Move over Sony RX100 (I, II, III), Here come Panasonic LX-100

15 September 2014 - 07:11 AM

For those who have been in the bandwagon of Canon and Sony Point and Shoot, this is worth a look and switch

 

Let's hope Nauticam has its housing by Xmas:

Now I'm interested to see if there is any good fish photobomb out there since I'm tired of kitten and dogs :D

Panasonic 14-42mm behind Inon UFL-165AD, anyone tried it?

24 June 2014 - 08:21 AM

Hi all,

 

I'm still doing some research about possible GH4 rig (also waiting for announcement of Panasonic LX8). I will be mostly doing video so I think the Lumix G X Vario PZ 14-42mm using the Nauticam Macro Port 35 would be the way to go. I read that the Panasonic 14-42mm has 37mm thread, which mean it's tiny! The Nauticam Macro Port 35 is 67mm threaded.

 

Anyway, I still have my Inon UFL-165AD port, I'm holding on to it because it's the best WA wet lens back in the day. I have a 67mm to AD adapter. So my question is, has anyone tried this set up? I know the Panasonic lens will have to zoom to 18mm (36mm equivalent), would there be vignette?

Almost pull the plug on GH4, now come the LX-8, 4K!!

10 June 2014 - 12:16 PM

It's still a rumor and we will find out on July 13, the Panasonic LX-8 could have 4K video! I'm a big fan of the LX-7 and let's hope the LX-8 has built in ND filter. I can imagine saving quite a bit of money for lens and can do macro and WA in the same dive. The GH4 would set me back about $5K for the complete set up with 12-50mm lens and port. The LX-8 could be a $2K set up. So exciting!

 

The question is, does a 1" sensor and a M43 sensor makes big difference?


3D printing gear for Olympus 12-50mm lens, need input

15 May 2014 - 05:12 PM

Hi all, I searched around to look for supply/seller of gear that goes on the Olympus 12-50mm lens that fit into the Nauticam Macro Port 65 (the port that's use for 60mm macro lens)

 

The sellers I found are outside of US, price range from $60 pound to $150. During my search, I also found this:

I manage to find a local company that can print the gear for me for $15. They actually charge by the hour so 3 files would take about 3 hours to print. However, the resolution will be 0.5mm. I'm wondering if anyone have gone this route. I requested to get a new quote for 0.1mm. If you have gone this route, which print resolution you used and if you have ran into any issue?

 

Thanks!
