FS: Nauticam NA-D500
simon87 posted a topic in ClassifiedsHi, Im selling my Nauticam NA-D500. The housing has seen about 100 dives. Everything works fine. Never flooded, dropped or anything similar. Just a few watermarks on it. The housing comes without the vacuum valve and the fibre optics adapter on the pictures. The housing also comes with the standard 0.66 viewfinder(not seen in the pictures). Asking 2600 Euro. BR Simon

FS: NA-D500, Z-240 strobes, Tokina 10-17, Reefnet snoot
ToddB posted a topic in ClassifiedsI have a few items for sale. Pictures taken with this equipment are at toddbretl.com and I’ve sold a number of items through this forum before and have never had any complaints (search will show those previous sales). 1. NA-D500 Housing. Very lightly used < 20 dives. I bought it for one trip, planning to sell afterwards. So, I basically considered it a rental and treated it very well. Has the M16 vacuum valve with pump. $3720 New, asking $3220. 2. Reefnet Fiber Optic Snoot for Z-240. Two fiber optics. $125. 3. 1 brand new Z-240 strobe. Never used, won it in a contest. $400 4. 2 used Z-240s. Never flooded or any issues. Original packaging. $300 each. 5. Tokina 10-17 lens. Only ever used underwater, very clean. $270. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like additional photos.
Hello Wetpixel! Initially I posted my question on this thread but it would probably deserve a dedicated discussion. My setup: Two Inon Z240 Type IV strobes, setup to be triggered via fiber optic cables (cables attached, working on previous Nauticam DSLR housing). Shooting fully in Manual mode, strobe outputs controlled manually via the strob knobs (not using TTL). Nikon D500 camera, in Nauticam housing. Because D500 doesn't have internal flash, Nauticam's new external flash triggering system is used, and connected to the D500 via a hot shoe. See here under section "External Flash Triggering" - i am NOT using the optional TTL circuitry, just the baseline one, which works in manual mode only. The problem: Inons don't fire My investigations so far: I am pretty sure the Inons are setup properly (i've switched from TTL shooting to Manual a while ago), and in fact i have been switching the fiber optics from the D500 housing to the D300s housing which i still have, and with the D300s Nauticam housing both strobes fire properly. So clearly the communication between NA-D500 housing and the Inons is not right. I made sure the NA-D500 emits a light signal: i unplugged the fiber optics and looked through the 2 "windows" and, surprise, they both emit a (strong) red light. So i confirmed the housing produces some light. Now i checked on the other end of the fiber optic cables (strobe side), and i do see the red light properly coming through the optical cable, so for me the fiber optic cables are fine - anyways they work perfectly with NA-D300s housing (triggered by the D300s' internal flash. My theories/open question so far: is it normal that the Nauticam LED flash triggering system emits red light? As far as i know LEDs consume fewer power when emitting white/blueish light. are Inon Z240 type 4 strobes supposed to work with a red light when using fiber optics as a trigger? I would be surprised that this very popular strobe model isn't compatible with the new Nauticam LED flash triggering system, but i just don't know. Can anybody help me figure out why it is not working, and how to fix this? I believe the NA-D5 housing uses the exact same strobe triggering system, so maybe some D5 shooters could advice? Some would say RTFM, but in fact the NA-D500 manual is still being written, that's one of the funny aspects of being a very early adopter cheers Nicolas
