It is different. Mine is a GP32a.
I wanted by this weekend. I guess that won't happen. Lol. That was really the only reason I wanted to change cameras because I need macro capabilities on the fly

l.babcock,
 
Sorry - forgot about which port. I have the adapter for the flat port. Not sure they make one for the WA. If they do, let me know!

They said I have to to send the port in to have a custom bracket made. Did they have yours in stock? I would have thought the gates ports are all the same

That's Awesome Tom. I guess it would work on my wide angle port. Thanks

I still haven't purchased  camera yet. I have a trip to Truk Lagoon and Philippines  in May, I would like to purchase something by then. Has anything new come out that i need to look at? I would like great video and stills and the ability to take macros  in video and still mode.

 

Thanks for all your help. a hard decision to make

I believe that the best bang for the buck and the less complicated camera is still the Canon G16 or S120 as she does reasonable small macro to moderate wide angle without any additional lenses.
She has a broad choice of housings and acessories like macro and wide angle lenses and work perfectly with INON strobes using INON's s-TTL system.
A option to create a super small rig would be the S120 8same sensor and processor, but slightly different lens) with 2 INON of the tiny S2000 strobes.
 
If you "need" 4K video then the choice become less broad:
Sony RX100
Panasonic LX100
Panasonic GH4
 
Keep in mind that photo cameras are quite different to use as video cameras, especially the autofocus don't work well under water on photo cameras.

Thanks Chris
Could you set the focus to lock position where everything is in focus on the small camera's when taking video, so it won't keep trying to focus on different subjects? I have never used a small camera I probably will be using it as a video camera 90% of the time.
