In Topic: LX100 Underwater Video - Anyone else have experience with the LX100

15 March 2015 - 07:30 PM

I found it to be noisy even at ISO 400, 800 is barely usable, red filter may not be that useful as it reduces the light that can reach the sensor.

Continuous AF is bad so I turned it off and use pre-focus instead. MWB is generally good down to 15-20m.

 

Here is the screen capture of one of my clips.

ISO 800, MWB, a lot of chrominance noise even after using neat video.

Yes, my LX100 was stuck in the housing just because I forgot to turn the aperture back to F16 (or 4:3?....I forgot) before taking it out, spent more than 10 minutes to take it out finally.

That doesn't sound right, you can't focus on all three AF, AF-Macro and Manual (using peaking)? How far are you from the subject?

It could not focus with AF, it was fine with AF-Macro, I wonder if there is any "side-effect" of using AF-Macro, such as cannot focus to infinity...

The subjects were around 60cm from the camera.

Am not surprised if the glass is really a slice of 3.5" minimum focus distance is 18cm so if you want to use the full zoom you need a +2 diopter
Probably you will get around 40/50 before it stops focussing

I meant my LX100 could not focus even at 24mm underwater.

My LX100 can only focus with AF-Macro behind the 3.5" dome port( #38702), is this mentioned in its user guide?
