Local diving conditions have reduced some what this week with vis 5-6m with current and alot of particle/weed in the water. Under these conditions I decided to try the Aquatica 100mm Minidome and extension #48453 on my D500 housing and use with the Tokina 10-17mm with Kenko 1.4x teleconverter and try and get some CFWA. The idea was to greatly reduce the working distance in the low vis on some local subjects and see how the minidome and Tokina 10-17mm with a teleconverter works. I dont often use the minidome locally as I prefer the larger 8 inch Dome due to the balance and also the ease of aligning the camera for stetched out shooting from the hip style of shooting often used.

So far the Aquatica AD500 housing has worked flawlessly with only a couple of teething issues with the D500 camera itself. Namely rear LCD brightness and issue with battery life (turned off features like Wi-Fi and touch screen which solved the problem) and sent back older En-el15 batteries to Nikon for free replacement to the updated batteries for the D500 (sent back 4 older batteries from my D7000 and hopefully getting 4 brand new ones for the D500).

Tokina @ 10mm with 1.4x TC

 

I am impressed how the mini dome with Tokina and teleconverter worked on sharks. Mine you I had to get really close and have the housing on out stretched arm to get the shot.
