In Topic: GH4 - Nauticam Macro Lens/Port Thoughts

18 February 2015 - 08:20 AM


Have you tried assigning the electronic zoom to a function key and using the up and down arrows to zoom? I do this and land and it works great (I don't believe the GH2 has this - or at least I haven't found the option). I haven't tried this lens underwater, but thought about doing so using the camera to zoom and building custom gear to engage the manual focus.

I wondered if this was possible and now I see that it is. I bought the zoom gear but have not used it yet, so I can still return it.

Using the zoom gear does seem like it might be slightly more convenient .... Can someone who has used the zoom gear comment ?

30mm focal length at 4K is quite narrow

Thanks. It's kind of a strange size. I find it too wide for most of my top side use. I originally bought it to fly on a drone, but never got around to it.

Another quick question. I have the M.Zuiko 12mm lens. Has anyone used this underwater with the GH4 ? It looks like it will fit in the 4" FE port.  I realize its fixed FL and not as versatile as a zoom, but any reason I shouldn't give it a try ?

I'm very happy with it, but it's only for certain dives. I've been flipping the Subsee +10 in front of it a bit too. Thanks! What are you planning to put in those 2 flips? Just asking because I originally thought I needed that dual flip for +5 and +10 Subsee diopters but got the single Nauticam flip because it was quickly available here in Thailand. And now in reality I tend not to bother with the +5 and just use the +10 if I want a bit more magnification. With my Oly 12-50 I haven't been bothering with either diopter as some quick tests showed they didn't add much. Planning a more in-depth on that.

I was thinking a +10 to go with the +5, but probably would have been ok with a single like you mentioned.

I've got the zoom ring - expensive but I think worth it, as you can use the touch screen to zoom, but that won't work in the housing!

Thanks Richard
I thought that might be the case so I ordered the ring also.
