macro to tele lens for Panasonic GH4?

24 October 2014 - 08:29 AM

Does anybody knows if exist a M4/3 lens doing wide angle to moderate zoom and have a macro function switchable under water?
basicall the same as a videocamera does but less zoom as we don't need it under water.

I already got suggested

- Panasonic G X Vario 12-42
- Olympus 12-50

 

This lens would go on a Panasonic GH4 mainly used for video work.

 

Thanks

Video and Photographing with a rebreather

12 May 2014 - 05:47 AM

Hi!

 

After several Try Rebreather Diving Experiences i liked very much i pulled the trigger,
bought a Poseidon SE7EN and will start my rebreather basic and advanced certification course end of this month.

As it is mandatory - and i belive that this makes sense - to carry a stage with bail-out gas for dives deeper than 18 Meters i ordered a 7 liter alu stage for that.
I am asking myself ho much a side-mount style carried stage will influence my buoyancy and especially the ability to shoot macro as the stage under my arm will be lower than my body and probably touch/hit the ground what i want to avoid.

I will not use the camera during my course and not even for the first dives untill my buoyancy is perfect as while diving in open circuit, but i would like to start the course with some ideas how to place the stage cylinder.

 

Does somebody here dive and photograph with a rebreather and a stage and can share his experiences regarding his set up and experiences with other set up's.

 

Thanks so much!

Chris
