  1. I've got a Dive and See housing with Ninja 2 for sale. It comes with a 5m extension cable and bulkhead to fit to a Nauticam housing. Its not as fancy looking as the Nauticam housings but it has a better and more solid connector. Anyway, PM me if you're interested.
  2. Hello fellow listers, I'm putting my Atomos Ninja2 recorder and underwater housing from Diveandsee up for sale. The setup also includes a 6m long underwater HDMI cable for pole-cam uses. The atoms Ninja recorder is working very well. The charger only charges one battery at a time as one position does not work. A new charger is 30USD on B&H. The setup comes with a bulkhead for use on Nauticam M16 hole and a 6m underwater HDMI cable with DNC connectors. Also spare o-rings for the Diveandsee housing. The setup cost 3100 USD new. I'm asking 1500 USD, buyer pays shipping. Thanks for watching. Espen.
  3. Hello fellow listers! I'm offering two Patima substrobe housings for the Nikon SB-900 flash for sale. Each strobe housing comes with a Nikonos 5 sync cable. Both housings are in good shape with minimal wear. I have been using these flashes ability to sync faster than 1/250th of a second, to freeze fast movemets. It is possible to use the entire nikon speedflash protocol with these; i.e faster sync, stroboscopic, etc. I'm asking 500USD each. Buyer pays shipping. This includes the sync cable and neoprene cap.
  4. Will do, but it might take a while. I'm busy diving these days but will try to edit and grade something in a few weeks.
  5. Thanks for the reviews Simon! Very informative. I have "Jerry-rigged" an old Nikon F100 Nexus housing to fit my pocket camera with full focus and aperture control. I use a Nikon adapter and a Sigma 8-16mm lens behind a 170 port. I have been really happy with the dynamic range of this setup and have graded the raw files in Resolve. I did post a few frame grabs a while back in another thread. Last week I shot in very green and dark water at around 15m depth. I had to push the Raw files up two stops in post (Iso 3200). A little chroma noise reduction in post and voila! - useable sharp footage! I even managed to balance out the WB (No filter). Basically went out and bought a BMCC MFT and a Nauticam housing today. My only gripe with Nauticams housing is the lack of a extra aperture wheel on the right housing side to control the aperture ring on a speed booster or G-compatible Nikon adapter. I'll be making and installing one myself. Another stop of light and a wider field of view will be awesome! E. ;-)
  6. Thanks for the info! I have never had this happen to me.
  7. Hi Edmond, Its most beneficial to use a shutter angle around 180 degrees for best looking motion blur. If you shoot in a 50Hz environment then its good to use 172 because that will reduce flicker around artificial light. This has no consequence underwater where you would use a dc light source. Regarding kelvin I'd use a warm rather than cold setting so that you have some information in the red channel to work with when shooting without lights in prores (I recommend RAW for best results). That said I'd recommend you use a K that corresponds to your lights when using them and shoot raw when you are shooting without lights. I shoot raw for WA and prores for macro with lights. I use a daylight setting for my kelvin when shooting prores. Regarding the cards. There is still just one out there that supports RAW recording so the choice is kind of limited INMO. Happy shooting, E.
  8. Hello Thani, No artificial lighting just natural light. To me this camera does very well in low light, with a speed booster it could do even better when needed. I'm not too sure about the 4K model though it seems to like more light than what we have this time of the year. About diving in Norway: Visibility here is about 20m+ at this time but varies a lot depending on where you dive and what time of the year. Temperatures this time of the year range from around 0C to about 8C depending on where you dive. The outer coast being the warmest and the fjords being the coldest. Tell Sultan to bring his drysuit, he will need it! :-) I'm probably biased but I love diving in Norway and feel the diving is some of the best cold water diving in the world. E.
  9. I got my hands on a BMPCC not to long ago and last week I had the time to jerry rig one of my old film Nexus housings (a Nikon F100). These housings have two wheels to adjust aperture and focus/zoom so I could use these to adjust aperture and focus on a Sigma 8-16mm lens. I used a small glass dome and a standard adapter - not a speed booster. I test shot the rig in a dark cloudy winter day here in Norway. Lens was set to wide open and Iso at 800, which seemed to be just right light wise. A small tweak in adobe camera raw and here is the result: Aaargh! I'll need to upload this first.. stay tuned.
  10. Cheers guys! I did see a guy using the Nikonos 15mm on Reds to get good 3d video. Not sure you would be able to get that in front of a BM4k with a EF mount without serious mods if at all. But water contact optics sure would be nice! E.
  11. Thanks Jonny, Would that be the distagon Ziess? Canon or nikon mount or one of the pl mount cine primes? Thanks, Espen.
  12. Thanks Ferg, Yeah I've been thinking that is one of the possibilities. Here up north its highly unlikely you'll get f8 under normal conditions so it would have to be a lens that does a decent image a bit more open. But there aren't to many to choose from. The Tokinas have quite a bit of CA, do you know if they using any software to get rid of it in post? Thanks, Espen
