CP+ 2012 in Yokohama

Posted in FIX housings, Trade Fair on 2月 18, 2012 by fisheyejapan

The last day of the CP+, Camera & Photo Imaging Show 2012 in Yokohama, I finally got the chance to go to visit. All booths were crowded and you had to wait for at least an hour to get your hand on the new cameras. I’ve decided to forget about all models I wish I had a time to play with, and went directly to the Canon’s booth to scout the new G1X. Not only because on the specs it seems to be a pretty nice piece of art, but mostly because our next housing in the FIX line-up will nestle this little devil.
I got lucky that there were few of them on the exhibit so I the time I’ve spent in the line waiting wasn’t that long.
As for the first impression – the G1X feels better in the hand then the G12. The camera is just right weighted for its category. The buttons and control wheels share the same layout as the previous G12,well accessible and intuitive. The dual control wheel gives you smooth control over the exposure compensation and dedicated shooting mode. Comparing to previous G models, the G1X sports the pop-up type flash.
The build-in zoom lens enables to shoot from wide to telephoto. Now, that will be quite a challenge to be able to use all the feature of this came on its full power underwater. How to accommodate the fisheye port or the wet macro lens with the new housing? My head already starts to hunting for some clues and solutions.
The sale is scheduled for the spring, somewhere around the April and May so be ready.

Marine Diving Fair 2011

The postponed Marine Diving Fair 2011 is on. The reason for it’s delay was the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit Japan four months ago. And as a silent reminder of the disaster, the “tsunami survivor” is exhibited on our booth.

This year, we secured the place right next to the entrance so be sure to don’t miss us while rushing in.

Our booth

Full range of the Nauticam housings is on the exhibit together with our originally developed FIX line of underwater lights and housings. Most of the visitors are interested in the powerful FIX Aquavolt 5000 with stepless output up to 5,000 lumens and optional remote controller and FIX S95 housing build for the Canon PowerShot S95 compact camera. Original and third-party accessories makes the FIX S95 one of the most valuable and requested UW compact systems on the present market.

Two greats; Whale shark and the FIX S95

The printed catalogue is gave for free and our staff is ready to help you to decide which underwater photography system fits your needs. Please come to visit and have a nice time.
