@bubffm - thanks, yes, I guess to sell housings, they need to generate some excitement about the camera that goes in the housing.

 

So, for someone coming from the AX100, how hard was it to get used to the ergonomics of the GH5?  I really like being able to go from shark or turtle-sized portraits, down to macro stuff on the same dive by zooming and using a flip in wet lens.  Having one button white balance on my right side handle is also really nice.  Anything else that you can offer on the change from a dedicated camcorder to a mirrorless camera doing video?  Thanks!

Check McMaster-Carr, they have a huge selection of O-rings.

There is finally an underwater review of the Sony FDR-AX700:

They seem pretty excited about it - those of you who are more savvy than I am (which is most everyone here), what are your thoughts?  Has Sony finally gotten a good underwater white balance?

Can anyone recommend a brand of "stick on" readers for the dive mask?   I don't have time to get them build and permanently fused to my mask, so I am looking at a temp solution with stick on type.  By the way I purchased a mask that has them built in on the glass, but that mask is not really good on my face (leaks).

 

I have been using the ones from optx 20/20 for several years now with good results:

Make sure to follow their directions for installation, though.
