  1. I do have to say....for me in the Pacific Northwest (Oregon) shooting salmon and other species in freshwater rivers, it is often difficult to stay below 3200 ISO even at 5.6. We really struggle to find enough light between forest canopies and deep topographic relief. Most days the only natural light comes from an indirect source.
  2. Thanks Johan! I've been trying to figure out how to solve that problem myself and will try your configuration. Would you be willing to to share you custom settings file so I could just load it up and give it a whirl?
  3. Here is a thread I started regarding custom setups of the Sony systems— would love to hear how everyone else is setting up their cameras.
  4. That’s awesome! Would you be willing to share the pdf/CAD drawings you developed?
  5. Nice work! Who did the custom foam?
  6. Thanks for the report @TimG which area of the Turks and Caicos were you at? I dove there a decade ago with the School for Field Studies field station on south Caicos. Lots of fond memories running into humpbacks on the wall, and researching the marine reserves for lobster and conch!
  7. I don’t know if others use American Sign Language while diving, but my college room mate and Iof mine and I enjoy carrying on conversation by that means while underwater. It probably isn’t generally accepted, but the “lights off” sign could probably be adapted for use underwater in this circumstance.
  8. Hi there, I'm interested! Sent you a direct message to discuss the details.
  9. @Davide DB the two buoyancy arms are attached to the two front tripod mounting balls that I added to the underside of my housing. See below for a side view that shows that more clearly. Now only if I could get my camera display to show only the settings so I could keep a clean feed on my monitor....
  10. Thanks for the great discussion everyone-- its obvious that there are many ways to configure one's setup! I ended up getting 2 Nauticam arms (75mm double ball arms) and a standard multi-purpose clamp (with the ball mount attachment) to run off of my extra housing mounting points. This is most similar to the second photo I originally shared without dealing with the triple clamp. It provides quite a bit of flexibility for running the monitor in the above, behind, or 45 degree angle configuration. There is extra room below to run the controls, and allows the monitor and HDMI cable to tuck in quite nicely behind the camera housing. An additional benefit is that it allows me to more easily control buoyancy in the shallow environments I frequently work in and still have independent lighting control. Let me know if you see any ways to improve upon the design here!
  11. @Tom_Kline Don't you use a ULCS clamp with a modified arm to provide a similar mounting point to photo #3 above? While the GH5/S and other housings have a cold-shoe attachment point for center mounting, not many other housings have that option. I seem to remember coming across a photo of that--- can you share it here?
  12. Hi all, In short order I will be receiving an underwater monitor and I am looking to determine the mounting strategy I will use. All of the arrangements I've come across are shown below (attached). Are there any that you find helpful that I haven't yet discovered? Kind regards, Conrad
  13. Wanting to bring this conversation to the top since I know more and more people have got their hands on the A1. Let me know how you set up your custom buttons!
  14. Have this same question. Does anyone have experience with the anglerfish monitor?
  15. Hey Phil, thanks for this valuable info-- I'm looking into the Tamron 17-28 or one of the 16-35 Sony lenses for a split shot setup (in rivers where larger domes are more prohibitive and likely to get scratched) How did the 180mm dome preform with the 16-35 F4 and the Tamron? Were you able to use the S&S correction filter with each combo?
