Any Panasonic Lumix 7-14 Users?

27 September 2011 - 07:24 AM

Hello All,

I am using an AG-AF100 and new to underwater video. Given
the fact that I have to use Lumix lenses to take advantage of
the automatic focus, zoom and iris, I am thinking about the
Panasonic Lumix 7-14 lens. In going over other posts, it seems
that a 7-14 is the most recommended for underwater shooting.

Any thoughts on this subject and/or stories from Lumix 7-14 users?

Thank you,
Kris

Available Housings for Panasonic AG AF100?

26 September 2011 - 06:24 AM

Does anyone have a recommendation for a housing manufacturer
for the Panasonic AG AF100, with electronic controls?

The only one I can find is the Equinox HD10, which has fully manual controls.

Thank you,
Kris

Sony NEX-FS100 VS. Panasonic AG-AF100

10 August 2011 - 07:56 AM

Hello All,

I presently own a HVX-200 and wanted to advance my underwater shot quality
with either a Sony NEX-FS100 or a Panasonic AG-AF100.

An available housing is not really an issue as I'm going to have it custom built
for whichever my choice is.

I am mainly hoping that some users out there have used both cameras and can comment
on their usability for underwater shooting. Specifically I'm wondering about:
1. Accessibility and adaptability of the remote functions for camera operations. (For example, the AG-AF100 is restricted to Panasonic lenses for the remote zoom and focus to be used)
2. Battery life. I know Sony is better, but I would like to hear cases for both..
3. Whether or not these are even good camera choices given the limitations (although beautiful results) presented by prime lenses
4. Over-all ease of use given that they're going to be packed away in a housing.

Thank you to everyone in advance.
