EMWL with non-Nauticam Housing?


Recommended Posts

Hy to everybody!

Has anybody tried to use Nauticam's EMWL on a non-Nauticam Housing? As far as I have seen, the Nauticam bayonett-mount has to be screwed on a 67mm threaded port and the macro lens has to match. But would it work on an Ikelite or Aquatica or Sea&Sea housing? Could there be some drawbacks in combination with other housing manufacturers?

Thanks a lot! Any advice will be sincerly appreciated!

A key variable is how well the macro port fits the lens.  Nauticam ports are very good in this regard.  Some other brands are not as good and the lens sits back a bit from the glass.  Doesn't impact shooting with a macro lens but can be a problem with wet optics.

 

Also as far as I am aware the EMWL components connect via the Nauticam bayonet system.  The Bayonet adapter can screw onto a and M67 port but the port needs to be suitable.  If the flange around the m67 thread is too wide it can't be screwed on.  See the photo in this post:

So EMWL and Subal….. Get behind me, Satan. 🤢😱

Do I detect a refresh of the car stereo system parable, Tim?  We'll all be on your side... apparently an EMWL only costs $200, doesn't it? 😝

Brilliant! How about I go for $199? Always a convincing figure I thought.....
