In Topic: Sony PXW-FS7 underwater

06 January 2017 - 09:15 AM

Hi Ante,

I am currently experimenting with the FS7 in a Sealux housing and have done a recent trip with it. I will posting a video in a week or so.
I have used the Sealux Sony EX1 housing before and the build quality was good. Altough the FS7 housing is a good value for money, I have some reservations. I will be shedding light on the usability of the housing later.
The camera itself is good especially if used with lights and Slog3 hence you can edit the footage easily. But the whole setup is quite heavy to move around on land. I was using a wheelbarrow to carry it around on the island. In the water it is quite balanced (it needs extra weight ~ 2kg to balance with an 8 inch dome). I'll post my feedback on the setup after posting the video. My advise is not to rush and invest in such an expensive setup hence this year new cameras are coming to market with hopefully a 422 10 bit internal recording such as the GH5.

Tom,

I really appreciate your clear reply.
I just wanted to gather some usability stats When it comes to lighting which will be helpful for all us :) However, It is disappointing to see that only 7 out of 74 only voted. That is not even 10%. Come on guys, please vote.

It is good that somebody is thinking of underwater specific action cam :)
In addition to good optics, I hope they get the auto-white-balance & the light sensitivity working correctly.

Amazing clip. Great low light demonstration. Made feel immersed.

Can you share daylight clip of this setup?
