  1. @John Doe II Thanks! Yes they were shot in C-log and graded in Premiere, not too heavily but obviously boosting contrast quite a bit and saturating specific colors a bit more...
  2. Here are a few more R5 sample videos, shot with the same settings as I had in the previous post. This time I used the EF 8-15mm fisheye lens. Depth this time was in the 55-60 ft range, sunny conditions.
  3. Just did my first dive with the R5 and thought I'd share some sample footage (youtube links below). It's nothing special, just a few different scenes to give you a feel for the image quality. I have the camera in a Nauticam housing with ZEN 230mm dome, using the RF 15-35mm. Settings on all these videos: 4K 30p, HQ mode (oversampled from 8K), ALL-I compression, Canon Log on. Files were edited in Premiere and exported in maximum render quality. Footage was shot on St. Eustatius in the Dutch Caribbean. All videos are shot at around 70 ft depth, conditions were not great: it was an overcast day, still early in the morning, so not a lot of light or colors available at that depth. No artificial light was used, just ambient light. I used a white slate to manually white balance the footage, which is a bit of a hassle on the R5. Taking into account these low-light conditions, I think the camera produced some fantastic video. I am sure though the footage will be much more vibrant in shallow water with more sunlight. Interested to hear what you think. Happy to upload more footage with different settings next week if anyone is interested.

  10. The 12-100mm lens is sold, the rest is still available. I'm also willing to sell in parts. Email me at ruudstelten@gmail.com for pics.
  11. I have a complete Olympus EM1-mark 2 Nauticam set for sale, including the following items: - Nauticam NA-EM1II housing, including vacuum valve and lanyard ($1,300) - EM1II body and flash ($1,000) - ZEN 170mm glass dome port ($600) - Olympus 8mm fisheye PRO lens (works with the ZEN dome port) ($750) - Nauticam 7" acrylic dome port ($400) - Panasonic Leica 8-18mm wide angle zoom lens (works with the Nauticam dome port) ($750) - Zoom gear for the 8-18mm lens ($200) - Olympus 12-100mm IS PRO lens, great all-round for topside use ($750) - Spare o-rings for the housing, vacuum valve, and ports (free) Total for the entire set is $5,750, including shipping within the US. I will also include a circular polarizer filter for the 8-18mm. I am looking to sell it as a complete set. All the gear is in great condition, always taken care of very well, rinsed extensively after every dive. It has never been flooded, the vacuum system works perfectly. There are no scratches on the domes or lenses. The only thing worth mentioning is that the ZEN dome has some hard water stains on it, but this does not affect image quality at all, it's just a cosmetic issue. If you are interested, I can provide pictures of everything, just send me an email at ruudstelten@gmail.com
  12. No problem, let me know if you have any more questions!
  13. Hi, it depends on what you use them for. A strobe emits a short but very powerful burst of light, usually much stronger than a video light. That said, video lights can certainly be used for photography as well. I have done a lot of macro photography with these lights, and even wide angle works. For wide angle it is hard to use these lights when the conditions are bright as video lights can't easily compete with the ambient light from the sun. But if you look at the attached picture, you can see it is certainly possible and can deliver great results! I took this photo with two SOLA 3800 lights at full intensity, using a fisheye lens on my EM1II. It works very well inside the cenote here because there is no ambient light to compete with, and because the lights have a wide beam angle of 110 degrees.
