Yeah, the fisheye image on Yi just ruin it. As for 3 propellers, I'm sure by not need to power one more motor (to make it a quad), they can extend the battery life longer.

Guys, there is advantage of shooting at 60 fps (or 48 fps)! I have studied a lot of UW videos done by popular videographers, They incorporated a lot of slow motions, not only to create that "graceful" manta/shark glide by scene, but it's also to create the "stabilized" footage feel. If you shoot high fps and slow it down by 1/3 or 1/2, chances is you don't need to use Warp Stabilizer. If you force a 24 fps/30fps to slow down, you're introducing duplicated in between frames, which I think there is some not so desire effects.

There are allready rumors about a possible price reduction of 400 USD in april so pre-orders might no be the best solution.


There will only be limited quantities in march/april. Wait for the camera to be available in numbers in may. ;-)


The camera price always go down within a year after release. I bought my GH4 for around US$1100, about 8 months after it's release. Of course I had to buy it from ebay in Canada.


I've already gave my deposit money to CVP! Looks stunning so far.


AutoISO now works in Full Manual Movie mode, and you have the ability to set the lower and higher limits to this, so enabling you to set Aperture and Shutter and let the camera keep exposure using ISO - this is a massive improvement...!



Richard, you haven't wait for the housing price and already pre-order?


Also, don't forget, now you can pull focus, all in the camera!!!!

My wish list:

6. AutoISO in Full Manual Movie Mode
7. Aperture / Shutter values shown if using A/S modes (currently does not)

Richard, Auto ISO feature is available even in manual shooting mode, Panasonic DO listen to their end users!!!!


Watch the whole video, and it makes the $2K price tag justifiable for all the features it has!

Thanks kkfok, I'm going to Socorro next May, I think you shot video there and was using the LX100, right? Any tips about shooting in those area? (sea condition, wind etc). I will be on board of Solmar V liveaboard.
