Cheaper Camera Trim Weight Options/Ideas?

Recommended Posts

Instead of spending over $400 on these nauticam trim weights: https://www.nauticam.com/products/0-5kg-trim-weights-for-16227-4-pcs I was wondering if anyone had a good alternative using 0.5lb to 2lb dive weights that were low profile and easy to mount utilizing some screws and washers.  I may have to just go with Nauticam on this but it seems like a lot of $$ for some lead and screws.

About a year and a half ago, I got a package of wheel balance weights on Amazon and glued about a pound's worth to the back of my dome - they come on sticky pads so nothing extra is needed. Not a single one has loosened so far, and 7 grams per weight allow for fine-tuning of buoyancy and trim.

I think they are Tungsten. But they are clearly very proud of them.

Not knowing your housing...do you have any holes on the base plate to bolt anything to?

I will try to find a link to the weights.

tungsten.com sells to the public in small quantities. They advertise on Ebay. A 1.5 inch cube weighs 2.2 pounds. If you contact them they might be able to sort out your weight problem.

Good luck and I hope this helps.
