Hi Peter,

 

Thanks for the reply.

My Nauticam housing and the rest of the toys will arrive in a week, I hope.

Can't wait to mess with it.

 

I tested the GH4 with 12-35mm Panny on land. Using 4K, 3840 pixel, focus is slow but it hunts a bit even when subject in middle field.

Also being a camera type lens and not a camcorder or say an RX100, zooming on a subject with bright background will cause insane flicker on the bright areas....ha ha ha.

 

Since it is mirrorless, I wonder why the video focus is not as smart as my Sony NEX-7 and flicker free like NEX-7 when zooming.

 

Anyway, overall I am happy with new nice toys to play with....

 

Thanks n Dive Safe

SPP

Sony A6000 video autofocus is marvellous by the way check that one out

Guys, a quick info.

 

The new Nauticam 180mm dome for the 7-14mm is it glass or plastic? Does it need an extra ring?

 

I found it on several shop online (I guess) but always without info if it's for mirrorless system or DSRL.

 

I got behind on new toys lately.

 

Thanks

Hi Davide, I have that Nauticam dome (prototype) and it's glass, no need extension for 7-14mm.

I think they'll release it soon.

Ah ok, so the 1000USD 180mm dome I see on several site it's not the new one.

It seems that vendors get bored to add some specs...

 

Thanks.

How is the balance and bouyancy with the glass dome? What size floats and arms are those shown in the photo.

 

Cheers

recd,

Balancing is better then 6inch acrylic dome.
I'm using
Ø60x200mm carbon fibre float arm (Buoyancy 240g) x 2ea and it's still negative (which I prefer).
