GH4 stills

24 October 2014 - 11:41 PM

Photos taken on snorkel in Western Australia all in max 2 meters of water in the Swan river/estuary here.

GH4 in Nauticam housing, with the 8mm FE in Nauticam 3.5" dome and the Olympus macro 60mm in Nauticam macro port 65.

I heard the 8mm in 3.5" mini dome would vignet slightly, but it does not.

One handle removed from housing and Single INON S2000.

Some minor PS tweaks/sharpening, slight crop on a few of the photos.


Nauticam housing is very good to use, both lenses are great as well.

I am finding quite some pink/green artefacts in my photos, also in low ISO, especially in smooth gradients of backgrounds.

Not sure if the GH4 has difficulty with that or if I might have to tweak some of my settings. This was something I did not notice that much in my old RX100 photos.

For the rest the GH4 in Nauticam is awesome to use.

Macro: I think the RX100 might often be sharper when you see 100% detail, but a lot less versatile than GH4 with dedicated macro lens.
