Thinking about getting this but I don't see many reviews on it. Anyone have experience with it? I ordered the long one for my mirrorless camera and was wondering if anyone had any issues with it like it leaking or anything
Awesome thanks for the reply.I use the small one normally and it works great and no leaks.
just odered the extra long one which would allow me to get closer I believe to corals deeper in the tank. I'm more worried about having to zoom much if I'm using a shorter lense as then the edges of the porthole would show. I'll be receiving mine in few days and will be able to give a better answer.
curious to see what support says. I've been waiting for these to come in stock: https://buildinganobsession.com/shop/camera-tubeSo I just received mine today and it cracked within 5 minutes of me trying to get it setup. I was applying the screws to the housing to secure my lens and one of the screws instantly cracked the side of the housing and chipped off a big piece. This is really disappointing because I was barely getting it tightened down and it seemed to have snapped at the slightest bit of pressure that was applied to it.
It's pretty badly made as far as materials come. The see through acrylic on the bottom had most of its protective film already peeled off and it was pretty scratched. The orange filter it came with had pretty bad chipping on the edges.
I contacted their support and asked for an exchange because I'm hoping I just got a bad piece.
Never even got a chance to use it.
All I can say is when you receive yours be gentle with how you tighten it around your lens. The plastic is incredibly cheap.
That was honestly looks like it's better made. I sent them pictures of the cracked piece and acrylic so hopefully I get it resolved by tomorrow.
