The Kit Bag...

We use the best possible gear for the job, combining this with sound photography principles and many years experience in image processing ensures that all prints are of the highest quality available.

Nikon Gear

 

We use top-spec Nikon gear for underwater photography including full frame cameras with a range of wide angle and macro lenses. The D850 is the workhorse with huge resolution, and a smaller size and weight. The D6 is a recent purchase geared towards increased low-light photography and fast action. 

  • D6 camera

  • D850 camera 

  • 180-400mm F4E TC1.4 FL ED VR

  • 17-35mm F4 wide angle lens

  • 105mm F2.8 macro lens

  • 8-15mm f3.5-4.5 fisheye lens

  • Sigma 14-24mm f2.8mm ART lens (Nikon mount)

 

Nauticam Gear

 

We use Nauticam housings and wet lenses to safely operate underwater.

  • NA-D850 housing

  • 230mm optical glass dome port

  • Macro port 87

  • Extended Macro Wide Lens (EMWL) system

  • Zen 100mm mini dome port (Nauticam mount)

  • Various brackets, mounts, and fibre optic cables

We use Sea & Sea YSD2J strobes and Sola & Motion for underwater light. Peter Mooney of Scubapix, Cairns, looks after our underwater gear needs with great customer sercive. 

Canon Gear

 

Most of our above water photography relies on a Canon system. For bird and mammal photography we combine the action stopping power of the 1-series with super-telephoto lenses, this allows us to capture images from a distance. Most other creatures are captured with wide-angle or macro lenses.

  • 1DX
