In Topic: GH4 - Nauticam Macro Lens/Port Thoughts

Yesterday, 10:38 PM

Saw the Shotgun housing at Reef Photos today. If you can imagine, having a Samsung 8.4" tablet at the back of the GH4 housing, that's how big it's going to be, except the Shogun housing is about 2.5" thick. The cheese plate tray is huge and thick. Don't think I will ever get to that point of using the Shogun. Still trying to figure how to pack the GH4 housing and tripod set up for international travel, those darn airline that weight your carry on bag!


Hand carry your housing with port. They don't weigh camera.
Sometime I even carry with tripod attached.

Yup, sometime I add 1 or 2 Jumbo stix floats depends on the light configuration (2 x sola 5k + 2 x Fix 7k).




I saw a photo of your rig with Stix floats on the arms. Have you dumped them now? And do you use just the 2 carbon float arms for both macro with tripod and for wide angle?



I'm just thinking for recording underwater audio. Often that audio gets thrown away but sometimes it's useful. Seems worth doing if possible as the Shogun features high quality audio recording.



Interesting. I would have thought the buoyancy of that dome would pull the front up anyway. I now have the equivalent Nauticam dome but not got my rig underwater yet.

I only using Ø60x200mm carbon fibre float arm (Buoyancy 240g) x 1ea on R/L arm for all setup (Macro/WA) now.

It's heavy but it's work for me.



Those who are using the Nauticam GH4 housing, how much flotation are you using (and with what ports/lights/tripod/monitor)?

Interesting stuff, compared to the 16-35 II how do you compare it with regards to corner sharpness?


I find better corner with 16-35 f/4 then f/2.8L II but maybe it's negligible behind the dome.
