In Topic: RX100 ii vs. RX100 iV / V

31 August 2016 - 02:22 AM

I dont want to open a new topic just for a question so hopefully someone will see this and reply.

What is the native ISO on the Mk4?


200 is the lowest native setting, however extending it to 80/100 brings native-like real advantage (=linear behavior) in noise and dynamic range.


We will do lembeh as well!

Is 4K worth the money? To go for mk4/5?
Or is the mk2 still very good with its HD?!


mk5 is not out yet, I am wondering if it is coming this year after the Kumamoto earthquake. To bring a real punch, they have to sort out the overheating issue (quite "burning", I had problems in the red sea this february, even in the all-metal nauticam case) and show some performance achievement. Former is easy, read a mod on dpreview that (voiding your warranty) you can DIY (I'll definitely do it before the "shooting season" around christmas). Latter is tricky, the RX100iv has a state-of-art sensor with full readout, I don't expect any meaningful upgrade in <2 years.

Nauticam's WWL-1 is your best bet for WA, just search around wetpixel (I don't have one yet but its on the list). For Macro you have multiple options, I personally use a ucl-165.

I'd say 3000+LM with decent LED color should do the job. Still weaker than a single s2000 though.

For macro night/deep 1800lm is fine. not perfect, but does the job, you can even add a warm diffuser if you are close enough to the subject.

In Topic: Seychelles outer islands (Amirantes, Aldabra, Farquhar, Alphonse)

True, I read the story somewhere, that a yacht near Aldabra was hijacked, that's why I asked islands further from the African mainland and Madagascar. Aldabra is just ~200miles from Madagascar while the the Amirantes group is around 500miles from Madagascar and 700 from the Mainland, that's a bit of a difference...
