I just returned from a trip to Costa Rica for 2 weeks and put together a dive video.  It was my first real test with the LX10/Nauticam housing.  I was fairly impressed with the exception of the stabilization in 4k, I was in pretty strong current/surge so that may have played a part. I'm also extremely picky when it comes to stable shots.  1080 worked well when I slowed it down 50%. 

 

Everything was shot in ambient light from 30-90 feet (no filter), I had a light but didn't use it.  Color corrected in Davinci Resolve (free version)

 

Mostly 1080 footage, some 4k and 120fps as well.

Thanks for posting.  Nice video, and that looks like some fun diving.

Can you comment more on your experience with the UWL-H100?  How much of that video used it?  I have the same combo, but have never used a wet WA (or an LX10...).

Hi Lee, all the shots were with the UWL-h100 and 95% of them were at full wide angle. For video I think it’s a very good combo, in 4K since the LX10 starts at 36mm, it’s almost a necessity. Hope that helps.

I should add that the lens actually touches the nauticam port (which is good for the quality) but does leave some marks. It’s not in the field of view with or without the Inon on. I tried adding a spacer but it impacted the video quality. It’s also very heavy;)
