One of the more frustating (and expensive) factors of underwater  video/ photography is thet the newer/better? model almost never fits the older model's housing

"- Not ideal screen position - very close to you, but perhaps I just need to get used to that, but at the moment I'm holding it out in front more.

- Heavy

- As I'm recording in 10bit, I can't have the GH4's info displayed externally, so changing settings, I need to 'flip' the flame up to see the screen for changes for example to WB, ISO etc."



Agree, these are an issue with my shogun rig. With the size of the atomos screen you need to hold it out in front anyway to see the whole screen, unless you have geeko eyes.


I usually just flip the screen up for WB ect, although for a couple of stops to ISO and apperture just look at the waveform.  The clamp on the mounting makes it easy to adjust the position of the screen.  I did experiment with mounting the atomos on top of the GH4, so I could see both screens at once, but it made it  hard to control pitching  up and down.


Would you post some photos of your atomos housing with the door open and the recorder mounted. I am interested it what internal changes were made compared to the shogun version. Does the flame mount to the viewfinder door?   Is there room to have both batteries fitted to the flame?


Thanks, I'm envious aready.



edit to remove question about fans, you have already answered it!

That's really interesting to hear it's buoyant. Had visions of needing MORE arms.

Good to know. [emoji1303]

Initially I had problems getting the trim right and avoiding the lens pitching down. I ended up attaching a small trim weight pouch to a ball mount on the base of the  shogun housing. From your photo it seems  you could add the ball mount to the back of the housing instead.



Does the original Shogun fit into the new housing?

I'll agree at that to, to be honest, but these things grow and I've got bits here and there over the past 3 yrs. if I had 15-20k, I would of gone for a Raven, scarlet or FS5 or similar, alas I don't! [emoji17] Those dragons sure look the biz!

But apart from those units, I can't think of any pro-consumer camcorder that can do 4K in ProRes with such a decent viewfinder and lens flexibility.

But yeah. Size, weight and form factor could be a whole lot better!!!

Interested to see how buoyant the housing is. I have the previous shogun and its about 2lb positively buoyant. One you get the trim right the size is really not that much of an issue in many circumstances.


Even if it didn't offer 10bit recording, the size of the shogun viewfinder and focus peaking are increditably useful.

Rajah Ampat on a liveaboard. I did a trip on indosiren from Sorong to ambon, in late august, a couple of years ago. A good mix of muck macro and mantas. Not a budget option but well worth it.
