Chris,

 

Since you're taking photo instead of video, try turn on "iZoom", you can zoom up to 150mm, the quality should be quite good.

 

I just receive my Aquako IV diopter which is stronger then the SMC. It's suffering from vignette issue just like the Subsee+10. I'm working on a solution to make that lens closer to the port, so if it works, I will share it here. Looking at the diopter flip holder, they could have put the circle behind the tab and hinge so the 67mm thread is closer to the front of the port. Don't know why they design the way it is now.

May be my +7 was wrong? I took so many pictures it could be hard to track. I will test it again within next 2 weeks. But Christ shouldn't get 8.5cm at 24mm unless he has the Subsee +10 on when he take that 24mm.

 

Also, Chris shot at 3:2 while I shot at 16:9, so my pictures should show a bit more width than Chris'.

It seems the x264 version is a bit sharper. Could it be because that the size is small and H.264, so Youtube didn't bother to re-encode it? And the iMovie is 20Mbps so Youtube re-encoded it? I read some where that the prefer bitrate if 8 Mbps for 1080p video.

 

I'm looking into Handbrake, you might want to give it a try as it's freeware and available for Mac as well. There is a feature for "Optimize for web" and seems like a lot people use that to encode for videos to be uploaded to Youtube.

I did the test without diopter at 75mm so I think that's why Chris didn't repeat it.

I didn't know the SMC is heavier than the camera? I heard that it's bulky, didn't know it's that bad!
