Yeah, like that. Looks like a pretty good angle ergonomically, though it is a bulky piece of kit indeed.
Yeah. Its not small (due to float arms) and finding a bag that it fits on the boat hasnt been successful..
Do you mean the reflections off the window of the nauticam Shogun housing? That's what's causing problems?
Yeah the window. The angle of the screen seems to give me really strong reflections of myself. Im sure some matte protector will fix it
So at the end of the day, have you done any sort of testing comparing the highest quality recording you can get from the Shogun (is that 4k60p in Prores 422 HQ?) vs the 400mbs internal 10bit4:2:2 recording? Any noticable differences in terms of macroblocking, etc?
No. I havent. As I havent purchased any V60 or V90 SD cards that work at 400Mbps. Dont see the point as I do it straight to the SSD.
But the Inferno at 4K@60p is 1660Mbps vs the 400Mbps internally and 10Bit too. Which I do find a big difference (you would get that benefit with the internal 10Bit vs 8bit also)
Trying to justify the extra price. I mean, the Shogun is definitely the brightest and largest of the bunch, so as a monitor, I'm sure it's awesome. But it's also the bulkiest..
If I didnt have it from my GH4 setup, I personally think recording internally to a V90 card and running a cheaper / smaller monitor would be easier. But I got it so Ill use it and I dont regret, as it is a joy to use underwater :-)
Is it negatively bouyant in the housing?
I dont know the weight of the shogun part. But for reference:
1x Macro35 Port
1x WWL-1 (including its buoyancy collar)
Requires 2x 70x220mm Float arms and that isnt even enough to make it neutral.
