Will someone come up to make a housing for Samsung NX1?

My problem of focus is like this :

Setting : Continuous AF -> OFF  AFS

I tried to use prefocus so I step down the lens to F5.6, find something 3m away, press the shutter to focus and hope that eveything from 2m will be in focus and I don't have to worry about focusing again. But everytime I pressed the movie record button to record something, the next time I tried to record again the focus was not there anymore and I had to refocus again...that was really a problem as the focus ability of LX100 is really bad behind the 3.5" dome. I am sure that I did not touch the shutter button when I record a clip.

Yes, I start to think that it is a better idea to use a wide wet lens than a 3.5" dome.

You had a great trip!  Great that you got to see the hammers, depending on conditions sometimes they stay deep.  Where did you see the whale shark?


Wonderful job, brings back lots of memories for me.




Thanks Steve. We were fortunate that El Canon and El Boiler delivered as we could not go to Roca Partida as it was very windy, spent more than 40 hours on our way back to Los Cabos. We saw the whale shark at Socorro Island - Cabo Pierce.


Very nice job Frankie! Did you also shoot the drone footage?

Thanks Jack, yes it was my trip to bring my phantom 2.


Very fishy! Dome port seems to work well. The shallow footage looks very good the hammers a bit noisy but at least you had them. The dj phantom bit is excellent. Only thing I don't like is the colours there is a lot of purple tinge

Yes, the dome port works pretty good but it struggled to focus(it told me that the objects were too close but they were not). Also I am still in the dark of why the camera focus did not stay there when I have turned the continuous AF off and selected AFS. Everytime I found something interesting I have to focus again...when its ability to focus in low light is bad it was really a bad experience.

Where did you find the purple tinge in other than in those silkies? My monitor for editing is not calibrated so may not see what you see.

Visibility was not very good in most of the dives. No WA lens, just the 3.5" dome port.
