Nauticam WACP-2 anyone seriously considering it?

Recommended Posts

I have looked at a number of test images of the new wet optics from Nauticam. No doubt the optical quality is outstanding although the lens still has a mild barrel distortion and is therefore not a complete alternative to dome port.

The ergonomics and price point seem way out of reach though. The item weights more than camera and housing and the price is also the same of a full frame camera and housing.

I am wondering who is actually considering this port and for what?

I’ve opted for the WACP-1. Size and weight being my biggest ding against the -2.

Following my checks they have now updated the WACP-2 page with 0.57x magnification
Considering the focal range of WACP-1 vs 2 I would say that the combination 28-70 or 28-80 lens and WACP-1
Is more interesting than 16-35 and WACP-2
WACP-1 10-29 semifisheye
WACP-2 8-16 (7-14) or 9-20 (16-35) semifisheye
Unless those extra 10 degrees are a deal breaker the WACP-1 is a better candidate especially for video
