David,

When doing aerial can you still have a view/monitor what your camera is shooting so you can compose your shots properly or is it just a wild guess?

;) I know this is an underwater forum but your topic is quite an interesting one :)

Actually sometime I believe having an areal shot of some dive sites like rock formations and/or small islands can make a good story telling for your underwater video.


#335980 GH3 Sample Video

Nice footage. Very promising setup.
Thank you Chris for sharing
Did you use the continuous autofocus in GH3? How did it behave? Was it helpful in all cases macro/wide?
I know that you used lights but did you use Manual white balance and/or red filter?

#324008 Bokeh???

Posted by thani on 07 January 2013 - 01:11 PM

Hi Okuma,

These shots were not planned in advanced for pokeh effect.The camer used was Sony FS700.
And lens used was Carl Zeiss 24/1.8 in auto iris, auto focus mode hence the housing has no manual controls for such functions.
This why it was left to the lens, the lighting and the composition.

This is the link:

#318501 Sony NEX-FS700 housing project

It felt just like we were seeing Jacques Mayol in The Big Blue, surfacing with the world record.

The "Okayyy" shout comes from the guy who made alot of effort into the manufacturing processes. Posted Image

The Ninja housing could be a fraction of the size/weight if it was machined out of a solid block of aluminium or delrin to fit the shape of the Ninja. Also, having a separate cable linked external monitor would allow better ergonomics and positioning for viewing at different angles (not to mention transportability).

Transportability: Is not an issue hence you can unscrew the monitor housing from the main housing.
Ergonomically: I agree that it might be difficult to use in certain setuations.
Size: Width-wise, you can not make it less wider hence it is a tight fit. And the HDMI out is on the side of the monitor, does not help a lot.

Guys remember that we do not have the tools to do it better.

Come on guys, give us a break. We are a bunch of hobbyists executing this challenging project.
Show some support plz Posted Image


#317839 Sony NEX-FS700 housing project

Here is the second major milestone in this project: Inventing a Ninja II housing.
I hope the attach photo is shown correctly as I am posting through iPad (iOS 6).

The Ninja II which uses HDMI is working beautifully with FS700.
