In Topic: GH4 - Nauticam Macro Lens/Port Thoughts

Have you tried assigning the electronic zoom to a function key and using the up and down arrows to zoom? I do this and land and it works great (I don't believe the GH2 has this - or at least I haven't found the option). I haven't tried this lens underwater, but thought about doing so using the camera to zoom and building custom gear to engage the manual focus.

Honestly I just figured out zoom control working without touch screen. Thanks!

Ok, another lazy test.

Min size to fill the frame. GH4 + pz 14-42 at 42mm.
Please note, this is not magnification test and wet diopter will work completely different when underwater.

 

  • CMC 17mm at 4cm
  • SMC 24mm at 6cm
  • Aquako IV (2.5x) : 20mm at 5cm
  • Subsee +5 : 40mm at 10cm
  • Subsee +10 : 27mm at 6cm

 

btw, it was very interesting how you attache zoom gear on pz 14-42.

I haven't try this lens underwater yet but so far footage looks reasonably sharp and OIS working well.
I think it should be good for medium size shot in mid water with handheld (Thanks Peter).

Sorry to be so dumb, whats the differences between the SMC and the CMC?
 
From what I read the CMC is a higher magnification and better optically - if that is the case, whats the status of the SMC?


It's works better with compact and m43.

Ok, just lazy quick topside test. Min size to fill the frame.
GH4 + Oly 60mm.
 
Nauticam CMC : 8mm subject at 2.7cm
Nautcam SMC : 10mm subject at 2.8cm
Aquako IV (2.5x) : 8mm subject at 2.2cm
Subsee +5 : 11mm subject at 3.2cm
Subsee +10 : 9mm subject at 1.7cm
 
I guess CMC will be best choice for 60mm and personally I'll bring down CMC and Aquako IV with 60mm.
I'll try to do similar test with 14-42 when I have port.

Would love some comparisons with the Nauticam SMC, CMC and the Aquako +15.


Just got Nauticam CMC so hopefully I can try all three with 60mm and 14-42 soon. Water temp still damn cold here (3~5C) for macro shooting. :(
