  1. For video, the A1 is not really the camera to use underwater. The A7s3 is much better. The difference is not only in noise performance but in color "science" and wb as well.
  2. Have you thought of some kind of tripod solution? It also depends on what you are usually shooting but you usually film deep so that is why I think gh5s is a much better option for you.
  3. Davide get a used Gh5S. For video that mostly interests you is way better than the MK2 and almost on par with the A7S3.
  4. Well its subjective but in some scenes I prefer the color contrast created with just custom white balance on the lights. I ve just started using ambient filters but my first impression is that the image comes back a bit flat (no color contrast).
  5. I meant without filters on the lights to see the difference.
  6. Nice skin tones indeed! Too bad that usually divers are covered head to toe with black suits :)))))))
  7. Agreed! Thanks for the update Andrei! Also on the first pictures there is quite some noise in the blues? or it is just my idea? Where you using a red filter on the lens or just a CWB? Would be interesting to see the results with a red camera / blue lights filter combination but also when the WB is set on the color temperature of the lights without any filters.
  8. I have to agree with Interceptor on this one when it comes to testing. Any meaningful comparative result can only be made under the same conditions. That means you all the cameras with you on the same dive and you shoot on the exact same conditions otherwise is not objective. But I agree with dreifish that Sony has moved a lot in terms of white balancing underwater. That being said I am pretty happy with the GH5s and the result are comparable to an A7s3
  9. We are on the same boat here Thani, but it is highly unlikely. First you would need another recorder to capture BRAW the Ninja wont do it. Then Resolve doesn't look likely to support Prores Raw in the near future. FCPX is really an amateur software when it comes to color grading compared to Resolve and Resolve upgrades have made it a very capable all in one solution. For the time being the only solution seems to be doing the initial adjustment on the Prores RAW file to one of the apps that support it (FCPX or Scratch) and then export a Prores 4444 file to work with in Resolve. Not the most efficient solution but does the job.
  10. They most probably haven't tried to do it while carrying a scooter and 3 stages :))) But it's a good exercise to kill time in deco Davide
  11. The GH5s Prores raw update seems the most interesting to me. GH5mkII i don't see a real value for people doing mostly video to upgrade. Gh6 I would rather wait to see the final product and then decide whether it is worth it or not. At the moment I just ordered a Gh5s. Having a ninja V already made it a somehow easy (-er) decision. I am very curious to see the difference between the GH5 mkI and GH5s shooting the same scene the same day initially on Panasonic all-i codec.
  12. Slightly off topic but what f-stop did you use on these shots? Many of them are really soft on the corners and trying to understand whether it is that the lights are not strong enough and so you had to open the aperture or it is camera/lens/dome issue. Thanks
