For our british readers, Dive Master Insurance in England has a insurance who is 10% of the insured value, but only for british residents!

 

 

This hurts so much for me also, I would be happy to pay for the insurance too!! :(

Sorry to pollute the topic.

Keldan can start to worry at 750Euro/piece.

Can you get spare battery, how much they cost?

 

PM'd you

At first, like everyone (I think) I saw the specs, the price and thought..whoa! Makes my recent GH5s purchase very expensive (but I still got it for a super low price, so can't complain...)

 

But here and on other forums I visit, people are starting to see the drawbacks of the battery, recording formats and the additional accessories you need to get it up and running.

 

Underwater, we have the issues of:
1. Battery life (only real option is USB based pack inside housing, like the A7 but means bigger housing)
2. Screen position
3. Control access
4. Heat (so might need fans, then an increase in housing size to cope with additional hardware and NPF battery)

 

As to whether or not it will get ProResRAW, that will be complicated issue, as its a licensing issue, only DJI and Atomos (I believe) have acquired ProResRAW licensing for their devices at the moment. So if they managed to get it on there, it will probably be a V-LOG-L type activation, or back to base upgrade as the licensing is per device.

 

Looking into the future, I can say that my 'next' camera (whenever that will be) will have to have ProResRAW, to make me wanna upgrade, it looks an amazing advancement in the < $5000 category.

I have:

Between the handles
2x Nauticam 90x170mm

Then from each handle
2x 90x220mm floats (so 4 of these)
Reason. Lights are 2.4kg negative!

On the WWL-1 I have the buoyancy collar also.

It’s a little positive now, waiting to get it dialled in with tyre weights (come in 5G blocks) but double Enders are a good quick easy way to get your housing balance while underwater.

Rather have it positive and add to it than negative.
