Sony AX100 question

10 December 2014 - 06:12 PM

I have a Sony AX100 & Gates housing. In trying to learn the camera I have been blessed with the following error message I find totally baffling.

 

If I press the PROGRAM AE button to try to get it into that mode, I get

 

"Set the adjustment for brightness to auto."

 

I am normally fairly opaque, but this time maybe it has gone over the top! I'm unable to get past this message to get to the PROGRAM AE mode. I can't find a button or a menu selection that has anything to do with brightness.

 

Would some kind soul point out the error of my ways so I can get this behind me and successfully select PROGRAM AE?

 

Frustratedly,

 

Tom

 

PS: The firmware version is 2.0


Light & Motion Bluefin Pro for Canon videocameras

22 August 2014 - 12:00 PM

Since the cameras have been sold, here's a revised ad for the housing:

 

Light & Motion Bluefin Pro with the OLED monitor back for Canon HF-G10, XA10 or HFS30 videocameras. Original cost was $3799.

 

It comes with the flat port (standard) and the Fathom 90 degree wide angle port, a $1799US option.

 

There's also a Stix float. Also includes two kinds of attachment bases for lighting (total four) , two for the one-inch ball, the other two for Locline arms. An XIT404 tripod base is also included (no legs).

The setup has been well used; the L&M coating has begun to depart. The housing had an overhaul last October at L&M; both handles were rebuilt at L&M in July 2014, six dives ago. I'd describe it as discolored appearing but 100% usable.

 

The Pelican case is included.

 

Since it was about $6000 total originally, I'd like $2250US or near offer.

 

If you have interest, want to make an offer or need more information, PM here or e-mail cobra521 at gmail dot com

 

Thanks,

 

Tom

FOR SALE:

 

Complete Bluefin Pro L&M housing with Canon XA10 HD videocamera, Fathom 90* super wide lens, XIT404 Float, Pentamirror and tripod mount.

 

Also included case and spares.

 

It has been well used; alas the L&M coating hasn't held up as well as hoped, but all items are 100% functional. Housing had an overhaul last October at L&M, Handles were rebuilt at L&M in July 2014, six dives ago. I'd describe it as scruffy appearing but completely usable.

 

The housing comes with both lenses: flat port and 90*. Glass is perfect although there are signs of use on the metal parts.

 

The XA10 camera comes with all manuals and accessories including the XLS microphone mount, in its original box.

Wanted: Pair of filters for Sola 4000 lights

30 December 2013 - 05:21 AM

It's time to admit it: I don't have a clue what happened to my Sola 4000 filters. Sigh...

 

So if anyone out there has a pair that I could buy reasonably, I'd like to hear from you!
