great sharpness all the way to the corners of the frame, and is great for shooting splits. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18405.html Aquatica 4” glass mini dome with locking port ring, neoprene cover. The smaller dome is ideal for when you need to swim a lot when shooting things like whale sharks and humpback whales. Also useful for close-focus wide angle when you want to get the lens REALLY close. This port is like new, only 8 days in the water since it was purchased for the Wetpixel Isla Mujeres trip last summer. http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18410.html Macro setup Canon 60mm – a good starter macro lens because the depth of field and focus are much easier than the 100mm on an APS-C 1.6 crop. Perfect length for most fish shots, ideal for things from about basketball size down to about 1 inch. For things from a few inches to 1cm size I used the Canon 100mm. The 100mm lens will not be included in the sale, but the extension ring for it is. Includes UV filter and case. https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/lenses/ef/macro/ef-s-60mm-f-2-8-macro-usm http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/macro-lenses Aquatica low profile flat macro port – in excellent condition with no scratches on glass. Also includes extension ring for use with Canon 100mm, and neoprene cover http://www.aquatica.ca/en/products_ports_18429.html Focus light Sola 600 – fully sealed rechargeable, 3 brightness levels, also 3 brightness levels of red light for those skittish subjects. Useful as a focus light, and also as primary dive light on night dives. Includes Ultralight ball mount for light, Ultralight ball mount for housing, 1/4x20 stainless stud for mounting, and Ultralight clamp. http://www.divephotoguide.com/underwater-photography-special-features/article/sola-600-focus-light/ Strobes A pair of Inon Z240 Type 4, with optical sync cords and housing adapter. Includes 2 diffusers, manual and original unused sets of clear and red filters for built in focus/aiming light. For the easiest use these strobes can be run in TTL, and in TTL with exposure compensation. This is an easy way to get started and get great pictures your first few trips if you are not comfortable with running manual strobe power adjustments. Once you get more comfortable and want to get creative shooting close focus wide angles with sunballs, then you can run manual. You can significantly reduce the power of the built in flash by a camera setting, allowing you much shorter flash recycle times. The strobes have never leaked and as you can see in the photo the battery compartments look brand new. Also includes a pair of Ultralight 8 inch and 5 inch arms with strobe ball mounts, Ultralight clamps and Stix floats, plus 16 Eneloop batteries in cases and 2 chargers. http://www.inon.jp/products/strobe/z240/top.html http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/reviews-strobes-inon-z240 https://www.backscatter.com/Inon-Z240-Underwater-Strobe Bonus gear if you buy the full package A Backscatter AirLock vacuum system. The port is already installed on the housing, includes manual pump. A must have for peace of mind and good insurance against accidents. https://www.backscatter.com/Backscatter-AirLock-Vacuum-Manual-System-Bulkhead A set of Locline arms with Aquatica mounting hardware and Sola adapters. These were used for a set of video lights I won't be selling. https://www.backscatter.com/Locline-34-Sola-Flex-Arm-for-GatesAquatica-video-h A couple extra Canon lenses for top side use. These are small light lenses that travel well and having an extra backup body for underwater that doubles as your land/boat camera. Pictured below with the same Tokina 10-17 and Canon 60 mentioned above. Canon 17-85 IS USM Canon 28-105 Canon 100-300 Also a variety of O-rings, allen wrenches, and other small bits that may come in handy.
  24. Youtube is full of review of this little camera for land use. Except a couple of video at Backscatter I don't see any real user feedback for underwater use. Nauticam provides the ubiquitous WWL-1 to get wide angle shots but when you add over 1000$ to the kit you end up in another territory... Is there some other cheaper but effective solution to get wide shots? I don't care about macro. Thank you in advance
