How to make a waterproof cable for a custom monitor housing?

02 September 2015 - 06:11 PM


I am planning to build in the future a custom monitor/recorder housing and I need help in making the cable connecting the monitor housing to the camera housing.
I need to be able to connect/disconnect the cable from the camera housing easily. I mean don't want the cable to be permanently attached & glued between the two housings. The cable could be an HDMI or BNC.

Any ideas?

How would an 8 inch dome perform with an 16mm FF equivalent fast lens?

31 January 2015 - 08:32 PM

Hi there,

I am planning to use the Zen 8 inch dome and I am worried about corner sharpness at the widest aperture of the lens. My setup will be consisting of a FF Canon 16-35mm 2.8 LII lens with an ultra speedbooster for Sony super 35mm sensor. The lens will be equivalent to 11.36mm FF with f2 aperture.

I will be shooting in ambient light (no video lights) and at the widest & fastest f2 aperture most of the time.

The closest I found was a good review by Ryan Canon for Zeiss Touit 12mm 2.8 behind a 7 inch dome. But that was still photography and I "think" is taking with flash at medium f-stops.

I would appreciate any help.
