Nauticam G7X with CMC

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

yesterday i went diving with my new "set-up" gears

I added 2 Mega arms Inons for my kits

here is the picture





I was surprised by how heavy this kits.

Last week I went diving without Inon mega arms. I was Super heavy underwater. I can't take a macro picture by using one hand only, it was too heavy...


Then yesterday, after i added 2 mega arms inons, It's still negative buoyancy :o

I thought It would be neutral underwater :(

Maybe for the next dive I will add 2 nauticam carbons arms (25cm each) for this kit.

anyway, here are some pics from yesterday :)

Congratulations for your pictures!


Regarding the floats:
I have a Nauticam LX100 with 2 INON Z-240 and a SubSee +10 diopter and my rig is very heavy too.

I bought some years ago this http://www.easydive.it/it/galleggianti/51-easyfloat.html it's a sheet of hard, closed cell foam probably used to build deep-sea buoys and yoi can easily cut it with a circular saw and sand it.


I cut it in rectangular stripes of the size of ULCS arms, glued 3 of them together and - to add strengt - coverd them with a thin layer of marine epoxy.


3/4 of this sheet will make my Hugyfot D800 housing with dome slightly positive so i can add lead fishing weights to make the housing perfectly neutral.

For my LX100 rig i use about half of the sheet and have added 4 big stix floats and it is slightly negative with the FIX NEOS 2500 video light attached.


Below you see a picture of the floats i built and still held together with zip-ties


It is my personal believe that air filled floats are not very useful (except made of expensive carbon) as the pressure resistant housing add some extra weight.

Brought CMC with my Meikon housing and found it is not compatible like Subsee.

Very nice setup!

Are you happy with the i-Torch focus light?I have almost the same settings, but I use a iDiving 2500 lumens focus light. the torch is great, the problem is that its very very heavy.

What I do to compensate the negative buoyancy of the camera, I add fishing buoys on the arms, and they help a lot.
