  1. Thanks for the info Whip and Phil, The buoyancy when on the scooter shouldn't be an issue as I have an extra 2.5kg lift in the scooter. I am wary of using the camera when not mounted to the scooter however for the reasons you mentioned. It's almost like this endeavour lends itself to buying lots of expensive options... Phil that is great info again thanks! I will definitely go with the newer faster lens!
  2. Thanks Chris, Those were my thoughts exactly. But as I'm new to all this, and it's a bit hard to imagine what the end product will be, I thought you guys would be the best people to ask!
  3. **EDIT: I have realised I put this in the photo section, not the video section. Apologies, if a mod gets to move it, that would be great.** Hello WetPixel! This is my first post as I take a bit of a dive into the pointy end of underwater camera gear so please be gentle. I am moving from a GoPro mounted to the front of my DPV which I have been using to shoot video on deep wrecks over the past few years. After a number of expeditions with some questionable footage, I thought that investing in to a decent camera would yield some better results. I'm looking at an a7Siii in with the WWl-1B but I'm wanting to know more about the lens and what it will offer me if I go for the fixed 28mm or the 28-60mm option. I have read many of @Phil Rudin's posts which have been very helpful in clearing up an concerns I have over going this way due to quality, and also his references in terms of understanding what these wet lens' actually do. So I suppose my question is, 28mm fixed or go for the zoom for more options, even if that is going to be more useful getting footage on the surface. I may well have completely missed some other important point, but like I said, I'm very new to this level of kit. Cheers, Dave If it helps, this is a link to my most recent video I put together after a dive. I'm basically looking to do a similar thing, but with a better camera. I did have a light fail before the dive on this one, so on the bottom it is dark and I'm really under gunned on the light.
