  1. Indeed, I never use the angles, only the speeds. My photography background I guess. But in this post 120 and 180 are used in two different ways. That's why it's possible it is confusing to the TS.
  2. Did he mean 1/180 s or 180°? Anyway, I find a longer shutterspeed in bad lighting conditions more important than the 180° rule. Especialy under water with slow movements, I prefer to go 360° when shooting in 60p. 1/60s is short enough in those conditions. In 30 p, I will use 180 or 270, depending on light conditions. To Eransalah, read about this stuff so you understand what you are doing, or you will depend on other peoples 'rules' to setup your camera.
  3. Google on 'Waveform explained'. 0 IRE is complete black, 15 IRE will show some detail in the blacks and less noise, especially if you lift things up in post processing. But GH5 footage is prone to noise, keep the ISO as low and the shutter speed as long as possible if you want to avoid it.
  4. Yes, but in contrary to other brands, they have a nice offer on this. If you buy the Nauticam housing for the Ninja V and the dedicated cable, you can return your older NA-GH5 and for 500$, they will send you the new NA-GH5v. I guess they will give your NA-GH5 a new front.
  5. I believe it is not possible. http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=50150 Maybe you could use a small optical trigger?
  6. I will! Just found out that the water temperature is 2°C/37°F! Nice! Beware, the FL70 has no built in batteries, so it uses the camera battery as well if that is your concern. I see only now you are living in Belgium as well. You can always try my FL70 if you like. I'm from Herne.
  7. topic was about GH5, no? GH4 has a built in flash, so no need for a small flash there. My friend has a GH4 though, I can ask him to test the FL70 if you want. But it will be in August only, I have a long trip ahead, diving in Iceland an Greenland!
  8. I use it for more than a year now, in manual and TTL. It does the job perfectly.
  9. Deepshots has a gear as well, quiet a bit cheaper than the Nauticam's https://deepshots.myshopify.com/collections/frontpage/products/deepshots-panasonic-8-18-zoom-gear-new I will have this next week and will test it with a 7" dome. A have a Seacam superdome as well, but I have to figure out the right extension for this lens.
  10. No, I don't use wet widangle lenses yet. I suppose the WWL-1 is the best in quality, but very heavy and expensive.
  11. I once had more or less the same question http://wetpixel.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=59958 Now, I dive with an Olympus 12-50 macrozoom, which I use mostly when I dive only once at a certain spot. It doesn't go very wide, but I can do fish as well as small critters. When I have time to do more dives, I choose between fisheye, 8-18 mm or a dedicated macro.
  12. I use the 45° viewfinder for macro. Less bulky and pricey. I like the fact that I can concentrate on the subject by looking through a viewfinder.
