the ISO button on the right/top side of the camera will certainly be accessible by housing manufacturers. However, with the right hand already so busy during uw shooting (focus initiating, shutter release, change of aperture and shutter speed, stop flash, start video etc.) and now in addition to change the ISO sensitivity, this seems to me a step back in ergonomics. Hope there is still another button to reassign the change in ISO to be used with the left hand (although I understand that the Mode button cannot be used for that). let's see!


But for me there is anyways no real reason to upgrade, neither for camera nor the housing (and thus even saves a ton of money...)

In Topic: Subtronics Strobes 270 vs 270 Fusion

I have two 160 Fusions and like the setup very much. It is slick and small (the 160) and can be used for stills and video, interchangeably. I also believe one does not need the 270 power; I almost never use more power than 1/4 of the 2 x 160. The real issue of using the video lights on the fusions is the battery consumption, which may be tricky. If you shoot both stills and video interchangeably this is a good and convenient way to go. Sometimes when knowing beforehand to shoot videos primarily I add a Keldan lamp and this gives me a total of almost 10'000 Lumen.
