FS: Nauticam NA-GH3 / GH4 Housing and Camera + Keldan Luna 8 CRI Lights

26 December 2017 - 05:40 AM

For Sale:
(Due to GH5 Upgrade)

 

A Nauticam NA-GH3 Housing with the GH4 Upgrade Kit to enable use with the GH4.

 

Its all working perfectly, last dive was sub 100m and it worked fine. It does have a few cosmetic marks (mainly on the lower rear) but its just some slight cosmetic wear. I had intended on keeping it as a purely macro rig, but not sure I can justify keeping two housings - and I want some more lights :)

FlexiTray II with 2 Handles (not shown)

Vacuum Electronics (Requires vacuum valve)

GH4 (USA Edition - so no EU 29:59min limit) which has the V-LOG-L upgrade - it great condition, its been mostly in the housing so very near mint.

 - Includes: Battery, charger, strap, body cap, flash cover in the original box

 

800e all together.

Keldan Luna 8 CRI Lights, set of 2 with the 5,000lm CRI Modules + The 5,000lm CYAN Modules for ambient shooting, comes with chargers and battery (1 for each light). I'm moving to the even greater power lights, so would like to sell these too.

 

They are also in good condition, the domes have a few marks, but nothing to effect the lighting quality and the body as a couple of marks.

Nauticam Offset handles or me going mad?

03 December 2017 - 12:55 AM

I just recently got the housing for my GH5 to replace my GH3 housing.

However when I went to fit my Inferno / Flame Monitor housing bracket to the handles it didn’t seem to fit straight.

I wondered if it was bent in some way however after dismantling everything and checking everything at least three times it appears that the handle on the right is further forward than the left

Can anyone else confirm that this is correct?

Flying with Camera Gear (UK <> Hurghada)

So...

 

The current rules have been in place now for a few months with no large electrical items in your hand luggage. So no iPads, laptops etc.

 

Anyone been there and back recently? What did you pack in your hand luggage?

 

Thinking my standard ThinkTank Roller with my lights, camera housing, arms, batteries, lenses etc etc isn't going to go down well on the return leg....


Panasonic 14-42mm ii vs 14-42mm PZ...

27 March 2017 - 11:01 PM

Since last year I was a big believer of the 14-42mm MK2 lens, its super sharp, has nice contrast and works great with wet lenses like the Nauticam WWL-1 to provide a really versatile underwater combo.

 

Previously I had the 'power zoom' variant - but from the reviews the MK2 was a better lens - so I got a copy of that and have been using it ever since, however at the weekend I noticed something in my footage and compared the two lenses, which has made me consider this over the MK2.

 

Stepless IRIS...

 

If using Shutter Priority mode (so keeping at 1/60 for 30fps) on my GH4 and keeping the ISO at 400 - I would let the camera ride the IRIS to control exposure, however while reviewing the footage in FCPX, I could see in both the footage and the waveforms clear 'steps' when the camera adjusts the aperture to keep the exposure correctly.

 

Having a play at on land with the PZ lens - it definitely doesn't do this and although does move from f4 to say f7 - it does it in a smooth fashion with no detectable steps or jumps in exposure.

 

Just thought I would post, this if anyone is looking at either of the 14-42mm for video use.


Valstech LenZo iPhone7/7+ Housing on Kickstarter

24 January 2017 - 12:11 PM

Another iPhone housing has been put on kickstarter. Normally I don't look at this stuff, but this one caught my eye as it's with a slight difference - you have access to some of the touch screen and so can use (in a limited way some Apps underwater - confirmed iBooks work!) and fully the built in camera app.
