    Hi Rui. We've not met an anamorphic yet with a good close focus to work with a dome port, even 10". Arri, Cooke, Hawk, doesn't' matter. So, most shooting anamorphics use a diopter with good results.

    Known problems regarding focus or sharpness uw?
    How about anamorphic adapters to be used with convencional spherical lens?

    Please share your own experience or useful links that you know about this.

    I'm using a Weapon MG 6K in a Nauticam Weapon LT housing, canon EF mount and Nikon mount.

    Thanks,

    Hi John,

    Yes, as far as I know, diopters are a must for most anamorphic lens. Thanks for the input.

    So, anyone have some links with examples of footage made with anamorphic lens underwater or any other thing uw anamorphic related?

    Thanks,

    Glaswerks anamorphics have some incredible close focus.

    And in a pinch, the Atlas 60mm can get in tight.

    That's encouraging news. Specs are available for certain lenses e.g. 50mm @.52m / 20.5" MOD. Length considered, a 10" dome should work. Curious to see the specs for 25/ 32 / 40.

    As some of you may know, Tom Hamilton - the Reduser that started the Bubble Blowers thread - passed away in February after a 14 month battle with cancer. His wife Lisel Hamilton has posted a thread in the FOR SALE section under her name for his RED Helium package and Gates housing. I mentioned to Lisel that potential buyers might be concerned with a sale by a new user with only a few posts, so I would post here to let the Bubble blowers know that I knew Tom well and the sale is legitimate.

    Tom's day job was as a pilot for Virgin America/Alaska Airlines and as pilots often are he was very careful handling and maintaining his gear. IIRC he got the Helium and housing only a short time before he became ill so I imagine the gear is low hours and very good condition.

    RIP Tom....
