In Topic: When is the Nauticam NA-GH3 coming?

06 August 2013 - 10:21 PM

I have also been using my new Nauticam GH3 housing for a week of diving with the GH3 and Panasonic LUMIX G X Vario 12-35mm F2.8 lense in the Nauticam 6' Wide Angle Port.

I am very happy with the housing. I really recommend this setup.

 

Hey Starfish - I am very interested in your input on this setup.

 

I have been waiting for the right time to buy a new camera for both topside/general travel use and underwater photo/video, and have been very tempted by this setup.  How do you feel this lens works for underwater work?  The Panny 12-35 seems like the optimal "first lens" for topside/travel, but I've been wondering how suitable it is for underwater.  It sounds like you're quite satisfied - do you have any photos/video you can post?  I'd welcome any additional feedback you have about this gear.

 

Thanks!

I emailed Nauticam several weeks ago asking if they could tell me anything about their plans for a housing for the GH3.  Got this reply over the weekend - short on details, but good to now they *will* make a housing and, if their estimates are to be believed, it may not be a very long wait before they start to become available.

 

Their reply:

Thank you for the enquiries and interest in our product and kindly feedback.

 
I am glad to tell you that we will go for support this model for sure, however it will take around 1 month to start the shipment of NA-GH3. Please keep tune with our website www.nauticam.com for the most updated inforamtion.

 

That's what I got.

 

I guess I can go ahead and buy that new camera now, eh?  (gulp....)

The Panasonic GH3 now seems to be shipping in quantity (finally!). I have not ordered one - yet - but I'm very tempted.

Before I do, I'd like to get some idea if there will be a housing for it. Nauticam has not responded to my email inquiries asking about their plans (if any).

Has anyone heard anything about a housing for this camera?
