  1. I have upgraded to a DSLR UW-rig and have a Nauticam WWL-1 wet lens for sale in mint condition. For use with Sony E, FE systems such as the full frame Sony A7, Canon M or Micro 4/3 such as Olympus M.ZUIKO, Panasonic Lumix. It is also great for compact cameras such as Sony RX100 version II to V and Canon PowerShot G7X, G16, S120 and Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX100 With this lens you can take 130° wide angle pictures but also shoot awesome close focus WA pictures.

  2. Hi all! I was quite active as a beginner here a few months ago, asking lots and lots of questions mostly about Nikon FX and the Nauticam WACP. I reached the conclusion that the D850 I already own with a WACP should be my best bet for optimum quality, but held off purchasing simply because of cost. Since then I’ve been thinking, and I’m now investigating other alternatives. Reasons for doing so include * size and weight (topside) of WACP solution, especially when travelling. * yes, cost. * not being sure I’ll be happy with having 25 mm (70 mm x 0.36) as my longest focal length. The alternatives I’m now looking at all include the WWL-1, which I gather is in many respects the equivalent of the WACP (albeit a removable wetlens) for smaller sensors. My plan with this post is to ask you whether I seem to have understood things correctly. I’ve been looking at two camera and three lenses. The Sony A6400 with 16-50, and the Olympus E-M1 MkII with either 14-42 or 12-50. Camera-wise the A6400 would give me about an extra stop of sensor performance. In fact, make that two stops at base ISO since A6400 goes to ISO 100, E-M1 to 200. (DxOMark and photonstophotos don’t quite agree though, I don’t quite know what to make of that.) I should also get a significantly better AF with A6400. The E-M1 on the other hand would give me IBIS and 2/3 stops better flash sync (1/250 s I believe, 1/160 s on the Sony). In fact, the Sony would lock me at 1/160 s or slower even if I turned off my strobes, since that’s what it does when the popup flash is raised. (The slow sync speed of the Sony should, in scenarios with sunlit backgrounds, be offset by the sensor’s theoretically better dynamic range at base ISO, but being locked at 1/160 s is still a bummer.) As for lenses, the 14-42 allows full zoom-through, giving full-frame equivalent of 10-30 mm with the WWL-1. This is better than the WACP. Using the 12-50 it vignettes until at 16 mm, giving maybe 12-36 mm equiv with WWL-1 assuming full zoom-through, which is still highly respectable by my standards. On the Sony side the 16-50 vignettes until 20 mm, giving 11-27 mm equiv. HOWEVER, if I use the bayonet mount the WWL-1 is easily removed, quickly opening up mid-range focal lengths should I need them. This is not possible with the WACP. Being behind a flat port I guess I need to go to maybe 40 mm (equiv) or so before getting rid of the most horrible corner issues, so there will be a gap in usable FOV:s but I think that will be ok. Also, I’m not sure but I think I should be able to use e.g. the SMC-1 with all of these lenses. I’m not sure how that would compare to a dedicated macro lens, but it should give me wide-angle, mid-range and macro on the same dive, which again would not be possible with the WACP. Of course I would be sacrificing resolution and dynamic range if I’m not using my D850. I have a couple of follow-up questions. But as a start – does this sound about accurate?
  3. Has anyone here tried mounting a Nauticam WWL-1 on a Meikon a6000 housing to use with the 16-50 lens? The lens is one of the recommended lenses to be used with the a6000/a6300 and the WWL-1. It seems odd to be putting such an expensive wet lens on a cheapo Meikon housing but I'm trying to take baby steps to get where I want to be. I've been shooting on an old Oly E-PM1 rig and soon found out that I've outgrown it. I'm a photographer/videographer by trade and own several high end cameras (A7rII, A7s, 5D3, GH3, C100) for my work, but wanted to start slowly with my underwater rig to make sure that it's something that I'd like enough to continue. I've found that while the E-PM1 was nice to learn on, I'm missing the responsiveness, AF, and quality of files of my higher end cameras. This leads me to the a6000 and the WWL-1. Eventually, I'd like a Nauticam a6500 w/16-50 to be used with the WWL-1 and a CMC. I have a pair of Sea & Sea 110a strobes that I'll be using with the a6000. In the meantime, I've found an inexpensive a6000 with a Meikon housing and 16-50 lens that might be a good stepping stone to the a6500 w/Nauticam housing. Since the front of the Meikon port has a 67mm thread, would the WWL-1 mount and work with the a6000 & 16-50 combo the same as it would on a Nauticam housing?

  5. Has a small hairline scratch on the front glass element that isn't noticable during normal use, but can show up when shooting the water column into the sun. Comes with bayonet mount and float collar, protective box. Here are two videos recently shot with this lens so you can judge for yourself if the flaw matters to you. Note that for pictures, it's much easier to fix any imperfections. https://www.youtube.com/embed/Sb1JYcD_F3U https://www.youtube.com/embed/PlgcAgGTTxs

  8. Up for sale is a used Nauticam WWL-1 lens. The lens has been used sparingly, and shows very little signs of use. Attached to various 28mm lenses, using either Nauticam's proprietary bayonet or a standard M67 mount, the lens has a 130-degree perspective, great for close focus wide angle. The lens also allows for zoom-through using kit-type lenses, making this a very flexible lens to use underwater. The lens can be attached and removed underwater. The lens sells for USD 1150 new. The hard cap USD 80; float collar USD 50. All totaled, this cost $1280. I will sell this lens with the mounts, caps and collar for $800 plus shipping. Please see photographs of the lens here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/craigfuj2/albums/72157679631933914 Please see a compatibility chart here: http://www.bluewaterphotostore.com/nauticam-wet-wide-lens-130-83201
  9. For Sale: Nauticam Wet Wide Lens 1 (WWL-1) and M77 to Bayonet Mount Converter Nauticam Wet Wide Lens 1 (WWL-1) 130 deg. FOV: used once in Car Wash cenote in the Yucatan. Mint condition. Retails for $1150, selling for $979 More info: http://reefphoto.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=8413 Nauticam M77 to Bayonet Mount Converter for Wet Lenses WWL­1/CMC: Mount this adaptor on your flat port with 77mm thread to permit rapid, simple, easy, and secure, attachment of the Nauticam WWL-1, CMC, or SMC wet lenses with Nauticam Bayonet mount. Retails for $80, selling for $65. I used the above on a Panasonic GH4 housing with a 12-50mm lens. The port for the 12-50mm lens has a 77mm thread -- therefore the M77 mount converter for sale above. Photographers have been raving about the WWL-1 lens, and rightly so. Nauticam has produced a wet lens that converts certain Micro-4/3 lenses into wide-angle lenses that produce sharp, clear images. Nauticam knows their optics and has produced a unique, useful product. If you are interested, please contact Norb Wu at temp2_at_norbertwu.com. Please no phone calls. I am happy to entertain reasonable offers. I can accept credit cards, Paypal, and personal checks. Personal checks will have to clear my bank before the product is shipped; which can take up to three weeks. Shipping will be at buyer's expense (at actual cost) and will be UPS Ground, Fedex Ground, or USPS Priority Mail (all of which give tracking of packages). If we conclude a deal, I'll give you a quote for shipping via one of the above methods. Thanks! Norbert Wu
  10. I came across a store review of the WWL-1 and an interesting piece of glass showed up there: the Dyron SWAL13. Has anyone tried this, and its narrower siblings on a m43 camera? First round I'd try it on my NA-RX100iv for 4k video shooting, as a cheap alternative to the WWL-1.

Asking price for all of these items bundled as a complete 'ready to shoot package' is $5,600 plus shipping. I prefer not to sell individual Nauticam components but can also offer the package excluding the camera and lens for $3200. I will also sell the NA-A7II housing by itself for $2,000 (no ports or accessories). I have enjoyed shooting this system for just under 6 months - this set up has done roughly ~100 dives across Indonesia, Mexico, Tonga and the Maldives. I also have an A7SII and another NA-A7II housing with the 16-35mm set up. I am selling this system because I no longer need redundant housings/wide angle set ups, while previously I was traveling for an extended period of time on various shoots. The image quality, fast video autofocus, great low light and ability to shoot high quality stills and full frame 4k video in a small package were the major selling points for me. The full frame sensor is a beast for photos and the strong XAVCS codec and SLOG2 features are amazing for video shooters as well.

  12. I thought I should start a thread dedicated to the Nauticam WWL-1. We've discussed this in other / less appropriate topics and it's time it has a one dedicated to it. I want to start off by saying that although I know own both the Lens and the Collar I have yet to be underwater with them (first trip planned to Socorro in June, followed by a cold water (drysuit/dry gloves) trip in Sept to BC, Canada). My first impression is that this will be a really nice product, as long as you don't plan on changing the lens out during the dive. It's virtually impossible to access the red release switch on the bayonet mount with this collar installed. Maybe if you could attach a string / fishing leader or something similar to the red button to pull on it to release it easier). But it definitely very difficult to do (on land with bare hands)... Also, you can barely make out the white guide marks once the collar is installed. Since I have trouble doing this on land, I can only imagine what it would be like underwater. I tried on a pair of my dry gloves (on land) and it was impossible for me to activate the release switch. This was somewhat upsetting as my cold water trips involve shots that are both wide angle and macro on the same dive (ie: Nudibranchs / Giant Pacific Octopus / Lion's Main Jellyfish). This means, if I want to use the collar, I will have to accept only using one lens per dive. And even for warm water, with bare hands the odds of me switching out lenses will most likely be more trouble than it's worth... Also, it took me a while to attach the two little screws that hold this in place; I struggled for a good 15 minutes before I finally used the flash light on my phone to figure out why it wasn't lining up and then persuaded the hole in the foam to come close to lining up with the hole in the lens. I am sure I will get better at it in time; but I don't see myself removing it and putting it back on more than necessary. This means if I want to use both the CMC and WWL-1 lens on the same dive, my only real choice will be to deal with the added weight of the lens without the collar installed. The collar is supposed to relieve about 1.5 pounds of weight (making it about 5oz negative while attached), so I am sad that they cover the release switch with this design. I almost with they would have made it less buoyant while still retaining the ability to easily swap out lenses while on the dive. Maybe this is the plan with the aluminum version of the collar they are working on. I'll report back to this thread in a few months after I have actually experienced it underwater.
  13. I am on the hunt for a 4k video solution and stranded at the RX100 mk IV. Decent IQ, modest pricing, cheap housings. First of: I am eying the Fantasea frx100 housing(s), does it have any significant drawback compared to Ikelite? Speaking of Fantasea, does the mk IV camera fit in the mk III housing? Fantasea offers a retrofitting service, can it be done at home? As for optics, I want the best. Does the WWL-1 have any serious (and somewhat lighter...) competitors in the wet wide lens department?
  14. Selling like new Nauticam WWL-1 lens used on one dive trip. Come complete with box,carry case,neoprene cover,cover, bayonet mount and cleaning cloth. Bought new in September for $995.00 Asking 800.00 . Free Cont. US shipping and will ship worldwide.
  15. Hello I just got into underwater videography. I own rx100 iv, gh4, a7s ii and could not decide which combo will give me the best wide angle results. (regarding underwater quality, cost, portability) -Sony's 16-35 is quite new so I could not get any review regarding lens quality, but the 28mm with WWL-1 adapter seems promising. What would be best lens for sony full frame camera? -The Panasonic 7-14 looks quite poor from the sample I have seen on the internet, especially below f8. Will bigger dome than 6" give better results? (However, anything bigger will step it into a7s territory in term of price and portability) -I have not done enough research on the rx100 wet lens yet but it looks like there are plenty to choose, even rectilinear adapter. Any recommendation is welcome. I primarily interested in 4k video and not still photography. --------From my research, here is what I think. Feel free to criticize------ Codec and Dynamic range on rx100 mark4 is almost on par with the big brother so rx100 was my top choice. However, image stabilization is not so great. a7s that lacks behind is portability and value for money really excels here. Thank you in advance for any input! Cheers
  16. Looking at the test results of the RX100 mk IV, (DXO, Dpreview) the tiny 1" sensor system seems really impressive, the iso-performance matches the m43 sensor while in video the sony is clearly superior. Is there any aspect where the GH4 worth ~2x the investment? Alright, I won't be able to shoot 10+min 4k with the RX, because it overheats. Also I won't be able to use a true fisheye, I have to live with the ~120° provided by the WWL-1. Anything apart from that?
