In Topic: Going from DX - 4/3s - FX - Compact, My Digital De-Evolution

Its funny you mention this. Even thou I've got a real nice m43 system - this past week, I could of killed for a small compact to take with me, as the conditions didn't warrant getting the whole system wet - but a small camera just to take some momento photos would of got some use.

 

I'm looking at the S120 or similar as a 'every dive' camera.

 

 


In Topic: Nauticam Shogun Housing is here

I'm really hoping the guys with these Shoguns can setup a static scene and do a side by side recording (underwater)

a) Direct to SD Card (so using the 100MB/s)
b) ProRes off the Shogun

 

Maybe even say, set it to AWB (so its off) and then we can see the power of 10bit 422 and getting the colours out of it.

 

I'm sorely tempted. But would love some sample footage to play with first.

 

Also agreed - all this land based footage is pretty useless, underwater we are dealing with such a reduced palette of colours - I think any refinements in color recording will help.

I've also got the 48 can version from AO. They are truly excellent.

 

Tempted to get another (perhaps the 28 can version) for when I just take the camera and one strobe.

Yeah - no mention of uncompressed HDMI output...

Good choice! :)

 

Remember the camera and housing will always be an upgrade target, but the accessories and ancillary parts will stick around with you for a while - so best to buy the best you can at the beginning.
