  1. Hi JP, I have been thinking the same thing recently actually. I bought my 28-60 used for $250 and everything is going to be depending on it. I actually just received my housing, WWL1, and accessories yesterday!
  2. Very interesting! I'm in the very early stages of learning about this. I just got my first underwater housing and I'm starting with ambient light only. I'm sure I will be working through this mixed light problem soon, thank you for sharing your formula!
  3. Hey Blake! This is a great video and thank you for sharing! Today I finally placed the order for my new camera housing and WWL-1B. Sooooo stoked and can't wait to start using it. I am beginning with ambient light only just to keep it simple. Lights will come later for me.
  4. You are tempting me from deviating from my plan of building my A7Siii kit. Video is my focus though. Hmmm.
  5. Thanks for the reply Blake! It sounds like we're coming to the same conclusions, you're just several steps ahead of me. Do you really love the Keldan 4x lights? They look really nice, but I haven't committed to buying lights that expensive yet. Do you have any links to your content with the a6300 or anywhere you'll be sharing your A7Siii content? I'd be excited to see it! Best Riley
  6. Thanks for the tips Chris! I will be starting filming video in Cabo San Lucas and continuing on after that to Philippines, Indo, & Thailand. So I don't have any specific animal per say, but trying to have a kit that can do as much as possible with only one lens setup. Macro isn't really a priority at all for me. I'm thinking the bait balls and sea lions, & humpbacks in Cabo, corals, schools of fish, and cuttlefish in SE asia would be really fun. I can't really verify if the 28-60 & WWL-1 will do what I want until I try it. I've looked everywhere and seem to really enjoy the video content I can find coming from this combination, no way to be sure though (I guess). I'm sure trimming the housing will be very important as you said, I have seen bad trim issues cause problems and fatigue.
  7. The goal is to capture beautiful content for sharing via YouTube. I'm sure it will eventually progress into jobs if it goes well.
  8. This makes sense, thanks! I think I will start with the housing, lens, etc. Then lights will be next, and monitor last. I'm sure it's really nice to have a monitor.
  9. Hi all New member here, and I'm finally taking the steps to get my A7Siii underwater with me. I'm leaning towards the items below and would love to hear any input! I'll be 99% video and blue water diving is my main goal with this setup (trying to get the most versatile setup in one lens). Beginning in Cabo San Lucas to get my PADI Instructor later in 2022 and after that considering Philippines / Indonesia full time. I plan to document and share this journey with the A7Siii above and below water on my YouTube channel (getting this set up now). WetPixel has already been a fantastic source of information and inspiration, thank you! A7Siii (already own & use) Nauticam housing (haven't purchased yet) Sony 28-60mm lens (already purchased used) WWL-1 (haven't purchased yet) Lights are still to be determined (still so much to research/learn on lights) Beginning this without an external monitor, with practice I hope I can do this without one! Let me know what you think! I'll share my progress here if I can manage, or I'll add my YouTube link soon which would be much more efficient. Cheers! Riley
  10. Thank you both for the insight! I will see how far I can get without the monitor, hopefully I can make it work I'm really looking forward to this new journey.
  11. This is great info! My topside camera is currently Olympus, but it’s for sale and eventually I might grab an old A73 (for topside) so I can share lenses/batteries between cams and streamline my stuff. So so so excited! I’ve been endlessly reading and I’ve settled on the same kit I think you’re running, the WWL1 with 28-60. I’ve only ever taken a GoPro hero 5 underwater. So this is life changing, and I’m changing my life for it!
  12. Great videos Gary! I've watched them all. Big inspiration for me. I'm about to purchase a Nauticam housing for my A7Siii, do you feel at all limited on photos or do you mess with photo at all? My focus is on video for sure, but I'm sure I'll try some photos here and there. Riley
  13. WWL-1 (original) might even be better for me, so if you have one let me know!
  14. Do you know if the WWL-1B has a lanyard attachment point? I'm not sure if it's a true requirement, but I would like to have the option on a deep dive site especially. I see the original WWL-1 does have this as Chris mentioned above.
