  1. Hello - Former TG5 shooter getting everything ready to "take the next step" and move to a mirrorless rig. After a few weeks of research and video watching, I am pretty set on the GH5 w/ a Nauticam housing. One potential issue that is dissuading me is the lack of TTL support on the Nauticam housing. I know I will eventually want to control my strobes manually down the line, but TTL seems like a wonderful option for the first few weeks/months as I learn how to use this new camera. I have come across this converter kit. Curious if anyone has any experience with these products. Do they work well? In theory, with this purchase I would NOT need flash triggers, correct? Would I be able to use my existing strobes (YS D2) and fiber optic cables? Any help or insight would be GREATLY appreciated!
  2. Please help me with some of the lens port options for video the GH5 in Nauticam housing and maybe why you chose this option. Did you start with this option? What are some of the limitations of your old lens and why you switched? What are your favorite go to settings underwater for video? My current system Is the GH5 in Nauticam Housing. I like to shoot as wide as possible so i can get as close to my subject as possible. Reef, turtles, schooling fish. I'm told the less water between your subject the better the image. I'm told for video i should keep a shutter speed twice that of the frames per second. I like to shoot in 60fps with the GH5 for the most part as i like the option to slow footage down. I have the Olympus M. Zuiko Pro f 2.8 7-14mm - (14mm-28mm equivilant) Why I chose twh -- Why I chose over the Panasonic 7-14 - It is constant aperture, and i was told it is the best in image quality and will perform better in any given f-stop for low light and zooming in the 7-14mm my f-stop will not change? Since I never shoot video anywhere close to 2.8 should i care? Cons of this lens is it is Big, Heavy and expensive. Also does not have image stabilization. It has a lens hood that does not come off. This means that in order for the housing to fit the Nauticam housing i need 180mm glass dome (expensive) a spacer (expensive). That said, I chose it over the Panisonic version as basically I was told this is the best lens for image quality over the Panisonic 7-14mm and if i get everything right for settings and the reef life lets me get close enough i can get wonderful images. Its figuring the settings and the white balance that can be the challenge. I have the option to zoom to 14mm (28mm equivalent) although that is not much of a zoom i find and when i do see something a little bit smaller and i want to focus in on that subject there is not much to work with in my opinion. I started shooting at about F8 and still found my edges soft. What i have found is I have to shoot at about f11 mostly to avoid the distortion and make my corners more square. I leave my shutter at 179d as I shoot at 60fps then just play with Iso and the f-stop. I manual white balance on my hand or some grey coral and the sand if nothing else is available. I have auto focus turned off and use focus assist with back button focus mapped to the AF lock button FOR MACRO .... I went with the Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f-2.8 Macro lens with The N85 macro-port 65 for this lens. Again with the Olympus lens was told is better image quality. This one i found a little confusing especially the dial on the side . I see that i currently have it on the 0.19-0.4 setting. It has been almost a year since i have shot with this. I assumed i would shoot at 1:1 not sure why i had it on this setting. can you guys help me out with how and what subject your shooting with this lens? I am thinking about other lenses port options. Specifically to maybe address the sharp square corner issue and/or the fact that you're stuck shooting really wide angle or really small stuff. I knew that going in but there is some other lenses out there and for video what do you guys have to say?
  3. Hi, so I have a gh5 in nauticam housing and the only lens i have is the 14 to 42 ps with wwl-1 which i use mostly for video. However I'd like to explore diff options for photography. I'm having trouble finding info since most people are using it for video. Any recs on what you are using for wide angle and macro. My interest is always more fish portraits and I'd like to get into cfwa or just to learn about the diff lens options. Thanks
  4. Lately, I've been using 2 Gates GT14 14k lumen lights + 2 ScubaLamp V6K 12000 lumens lights (and I wish I had about twice that much light, still). Needless to say, the lights are quite heavy. Given that the Nauticam GH5 housing is already negative, that means significant additional floatation is needed to get the whole rig neutral (which is how I like to keep it for wide angle video.) Here's what I've come up with: Unfortunately, it's very heavy on land, and the arms have a tendency to swing loose even with the clamps tightened down all the way, which makes transporting it a hastle. In the water, it's pretty good, but still has a lot of mass. We need some lighter LED lights!
  5. Hi all, Though I share my last diving video clip on Weh island, Indonesia. It was my first trip using the GH5 after about 3 years with GH4. Weh Island is at the Andaman Sea, northwest of Sumatra. A small volcanic island at north western border of Indonesia. The diving part was beautiful, viz was good during our time diving there and there is plenty of interesting diving spot to go from ship wreck to underwater volcano. I use GH5 with Nauticam housing, with 2x 6000 lumens BigBlue dive light. I use mostly the Lumix 8mm fish eye with nauticam acrylic dome and some shoot with Lumix 7-14 and Nauti 180cm glass dome. The part I like to most about the GH5 is, apart from its IS, its captured of WB is to my liking. I edit the clip with Premiere and use its Lumetri preset effect. Drop the Cinespace 50 and voala! Love the blue its generate for uw scene. Anyhow, I'm no pro, I shoot just for a hobby to capture holiday diving memories. Comments and/or critics are always welcome and I do suggest you visit Weh island Indonesia or put it on your diving bucket list. Regards, Bona
  6. Does anyone use the Panasonic f/1,7 15mm lens with a Nauticam Housing on their GH5 rig? Does it work ok with the WWL-1 wide angle adaptor or would there be vignetting? Nauticams port charts don't support using the Panasonic f/1.7 15mm with any port but I recall someone saying it worked well. Would you use the Nauticam N85 Power Zoom Macro Port 29, and would you be able to put the WWL-1 on that port without any vignetting or other issues? -Roger Uzun
  7. Back in September I concluded a liveaboard tip to the Banda Sea with a stop over in Ambon before flying home. I got in 12 dives in 3 days with Critterjunkies by divebluemotion. The dive shop is pretty basic and located on the shores of Laha. And, like most parts of Indonesia, sanitation is not at levels we experience in the west. So, the rocky beach was covered in plastic as well areas beneath the water. However, many magical creatures make this area home. The water was warm enough for comfort in a 5mm wetsuit for long muck dives and viz varied from 30-50 feet, although on the last day, after a harsh rain, viz deteriorated to 2-3 feet! The top of the critter list was the psychedelic frogfish (PFF) and I didn't expect to actually see one. But, our guide had found one several days earlier and we got to see one on the second dive! There is competition amongst the dive guides and operators to find PFFs so when went to look for the PFF, our guide had one diver visit with the PFF while the others were off at a distance so other guides or boats couldn't figure out the location. It was like a secret mission. However, the PFF was in shallow water and the surge and particulate made for really difficult shooting conditions. Here's a video of what I encountered in 12 dives. Comments and critiques welcome.
  8. Hi all, I've got offered for a good price for an "old" SmallHD DP4 monitor with Nauticam housing. Plan to use them with my GH5 also in Nauticam housing. I've owned the 45 deg Nauticam viewfinder for the housing already, do you think the extra monitor worth it? I shoot both WA and macro BTW, with and without video lights. Any inputs are appreciated in advance. Thanks, Bona
  9. I have been playing for a few days with the GH5 and I have noticed that in addition to the obvious metering, histograms and zebra pattern the camera has a live waveform monitor. Does anyone use it? Do people with external recorders or monitors use it? I am using HLG to shoot HDR but this applies equally to log or standard shooting

  11. Hi all Anyone know if a HDMI recorder for 4K 60fps exists in a small and cheap packages? No monitor is required. The Atomos shugon records well, but is very expensive and so are the housings. It must be possible to get just a recorder, no monitor, fair battery life, low price, that will record as soon as it get a record signal from maybe the GH5 or other cameras. I imaging there would be a lot of us that would like to find such one. Any ideas?
  12. Hi, to illustrate the GH5 performance again, some of you might be interested. recorded in Cine-D, mWB on a grey card, focus locked, color grading in Premiere Pro, the most shots are with the Pana 7-14, a few with Oly 12-50 lense. In the shot with the schooling sweetlips you can see the blurred edges due the small aperture i used. With my new optical dive mask i can prevent this in the future. https://youtu.be/3Te5ALIcaUY or https://vimeo.com/249291789 Kind regards, Alex.
  13. Hello All, I’m switching from a Sony A7 to a GH5/S, and I need a recommendation for a dome. I have the Nauticam housing for the A7 which I use with the Nikonos 15mm lens so I didn’t needed a dome. I’m getting the Nauticam housing for the GH5, I’m searching for a dome for the Pana 12-35mm II and Pana 8-18mm lenses. Nauticam option is the 180mm dome ref. 18809, Zen option seems to be the 170mm dome ref. zen-dp170-n85II. Price is the same for both domes. I would be tempted by the Zen model because it’s smaller (slightly?). With your experience which one would you recommend? Thanks! Claude
  14. A couple of Nauticam dealers now list part numer 17713 for NA-GH5. Could be here pretty fast it seems. I.e. http://scubapix.com/underwater-housings/17713-na-gh5-housing-for-panasonic-lumix-gh5-camera/ Espen
  15. Nimar beat Nauticam to the announcement this time... However the Nimar polycarbonate housing will not support all buttons. Its quite a few buttons missing in fact. http://www.nimar.it/en/panasonic/381-housing-panasonic-dc-gh5-body.html
