  1. After having shot Olympus for several years in my documentary and street photography, and the recent announcement of Olympus selling off its camera division to JIP, I'm debating whether to dump all my Olympus gear or stick it out. I'm heavily invested in Olympus topside (5 bodies, 8 lenses, 3 TTL strobes) and debating whether to add an Olympus housing to my equipment list. I've considered switching out completely to SONY a6xxx for all my work but I truly love the compact form factor of m43. My issue is Olympus is really lagging on the video codec end of things - Panasonic is much better on that front but I want the ability to switch back and forth easily between stills and video while freediving. I'll be shooting ambient light only, primarily concentrating on large pelagic marine life, other freedivers, seascapes, etc. I can use/get either the Olympus 9-18 or either of the 8mm fisheye lenses from Olympus or Panasonic. Typical shooting depths no more than 15-20 meters maximum with 10 meters being the norm depending on water clarity. If I can move to SONY, can their 16mm f/2.8 lens with their clip on fish eye adapter be utilized in a housing with dome port? SONY doesn't have the lens options of other brands on that end of the lens spectrum so any advice/input would be greatly appreciated.
  2. I've got a mint condition Ikelite housing for a Sony A6000 mirrorless camera for sale, which can also be used with the other Sony A6XXX models (A6300, A6400, A6500) if you reprogram a button; one button is different, and I have confirmed this safely works. The housing includes the intermediate port and wide angle glass port for a Sony 21mm ultra wide (weitwinkel) Conversion lens (which I also have for sale). In addition, it includes a Sentinel leak and vacuum valve installed, pump, and Ikelite dual handle tray for your strobes. You can either run optical to your strobes, or purchase a TTL board from Ikelite to run with their strobes. Lots of spare parts, including multiple new o-rings. Used for a little under 100 dives before I upgraded to a Nauticam and full frame. The whole setup cost me over $2200 new, so I am asking only $750 for the package. I will include a brand new Sony 21mm UWC lens (converts the Sony FE 28mm F2 lens into a 21mm F2.8 wide angle) for an additional $100, but you will still need the Sony 28mm lens. I have receipts for everything, all purchased new in 2018. No leaks, no scratches on the dome. Many more pics available. The blue tape is just to keep everything together so the o-ring stays healthy.
  3. Hi Everyone, I am a new member and wanted to share some of my photos from my past Philippines dive trip last April 2019. I dove in 3 areas. Panglao, Anda and Coron. Amazing experience !
  4. Hi All, As per my understanding, the Sony a6000 and a6300 cameras are very similar in size and design. Has anyone try to use Sony A6300 or A6500 in the Ikelite A6000 underwater housing? The faster AF system, metabones and 4k video are very appealing. Direct Quote from Ikelite: "Unfortunately, differences in lens placement prevent the cameras from being used interchangeably in the same housing" http://www.ikelite.com/housings/sony/6910.61-sony-a6000.html Alan
  5. I’ve recently acquired the Meikon 40m housing for the Sony a6000. I’m pleased to find that the Sigma 19mm and 30mm f/2.8 lenses fit this housing; yes, but what I really want to shoot with is a fisheye lens. It does not, however, appear as though there is a fisheye lenses for this setup. Every fisheye lens that I’ve found online for the Sony e-mount is too large to fit the Meikon housing. (If anyone knows of one that I’ve missed, please please pretty please tell me of it! :-) I do happen to have the Sony 16mm pancake lens, with the fisheye adapter. This won’t fit the Meikon housing, of course, due to the built-in petal lens hood on the adapter -- so I cut it off, enabling the lens to fit. Alas, but the lens-with-adapter suffers from vignetting in the Meikon housing! I can’t understand it, the lens is right up against the glass of the port; how can there be vignetting? Does anyone have the answer to this? Or, a suggestion for a possible solution? Or, knowledge of a fisheye lens for the Meikon a6000?
  6. I would like to know if anyone has any experience with NAUTICAM adapter for "old" 35 mm NIkonos and Sea&Sea lenses. Are they sharp as Sony/CZ lenses. It seems a good solution and somehow cheap ?!
  7. 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?
