ReefNet's SubSee Magnifier is a high-quality close-up lens specifically designed for underwater photographers and videographers. It may be used on its own or mounted in a SubSee Adapter for maximum convenience. Its features include:
Large Diameter: A 52 mm diameter lens offers a wide field of view compatible even with full-frame DSLR cameras (36 mm x 24 mm sensors).
Multiple Power Options: Available in either +5 or +10 diopter versions. Choose the power best-suited to your style of photography, or get both for the most flexibility. The +10 version can increase your camera lens' magnification by up to 3.5x! The +10 diopter gives 50% magnification with a 60mm lens, and over 100% magnification with a 105mm lens.
Sealed, Multi-element, Coated Optics: Because SubSee's optics are air-sealed, they retain full power underwater. Multiple lens elements (either 2 or 4 depending on strength) virtually eliminate pincushion distortion and chromatic aberration. Furthermore, anti-reflective coatings on all lens surfaces increase image brightness.
Standard 67 mm Mounting Thread: The SubSee Magnifier offers an industry-standard 67 mm thread. Screws directly onto many underwater housing ports!

I couldn't ask for more in my SubSee +10. I use this with my Canon 5D3 and 100mm lens for small subjects, with ReefNet's flip diopter holder. I don't own the +5 and don't need it with this setup. Highly recommended.
Love the flexibility of the adapter to my setup. Works like a dream with the Canon 100mm. Highly recommended for the patient shooter who is willing to put the time in to maximize this products potential.
I have the SubSee +10 Diopter on a Sony Nauticam NEX7 housing with a Sony NEX7 with 18-55mm lens.
I found this to a great close up lens combination, at 55mm on the lens, it would make the subject really separate from the background.
It has a very narrow depth of field, but once you figure that out, it did a great job.
The lens is very heavy, so will make the setup very negative. We included large floats on the arms, and this worked out just about right.
Fantastic Marco clarity. Got to get close for focus ... but when you do ......WOW
I recently brought the SubSee +10 and Dual adapter in readiness for the +5 purchase from Blue Water Photo. I was glad I brought the dual adapter because if the +5 is anything like the +10 I will be very happy indeed. I use the system with a D300s in a Nauticam housing with a 105VRmm lens. The adapter is a must have piece of kit in my opinion due to the flexibility of being able to flip the lens in front of the port when you need it and flip it out when you want to shoot normal Macro. As for the lens itself well it was designed by one of the best Macro photographers around so there is no question about the build quality or the results in the images it produces. Being an Admin on the Underwater Macro Photographers FB Group I have seen many many superlative images from the SubSee lenses which is why I brought one. Thanks to Scott and the team at Blue Water for their professionalism and excellent service! Chris Spence
I bought both subsee adapter and subsee +10 diopter. I am using it with a Hugyfot housing for NIKON D7000 and a 85mm micro lens. The subsee adapter fit perfectly on the port but it sometimes can slide so it is necessary to be careful. The result with the subsee +10 diopter are perfect if you are close enough to the subject.
Thank you to Scott and his team for their professionalism.
Quality built diopter that works well with it's swing arm frame. The whole system is solid and functions very well. Has to be matched to your macro port. Shooting super macro with the diopter takes some practice but the results are eventually worth it.
This is a great diopter - very sharp with great images. This will push your limits as a macro photographer. I spent many frustrating moments trying to get something in view, let alone in sharp focus. But as with anything practice makes perfect, er I mean better each time. I would recommend starting with the +5 and progressing to the +10. However I started with the +10 as the +5 was not in stock... and I struggled. Make sure you know your macro craft before you add this. I used it with a 5D Mark III and 100mm macro - a shallow depth of field combo to start with. The 5D was up to the focusing task when the lens was placed in the right position - no infinity focus here! The SubSee flip-in / flip-out adapter is fantastic - pricey but does exactly what it supposed to do and well. I'm rambling a little here... but bottom line a recommended product.
