  1. Ok! Sorry i miswritten, i alredy did understood that the field of view is mainly affected by the focal length of the lens and not the camera. So, i think i will have to deal with the 16-50 mm + 6 inch dome port for now. And save some money for buying the 10-18mm later. (The fisheye adapter for 16mm sony lens seems to create a lot of distorsion.)
  2. Thank you very much guys for your answers, i am starting to understand some underwater photography basics. So the seafrogs dome port seems not to be an option. But is there a difference between an 4", 6", and 8" dome port? Apart from being twice more easy to make split images with a 8" than a 4"...? Also, i just checked on GoPro website what is the field of view / angles with the settings i used (medium) : Vertical FOV : 72,2° Horizontal FOV : 94,4° Diagonal FOV : 115,7° The angle of 83° you announced me is the diagonal FOV? So with the A6000 + 6" dome port i am still waaaaay more narrow than with my actual GoPro?
  3. Thank you guys for your advice. I agree with the fact that the Sony / Canon housings seems limited to a frequent freediving use. I have some newbie questions about my "wide angle" needs, (sorry for not asking google before...) : You say shooting humpbacks will need to go "wide angle". You mean that the 16mm (APS-C) of a Sony A6000 isn't wide enough? If i add a a dry dome to the Seafrogs housing, did that add a "wide angle coefficient" to my lens? or is this only for making split-images? Thanks
  4. Hi everyone, As a newbie in underwater photography i would appreciate your experience for helping me to choose my gear... What i do : I am more a freediver than a scubadiver (recently achieved my Open Water). I also love to go in the waves shooting surfers. What/where i shoot : I live in Reunion Island (indian ocean), i LOVE to shoot the humpback whales during the season, dolphins, turtles. I also like to shoot freedivers practicing. I am going from 0 to 20 meters (99% of the time). I am not into Macro stuff (maybe later...) I want to shoot good quality pictures (enough to get printed in a medium format), and also video : Full HD 60p (minimum). Gears i own : Actually i use a gopro Hero 5, a good action cam but i'm feeling limited when editing my pictures / videos. I own a Panasonic G7 with 3 different lenses but i don't find any (affordable) underwater housing for this one... So, with a 1000$ budget, i am hesitating between : * Sony A6000 + 16-50mm kit lens + SeaFrogs A6xxx salted line Case The housing looks great, i like the big glass (to make 50/50 pictures) and i would be able to upgrade up to A6500 * Sony RX100 mark III or mark IV + Sony or Meikon Housing Ability to upgrade to mark V or VI... but 1" sensor * Canon G7X mark II + Canon or Meikon Housing Seems a great compact cam... but still a 1" sensor... Thank you for helping me in this dilemna ^^ Cheers !
  5. Good morning evryone! I'm Basile from France, actually living in Reunion Island (Indian Ocean). I am a snorkeler / freediver / recently scubadiver (OpenWater). I currently own a Gopro Hero 5 and Panasonic G7. But i want an upgrade to get better shots of everything i can see in the indian ocean waters (humpback whales especially)...
