In Topic: Looking for recommendations for video tuition

If you want to get into UW film making especially doing documentary as a career, it would take more than that. I would think you need some sort of Marine Biologist background, etc. The well known ScubaZoo in Borneo require that kind of background to even be an intern.


Regardless, you should start by getting this DVD and understand the career path:




I have a friend who just turn 20. He wants to be a UW film maker, now attending film school, then decide to become a pilot because independent film maker doesn't make much money and cost a lot when come to equipment. He think flying as a pilot at least give him a chance to go diving at different location. Go figure.

In Topic: Thoughts on external vs Internal filter ?

Skip the red filter unless you're shooting video. Get use to custom white balance first (if shoot without strobe). If you're happy with the custom white balance, and grow into strobe. Red filter is more beneficial for video shooter.

Zebra pattern feature, which I don't think Canon (G7x) has :


Panasonic has the best remote camera control feature:


A true time lapse feature that takes up to 9999 picture and create a video for you:


4K Frame capture:


Focus peaking:


It's really a capable video and photo device. Still waiting and see what make it different from the GH4.


If Nauticam have to have a tall housing like Olympus just to house the hot shoes flash, I think it's acceptable:

More close up pictures of the LX-100:




The hot shoe flash is really thick, and the lens barrel is quite long. Really tempted to pre-order it since I need a UW camera 1st week of December for a small dive trip to Florida, but I think the chance of Nauticam has a housing at the end of November would be nill.

Well, if Nauticam is smart enough, they should already have a solution just require minor tweaking, and they can sell more product!




I have been shooting in manual instead of TTL, so not having TTL is not really an issue for me. Finger cross, hopefully LX100 housing is being plan asap.
