  1. You should be able to find them - both Ikelite and Nauticam made them. The Nauticam housing is nice. Not as good as the GH 4/GH5 housings, but also much smaller. I still love mine - just been too busy with work to dive! (Blasphemy I know). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Thanks by the way! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I've started a project to retrofit one of the "small batch" triggers from this site but have yet to finish it. You are right that the housing and space above the camera is tight. You would have to remove the assembly to open the camera flash, which of course wouldn't be an issue as you wouldn't be using it. I'll try to do some measurements to give you an idea of what might fit. I've left mine on 1/125 for pics with strobes, which I only shoot about 5% of the time. I haven't had any motion blur that I could see, but obviously lose some flexibility on aperture and ISO. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I did test the MWB on the GX85 on the 3 day. I was able to get a good MWB at a very dark 45fsw. That being said, the camera is not great in low light and both shots are a bit noisy. I will post these shots in the next couple of days. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I personally like the layout of the buttons on the Nauticam housings, specifically for the GH4 and GH5. The dedicated large back button focus, and re-routed WB and ISO buttons make for very intuitive operation. The GH2 and GX85 housings do not have these conveniences. I can't speak for the other housings. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. It's an issue with the OP's account. Click on the "view original" link below each pic and you can see them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I just changed out the filter folder the way trickster described. I remember seeing mention of needing an additional plastic spacer/shim - but I did not find that step necessary. Here's that thread: https://www.dpreview.com/forums/thread/3480692 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. I used to use tape to attach the filter, then I ended up buying the filter holder made for the 8mm fisheye lens and installed that on the back the lens. I don't see any reason to use glue. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Saw one for sell here a few months ago: https://www.facebook.com/groups/273948869393071/permalink/1351901114931169/?sale_post_id=1351901114931169 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. You know, I still haven't done much testing around this, I've mainly been using artificial lighting. I have a 3 day trip this weekend so I will do some tests and get back to you next week. Bobby Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. That parrotfish didn't seem to like your housing, but you got some great footage!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Yes - I use these. http://www.flex-arm.com/en/flex-arm-underwater-with-ball-mount.html Are you looking to adapt a standard ball to the base (shown above) of a loc-line or the top end? I have a couple extra of the top end kind I can sell that I'm not using (I'm using the base one to connect the flex arm to the housing, and flex to YS mount to attach to strobes/lights.

  12. A couple points of consideration: 1) 60p requires a faster shutter speed and, subsequently, more light. Depending on what you are shooting, and how you plan to treat the footage in post, 1080p60 may be a better option then 4k 30p. In general though, the 4K I've downrezzed looks better than native 1080 footage. 2) While true that standard definition footage doesn't look as good on a 1080 or 4K display, a high quality source (especially true 480p footage from a DVD) looks much better than more compressed and especially interlaced footage. Also, the negative affects up upscaling are much more apparent going from 480 to 1080, then going from 1080 to 4K. The size of the display (and quality of the scaling) make a big difference here as well. I believe some of this has to do with what the human eye is able to perceive in detail. The same (quality) 1080 footage may look perfectly fine on a 8k 60" display at home, but when projected on a large screen at 8k the drop in quality will be more obvious. 3) I'll still watch a great dive film in any resolution Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I've generally not taken my old tripod setup when I've shot wide (7-14mm On M43), only when I'm shooting macro (60mm) or with my general purpose (12-50mm) lens. I plan to start using my new tripod/quatri-pod setup on every dive now. The telescoping legs are more attractive for this as well.. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Sure thing, see below. Here's a link to the video: And BLOG entry: http://www.ti-leidland.no/en/blog/46-scubadiving/136-diy-quatropod-for-underwater-housing Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
