In Topic: GH4 with 14-42mm lens or LX100?

The scaling calculation he does is wrong there is no scaling the camera is 11 mega to start. Generally I find cameralabs reviews from useless to misleading so won't loose my sleep over what he says. Will wait until there is a housing before making further comments but this is a device that will cost much less than the GH4 with all bits in so should not expect anything too exotic. The comparison of the clips I have seen shows similar results will need to wait for something more serious like eoshd to have a view

Looks like the Video feature of the LX100 has been compromised:




So I got myself the GH4!!!!!!

Cameralabs reviews are dangerous

You can work out yourself that because the sensor is 11Mp at 16:9 when it goes to 4K or 8M it only has 0.85x crop on both axis which means 1.08x zoom

24x1.08=25.92 about 26mm

So where is the scaling exactly?

In Topic: Inon AD + adapter vs. M67 wide-angle lens

UWL-H100 is slightly wider and more compatible with cameras with a large front lens. Sometimes even works with 24mm cameras. For the RX100 both lenses work very well i use the 28AD with dome for stills and the 28LD for video. I don't use the m67 mount for wide it makes it impossible to remove the lens in water

The LX100 won't be the solution. The lens is only 75mm equivalent and the depth of field not improved. You will get pretty close out of the box but things will look tiny in the frame


Possibly the canon 1" sensor camera will offer an improvement with a 100mm lens however rumour has it that the chip is the same as RX100 so won't be much better either


Is a bit of a compromise issue sensor size/aperture/depth of field. The best supermacro still comes from 1/1/.7" sensor cameras like the Powershot S or G series it is just the physics

If you are referring to my blog consider I have evaluated those adapters on a Nauticam housing. The Meikon port may be different so not necessarily the same conclusions apply
