View Full Version : Finally LF gear for Underwater
I always knew there had to be gear out there to take your LF camera on your next diving trip - for starters here is a lens for that:-) http://cgi.ebay.com/Sironar-Copal-1-5-6-100mm-Underwater-Camera-Lens-Water_W0QQitemZ7537785235QQcategoryZ30076QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
I am sure you can get the waterproof housing for your camera from the same seller!
1-2-4-8-15-30-60-125-250-500... That must be the depth meter, but is it in meters or feet?
Hold on... "Made in Germany", so it must be meters. And I guess "B" means "Boat" (i.e. at the surface), but what is "T"?
I would have expected "B" and "T" to be a means of adjusting pressure differential between bottom and top. Hopefully the cell spacing has been adjusted to compensate for the refractive index difference between water and air

B is for Boat, and T is for Torpedo! I bet that the numbers indicate range to target.
This lens is for a submarine! I always wondered how they knew where they were underwater. This lens explains everything!
"T" would be for "tauchen" which is German for submerge, as is "Tauchen das U-Boot"
Give the seller a break, they're Texans after all . . . .

I just noticed that a potential bidder had asked the seller a question regarding the lens. To save you from having to go to the auction, here's a copy and paste.........
Q: Have you tried the lens under water to test the shutter??? thanks, jay....
A: Hello, I have not tested anything. I did work the shutter at the counter when the seller was here, and it worked, but I didn't put it under water. I thought it is supposed to be inside the canister with the camera and would not get wet. Please let me know. Thanks, Ryan
