Moses, water temp was around 23-24C and I was fine with my 5mm full suit plus a 3mm hooded vest. I went once with Sea Escape and once with MV Valentina and they were both very good operations. I was told that it is not allowed to fly a drone at Socorro Island as there is a military base there, though I flew my drone a couple of times at San Benedicto. It is a really beautiful island. Once my drone attracted the interest of heaps of birds, I guess I was lucky that I didn't lose it. You can check out my youtube channel for the videos if you are interested.
Went there twice once in February and once in January. Saw lots of silvertips and dolphins in January, lots of hammerheads, manta rays and whale sharks in February.
Didn't get to Roca Partida in my February trip due to wind, a big disappointment for me as it is the prime area for humpback whales and calves. I heard that the sea can be very choppy in May, in return it is the time for sharks.
I informed the liveaboard that I want to shoot with a drone in advance, had to inform the captain everytime I shot with it. I was not allowed to shoot in Socorro Island due to the military base there.
Dustin, did you experience any problem with MWB in shallow water, say 5 to 15 metres? I am using a 1DC underwater and it MWB very good at 20-30 metres, but it failed to WB at shallower water. I am using my hand as reference for MWB, thanks.
My first tests are depressing steaming my 1080p files 15 MBps results in massive stuttering on a panasonic set
Am picking up the sony on Sunday but I am a bit concerned about steaming 4K files on the LAN despite an AC1900 router that is super fast in wifi
Personally I am using this one and it plays my GH4 UHD clips from SD card flawlessly, I could also play my GH4 UHD files in my NAS through SAMBA, no stuttering.
