  1. Hi all, At long last, I have posted a review that attempt to try and compare the performance of various wide-angle option for Nikon FX cameras. This is in part due to the frequently recurring threads on the forums about choosing these types of lenses. It is not perfect, nor complete, so it would be great if it could spark some discussion too! http://wetpixel.com/articles/review-nikon-fx-wide-angle-lenses I look forward to being challenged. Adam
  2. Having switched back to a DX system, I'm now selling the Subal parts for my Nikkor 16-35mm lens So, one Subal zoom ring for the Nikkor 16-35mm, Type 4, 88-toothed. In perfect condition. £65 plus postage And: Subal Type 4 Extension Ring 90 for the Nikkor 16-35 or the Canon 24-70. Again, in perfect condition. £150 plus postage For more info, please PM me
  3. Just having returned from a couple of excellent weeks diving in Bonaire, I wanted to share a couple of thoughts: First - Big Thanks. I had a couple of "issues" with my camera gear during the trip. Post to Wetpixel and PMs were answered really quickly and helpfully by a raft of people. While not wanting to embarrass anyone - or miss anyone too - thanks especially to Chris, Tom, Pavel and Oskar at Retra for advice on a range of diverse issues. You guys are brilliant and kept me relatively calm and relatively sane. Excellent advice, quick replies, thoughtful ideas..... I have written this before, but I really do think think Wetpixel is an excellent community. Folks are so good to share their advice, experience and knowledge freely and helpfully. And, even better, WP seems to suffer with almost none of the utter cr*p and abuse that seems to ruin so many other forums (check out the BBC football (soccer) Have Your Say site!). Moving on (and again, apologies if I have't thanked anyone who chipped in)..... Like many on the forum I've gone from DX cameras (Nikon D100, D200, D300) to FX (D800) and have now done about 100 dives back on DX with a D500. Some conclusions which I thought worth passing on: FX vs DX - DX setups are slightly cheaper: a DX body costs less than an FX. - DOF is better on DX which is especially helpful on macro. - Though I was concerned that moving back to DX I would miss much of the image quality that I had on the D800, this has proved not to be the case. D500 DX is excellent. I must admit I don't make mega-prints and a lot of my output I (try) sell via agencies. No problems getting images accepted following the switch. I can't speak of course for the D850. - DX is easier on the WA port issue. I really liked the Sigma 15mm and the Nikkor 16-35 for the D800. The Sigma was easy to "port" but the 16-35 was, in my view, a bit of a devil requiring a 230mm huge dome port. (I've never tried though the Sea and Sea converter). That port was expensive and, for me, hard for travelling on European baggage allowances. By contrast the DX only needs either a 100 dome port or the DP-FE size. - The Nikkor 8-15mm works really well on DX between 15 and approx 11. Image quality is great. It works equally well with the DP100 or DP-FE - I'm still playing around with a 1.4 TC and, as I have reported elsewhere, I've found that the classic Kenko 1.4 DG Telepro300 won't work with my D500 and the 8-15. It does work with my Z6 but not on a D5. Go figure. As you might have read elsewhere and as others have confirmed, the Kenko 1.4 TC DGX will work. I'll get hold of one soon and try it. Bonaire - If you are thinking of diving Bonaire: I've been going since the early 2000s and found the reef this time around in the best health I have seen for some years. Definite signs of coral growth; work by the local agency, SINAPA, at coral growing; new anemones around with Spotted Cleaner Shrimps on them (not seen them for years) and, generally, reefs with clouds of brown chromis and the usual suspects going about their lives. - Snooting: if you fancy a stab at shooting, Bonaire is great place to try it out with lots of macro life. I say "stab" meaning I would encourage folks not to stab themselves in frustration over snooting. UW photog is tough enough dealing with moving critters, moving camera, moving photographer, moving currents, viz, blah blah. Snooting adds a whole new area of pain. But when you get it right... Sweeeeet.... a couple of pics attached. - We did all shore diving with tanks from Dive Friends. Friendly, very convenient with filling stations all over the west side of Bonaire. I can recommend them. We didn't do any boat dives. We never used DMs or guides. Navigation on Bonaire is easy - and the critters are not hard to find. Pedersen cleaner shrimps, Spotted Cleaner Shrimps, Yellowline Arrowcrabs, Gobies, the occasional whip coral shrimp, drums, jawfish..... Well just some thoughts
  4. Used on one trip (about 20 dives) in the Summer of 2017. Never flooded, no scratches. Serviced by Backscatter after our trip. Nauticam NA-LX10 Pro Housing iTorch UWL-04 52mm wide lens Vacuum Valve LX-10 Camera (with 2 128gb storage cards) Batteries / Extra Charger We paid over $3,000 for everything but the camera. Asking for $1,600 (or best offer) including the camera. We are willing to sell the housing and camera separately however.
  5. Sea and Sea DX dome port #30104 in excellent condition. No scratches!!! Best offer takes it!
  6. Now I have gotten my new setup (Nauticam and Fujifilm XT-2), I need to sell parts of my current setup. I'm selling a fully equipped and working configuration built around the Olympus EPL-7 camera with the PTWC-01 wide angle wet lens from Olympus. I bought it in Kuala Lumpur in November 2016 at Divers Den, a shop specialized in underwater photography. I will provide all the receipts. The housing has been always very carefully maintained, never been flooded and without scratch. I have dived with it 110 times or so. The package contains the following elements: Olympus EPL-7 Silver Camera Body (4846 clicks) Olympus M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ Olympus Genuine Battery Charger + 2nd Battery BLS-50 Olympus Underwater Housing (PT-EP12) + Olympus Lubricant Olympus Anti-Reflection Ring for 14-42mm EZ (POSR-EP07) Deepshots 3D Printed Zoom Gear for 14-42mm EZ SanDisk Extreme 32GB SD Card Olympus Underwater Wide-Angle Converter (PTWC-01) The Olympus Wide Angle Converter (PTWC-01) fits the housing and converts the field of view to 100 degrees underwater. The lens is good condition with normal wear and tear (a few tiny scratches) but it does not affect in any ways the image quality. I can share some recent wide-angle shots and some macro stuff done with the CMC-1 from Nauticam (which I'm not selling by the way). This underwater photography gear is visible in Paris area (Boulogne-Billancourt) and I can ship it to buyer's costs. Price: 900 EUR (or nearest offer)

  10. Dear Seasoned Tropical Underwater Photographers, I am going to spend around 2 months travelling around indonesia in July/August with my camera set up (seacam, canon 5d, strobes, 15mm sigma, 60mm macro and gopro). I am looking for some stunning places to shoot macro and wide angle on a budget if possible. Can anyone make any general location and dive shop recomendations? Many thanks, Matt
  11. Hello, I am selling my Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-50mm F3.5-6.3 EZ including front and rear caps together with the Nauticam Zoom and Macro Gear #36147 O1250-Z EZ. The items are like new, since I bought them together with my housing. However, since I like it much more extreme and always shoot fish-eye or supermacro, I only used this lens one time in a lake. The lens is the perfect allrounder, since together with the zoom gear you can use the entire zoom range from 12 to 50mm and also can go into the macro mode (see picture). So, you basically have everything in one lens, which is especially go when you only have one dive at the particular location or when you don't know what you will see/you are after. I am asking for 450€ plus fees for insured & tracked shipping and PayPal. Since this is a private sale, everything is offered as is and I can not give any warranty. However, I can guaranty that everything described or shown on pictures is the truth. Furthermore, I have a well reputation here at this forum and also at ebay. There, I offer these items as well. Please don't hesitate asking anything, if you have any questions.
  12. For sale: Subal DP-FE 8" dome port. Type 4 bayonet mount Glass is in perfect condition. The usual minor scuffs on the port frame (see image). Includes neoprene port cover Also available, Pelican 1400 case fitted with foam and cut for the DP-FE And, unusually, a Type 3 mount if you wished to switch the domeport between a Type 3 or Type 4 housing. Costs new: DP-FE £970/€1135 Pelican case with foam £83/€95 Extra mount £249/€300 Neoprene cover £50/€60 Available for £775/€950 including shipping in the EU in the Pelican case Shipping from Paris - usually takes 4-5 days to UK Bank transfer preferred
  13. I'm interested in a WA-110 wet wide angle lens. Need to buy soon for an upcoming trip, so items located in the continental US only, please. Thanks!
  14. Dear all. I published a gallery of wide angle and some topside shots I took using the Olympus OMD EM5 (Nauticam housing). Pictures are a mixed bag taken with the 8mm using the 4,33" Dome and 7-14mm using a 170mm Inon Dome with D&D 50mm MIL to Inon Adapter. http://andre-schwarz.smugmug.com/Underwater/Wide-Angle/ Comments or recommendations are welcome. Kind regards. Andy

  16. Underwater photographers who know their stuff (or have a great photography gear guru like I have) know that the old but good Sigma 14mm f3.5 lens is one of the sharpest wide-angle, rectilinear lenses around. I’ve been a professional underwater photographer for a long while, and my guru (Ryan Canon at Reef Photo) recommended this hard-to-find lens for wide-angle shooting with my Nikon D800 camera. Being my usual overzealous self, I bought this lens on Ebay a couple of months ago, but then found another len in even better condition. This lens takes great images and the autofocus works just fine, even with my new Nikon D800 camera. Note that this is an older lens than the newer Sigma 14mm f2.8 and is considered sharper, and better for underwater photography (and likely topside photography). There are two things to know before you buy this lens. There is a small scratch on the lens. I can't see that this scratch affects the images taken with the lens. You can't even see the scratch unless you view the lens at a certain angle. I took dozens of photos to show the scratch on the lens -- you can finally see it in the last image in this listing. The lens cap/cover is not the original lens cap/hood that comes with this lens. It's something I fashioned out of another lens hood and lens cap. I bought this lens and it did not come with a lens cap. It will be difficult to find another lens cap that fits this perfectly. The one I've fashioned will work OK but is by no means perfect. It is simply a cover that falls off, not like the original cap/hood that stays on. You can likely put some rubber or wetsuit material on the inside of this hood to make it stay on. I just kept the lens in the lens case or camera bag. Otherwise, the lens is in great shape and I am selling it for exactly what I bought it for ($255 plus 3% for Paypal purchases for a total of $263), which is a pretty good deal. Condition: GOOD Condition Comments: Lens contains moderate cosmetic wear and light internal dust. Lens also contains lightly scratched glass. Lens cap/hood is not the original and does not fit well. See notes below. Includes: Rear cap, case Fully Tested and Works Properly. Item pictured is the actual item for sale. If you are interested, please contact Norbert Wu at temp2_at_norbertwu.com. Please no phone calls. I am happy to entertain reasonable offers. I can accept credit cards, Paypal, money orders, and personal checks. Money orders and 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. I can ship internationally via Fedex International Priority or Economy. Thanks! Norbert Wu
  17. FOR SALE : B&W +4 CLOSE UP DIOPTER (NL-4) 77mm Excellent condition B&W +4 Diopter, only ever used inside of a housing. Glass is clean with no scratches. Selling as upgraded from the Nikon 12-24mm to 10-24mm, which requires a +2 Diopter. This +4 diopter is required to help many popular midrange zoom lenses function behind dome ports. It will stop your images having soft corners. Sells for $98 at Backscatter (see http://www.backscatter.com/sku/so-76473.lasso), will accept $65 including worldwide shipping from Thailand. Any questions please email alex@dive4photos.com.
  18. I'm chilling in Changi on my way back to England. I'll eventually process my pictures, but I wanted to thank Shannon Conway and Graham Abbot (diving4images) for a great workshop in Tulamben. I have never seen so many ghost pipefishes... ... or Nauticam housings! Graham is a hard act to follow, but Megumi Kaneko was up to the task at Mimpi Menjangan. I think that I'm coming to grips with the D800: This is more than can be said for my frustrations at the (by all accounts continuous) Denpasar gridlock that left me in fear of missing my flight this afternoon!
  19. Hi all. If anyone has a wide-angle port available, please let me know! Preferably the Fathom / Ikelite 6480, but let me know if you have a 67mm wide-angle conversion lens. Cheers, Nick.
  20. This was only purchased this year in August 2012 (£245.00) for a diving holiday and only used for one week. It was purchased for use with Sony DSC-W300 and WPK-WD housing. I have since upgraded my camera and unfortunately can't use it with the new one. In excellent condition. This is an absolute bargain. I will include original receipt. On eBay seller gillw407
