Kenko - Nauticam Zoom/Focus gears for Kenko 1,4 TC

Techniques and Tips - Wetpixel :: Underwater Photography Forums - wetpixel.com
Hi All,

 

As you might have seen my previous post on Teleconverters and use with Full Frame bodies, I was wondering if someone has been experimenting with "stackable" zoom/focus gears?  I did see the "XIT404" system (also for Nauticam), but it seems they are not supplying anyting anymore...

 

I know Nauticam has not released a gear for every lens, to work with the Teleconverter.

However, I mainly would like to use a gear for the Tokina 10-17 (Canon), which Nauticam supplies a gear for, but also for the 100mm Canon macro f2.8L IS USM lens, of which I can find no reference...  If possible, I would like to try what it would do on the 16-35 f2.8 iii and the 24-70 f2.8 ii lenses (both Canon) underwater.

 

Since 3D printing has become so big over the past few years, I was wondering if anyone has been experimenting with making Zoom/Focus gears for the TC part, thus being able to stack the Nauticam gear I already have for the lens, and adding an addition, so the gear will work with the Teleconverter too?  Alternatively, if someone has experimented with just making the entire zoom/focus gear using a 3D printer? (Or something else, I am open to suggestions!).

 

Best regards,
