In Topic: Is anyone using the gx85/80 for stills?

14 November 2017 - 07:20 PM

I've started a project to retrofit one of the "small batch" triggers from this site but have yet to finish it. You are right that the housing and space above the camera is tight. You would have to remove the assembly to open the camera flash, which of course wouldn't be an issue as you wouldn't be using it. I'll try to do some measurements to give you an idea of what might fit. I've left mine on 1/125 for pics with strobes, which I only shoot about 5% of the time. I haven't had any motion blur that I could see, but obviously lose some flexibility on aperture and ISO.

In Topic: Anybody shooting with the Panasonic GX80/85/GX7II?

I did test the MWB on the GX85 on the 3 day. I was able to get a good MWB at a very dark 45fsw. That being said, the camera is not great in low light and both shots are a bit noisy. I will post these shots in the next couple of days.

In Topic: GH 5 Housings

26 September 2017 - 04:57 PM

I personally like the layout of the buttons on the Nauticam housings, specifically for the GH4 and GH5. The dedicated large back button focus, and re-routed WB and ISO buttons make for very intuitive operation. The GH2 and GX85 housings do not have these conveniences. I can't speak for the other housings.

In Topic: Attaching a filter to Panasonic 7-14

Thanks bob! I'm having issues viewing the photos in the thread, apparently I need to purchase some shit from photobucket to do it. You wouldn't happen to have the thread saved or have an upgraded account already would you?


It's an issue with the OP's account. Click on the "view original" link below each pic and you can see them.

H,m that's odd. Yeah from what I've read it's a whole process to get it to fit, I was just reading what was probably 2 whole pages of instructions on how it's done and went meh fuck it.
Anyone else had the same experience as trickster when it came to installing the filter holder?


I just changed out the filter folder the way trickster described. I remember seeing mention of needing an additional plastic spacer/shim - but I did not find that step necessary.
Here's that thread:
