Hi,

 

I've had my Olympus OM-D and Nauticam Housing with S2000 strobes for a couple of months now and am really happy with the results taking pictures. I have not done any video yet. 

 

For my upcoming trip to Komodo, I am considering leaving my stobes back home and shooting video only with my 8mm fisheye lens. Apparently, the currents can get so strong there, that taking pictures becomes almost impossible at some sites and I don't want the strobe arms to get in the way. Besides, I also want to travel with as little gear as possible.

 

Has anyone got some experience with videos and the OM-D Nauticam with 8mm fisheye? Can a red filter be attached to the 8mm lens, or is underwater white balance (using a white slate) the best way to go? I have a single Sola 2000 spot/flood attached to the cold shoe which gives a nice compact system. The flood is not wide enough to light up the 8mm fisheye, unless I get really close to the subject, but I am hoping this combination will give me decent results.

 

Thanks,

Andy
