In Topic: Panasonic LUMIX GH5 for underwater video

Today, 12:17 AM

What a nice price!!. Can you share with us where you bought it?

 

I ordered it from CVP.com - http://cvp.com/index...asonic_gh5_body

 

Base price before tax is £1415.83, take off another £83.33 for the trade in (body only), another £10 with their '10off' coupon on first orders and it was around £15 delivery to Gibraltar, add to that on the day the euro was at 1.115 to £1.

Wow. 1 year later and still no real successor to the AX100. Sad! I think Sony have bypassed the semi pro camcorder market now and making us got with the Alpha and FS cameras.

I'm still happy with my GH4, but now have the GH5 (can't afford the housing just yet) and from some of the stuff I've seen posted (not all of it thou) they have really nailed the underwater MWB issues so look forward to getting it underwater later in the year.

I think (and I'm guilty of it too) that content is still king and it's not all about the latest camera, and I bet the footage from your current Canon would knock the spots of some of the crap I film :-)

Colors etc look great!

 

However I'm not sure if the GH5 fits within the 'small camera' category :)

 

What aren't you happy with, may I ask?


In Topic: Nauticam housing flood

That's a real worrying issue. Sorry to hear. :-(

I've had the pressure light (mine alarms only on the moisture sensor?) come on, due to a slight difference on tolerance between a zen dome and Nauticam housing. I managed to repeat the issue by moving/jarring the dome. No other domes/ports I have the same issue.

In your below-20 dives, with magic filters on, how does MWB behave in shallow waters (begining or ending the dive) ?
I guess you have the filter fixed on the lense


I remove the filters if my intended dive site is below 20m and use normal lights and get closer.

Which are mounted internally. So it's fixed decision before the dive.

My GH5 will be with me on Weds, (couldn't refuse at the moment with the Euro being strong against the £ and Panasonic UK doing a £100 trade in offer. I got the body for 1495€ delivered ) alas with that and the CYAN Leds. I'm spent. So the NA-GH5 will have to wait a couple of months.
