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.

They go under the ball mounts on the flexitray/ easitray handles, but he are different models to suit different  Nauticam handles/ housings.


Best bet would be contact reefphoto or backscatter about one for your specific setup.

There are two solutions. Nauticam USA have suggested using tape to stick a magic filter to the rear of the 7-14mm. I believe Chris Parsons used this method.


The alternative is: the rear filter holder,Part number VXQ1911 Frame, from the panasonic 8mm will fit the 7-14mm with some minor modifications. You need to remove part of a plastic raised ring on the lens side of the holder.
