In Topic: Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera: Yes there will be housings!

16 August 2013 - 09:29 AM

I just spotted that the Nauticam housing for the BM pocket camera is on the Nauticam Australia website as coming soon. Here's the link:

So now I am wondering about a WA lens again. Does anyone know how to figure out what the 8mm FE would look like on a Pocket Camera? Can you just use the same crop factor as for a rectilinear lens with a fisheye?

Exciting!

In the spirit of the only dumb question is the one you don't ask. . .

 

The Blackmagic site says that we can Canon or Nikon lenses on their system with a readily available adapter.  That sounds great as these lenses are good quality and have the distinct advantage of being already paid for.  What is the disadvantages?  Lack of ports for UW use?  

 

The adapters are definitely available.  At NAB, they had an enormous Fujinon Cinema Prime mounted on the BMPC camera.  The lens was literally 30 times the size/weight of the camera.

The downside to most of these adapters is that they often do not have connections to allow use of some lens functions like AF or IS. So, the lens becomes a fully manual lens.  I am new to DSLR housings, but I suspect that manual focus underwater is more difficult and time/air consuming than AF.

I am hacking a GoPro mount using loc-line.  When I have it done, I'll post photos.

Do you think you could go directly from the loc-line base to the GoPro tripod mount to adapt the GoPro to loc-line?

This could be a real game changer.  Glad to see housings are in development for it.
