Thanks Adam, I had not seen that yet.

Since the D500 has no built in flash, what LED trigger system fits this housing?

 

I've not received my D500 yet but will probably get a housing for it as soon as I sell off my other housing.

In Topic: The ultimate GH4 video rig! What is it...?

Is the Sony a7S ii not a viable choice as well? The battery life stinks and the AF is nothing to write home about but the footage is good. However, you'd still need an external recorder and housing for 4:2:2. Of course, I may have answered my own questions...

 

I have the Nauticam housing for my GH4 but with a 501 as an external monitor. 


In Topic: DPV/Scooter camera mount

13 July 2015 - 04:58 AM

I use the mount made by Logic Dive Gear. It is a swiveling, quick release system and can be had in both a large and small version. I have the large version and it works quite well with a GH4 or 5Diii system including a monitor and a pair of Keldan lights. It is capable of taking a larger system as well. The only bad thing I can say about it is that the large swivel mount is cut for the Genesis scooter body diameter or larger. If mounting to a SUEX scooter, you will need to perform a simple modification to make it compatible with the SUEX's slightly smaller body diameter. Not sure if Jon has updated the design yet to account for the SUEX body diameter. I had tried a DIY solution originally but as my system got bulkier, I needed something 'better' but lacked access to  the machinery to build a proper mount myself. 

 

Jon's scooters are also excellent machines and he offers some modifications that would make them even better if you did a lot of shooting from the scooter, such as left handed control and a dual handle option for driving a bigger rig around. The thumb actuated, infinitely variable speed control on the Genesis scooters makes on the fly speed changes very easy and without disturbance to an ongoing shot.
