    Hi
    I bought my X-T2 a few months back and have really enjoyed it - I also scuba dive so a plan formed..

    Is it hard to get a housing in Manila!!
    But Nauticam NA-XT2, Retra strobes and 60mm macro in hand...off I went to Anilao

    Still learning - I also need to find out file size max!!

    Nicely done!

    Coincidentally I'm leaving for the Philippines tomorrow morning to do the very same thing! I have the very same setup as you. I've used that setup in March in Cozumel as well. I think it has great potential, it's just a matter of adjusting to this new setup. Before this I used a Nikon D7000 with the 60 and 105 macro lenses, a bit of a different feel that's for sure. I was really hoping that Nauticam would get a port done for the 80mm macro, but alas, I'll have to go with the 60mm again. I did pick up Nauticam's wet lenses to give me some better magnification. I'm curious how well they will work. If I manage to get anything I'm happy with, I'll definitely be posting some pictures on the forum.

    I am "told" that it's possible to use an extension on the port for the 80 but haven't seen it yet...

    SMC-1?
    Interested to see what they allow... I mainly dive in Anilao as it's 3 hrs max from Makati - so it means I can day trip at a push...

    Awesome diving - I intend to take an UW course in 2 weeks with Mike Bartick... so here's hoping I get better
