  1. Hello fellow photographers and divers! I have some doubts that are killing me internally and keep me from sleep 😂. I have thought of buying a Sony Alpha a7 mark 1, and keep it as my dive camera. Since its not too expensive, its compact, and it does a great job. I am also considering getting the A7 s, which will potentially improve the results and the price difference is not too much. It would be worth it. My reason to go for a Sony Alpha as my dive camera is because their underwater housing are extremely cheap (the Meikon ones) and ive read great reviews about those housings. Also because they are overall quite good and it would work great as a backup, light camera to use aside of my massive 6D + 70-200mm setup. I am planning to just go for the 28-70 kit lens, since its also cheap and it does deliver as expected. Price range is 170-250 euros as used... I am planning to get the camera and lens as second hand. My only issue with this setup is that the Meikon housing for the mark 1, does not have a dome port. And it is something I would quite love to have. The housing designed for the mark 2 however, does support a dome port. So in theory, In order to have a dome port, I would need to start looking at the mark 2 series... For the price of a Sony Alpha a7 II, I could get the A7S (mk 1) and the a7s would be a lot better for what I need... (4k, and low light monster). Now if I have to get the A7S II, then the price would already drastically increase and its out of my budget. So its not worth it just for the dome port. I would love to know your suggestions. If I my setup is not worth it, if there is a better option for me... If the dome port is at all THAT necessary... If you could point out any flaws in this setup im thinking of... things I would eventually regret, I would be FOREVER thankful!! Should I still go for this setup with the A7 and sacrifice the dome port, in order to save as much money as I can? Of course im not expecting professional level pictures, but also not GoPro level pictures.. I want something that looks somewhat decent. I was not planning to exceed a budget of 1000 euros... (A7 + LENS + Housing would be a total of ca. 800-1000 (tops) euros, if I decide for the A7S instead, it would be a total of ca. 1250)

  3. Hi to all, I'm investing in my first supermacro wet lens. I have 2 macro lenses, Canon 60mm F2.8 macro and Tokina 100mm F2.8 Macro Pro. Some that Subsee gives sharper images and easier to focus, others say that it is heavy compared to Aquakos. Aquakos are cheaper and lighter and there are those who vouch for them. Anyone had experience with both? If I go what Aquako, what do you suggest iii or iv?
  4. Hi, I’m selling my RX100M2 setup, with everything needed for all kinds of underwater photography from macro to wide-angle. The entire package was purchased brand new from Bluewater in January 2014, and has been used on 3 trips, for a total of no more than 18 days of diving. Everything is still under warranty, and is in like-new condition. The only sign of wear is minimal lightening of the dark coat along the edges of the ultralight arms. Included are the following: - Recsea RX100 II underwater housing - YS-D1 Strobe Package - UWL-04 Fisheye Lens - Bluewater Macro Lens - all necessary adapters - Extra 8" Arm & Clamp The package above retails for $2,644 (see http://www.bluewaterphotostore.com/recsea-rx100II-ultimate-package). In addition to the package, the following are included as well: - Sony RX100 M2 camera (retail price $700) - Quick adapt system, to allow for on-the-fly changing of wet lenses underwater, so one can go from shooting a tiny nudibranch to filling the frame with a 2,000 pound manta on the very same dive (retail price $160) - Red filter for shallow water natural-light shooting (retail price $59) - External battery charger and 2 extra batteries, more than enough for a full day and night of shooting without recharging (retail price about $120) - 64 Gb type 10 memory card (retail price about $35) The RX100 M2 has been rightly hailed as a major breakthrough in the compact camera arena both above and below water, largely due to its huge sensor packed into a tiny point-and-shoot body. Here are some useful reviews: http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/sony-rx100-review http://www.backscatter.com/learn/article/article.php?ID=57#RX100 http://www.backscatter.com/learn/article/article.php?ID=57#PSindepth This entire setup retails for about $3,718. Considering the barely used condition, asking $3,100. I would like to sell as a package. I accept payment by PayPal only. Inquiries from serious potential buyers only, please. Pics of the rig below, if interested sample pics taken with this setup are available on request.
