Does it make you swim around in circles? :)

Actually, I think it does Peter :)
Last time I used the lens I got separated from my buddy and ended up where I started the dive. Just kidding. It really works. I am used to wearing contact lenses and it solves the reading/focus issue for me which is a big challenge when you only have the option of manual focus on cameras such as Blackmagic cameras.
I hope others can benefit from this solution.

Hi guys,

I was thinking of the same prescriptiondivemask but then I run into the disposal contact lenses for close reading. You just wear one in one eye off course :) and it takes a bit adjusting to it.
It works and now I always wear one when shooting. As a refrence I use it with Blackmagic 2.5k & 4k cameras.

In Topic: fogging dome port and lens while video recording

Any other ideas or experiences like that? Am I right with my assumptions? Should I have always prepared the camera in an AC-controlled environment like inside the ship?

I always setup in AC places whenever available (boats or hotels). Done that in Dubai, Redsea & Malidives. Never got fogging issue. If I have to setup ouside in warm/humid places, fogging will occur when I hit the cooler ocean waters :)

Hi Jean,

I already invested in a Zen 8 inch dome with an Aquatica mount, can I use the same for your GH4 housing?

I have the panasonic 7-14 and contemplating to buy the faster 12-35mm 2.8 cause it's faster. Is the above dome good for such lenses?

Thani, have you thought of using the 4k on Youtube?  The Vimeo 720p just destroyed the video.
The topside shot at the end was very nice.

I have rendered it only at Full HD 1080p via resolve. Make sure you play it at Full HD resolution. Vimeo does a good job preserving the video especially when H.264 is used as a codec.

I think youtube compression is much more worse and 4k would be very heavy I thought.

The same version is available on YouTube:
