  1. Asking price R E D U C T I O N !!! $4000 for the entire kit!
  2. Noticed the formatting of this on tapatalk is horrible. Clarifications below. Asking price - $4,500
  3. For sale is a complete Micro Four-Thirds underwater camera system. I have made the switch to mirrorless full-frame (Panasonic S1H) so everything must go! I would rather sell everything at once, so before I split up and start entertaining offers on individual items, I am offering everything listed here for one discounted price. More detail below. Lenses All lenses are in good to very good condition. None have been professionally cleaned, though there are no visible imperfections in resulting video. The 7-14mm lens has been modified by adding the filter holder to the back of the lens made for the 8mm fisheye lens (not included). This allows you to use red/magenta filters for underwater, or ND filters for land photography (e.g. long exposure waterfalls). Ports All ports are in good to very good condition. The flat port is glass and is in very good condition. The dome port is acrylic and has some small blemishes that can be buffed out using the novus system. I will include some of each type of solution in the sale. Housing The Nauticam NA-GX85 housing is in very good condition with normal signs of wear. Nothing has ever flooded in this kit. Price New: USD$6,618 Asking: USD$4,500 What’s Included: Price Nauticam Housing, Ports and Gears Part# New NA-GX85 Housing 17712 1500 N85 6'' Acrylic Wide-Angle Dome Port w/Focus Knob 36164 780 N85 Macro Port with M77 Thread 36161 530 O1250-Z Zoom Gear 36147 640 P714-Z Zoom Gear 36044 240 P714-F FOCUS GEAR 36043 240 O60-F Focus Gear 36149 180 Lenses Panasonic 7-14mm f4 650 Olympus 12-50mm f/3.5-6.3 EZ 422 Olympus 60mm f2.8 Macro 400 Camera and Extras Panasonic GX85 598 Panasonic BLG10 Batteries x 2 84 Wasabi BLE9 Batteries x 2 40 Panasonic DE-A99B Travel Charger Custom Quadrapod (1 leg better than a tripod) - 2 6" BTS Arms 84 - 2 8" BTS Arms 94 - 4 BTS Clamps 136 USD$6,618 Sample videos
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. That parrotfish didn't seem to like your housing, but you got some great footage!! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. 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.

  15. 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
