In Topic: help deciding with Threaded Filter for UW photography

15 November 2017 - 03:52 AM

Hi Sorin

 

If you have a housing for your camera, which can take a filter on the outside (normally 67mm or 77mm) then this filter can be safely removed or attached while underwater. There is normal enough of gap (normally a cutout) for allowing water to pass between the filter and the front of the housing.

 

These same filters (although maybe in smaller diameters) can be used directly on your camera, while its inside the housing, then this becomes an issue as you cannot remove it while diving. You might consider an internally fitted filter, if you are using a dome with your using instead of the flat port.


In Topic: Is anyone using a MacBook for editing (not the pro, just the MacBook).

12 November 2017 - 03:05 AM

Hi Hank,

 

I've gone for the new 13" MacBookPro with the Touch Bar.

 

I had the 11" Air before and the 13" is only ever so slightly bigger, but its got a lovely P3 screen and all the performance of my work 2012 15"

 

The current 12" 'MacBook' with their CoreM CPU's aren't up to much in terms of Lightroom / FinalCutPro - so I don't think they are good enough for heavy use.

 

Plus the charger fro the Touch Bar 13" can be used as a normal USB charger - so saving taking something to charge your phone.


In Topic: Underwater Monitor for Panasonic GH5

I agree, for the price Nauticam charge for external HDMI cables, they need to be more than 'normal' HDMI cables with added bulkheads...

 

I had the cable on my NA-FLAME dead on arrival, thankfully Nauticam replaced it FoC for me, but I was quoted in excess of £320 for a replacement. Which is way way too much


In Topic: Keldan Video 8M CRI Modular Underwater Video Light

If you were interested in splitting, I might be tempted for the pair of 8000lm CRI heads (to replace my current 5000lm ones)


In Topic: WWL-1 questions

The WWL-1 stays in its buoyancy collar, and is stowed in the WWL-1 case that way; just take out the fitted insert.

 

I had not thought of removing the fitted insert for use with the buoyancy collar! Nice!

 

One comment from me in regards to the hard cap. I got a pack of GoPro knock off tethers

and stuck one on the front of the cap and fitted a spilt ring to that and then a double ender so can take on the dive and know when I had the camera to the boat guy the lens is protected.
