    -- Asking for EUR 1.200,--





  3. Thanks Peterbkk and Scubabob for explaining your settings with the GH4.

    I come from photo (www.joergblessing.com) and switched to the GH4 to learn video as well.

    I read up as much as I found online, but am still struggling with producing good footage.


    Would be supernice if anyone could help with a few questions:


    • Peterbkk states f2.8 as starting point for shooting in M mode. I learned that with video I should double framerate to get my shutter speed (trying 30p and 60p for now). So I can only adjust ISO and Aperture, right? On photo I start off for wide-angle on f8 to get enough depth of field. My 7-14mm has only f4 but isn't that difficult to get things in focus. especially with a lens at f2.8 ???
    • To keep shutter speed/framerate ratio, isn't it useful to use shutter angle (set to180°) instead of shutter speed, so the ratio always sticks. (Under "SS / Gain Operation" in video menu) even when changing framerate??
    • Which metering mode works good for video underwater? Center weighted? Of course this only relevant when we use S or A video mode.
    • ​I use backbutton focus as described by Scubabob quite happily in my Nauticam housing as I´m used to it for photo. Is it generally best to just prefocus or does CAF or even tracking work well with fast moving animals like mantas etc..???
    • Magic Filter and custom WB with slate underwater or more success with Peterbkk´s method ??

    Thanks to anyone who finds the time to answer some of those questions or for any other GH4 video tips!!



  4. Hi Wetpixel members,


    due to system change to video, I sell my used Nauticam Housing NA-EM1 for the Olympus OM-D E-M1.

    The housing has never been flooded and is functional and waterproof.


    I have always rinsed and soaked it well, but it has done quite some diving and the rubber on the handles has some cosmetically damage (doesn't really matter when holding, see photo). The "Mode" dial has some damage on the rubber inside the housing (see photo). The "Mode dial"rubber can be fixed by yourself with some rubber and glue or you could order the part from Nauticam (if they sell parts) or send it for service. At the moment the dial doesn't get very good grip with the camera dial.


    Leak detector working.


    Otherwise all buttons are fine and its a great housing with back button focus possibility.


    All my photos on www.joergblessing.com have been taken with this housing and it was 100% reliable.


    Housing comes with Handles(see photo), Manual, Spare O-Ring (Main O ring), Nauticam Grease, Warranty form.

    No Port or vacuum.


    Price 900 Euro

    contact: blessingjoerg@gmail.com


    Housing is in Germany, can ship international, payment by transfer/ Pay Pal /direct pickup
