In Topic: Best backpaak or hard case suggestions

24 September 2017 - 11:55 PM

I went for a ThinkTankPhoto Airport Security v2 (I think there is now a v3) roller - takes everything and still fits in the luggage guides they sometime make you use. 

 

The bag is big, but the main thing for me, is the depth, it can take domes standing up, so you can get a lot more in.

 

However due to the recently security 'improvements' around the world at airports, I would recommend you stick with a Peli type case, so if it does end up in the hold, you know its gonna be safe. I know if I was buying today, I would get a hard case.

From where can one purchase this filter holder?
 
Thanks, Wolfgang


Depending on which country you are in. The part is easily obtained from the nearest Panasonic Repair Center. The DPReview forum above mentions the part number required, of if like me you have the 8mm lens - I just swapped them over.

Obtaining the filter holder is quite easy. As to fitting its (from memory) just 3 screws to remove the current back plate and fit the 8mm filter holder. Many mention about filing off this and that to get it to fit, but mine just screwed straight on

In Topic: Color Correction of Panasonic GH5 Underwater Footage

16 September 2017 - 05:04 AM

I'm really impressed that most of the shots was with AutoWB and they corrected all okay! Makes using MWB a bit of a non issue - one less thing to fiddle with.

And oh boy are you shark shots tack sharp! (How were you running the camera? Do you know the aperture?) super impressed!!

The biggest thing I found wasn't 10Bit or 8bit or even the 60/30. But the compression. Using the atomos recorders with 880Mbps, when you start pulling the channels around the macro blocking (or rather the lack of compared to the GH4 100Mbps) really makes a difference, so I could see the benefit with the 400Mpbs options Internally on the GH5 without the need for 4kg+ of a atomos housing.

Look forward to see your finished video of your trip - not sure I want to get that close to Bulls sharks!
