Thanks Richard, that make sense. Too bad I haven't had the chance to do a night dive with the DM60 yet, otherwise I will be able to gauge how wide the light beam is.

 

What kind of working distance are we talking about with these 12000 lumen cob light when use during the day, say on a sunny day at 90ft? My experience so far is no more than 2-3 ft from the subject.

I have the Archon DM60, which has the flat port, how can you tell it's 90 or 110 degree. The light beam seems quite spread when I use it.

I have both. On my trip to French Polynesia I used the GH5S underwater. It looked ok when casually checking the footage on a notebook during the trip. But during editing back home on a big screen iMac, the Micro-jitters were very apparent. and with strong currents you could „see“ the drag more than what I got with the GH5. I could fix some issues in post-stabilisation, but many not.

I‘d certainly go for the stabilized GH5 again next time and not the „s“.

 

That's just what I thought with the GH5S short coming, the BlackMagic Cinema 4K will have the same issue. The micro jitters could be smooth out in post such as using warp stabilizer, but you would have to sacrifice 5% of resolution to crop. Ideally a camera that do not have IBIS should shoot at 4.5K so there would be plenty of room to crop for stabilization in post.

What do you guys think of the shortcoming of not having IBIS? I know a guy who said the IBIS in the GH5 made shooting video super great. Those who have GH5 and GH5S, how bad is the IBIS difference?

 

I have been shooting video seriously for about 3 years, most time I can get the footage stable depends on dive condition and how relax I am. However, 90% of the time I still get micro jitters shake regardless how I configure my rig to make it neutral/slightly negative. IBIS would have taken care of these micro jitters.

Depends on the price of the housing, the Pocket Cinema 4K probably is not that attractive due to the fact that it doesn't have IBIS. The Panasonic full frame has IBIS, even thought it will be twice the price of the Cinema 4K, but the Panasonic full frame seems to be more "future proof" for a while in term of image quality.
