In Topic: GoPro housing for deeper depths

08 February 2012 - 11:34 AM

I've been using a custom housing made by this frenchie, however it had no buttons so you had to start recording and close the housing (this was problematic).

I just received the Golem one, more info on them here Rebreather World post. Jury is still on the vignetting at 1080p and wide.



Let's see:

- Cheap

- Tiny package

- Huge depths

- Good low light performance

- Fairly wide angle

I think it's an amazing package even with a tiny bit of vignetting. I'm excited about it. I suspect my D7000 and aquatica is going to be spending a lot more time out of the water.

There are a couple of easy ways to cure the vignetting - either stay shallow and use the backscatter housing, or blow 10 times the money on a huge camera and housing.

In Topic: Depth rating of a Z240?

I have had them below 400 feet - no problems at all.

Didn't expect to see you here Mike... but there's no one more qualified to speak, so thanks for the info. That's very reassuring.

Regards,

In Topic: Newbie Must Read: What new system did you just buy?

Hi all,

I know a few members. After years of struggling with cheaper gear, I went nuts:


- Nikon D 7000
- Aquatica housing wtih 6" dome
- Tokina 10-17 (new purchase)
- Sigma 10-20 (already lying around)
- Nikon 18-55 VR (ditto)
- Inon Z240 strobes
- Salvo 20W HID's (lying around for ages) for video

Everyone's posts really helped - led to getting extension ring and gear for the 18-55, and to buying the 10-17 Tokina (Ken and Scott, your comments helped there).

Now for some pics...
