In Topic: XA10 autofocus underwater - which one?

28 December 2012 - 09:25 AM

There are 2 systems for the autofocus on the XA 10. One is TTL and the other (situated just under the lens) is IR. They work together, but if the IR is not working (depending on environnement conditions) the camera rely on the TTL only.
So you can forget the IR as you are underwater. I have a HFG10 in a L&M housing and I never care about which one (TTL or IR) is working as it is only the TTL which works UW.
Then you can forget the different mode and use only the Instant AF.
You will be able to use your flip red filter with no problems as the IR autofocus isn't working underwater.
These are the settings I use and it is all right.

Hi, anyone has the results of this 2011 Contest. The web site is not update, and I tried several times to contact with the organizers with no results ????


After long search on internet including French Federation for diving, i phone directly to the organisation. I've got someone who apologize for the lack of informations. As he was on a trip during our phone conversation, i did not push hard against him. Very kindly, he ask me to send a mail to the following E-mail festi.film@wanadoo.fr . He promise he would answer when he will be back inToulon, ie 4 or 5 days.
