  1. Link to Panasonic presentation http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wuxXBRLaqyw Seems like the S1 is a GH5 in a full frame?
  2. According to a press release from Atomos. https://www.atomos.com/press-releases/atomos-records-4k-10-bit-full-frame-video-from-new-nikon-z-6-and-z-7-mirrorless-cameras it would be possible to record a 10 bit 4K HDR from the new Nikon 7 series mirrorless cameras. Need Nauticam to release housings for the Nikons and for the Atomos V
  3. Atomos published a Youtube article in which Jeremy claimed that recording to the Shogun/ Ninja with a Log Profile was HDR.
  4. Original Atomos Shogun and later versions are touchscreen. The Nauticam Housing gives access to most important controls
  5. https://www.atomos.com/ninjav Whilst not cheap, at $695 US it does record at 4K60fps over HDMI. Hoping Nauticam produces a housing
  6. https://www.atomos.com/ninjav Looks like 4K/60p ProRes HQ No SDI, but HDMI 2.0 It should be a good option due to its smaller size.
  7. http://youtu.be/DTyZxVCBduo 4K 422 internally and dual image stabilisation. Looks like a significant upgrade over the GH4
  8. Have you considered the Nauticam GH4 housing. Very well thought out and constructed housing.
  9. Is this still available as I have had no response to PM
  10. Thanks One of the more frustating (and expensive) factors of underwater video/ photography is thet the newer/better? model almost never fits the older model's housing
  11. "- Not ideal screen position - very close to you, but perhaps I just need to get used to that, but at the moment I'm holding it out in front more. - Heavy - As I'm recording in 10bit, I can't have the GH4's info displayed externally, so changing settings, I need to 'flip' the flame up to see the screen for changes for example to WB, ISO etc." Agree, these are an issue with my shogun rig. With the size of the atomos screen you need to hold it out in front anyway to see the whole screen, unless you have geeko eyes. I usually just flip the screen up for WB ect, although for a couple of stops to ISO and apperture just look at the waveform. The clamp on the mounting makes it easy to adjust the position of the screen. I did experiment with mounting the atomos on top of the GH4, so I could see both screens at once, but it made it hard to control pitching up and down. Would you post some photos of your atomos housing with the door open and the recorder mounted. I am interested it what internal changes were made compared to the shogun version. Does the flame mount to the viewfinder door? Is there room to have both batteries fitted to the flame? Thanks, I'm envious aready. col edit to remove question about fans, you have already answered it!
  12. That's really interesting to hear it's buoyant. Had visions of needing MORE arms. Good to know. [emoji1303] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Initially I had problems getting the trim right and avoiding the lens pitching down. I ended up attaching a small trim weight pouch to a ball mount on the base of the shogun housing. From your photo it seems you could add the ball mount to the back of the housing instead. Does the original Shogun fit into the new housing?
  13. Interested to see how buoyant the housing is. I have the previous shogun and its about 2lb positively buoyant. One you get the trim right the size is really not that much of an issue in many circumstances. Even if it didn't offer 10bit recording, the size of the shogun viewfinder and focus peaking are increditably useful.
  14. Rajah Ampat on a liveaboard. I did a trip on indosiren from Sorong to ambon, in late august, a couple of years ago. A good mix of muck macro and mantas. Not a budget option but well worth it.
  15. They go under the ball mounts on the flexitray/ easitray handles, but he are different models to suit different Nauticam handles/ housings. Best bet would be contact reefphoto or backscatter about one for your specific setup.
  16. More detail on how to fit a rear filter holder that give full zoom range. http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/51390321
  17. There are two solutions. Nauticam USA have suggested using tape to stick a magic filter to the rear of the 7-14mm. I believe Chris Parsons used this method. The alternative is: the rear filter holder,Part number VXQ1911 Frame, from the panasonic 8mm will fit the 7-14mm with some minor modifications. You need to remove part of a plastic raised ring on the lens side of the holder.
  18. I will qualify my advice by stating that I am videoing for pleasure (or self flagellation?) not professionally. A few questions: Are you intending to travel by aircraft with your setup? How willing are you to pay excess baggage charges? Do you have any paid work lined up and how often? Not sure that the GH4 qualifies as a" top of the line video rig. In, Australia, at least, the rig of choice for underwater cinematography, seems to be variatiations of red camera/ gates housing combination. At least that's what was used by on the recent BBC David Attenborough production on the great barrier reef. However you need to selling a lot of your video a lot of the time to come close meeting the cost of a red rig. I'm using a GH4 and nauticam housing. Have the panasonic 7-14 lens behind the nauticam 6" dome(#36164), with focus knob. Happy with this combination. The ability to use manual focus is not essential in many cirumstances,provided you use backbutton focus lock, but If the budget will allow it a manual focus option is worth it. Like many zoom lenses soft corners can be reduced by not shooting at the extremes, i.e. 7mm or 14mm. So include zoom gear. If the nauticam 180mm optical glass dome(#18809) and port adaptor with focus knob (#36052)had been available I purchased my setup I probably would have got it instead. I also have the olympus 12-50 behind the 36161 macro port. My thinking was I could shoot macro and mid shoots on the same dive. I practice, for my purposes at least, I should have got the olympus 60mm macro. The 12-50 is a good lens but not as much magnification as the 60mm macro and not wide enough for those close focus wide angle shots. There are other posts in this forum in praise of the panasonic 12-42 with cmc and wwl-1 wet-lens combinations.
  19. I've never used continuous af underwater. I found with the GH4, manual focus and using the back button AF/AE losk set to lock AF a better option.

  21. V-log is available to order for $99 for those in the US. Its tied to the camera serial number. Panasonic LUMIX GH4 V-Log L Function Firmware Upgrade Kit DMW-SFU1
  22. Love it Simon What setup did you use? Cheers Col
  23. Very nice Peter. Which lens did you use at Manta Sandy? And did you use the Shogun on this trip?
  24. With what you have at present,try using the backbutton set to Autofocus Lock. Set aperture to 8 or a larger number to get greater depth of field. Frame the subject, with the cross hairs on it. Press autofocus lock.
