The Inferno (NA-FLAME) is also getting the M24 port too.

Will post up about the new GH5V and revised Inferno housings shortly....

Richard can they modify the original housing or need a new one to upgrade to version V?

Im thinking that its a purchase new housing type upgrade...

Nauticam offers trade in if you buy a ninja V or flame housing as I understanding it
The original housing cant be modified

To add some colour I have done some research on the AVC intra vs prores 422 and 422 HQ. For practical purposes there is no difference with 422 actually avc intra 400 outperforms it. With 422 HQ there is some potential difference especially at 30 fps but can you really see it in underwater footage
Obviously the ninja V also gives the benefit of an external monitor that especially for macro is important
In terms of 60p I am of the opinion that except near surface shots with a school of sardine swarming is not required

There is a real need of an external monitor under $1600 (including the actual monitor) on that I have no doubts

Thus far other than the initial launch I cant find much about them... starting to think the 502 and nauticam may be the best option

Hey,

 

I’ve had the prototype of the Aquatica 5HD monitor since March and been getting to grips with it a fair bit. It’s the first monitor I’ve used underwater or otherwise but generally I’m very pleased. In fact, I’m now at the stage of “How did I ever live without a monitor?!!”

 

I find the focus peaking and histogram display most useful as well as the obvious 5.7” inch screen for ease of composition. Up until now I’ve been using it with my D850 which has gone well, but I’m shortly going to using it exclusively with the Nikon Z6 & 7 when the Aquatica housing arrives later next week. I think the monitor will pair very well with these cameras and their phase detect hybrid auto focus systems.

 

A point worth noting is this a monitor only and not an external recorder. But as far as I’m concerned, the price point is good and it works really well. It’s made my transition from shooting only stills into shooting video as well very pain free.

 

Happy to answer any more questions about it.

 

Cheers,

The Aquatica monitor is not even close to the Shinobi specs and functions and there are almost indentical inprice with the Nauticam housing and Ninja V. I cant see how the Aquatica is a better option.

I purchased the Aquatica 5HD Monitor three weeks ago and have nothing to say but positive feedback for the product. I recently used it for videography and photography on a dive trip to Newfoundland and found it incredibly useful for both applications. The unit fits perfectly above my AGH5 housing and doesn't add any negative buoyancy to my camera setup. 

 

I thought I may have difficulty pulling off vertical photos with the monitor, but with the correct length of arms it doesn't get in the way when changing the lightening positioning. It is also highly effective for getting nice close up shots with the amount of vision the monitor provides. 

 

Over all, I'm very impressed with 5HD monitor and would highly recommend it!
