  1. Very interesting. If you ever used adobe platform for stock photos it has a great AI engine that identifies keywords so Adobe has the technology too but seems not to want to use it. I will give a go to this plug in
  2. Yes a good editor seems to make a big difference keep it up Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I recommend you read my post https://interceptor121.com/2019/10/13/using-rectilinear-wide-lenses-underwater/ MFT rectilinear lenses have a lot of distortion once auto correction kicks in the image is stretched to fill the frame as the original sensor image is distorted. This generate a loss of several megapixels and edges problems more than what dome ports already give. This applies to any MFT lens but with zoom wide angle the issue is significant There is also a physical limitation of the ports on the market none can manage 7mm field of view as the domes are too small. I would therefore recommend you invest in 1. panasonic 8mm fisheye - has identical performance to Olympus at apertures you will use and is lighter 2. Panasonic 8-18 mm rectilinear In terms of performance glass ports tend to perform better but they are considerably more expensive therefore you can start with acrylic, I am selling a 7" dome for the 8-18 as I have bought a glass dome
  4. best production so far Doug especially colours look much better
  5. The housing has two wheels one for front and one for back it controls everything on the camera no buttons are unmapped except some function ones?
  6. HLG has minimum ISO 400 so I used a 3 stops ND filter. I had lens that was not particularly wide wasn’t expecting the dolphin to come so close There is no color correction however as the shots had different camera angle I have used match color when they were visibly different The image had a lot of contrast and the colours were already vivid so I left it as is I think snorkelling is the perfect opportunity for HLG especially when you have ripple light on the dolphins looks excellent in all set ups Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Doesn’t look like it despite the Tv being correctly recognised Basically final cut itself doesn’t manage it full stop Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Megapixels have nothing to do with equivalence this sensor is around 3 stops from full frame If the pictures are not sharp is due to other reasons Not having a flash you have motion blur easily under 1/200 shutter You don’t need f/8 for portraits maybe for macro depending on dof Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I have tried today driving the HDR Tv using the eGPU and the final cut multiple display with no joy
  10. Looks like your housing is not set with any bulkhead capability either monitoring or recording as the connected is for the sync cables I really struggle to understand Nauticam fault into this
  11. Sorry but what is your issue exactly? What camera do you have the you feel Nauticam solution is an annoyance?
  12. f/8 with your camera is like f/22 on a full frame you are at diffraction limit so from sharpness point of view the camera will perform much better at wider apertures in terms of sharpness. As your camera allows you a very fast shutter speed you can just increase that to 1/500 and more to create a dark background if needed. For portrait work f/4 or f/5.6 will be more than sufficient also in terms of depth of field or with wet lenses
  13. Yes this guy really is massive! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The people that do that sort of stuff knick it before it can even be taken down I had a case of a guy who cropped my logo off a YouTube video and actually I would have not had a problem if he had asked me Facebook stops at 3 megapixels but for some people is enough so the only way is to down grade to 1.5 MP that can be shared on a phone but not put on a full size website It is a risk of social media and one of the reasons to be cautious if you care Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. In final cut pro you set your project preference to the distribution format of choice in this case 1080 the application will use original or optimised media at the source resolution to create render files at 1080 You can also run a 4K project and then scale down to 1080p at the end Generally I create a master in 4K and let the platform scale down (youtube etc) I only create smaller files for facebook in the rare occasion I put something there in 1080 p but I work in 4K all the way through
