In Topic: H20 Photo Pros, Mike Luzansky out of business

20 January 2011 - 06:57 AM

Just wondering whether anyone has any news on the Marine Visions / H20Underwater Pro's shops. Both websites are down and Joe's Underwater Videography site is also down. I've sent Joe a few email and nothing, I even think he has dropped off Facebook.
I hope everything is ok for them.


As of August 2010 I am no longer associated with Marine Visions / H2O Photo Pros.

In Topic: Wide Port for Gates hf-s11 housing?

01 September 2010 - 03:33 PM

Unless there is a third party solution, the GP32 is the widest port available for that housing.
The fathom ports like the wp25 and swp25 that Gates uses on their other small housings are not compatible with the Canon optics on the HFS11.

In Topic: External HD Monitor Question

Just think: Shooting video underwater while someone else ontop is holding the monitor..viewing everything your doing. Once I recieve mines (hopefully) I will let you guys know how it is

It looks like a cool little monitor, but unfortunately there's no way it's going to have a strong enough signal to transmit from in the water to someone on the surface.

In Topic: New Gates HF S21 Housings Arrive....WOW!

How is the ergonomics fot the LCD windows?
Can be compared to a separate LCD monitor?

I really like the way Gates utilizes the cameras open LCD screen. The body of the housing becomes a great sunshade. I've used this style housing in a lot of different conditions and have never had a problem with glare on the screen.

I have an s20 on my desk. Maybe there is a difference with S21, but on S20 the functions are as described. This camera definitely doesn't retain the last tab in the menu as did s10, etc.

You have to press set once to highlight FUNC, then set again to choose it (so 2 presses), then down, down to white balance, set, down nine times, set to choose custom white balance, then down, down set to actually execute a white balance.

Hey Ryan,
I'd love to get to talk to the Canon "guru" that made that change. It was a lot easier with the old "memory" function.
