  1. Hi @Phil Rudin I am really interested to hear about your experience with the a7c housing once you've been able to test. The smaller housing (and cost) for the a7C are really intriguing. In the past, have you found the functionality of the smaller a6XX housings to be lacking from the full size a7X housings?
  2. I have been shooting on an A7RII for years in a Nauticam housing. Just got the A7SIII a few weeks ago and it is such a huge improvement in all aspects (form factor, menus, battery life, video specs). Ordering the A7SIII housing likely this week so will report back once I've gotten it wet! Ergonimics is the biggest factor for me when it comes to housings. The cheaper housings (I've only had personal experience with Ikelite) don't place the camera controls in a place that ergonomically is easy to use underwater. I use Nauticam housings and that is a big reason for the premium price. I use Sola Pro 15K. You'll see a lot of Keldan posts, but bang for buck just isn't there imo. For video, I would say no, but Panasonic makes some good video cameras as well, if you wanted to maybe try and get a full kit used for less money. Not a lot A7SIII used housings on the forums just yet with it being so new. Much better. I use a Xrite grey card to white balance and my color looks great.
  3. @dreifish I think you missed the entire beginning of my post. I stated the specs aren’t necessary imo. I’m not saying there’s other cameras with comparative specs for similar or less money. I’m saying there are other cameras that can achieve professional quality images for less money that aren’t focused trying to pad a spec sheet.
  4. I think the specs on this camera are “cool” from a pure technical perspective, but practically I don’t think it’s necessary, even for professional applications, and there are much better cameras for the money.
  5. Hi Everyone, I recently purchased Sola Pro 15K video lights at a pretty substantial discount making the lumen to dollar value far better than Keldan. Unfortunately, Light & Motion doesn't have any sort of cyan filter like Keldan has for their lights. Has anyone made their own cyan filters for video lights and if so, what are using for the filter? Thanks!
