Hyperfocal distance for Lumix LX100?

05 April 2015 - 07:14 AM

Hi there!

Does somebody knows how to calculate the hyperfocal distance for the Lumix LX100 lens?

The lens is a Leica DC Vario Sumilux f/1.7-2.8 10.9-34mm (24-75mm) and has a multi-aspect four thirds sensor.


The autofocus is generally good and on works fine on land, but video autofocus under water works bad and using the right hyperfocal distance would help greatly.

i am just "flashed" about this amazing story about a Leopard Seal adopting Photographer Paul Nicklen.


I hope you enjoy it!


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.





Video and Photographing with a rebreather

12 May 2014 - 05:47 AM



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!
