  1. Granted, if you are primarily shooting shallow with good light on a sunny day then low light capabilities aren't as important. I primarily shoot in caves, wrecks below 200 FSW, and at night. In these types of environments low light comes into play, especially if you are shooting in caves with goethite. Cave shoots require a lot of silhouettes on a wide 16-35. I have experimented with several profiles on the Sony A7SII, and I am extremely impressed with Slog3 in these type of conditions. I haven't experienced any banding. It does takes extra time in post to grade but I am happy with the results. I don't recommend Slog3 for every application, I merely suggested to the OP to look into it, since he had switched his focus to a DSLR and was doing research. Of course white balance is important. As far as Sony A7SII, I am very satisfied with the results underwater, and it is a low light monster. I have shot on numerous camera rigs, and have yet to find one that is perfect and without limitations. If you do please inform me. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Also, I can’t emphasize enough how important low light ability is in a camera. From what I have seen about the new GH5 it doesn’t have the same abilities as the Sony A7SII. Which ever camera you end up going with take a hard look at the low light. No matter what quality of 4K you get won’t make a difference if it doesn’t handle low light. Another user had some issues with color on Sony for Video. I would take a look at the Slog3 because it gives you a lot of control in color in post. Also what is the end result for your footage. Do you really need 4:2:2? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. That is a great camera as well. I switched from Canon to Sony for a few reasons that are lengthy to discuss. But here is some footage from a cave in Tulum I shot with the Sony A7SIi internal 4K. It was my first time using the camera and first time using Slog3 , so I didn’t have the exposure down perfect.
  4. Really depends. If you have a good piece of music go ahead and lay it down in the track and cut over it. I do both. Sometimes cut the selects together then add music. If there is no voice over or sound ups then it could be faster to just cut with the music track you prefer. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Also, when looking at cameras for underwater video, you really need something that does low light well. Unfortunately the Z100 isn't the best camera for low light shooting. If you went the route with a DSLR like the Sony A7SII which does shoot 4K but at 420 then you would have to add an external recorder like the Atomos Shogun to get the 422 you desire. The upside is it doubles as an external monitor. I have shot 4K on the A7SII without a Shogun, in caves and I was impressed by the low light capabilities. For most shooting underwater you can get away with a 16-35 lens. Sony has excellent autofocus with the Vario Tessar lens. The one draw back of course is you have to switch your lens to do macro. . Most underwater shots are the epic wides anyway and with the 16-35 you can get decent close up shots. It is hard to find and all in one underwater video camera setup that handles macro, wides and low light all in one package. I have gone through many camera setups over the years and really enjoy using the A7SII, and Nauticam is the best housing I have ever used. If you do go this direction PM me and I can give you some tips on using the camera underwater. If you do get a Nauticam definitely get the vacuum seal. Here are an approximation of costs: Sony A7SII $2400 Sony 16-35 lens $1200 Atomos Shogun $1300 Nauticam Housing with Dome port plus vacuum seal $4600 Nauticam Housing for Shogun $5000.

  6. Have you considered going with a Sony A7SII with a ATOMOS Shogun. Nauticam makes an excellent housing for both and it would be a smaller rig. In addition you could have the versatility of switching to macro as well. The other avenue is getting into a RED system. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder with Sealux underwater housing Used Sony HXR-NX3D1 NXCAM 3D Compact Camcorder. This camera is full working condition with some minor cosmetic wear and tear. The LCD screen has a few pixels out but does not effect the quality of recording. There is an internal hard drive that allows 1080P HD recording up to 9 hours. There are 2 XLR inputs for microphones. This is a great camera if you are interested in shooting 3D or just 2D. Perfect for someone looking for a small camcorder that is easy to use with excellent quality. The SeaLux housing has complete control over all functions of the camera and is extremely ergonomic. It can be taken to depths of 200 feet which I have personally been with it. If you are intersted or have questions please PM me or reach by email. Nino.ten@gmail.com $2100 obo
