  1. You need to have close to real color video to begin with before doing any color grading. You're not shooting RAW, so you can't restore color from a green tinted video. First rule of shooting underwater video is learn how to custom white balance.
  2. The FOV of the Osmo Pocket should improved once put into the housing. Besides, there may be more 3rd party accessories once it become more popular. GoPro is really loosing ground lately as they are not able to catch up with the industry innovation so I'm sure everybody is going to jump on DJI eventually.
  3. it's 1/2.3" sensor, but hey, for the price and the right light condition, it could beat a lot of camera!
  4. Thanks Richard, that make sense. Too bad I haven't had the chance to do a night dive with the DM60 yet, otherwise I will be able to gauge how wide the light beam is. What kind of working distance are we talking about with these 12000 lumen cob light when use during the day, say on a sunny day at 90ft? My experience so far is no more than 2-3 ft from the subject.
  5. I have the Archon DM60, which has the flat port, how can you tell it's 90 or 110 degree. The light beam seems quite spread when I use it.
  6. That's just what I thought with the GH5S short coming, the BlackMagic Cinema 4K will have the same issue. The micro jitters could be smooth out in post such as using warp stabilizer, but you would have to sacrifice 5% of resolution to crop. Ideally a camera that do not have IBIS should shoot at 4.5K so there would be plenty of room to crop for stabilization in post.
  7. Grouper season just wrapped up, glad that I got some good footage this year without hurricane interruption. The dive condition could be challenge most of the time, but every now and then, you can some decent calm sea, but visibility could still be bad: Shot with Panasonic LX-100, two Archon WM66 light, and Opteka 0.3x lens (modified).
  8. What do you guys think of the shortcoming of not having IBIS? I know a guy who said the IBIS in the GH5 made shooting video super great. Those who have GH5 and GH5S, how bad is the IBIS difference? I have been shooting video seriously for about 3 years, most time I can get the footage stable depends on dive condition and how relax I am. However, 90% of the time I still get micro jitters shake regardless how I configure my rig to make it neutral/slightly negative. IBIS would have taken care of these micro jitters.
  9. Depends on the price of the housing, the Pocket Cinema 4K probably is not that attractive due to the fact that it doesn't have IBIS. The Panasonic full frame has IBIS, even thought it will be twice the price of the Cinema 4K, but the Panasonic full frame seems to be more "future proof" for a while in term of image quality.
  10. There is just a bit of confusion in term of the camera line up roadmap. The Panasonic S1 and S1R is 4K60fps. But isn't Panasonic has the goal to create 8K camera by 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan? If they release S1 and S1R in 2019, would a 8K camera release in 2020? That seems to be too close in term of flagship camera roadmap. I don't think 3/4 sensor is capable of doing 8K, so I don't think they will put 8K on GH6. I'm just surprise the S1 and S1R doesn't do 8K as it could give RED for a run of competition.
  11. Eventually somebody will make an adapter convert Canon lens to L-mount so as long as the camera body is popular and in demand, it shouldn't be a problem.
  12. I have 3 brand new Archon WM66 for sell. I purchased them in bulk so I have extra. I'm currently using two of this and just got done testing it with the Goliath Groupers in South Florida. You can PM me if interested. There is no sample or review of the Archon WM66 yet so I should be the first one who post the sample soon. The performance of the Archon WM66 is similar to the "Scubalamp v6k pro" which you will see plenty of sample and some satisfied discussion here in Wetpixel. Here is more info about the Archon WM66 (my price will be a lot cheaper than the MSRP) http://www.archonlight.com/archon-cob-diving-video-light-wm66.html If you want light for video, the Archon WM66 is a good budget setup for 12000 lumen and CRI 95. It however only have 2 power settings and doesn't have fancy features like red light or UV light. Also, when using powerful light, make sure to either turn off the light, or point it down when not using it as the light will create a lot annoyance to other divers.
  13. There is a report that the battery life is better than expected. I hope the housing companies make room to put in the external SSD, as that will save you $2000 to buy CF card that's fast enough to shoot RAW. The focus mechanism of the BMPCC4K is basically just like using "Back button focus", it's the style I have been using for years. The deal breaker for me is no any sort of IS. Panasonic will announce their Full Frame camera on Sept 26, so it seems like every few months we have something new to look forward to. There is no point to pre-order the BMPCC4K at this point.
  14. Strange, people in South East Asia already get their BPCC4K?This one is from Thailand:
  15. May be you flooded the LX100 II and you have your old LX100 Mark 1 as back up, so now you need to configure the housing to take the old Mark 1? If the part require the user to send the housing to Nauticam repair shop to install then it would be an issue.
