  1. The Panasonic 14-42 II mega O.I.S. lens + both macro and wide angle wet lens seems to work great for me shooting video on my GX8 & GH5. Keep in mind that I am talking video and not scrutinizing stills.
  2. Selling my Nauticam NA-GX8 housing on ebay. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nauticam-NA-GX8-Housing-for-Panasonic-GX8-camera/272951739320 $ 790.00 + free shipping
  3. Only the housing and handles are for sale (no port). $500 for the housing and handles - freight prepaid to U.S.
  4. My 2 cents: It is almost always 'all about the light'. This is only my second year of video but just as it was with stills - the lighting is everything (almost). Basically, I am using lights for macro and a red filter lens for ambient light. I have nailed down the macro part fairly well but admit having problems with ambient light. As mentioned above, a school of fish will pop with proper lighting but my neo lights just don't have the same punch as my ike strobes did when I was shooting stills.
  5. Housing w/ handles is still for sale. Reduced price $ 500.00
  6. #1 port is not for sale The original post CHANGED to housing only: Nauticam NA-7D housing for canon 7d w/ handles with 1" ULCS balls $ 980.00
  7. #2 port has been sold. The original posting is still available: Nauticam NA-7D housing for canon 7d w/ 4-3/4" arcylic dome w/ handles with 1" ULCS balls $ 1,250.00
  8. If I can sell the housing for $ 1,050.00, I will sell the port only for $ 200.00. Actually, I have 2 of these ports. The second one was my wife's port and it has some scratches that would require buffing out. The scratches do not amount to much in the water but if you want it in pristine condition, it will require some work to buff the acrylic with 1-2-3 polish. I will sell that one for $ 150.00.
  9. I think I like it ! New GX8 Camera, Nauticam housing, 45 mm prime and 14-42 zoom lens. Not in water yet but very responsive on land. Just the right size on my home made tripod. No handles to get in the way, buttons conveniently located and auto focus super fast. Although I must memorize button locations. Easy workflow in Premiere Pro but I am surprised at the large size 4k files. My SD cards are 68 GB / U3 but a 1 minute 4k video requires approximately 1 GB so I see 128 GB cards in my future. I also do not know if I will keep the 45 prime lens as the the 14-42 mega OIS lens is very sharp - not as sharp as the 45 prime but very close. I bought the 45 degree Nauticam eye piece and the eye piece together with the GX-8 electronic viewfinder is excellent - just turn off the LCD and only use the eye piece - like viewing a HD TV. I am afraid that I will have to take a quickie trip to test everything before my big trip in September - Oh - too bad. TomC
