  1. For Sale: Nauticam M16 Offset Vacuum Valve As per backscatter listing: https://www.backscatter.com/Nauticam-M16-Offset-Extension-with-Vacuum-Valve-wi Will post up photos of actual unit later. In used condition, works perfectly, will come complete with vacuum pump. Location in Spain, happy to ship EU. Looking for 130e + postage.
  2. Sorry for the delay in answering. You will need to replace the NA-GH5 with the NA-GH5SV to obtain access to the new M24 port - no modifications available. At this time I don't believe there is any trade-in options going forward. I've now upgraded to the GH5SV housing and I've had my existing (NA-FLAME) Inferno housing modified by Nauticam to the new M24 port - it required re-drilling and anodising to access the M24 port connector, I now have access to the newer / stronger Nauticam HDMI cables and they are easy to remove for transport and replacement. Kudos to Nauticam on the new cabling - they have a longer warranty on them too! I now also gain the ability to use 10bit @ 4K60 to ProRes with the GH5 / GH5s - however that wasn't my primary goal (as I have a RAW enabled BMPCC4K) - my goal was to get the bigger port and more robust cabling. I am not sure what upgrade programs are in-place worldwide, you will need to speak with your local Nauticam Rep, as different regions may provide different options, but I don't believe there is any straight NA-GH5 > NA-GH5SV upgrade paths. Agreed it looks slowed down - Looks like the standard 60P down to 30P (or 24P) trick. Nice thou!
  3. Yeah found a few good offers around £40-£50 on ebay, but need one in 2 weeks max. - Ordered one off ebay with expedited delivery - says 6 business days. fingers crossed.
  4. Howdy All, On the lookout (UK or EU) for a Lumix DMW-FL70 flash unit for the GH5 if anyone has one laying around.
  5. Do mean you have the MWL-1 flip, or the standard M67 filp? Great news! Even owning the bayonet system, having it on a flip would be much more preferable.
  6. We will see, I'm assuming as Alex has all the goodies to hand, he knows. The only thing I can see, is we might need to cut a groove out for the rear of the foam, for the closing clip to latch on.
  7. I've spoken with Alex at Nauticam UK and he thinks the above flip holder will hold the WWL-1 (and float collar!) due to it using the same screw hole placement as the MWL-1 and the arms/joint being longer than the normal 67mm flip holder. I've ordered one - hope it works!
  8. Are you talking about the Double Flip Holder for MWL-1 #86222 ?
  9. The Inferno (NA-FLAME) is also getting the M24 port too. Will post up about the new GH5V and revised Inferno housings shortly....
  10. One thing I did was go Pelicase - but go bright. Went for the Paramedic Orange colour, if that gets stolen it’s gonna be very visible! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My Nauticam GH4 housing and WWL1 worked as normal at sub 100m diving the wreck of the Zealot in the Red Sea, didn't notice any issues with any buttons or functions. (apart from my brain)
  12. Yeah - snap. Its just the left hand side (that werid eh!) What lens were you using? (I was using the PZ variant of the 14-42mm with the 29mm port, I've yet to try the Mk2 14-42mm with the 35mm port)
  13. My first underwater camera was a Casio EXILIM EX-Z1000 back in 2007. It was a very last minute purchase at Curry’s at Healthrow Airport for a dive trip to Thailand. I think it was £320 or something with the dive case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Finally got out and dived this weekend with the BMPCC4K. Was mainly shooting ambient lighting in 8-25m of water with no filters or lights. I got a couple of shots with lights, but haven't look at these yet. So fair I was impressed with the housing handling (button layout probably not as good as the GH5 housing if I'm honest - would be nice to have the AF button on a thumb lever, more than a push button on the rear) but button layout is good enough. I purchased the hand strap, but this is not good combo, as you need to move your hand to reach the front dial to change aperture, so took it off as it got in the way. Screen, in shallow waters, it was hard to see, the focus assist (when you could see it) was very clear, and I found, once I had focused it initially at the beginning of the dive, I didn't need to touch it again. Getting a bit deeper, the screen was lovely, with a clean layout and no lag. Looking forward to adding the 7" atop for better ergo with a deep hood. Buoyancy needs work, as I was a bit negative and front heavy, but as I found in the pool with the inferno it should balance out nicely. Really impressed with the highlight handling, close to the surface it didn't blowout the surface like my GH4 and GH5 would have. Colour handling very similar to the GH5, obviously it can't restore what isn't there, but no banding or compression issues either when playing with the colour wheels and channel mixer in Resolve. Q0 at 60p 4K DCI was no problem with the Samsung T5 drives, no dropped frames or issues. The HFR button is a real nice feature, you tell the camera you want to film in 30p and the HFR button will switch to 30p/60p - but on import to Resolve, it will automatically mark the 60p clips for slowdown. Nice. A few clips I had a quick look at and play with last night. Need to spend more time with Resolve (as I'm used to FCPX) but happy with the results so far. Will post up some straight from camera BRAW files later today / tomorrow for anyone interested. (They are huge mind..) One BIG issue which has reared its head, is due to the camera not doing any in-camera lens corrections (one of the reasons I wanted the BMPCC4k) - the side petals of the WWL-1 are visible in shot shots (I presume due to the OIS in the lens moving) so a slight crop-in (in-post) is needed. I haven't tried it with the OIS turned off - but something to consider. Overall, from my initial dive, I'm super pleased with the camera and what Nauticam have done with the housing.
