Howdy All,

 

Sorry to ask such a basic question, but any pointers / tips with shooting with a GH3 underwater?

 

Saturation Levels

Colors

...other settings?

 

Also lenses - I have lens from my previous E-PL3 (8mm and 60mm) but looking at wide angle video. Any examples of using the 12-35mm (is it wide enough - I think 84o) as the 7-14mm and 9-18mm don't have any OIS.

 

Thanks

 

Richard


Regards, Richard

Hi richard,

On this forum you will find everything and more on GH3 but... For land use. I have a GH2 but yours it's a different beast.

http://www.personal-...lks/discussions

E.g.

http://www.personal-...deo-settings/p1

23 pages... My best wishes

For lens it's plenty of suggestions here. Same hints will apply for all M43 camera.

PS
When using search function here, by default results are limited to six months or similar. This is the reason a lot of people doesn't find anything :)

Thanks Davide,

 

Yeah - sadly I have ready all 23 pages already! So, so many conflicting opinions on which setting to go for...

 

But I think:

'Natural' Profile - Appears to be the 'flattest' profile

-3 for Contrast,

 0 for NR,

-3 for Saturation

-3 for Sharpness

 

Thats my best guess for now... lots of people run it all with -5 to try and get the most unprocessed file possible.

...I really need to test it more underwater.

 

As to searching - Yeah and nothing less than 4 characters either for searching either, so search 'GH3' is impossible too!


Regards, Richard

Ok I see what you mean. People there are obsessed with skin tones. UW it's a completely different game. Try for yourself.

Regarding search... Look on my profile content/topic/post. I argued on most of m43 topics :)
