Topics I've Started

GoPro, ActionCam X7 or ?

30 May 2014 - 12:15 AM

Good morning

 

Looking for a supplementary camera (video oriented) for my work (marine ecologist / cartographer)  and having no great expectations about the image quality i want your view.

 

Which of the above mentioned or any other camera ?

 

The use will be the recording of seascapes (mediterranean reefs, sand banks, seagrass meadows, etc) for habitat mapping and for recording the biota.

If needed we have the equipment for a "pro" result but is bulky and we need something "consumable"

 

Any opinion/though is welcome.

 

Depth of our work is max 55m.


Aquatica 40D internal rotation system

25 May 2014 - 11:59 AM

Hello Wetpixel community

 

I face an issue with my Aquatica housing and i need a help as i cannot solve it by myself (i try lots of different solves but nothing work).

 

As you can see in the image the red cirlced part is the one that rotate the back control of the camera and change the aperture as well as other controls. This part doesn't function as it has and i have to rotate it lots of times in order to chane it - it spins and glides. I change ths small rubber ring but no solution. I add some more rubber on, nothing. I assume that the problem comes from the green string.

 

 

What can i use in order to replace the green string ?

 

Or any other opinion / solution ?

 

Does anybody face similar issue in the past ?

Focus knobs for replacement

27 April 2014 - 01:47 AM

Hello Wetpixel community,

 

I have a minor issue and am looking for suggestions.

I have an Aquatica 40/50D Canon underwater housing which has the old focus knobs.

These are not so easy to be controld by using gloves.

 

Apart from the XIX 404 focus knobs replacement, do we have other solutions ?

Anybody who has replace them with the new Aquatica ?

Any idea where to find them as well as the price ?

 

Dimitris
