In Topic: Footage from LUMIX G80/85 in IKELITE Housing

13 September 2017 - 11:52 AM

Hi Mattdiver. Thank you for your kind words. Some of the clips had a ti y bit of tweaking or boosting to auto levels in post, but not much. I used a Magic Filter, internally, and shot auto white balance up to around 10 metres, after tbat I focised on the white sand bottom, which did a good job down to around 35 metres with no lights. It's my first time with the camera and next year I'm sure I'll get better results.

Corrinek, thankyou also. I only ever used the red filter, which did a great job, although I may try next time without the filter to see how it copes with white balance. My personal feeling is that below 10 metres uou could probably get great results without the filter.

Glad you're here Bob. Its a Titan Trigger Fish and yes, he scratched my dome port!
I also wanted to publicly thank you, here, for your patient and invaluable advice you so kindly gave me, prior to my trip. You're a true gentleman and a scholar, and such people make forums such as this truly worthwhile.
Best wishes, Bob.

PS: My wifes pictures with the GX80/85 are to follow!

Haha. Rest assured I'm patient my friend. Unless I spend a fortune on equipment then find out they've released the equipment I wanted in the first place

Bob. You're a true gentleman. Can't thank you enough for your help and thoughts. There's so little info out there about this camera and it's capabilities, which is surprising given the length of time the housing has been available. I guess you're the 'pioneer', and I shall be joining you this summer with my own efforts in Egypt. I have ordered the IKELITE housing in a dome port, which accommodates a lot of lenses, including the 14-42mm Lumix Vario PZ, the 12-32kit lens AND the Olympus 12-50mm should I elect to get that lens too.
