Does it fit the Nauticam Gx80 housing?

To be clear, I'm talking about the LED trigger, not the camera ;)


I see :D Unfortunately no one shared a picture on the housing:(. However, it's not too difficult to fit an LED, a small circuit and a coin battery with a little DIY.

Am probably going to buy the GX85 in a new Nauticam housing.  This camera has all the feature of the GX8 Less the 20mp sensor.  I would put it between the GX7 and GX8 in size and specs.  It is about $500 less for camera and this camera comes with an internal flash so no extra there.  It would seem to be a natural fit to my Pany 8mm FE and came be setup behind the 4.33 inch dome port easily.  The stabilization and auto focus are also better than GX7.

For still images the GX7 for me is a better option higher sync speed and longer battery. Stabilisation is irrelevant in the range of shutter speeds you use underwater for photos and with very wide lenses. For video instead GX80/85 all the way

Does anyone know if the GX85 accurately white balances at depth or if it requires a red filter to do so?
