Panasonic GX1 and Nauticam Housing

12 January 2018 - 05:05 AM

Remember the days when micro four thirds cameras were actually small?

 

It's time for an upgrade for me and I'm selling my Panasonic GX1 and Nauticam housing.  It's a great little package that would be ideal for someone looking starting out in underwater photography but is on a budget. Especially if you are looking to put together a travel friendly setup. I have done 100-150 dives with this camera and it's never given me any problems.

 

It's listed on ebay with a starting price of £175:

The camera has delivered some great images that I'm very happy with, please check out the underwater pics on my instagram if you're interested:

Is anyone using the gx85/80 for stills?

Hi All

 

My Panasonic/Nauticam GX1 setup has served me well but is due an upgrade. I'm looking at the GX85 and liking the look of it's compact form. The only significant downside I can see is the slow flash sync speed. Is anyone using this camera primarily for stills and finding the sync speed a problem? I think if you used a flash trigger rather than the inbuilt flash then you should be able to bump speed up a notch (probably 1/250th) but that nauticam housing is really small, not sure it would fit. Has anyone tried this?

 

Cheers

Joe
