  1. Due to upgrades (a recent housing purchase for my D750) I'm selling off my 'training wheels' underwater camera setup. The camera's reputation precedes itself as one of the top rated underwater compact solutions for the past couple years. Here's Backscatter's review: I've used this package on roughly 100 dives on 4 trips over the last 18 months. Accessories have been added to turn it into a compact, easy to travel and complete solution. The only thing not included are lights, however a 'universal' mount for a regular dive light is included. I'm holding on to the lights I've purchased. I'm looking to sell this as a 'turnkey' package, however, I've broken out the wet lens as that was a recent purchase and is in 'almost new' condition. That being said, i highly recommend buying it all together for the greatest flexibility. Photos of the gear condition at: https://1drv.ms/u/s!ArvnUdWmJ1CKhrYrfr0yzP4c_j2irw?e=DDRfQ9 (This is the actual gear - photos taken yesterday) All of this was diving with me in Bahamas in June and is in good working condition. 1 x Olympus TG-5 Black Camera (used but excellent condition - it's always been used in a housing) 1 x Olympus PT-058 Underwater Housing for TG-5 (Good condition - some minor scuffs & wear. Nothing that impedes functionality or image quality. Lens is clear.) 1 x Olympus UC-90 Charger (Almost New) 2 x Olympus LI-92B Batteries (Good Condition) 4 x 3rd Party Batteries (New condition - will only charge in camera, not in Olympus charger; Use of 3rd party batteries is at your own risk... but they worked for me) 1 x Accessories (Spare O Ring; Olympus Grease; Removal tool; Wrist Strap; Lens Cap; Baggie 'o' desssicant; Optical strobe clip for Sea&Sea style cables) 1 x 52mm to 67mm step up thread converter (Good condition, modified with additional holes for easy removal) 2 x Mozaic Underwater Flex Arms (Plus an additional 'parts only' spare - these have minor damage to the mount base - see photos - does not affect use in any way) 1 x Mozaic Underwater Aluminum Tray (Good Condition) 1 x 'Universal' dive light mount (New Condition - allows for attaching a standard dive light to flex arms) Looking for $675USD for the package above. Separately priced is Backscatter M52 120deg Wide Angle Wet Lens. This was recently purchased and only used on one trip. It is in pristine condition. https://www.backscatter.com/Backscatter-M52-Underwater-0.50X-120-Wide-Angle-Wet-Lens Looking for $325USD for the lens. All gear is located in Canada and I'm willing to ship worldwide however terms are FCA Calgary. Buyer is responsible for shipping, insurance, duty, tax, etc. I can ship on my Fedex account and add it to the bill, however, responsibility for items while in transit would remain with buyer. Payment by wire transfer in CAD (preferred) or USD - alternate methods and currencies are negotiable. Item ships upon receipt of full payment. I am happy to answer any questions and provide a few tips on use/maintenance as well.

  3. 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?
  4. Selling my INON UCL - 100 with LD bayonet mount. This is a +10 diopter lens, and with early RX100 you can get true macro of about 35mm subject size. Glass is clean, but there are a few dings and scratches on the metal body. I'll also include some LD lens mounts for the arms. $125 + US shipping, located in central Texas please send PM if you'd like to buy it in person. check out the gallery for closeup pics: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1AxBAykNcSuQUzGrZnBCvzqhqZWJTfWRo

  9. I have a Dyron SWAL13 that I have been using with my Canon G7X in a Nauticam NA-G7X housing with the N50 short port. The relative price, wide FOV, and Blue Water Photo test results (http://www.bluewaterphotostore.com/canon-g7x-underwater-lens-tests) are what led me to the SWAL13. Thus far I have found that getting photos with razor sharp focus with this lens/camera combination is nearly impossible. The very wide field of view is great for composing big shots but many of them end up having soft focus and are barely usable. Any ideas why this might be the case? I have not had the same type of focus problem when shooting with my CMC-1 macro lens or no wet accessory lens. Here are a few example photos that I feel show this problem: https://jonjake.smugmug.com/El-Nido-2016/i-6VmGkHQ/A ( f/8, 1/40s, ISO 125) https://jonjake.smugmug.com/Cozumel-2016/i-6KVw3K4/A (f/8, 1/80s, ISO 200) https://jonjake.smugmug.com/Central-California/i-r4shgL5/A (f/8, 1/60s, ISO 200) I have read some recommendations that suggest locking focus on your fin at the beginning of a dive when shooting wide angle and others that say to put your camera in Macro mode when shooting with a wet wide angle lens. Any suggestions or tips that I can try would be greatly appreciated!
  10. Hello Wetpixel! I thought I would post a dedicated thread for this discussion, rather than getting it lost in existing OM-D threads. In those threads I've read that image quality was good when using wet dioptres (Subsee) on top of the Olympus 12-50mm lens underwater (as the nauticam 60mm port has a 67mm thread). This brings a lot of versatility on this 12-50mm setup, and I was wondering why wouldn't size-conscious photographers use wide angle wet lenses on top of this setup? I must say I've never used any wet lens, so I may miss something, that's why I'm asking. I think it was Dr Mustard who said optical quality remained good with a wet complement like Subsee diopters, what about the wide angle complements? thanks for your advice, cheers Nicolas
  11. has anyone used one of these are they any good? seem to be a good deal at $280au it is going onto 100mm canon macro Cheers Joe
  12. 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

  21. Hello, I just acquire a set of UWL-H100 28M67 Type-2 + Dome Lens Unit II for UWL-H100 for my Canon S110 inside a Nauticam housing. After spending good 30 min assembling the lens system, following Inon's instruction step by step, fiddling with small and tiny screws, After completing the assembly, I got to the maintenance section, which actually calls for disassembling the lens system after every use !!! I find this tedious since it adds 20 to 30 minutes of gear preparation. I was wondering if there is anyone out there utilising the same lens system, that keeps it assembled between trips, and whether they have faced any issue for doing so.... Your comments are highly appreciated. Regards; Juan
  22. This is a used lens. There are some slight scratches on the lens that you should be able to polish out since the dome is acrylic. Not sure if they would show up in water or not. It comes with 52mm-67mm step-up adaptor so it can be used with any housing that has 67mm threading (e.g. I am open to reasonable offers. Pictures below. Keep in mind some of this is dust.
  23. Before going on my dive this morning, I found a spot of condensation about the size of a US quarter on the inside of my Subsea +5. It was pretty hot and humid this morning so I placed the lens in the water to cool it down and to see if the condensation would go away. It did shrink the size down by a bit and by the end of the dive it had gone completely. At the end of the dive after sitting outside for no more than 10 minutes, the condensation came back. Now that I'm home and the lens is in my air conditioned house it's completely gone and the lens is clear. Is this a defect in the lens? I would think that the unit should be completely sealed and no condensation should appear on the inside. I couldn't find any droplets of water inside the lens upon inspection so nothing appears to be getting inside the lens. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  24. Hey all, This is my first post here. First of all, I apologize if my questions have been asked before. I've tried using the search function here and on other websites, but I can't find any satisfactory answer. Please point out to me to any relevant thread. I bought a Canon S90 and Ikelite housing in 2010, but I haven't had much chance to use them. So I am still very new to this. Recently, I bought an Inon D2000 and I am now planning to buy some wet lenses, macro and WA. From my readings, I have my eyes on Inon UCL-165M67 and FIX UWL-04. If you know of better alternatives, please let me know. My Ikelite housing has a 67mm port, but I'm thinking of getting an adapter ring that will allow AD lenses to be mounted onto my port. Something like this http://www.bristolcameras.co.uk/p-10-bar-67mm-to-ad-mount-adapter.htm. My main goal is to facilitate easier lens changing underwater. My questions are: 1. How do I mount a FIX UWL-04 to the now AD port? 2. Will the added distance change the capability of the UCL-165 and the UWL-04? 3. Assuming I use some kind of adapter, do I need to zoom in to avoid vignetting with the UWL-04? 4. Is it worth changing to AD lens? Or should I just stick to M67? 5. Are there better alternatives (in terms of IQ) to UCL-165 and the UWL-04? My plan is to shoot the wet lens with the current camera for a year or so, before upgrading the camera. Thank you all. Looking forward to answers. Regards
