Before housing the Sony FS7, help me

Today, 01:36 PM

I would like to know if anybody tried the Sony FS7 underwater. The only footage I could find is a swimming pool clip done by Sealux. I have bought their housings before and I was happy with the build quality of German engineering. I wish they would try the camera in real environment like other manufacturers do :).

I am concerned of the following:
> Does the camera perform good white balance underwater?,
> Does it execute good color rendition unlike the FS100 & FS700 that exhibited color science issues as I recall? I think this camera is an XDCAM similar to the EX1& 3 family.
> Low light performance.

What attracts me to this camera is the following:
+ Metabones speed booster which produces almost FF equivalent enabling better wide angle usage,
+ Good dynamic range,
+ 10 bit 422 makes the footage tolerance for color correction.
+ Availability of both S-log, standard & hyper gammas as options,
+ Slo-motion

I would like to hear from you guys on what you think of this camera even if you haven't tried it.

Thank you in advance :)

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.
