Hi guys -

Can someone let me know the following about the :

- Is it possible to use back button AF on the Nauticam housing for this camera, and if so, is the button at an ergonomically sensible location?

- Does the Nauticam housing allow direct movement of the AF point (IE, without needing to press any button)

- Any unexpected gotchas or other issues with usability as far as this housing goes?

TIA!

I have the Mk1. I assume they are similar.
Yes, the thumb button normally to start video can be reprogrammed to be focus. Very conveniently located. Moving the AF point involves several button pushes.

Thanks for that.

Re AF switches - I assume you use the direction arrows to move the AF point around. But is it direct access, or do you have to press another button to engage "AF point shift mode" first?

(Hope I am phrasing myself coherently. On the road and in time zone hell)
