25 September 2018 - 04:27 AM

In the end mirrorless is the future!

Competition is good. Exciting time ahead!!!


Usually this is the best source for news and video oriented musings:








IMHO for UW use M43 is a better format

Blackwater dives and filming

01 September 2018 - 03:19 AM

Hi all,

There's a lot of fuss and hype about blackwater diving nowadays.
All topics I found are about photography. Nothing on video.
I came across few videos on YouTube:



I even found an interesting video made here in Italy:


Looking at the PBS teaser I see an interesting configuration. The guy has two Sola 4000 each in front of the other straight in front of the camera. He "simply" put the critter between the lights. Maybe with this conf he can even prefocus.

On the PBS video the guy has some light orthogonal to the lens lighting a self made piping...

So here are my questions.
Which lens and gear are best suited for blackwater filming?

Last but not the least... Has anyone ever organized a blackwater dive?
I find only tips on photograph critters. I have a boat and I would like to organize one.

Hi all,

A quick question. Do you know if the plastic magnetic circular switch is user serviceable?

Last week I dove in a river with a lot of mud and now the plastic ring is a little bit though.
I tried with compressed air, water... I guess it should be opened for a complete cleaning.
