In Topic: GH4 - Nauticam Macro Lens/Port Thoughts

Yesterday, 01:23 AM

Having seen a Shogun prototype at Photo Fair in Bangkok, and the pictures of the prototype Nauticam housing on the net, I sent this list of suggestions to Nauticam:

 

 

Nick, did Nauticam get back to you in regards to your questions?

 

I think Peter is definitely correct in getting the shogun mounted at the rear of the camera, even my Ninja gives me pitch issues if mounted on top.

When do we get to see/hear your next video Peter?

 

BTW - Your Palau video has sold me on going next November! :)


In Topic: Atomos Shogun and 4K 4:2:2 10bit - Maybe / Maybe Not

16 December 2014 - 06:14 AM

What an amazing piece of hardware, gee makes the Ninja2 look very basic! I'm sold!

Lots of screen presses mind, will have to see how Nauticam have solved these..

 

Not trying to spread BS - I just thought it was odd, that a direct competitor of Atomos would state that due to using 1.4b HDMI (which is what the Shogun uses) even their own product won't be able to support 4:2:2 10 Bit 4K/UHD via HDMI...

 

Thanks for the update Peter!

 

Perhaps admins, should remove this whole thread.

I think with anything Nauticam related, its always well/over engineered!

 

I get a feeling mine will be a lot simpler!

 

The basic mechanics of it will be (I'm guessing!) is that the trigger is hinged at the very front (or the arch of movement is the greatest), at the back of this will be a flat area, which as you pull the trigger will go UP and engage a flat area on back part (with the bar to the housing trigger). As this back part is hinged in the middle, it will cause the rear of the back part to go DOWN.

 

Getting the angles / force right, I think is were the Nauticam engineers are craftsmen, and I'm not...

 

I think I've worked it out... sort of...I was wrong above....

 

the rear hinge for the downward part, isn't the rear pivot at all (on my drawing) - its the bottom screw on the back of the unit. (2nd photo from DiveMasterDewey) that is, its a L shape movement. That is why there is a cut away from the side of the trigger, you pull it, and the right hand side back goes up, which then pushes on the opposite pivot causing a 90degree transfer...causing the back bar to swing on the bottom nut/axis to the left.
