#370164 New Nauticam 29 port for Panasonic 14-42mm PZ could be a blast for 4K video s...

Those are the 14-42mm tests with the Inon 6,10 and 12 stacked
Panasonic Lumix G X Vario 14-42mm / F3.5 – 5.6 / Power OIS and Nauticam Macro Port 35 | Interceptor121 Underwater Photo & Video Blog

The tests were with the power zoom and I then ran them with the mega OIS without major differences. The single Inon covers 42mm width, you need the 10 to go below the 36mm and so on


#369885 High CRI video lights for macro work

I have no idea but if you buy 2000-4000 lumens dim them or you will have fried fish


#369391 Wide/fisheye lens and housing for the RX100 mk IV?

Posted by Interceptor121 on 17 January 2016 - 09:09 AM

my comments were for video. You can't really use a dome as the RX100 don't white balance and you need a push on filter

 

For stills you can try. Split shots are difficult with a compact and a small dome plus you need to seal the wet lens

Generally worse as the 12-50mm sits further away from the glass and optical quality is worse than the 14-42mm Panasonic. The pana lens has a focus ring so it would need a knob. Having said that the autofocus works pretty well and you can always focus lock on something and then move the camera.

There is a part 83215 that allows the bayonet system on the macro port m77 36131. Vignetting varies the wet lens is optimised for use at 28mm equivalent


#368649 Nauticam NA-RX100IV flooding

Posted by Interceptor121 on 27 December 2015 - 05:15 AM

You don't need to go down to 20 meters or take the housing for a dive empty that is just a legend. If there is a leak you can find out after half hour in a bucket I would not waste a dive like that

 

The benefit of vacuum systems is that they make all those procedures obsolete. The RX100 costs nearly $1,000 it is not the camera I would take in a cheap housing. The Nauticam housing is $995 I can't see how you would not spend money for the vacuum valve

If you don't want to spend $220 for the M14 OEM valve you can get the valve only from a third party for another $100 you have a vacuum system that is the best insurance for your rig and will eliminate a number of issues including changing batteries on a small boat

The CMC is pretty hard to use. Practice manual focus would be my advice

Looking at your rig you need another strobe and should put the light on top of the camera for macro. If you want to use strobes and lights on the arm you need a triple clamp

There are few places where you can actually find good subject for both. For video is much easier than for still images to change wide to macro

Inside the housing magic filter auto outside you can only use the mangrove for the Inon UWL-H100

i guess you may want to post this in the consumer / compact session as the RX100 is not mirrorless

 

Either way the RX100 Mark IV has a relatively short zoom so to achieve macro you need fairly strong diopters such as the Nauticam CMC or a Subsee 10 or Inon UCL100

For wide angle the Inon lens you mention is not compatible you can go the Nauticam route I guess with the WWL-1

 

For video however the RX100 fails to white balance so you will need a further lens you can use with a push on filter or a filter inside the housing for the WWL-1

#367801 Anyone Tried Nauticam's Shutter Release Extension?

Posted by Interceptor121 on 02 December 2015 - 07:11 AM

There were some brackets that are specific to the housing. I got rid of the LX100 so i don't remember exactly


#367784 Anyone Tried Nauticam's Shutter Release Extension?

Posted by Interceptor121 on 01 December 2015 - 11:18 PM

I have used the shutter release for the LX100 and found it very effective to use. if you have a nauticam tray already I would recommend the release even if it makes the whole rig even more complex to put together when travelling


#367333 Olympus 7-14 mm f2.8 will not fit in Nauticam housings

Posted by Interceptor121 on 21 November 2015 - 01:06 AM

According Nauticam chart, the 6" dome port only fit for Panny 7-14mm. I check the dimension of Panny 7-14mm is 2.76 x 3.27" almost similar (slightly larger) than Olympus 8mm fisheye (2.44 x 3.15").
has anybody tried this configuration? 

It vignettes so not working

The WWL-1 is not rectilinear so the comparison with the 7-14mm is unfair the corners are better thought with the WWL-1. Compared to the 8mm the WWL has less field of view and is near to rectilinear in the centre. For wam could be a good option for larger subjects on a reef. Will do some corner comparisons of you wish but the WWL-1 effectively preserves the same lens performance in water. To that note the normal 14-42 kit lens is better than the lower zoom in the corners
