  1. Hello all, I'm trying to figure out what compact would work best for underwater video only. I've been looking at specs, reading reviews here and also wherever else I could find them, including for older RX100 models, watching side by side videos and whatever uw clips I could find, but unfortunately the mass of contradictory information found online is a little confusing. To summarise what I'm looking for: I'm only interested in a compact for shooting underwater video clips only, not stills. I'd shoot in 1080 and/or up to 4k, 24/30 to 60 fps - mainly with shallow ambient light in the tropics - and mainly wide angle general reef scences, with a red filter (primary), and less commonly with lights for macro/closeups (secondary) - I don't really care much for slow-motion. As a side-note I'm well aware of the limitations but have decided to focus on on compact-sized cameras for now, for specific practical reasons, - mainly to have something with manual controls and of reasonable size to work with for a couple of years before eventually upgrading to something bigger and more efficient like a dedicated camcorder or mirrorless. Main points of interest to me: • white balance for video in camera white balance (I'm partial to Lumix cameras on this), possibility to do a manual white balance, possibility to shoot in a flat profile to white balance in post (I don't think there is a compact capable of shooting raw video, but a flat/ flatter profile option would be very useful) • low light capacities for video how efficient is the video in lower light conditions - ie how will the camera handle darker days, going a little deeper, say with a red filter, what are the manual options • efficient video autofocus how good is the autofocus when shooting video - some cameras (LX series) have touch screen focus controls to set focus, but this is not really a practical option in a housing. How good is the camera at tracking in the sort of environment we shoot in underwater etc... • video image quality how defined is the video image, dynamic range etc - these compact cameras come with 2 sensor size options, four thirds for the LX100ii and 1" for the others, but it's not clear what really works best due to cropping, processing etc Not a major difference in apertures for these cameras, but there might be something to lookout for in lens quality • video stabilisation these compact cameras offer 2 types, lens and in camera - the RX100 seems to have a slight edge on this • battery life how does the battery hold when shooting video - I've heard that the RX series drains batteries very quickly when shooting 4k videos this is less of an issue on land, but underwater and in housing, for one hour dives shooting short clips, more so • overheating when shooting video? I've heard this is/was a major issues when shooting video on the Sony RX series. I shoot to edit 10 to 30 seconds clips, might go up to 1 minute for very specific reasons but not beyond, so a 5 minute cap like the RX100's 4k mode doesn't bother me for instance however the camera will indeed be used for underwater video only, in a housing, so reallynot very practical if it overheats easily --------- As mentioned in the title, I've narrowed down the search to 3 classic compacts: • Sony RX100 V or VI (or higher) • Lumix LX100 ii • Lumix LX 10 But I'm open to other recommendations for good video cameras of of similar size. I am quite partial to the Lumix series, have seen some good really good and helpful feedback here (thanks again), but have been reading contradicting information on video performance, especially when compared to the RX series. It doesn't really help that most of the video info found elsewhere online is focused on vloggers shooting in very different conditions from what we would find underwater, and that most commercial showreels focus on closeup scenes with a great light rig, which is not what i'll be using the camera for most of the time, and hardly mention white balancing Some info i've picked up along the way on these cameras: The older Panasonic LX10 seems to have focusing issues, and stabilisation is not great The Sony RX line (V, VI, VII....) is also very interesting, but I have heard of the overheating issues, which seems to be a common problem for other users shooting video. Since I'll be using this camera for video only, this does seem like a major problem. Not clear if this is major issue really fixed with the RX100 VII - found tests saying that it is, others that it isn't... Apparently in a studio, 40 minutes of continuous shooting is possible, but not sure what this would translate to inside a UW housing. RX100 battery life is also supposed to be quite dismal when shooting video, again not great underwater, and not sure what to make of its white balance options The Panasonic LX100 ii seems like a good alternative without the overheating issues and with better battery management, but what of autofocus, low light and image quality? It's also not clear how its bigger sensor really performs>>> ------- Beyond dry camera specs, it would be fantastic if people with real-life underwater video experience with these cameras could give opinions to help me make a more informed decision on which compact to get for shooting uw video clips. Thanks in advance for your help and pointers cheers ben
  2. I have a Sony RX100 Mark II. I am looking at picking up a used housing for it. I know that as of the Mark V (or possibly IV) the camera casing was modified and older housings will nor work for the Mark V. My question is, will housings for the original RX100 work for an RX100 Mark II? If so, it that across the board for all of the manufacturers? If not, are there some manufacturers that it will work for? I have found a Nauticam RX-100 housing but the seller and I do not live in the same area, so I don't want to buy it without first confirming. Thanks
  3. Went down to Antarctica in March (7 days on the peninsula). We made it down past the polar circle to 66˚ 33’ 47.5’S and were able to dive under an iceberg in Crystal Sound where a friendly and curious crabeater seal chose to spend some time with us under the ice. A pretty magical experience. A few photos embedded here.

Here's what's included: Nauticam NA-RX100ii housing Sony RX100ii 4 x clamps iDas tray TR03 with pistolgrip ball 2x mount screws Inon UWL 100 ultra wideangle wetlens Inon UCL 100 close up wetlens Free Meikon RX100 spare housing Below are pictures of what's included: Here's the breakdown and price. Shipping is excluded. If you're able to get to the south of the UK, I'm happy to sell it in person P.S. High quality pictures are available, but I'm limited to 1MB in this post. Thanks, sinetwo
  5. Anyone using a Sony RX 100 version 1 out there I need some help. Is there a way to set the live view so that it will show a bright image underwater and NOT the image based on the settings? For example if I set it at 1/125, f/5.6 and ISO 100 and am in any reasonable depth of water the screen is so dark I can't see what I am focusing on! Likewise, if shooting macro, even in shallow (10') water with the camera set at 1/125, f/11+ and ISO of 100 it is again so dark that I can't focus. There has to be a way to fix this because I've seen some great shots from a RX100 version 1. Huge thanks for replies. Cheers! J Walker

  10. Hi all, I am selling my RX100ii due to a DSLR upgrade in the near future. This is a great compact setup and makes snooting quite easy. I'm happy to post my pictures if you need to see what I managed to get in Bunaken and Tulamben, but I'm still processing them! Safe to say, this camera is great for both wide and macro with the paired wet lenses. I can provide more (detailed) pictures if required, but the post is limiting me to ca 1MB. I am based in the south of the UK, but I am of course happy to ship this anywhere. Everything's in excellent condition and I'll provide original boxes where possible - it is priced to sell at £1250.
  11. I am selling my SONY RX100 IV with lots of extra gear. Bought it originally to use it for underwater photography but I never found the time to get into this hobby. So I give it up. That's why the camera was almost never used (only couple times above water) and is in mint condition. No scratches, dents or anything. Even display has no scratches. The RX100 IV is a great high-end compact for underwater photography and video. The package includes: BATTERIES Two additional batteries with extra duo charger (in addition to the sony battery). Ideal for multiple dives. BAG Camerabag from Lowepro with splash water cover. The bag holds the camera and has an extra protected pocket for sd-cards as well as extra storage. CARDS - 2x 8 GB Micro SD-Karten mit Adapter (Transcend) - 1x 16 GB SD Karte (Transcend / SDHC UHS-I) - 1x 64 GB Micro-SD Karte (Lexar / 633x64GB UHS) Price for everything: € 649,00 Paypal preferred.

  12. I have an RX100 Mk1 and Nauticam housing for it. I'd like to get some Macro lenses and trying to figure out best options. So far I've narrowed down my plan to a dedicated +5-7 diopter lens and a more powerful +10-13 diopter lens, rather than stacking lower power lenses, because that seems to be a better approach. Given that, what lenses should I get? SAGA +5 and +10? Nauticam CMC-2 and CMC-1? Bluewater +7 and Kraken +12? SubSea +5 and +10? I have a Kraken wide angle lens (KRL-4) which I like (for the price), but I ultimately want to get whichever lens will be the best value for money. Ideally don't want to go too expensive on this (the Nauticam solution for example), unless I'm given solid reasons to do so. Thanks!
  13. I am in the process of upgrading to a different camera system. For sale is my barely used RX100 with Recsea housing. The following is offered for sale: Sony RX100 Mk1 with extra batteries $275.00 Recsea Housing $300.00 Sea&Sea YS-01 Strobes $250.00 each
  14. I'm very new to using an underwater strobe and don't really understand how a TTL system works using a fiber optic connection. I've been watching youtube videos explaining TTL in normal cameras connected via a hotshoe with an electronic connection and kind of understand that the camera fires a pre-flash to determine how much power it needs for the main flash. But how does this work with a simple optical trigger? If the camera uses its own pre-flash to trigger a pre-flash in the strobe and then provides corrects the main flash power, how is this information conveyed via the fiber optic from the camera to the strobe? To clarify, does the strobe vary its power according to the amount of light carried via the fiber optic cable? I have a Sony RX100M4 connected to an INON Z-240 (unfortunately there's no manual) via optic cable. Does anyone know if the RX100 uses a preflash when I use the fill flash? Should I put the Advanced Cancel Circuit Switch up or down on the Inon Z-240? Any help would be very appreciated.
  15. Hi all UW photographers out there, I want to buy a good compact, suitable housing and strobe/LED. To give you an idea about my UW photography experience: In the analog era I used to dive with a Minolta Alpha 8000i with (usually) a 100mm Macro lens in a Hugyfot housing, Subtronic 250Ws strobe w/built-in pilot lamp, plus a Nikonos V with 28 or 15mm lens mounted on top of the Hugyfot housing. With this setup I could shoot macro and wideangle on the same dive, which was really nice. Disadvantage of this setup was its bulk and weight. Particularly the huge and heavy Subtronic strobe was really difficult to handle when I had to fight currents, as I encountered them near Alor or some spots in the Andaman islands. So for the future I am looking for something much smaller and lighter, but with a similar level of versatility. Instead of one big and heavy strobes, I want to use 2 really small and lightweight ones. I have pretty much narrowed down my search to a Sony RX100 II*, but I am not sure what housing I should buy as there are so many. It should be - compact and lightweight - good for a diving depth of at least 60 meters, which I guess rules out the cheaper plastic housings - give me good control over the camera's settings - allow fiber optic connection of 2 UW strobes with TTL control - allow mounting of 2 strobe arms - allow mounting of wet lenses. I remember on a trip to Ambon I saw a guy with a housing who had 2 wet lenses mounted to the left and right of his port, one wide angle converter and one close-up lens. He could flip them in and out very quickly. This looked very useful to me. Do any of you out there know if any of the housings for the RX100 II offers such a mount option? * Or would you recommend another good compact? I chose the RX 100 II over the newer RX100 models because of its longer lens, 100 instead of the 70mm max offered by the newer versions.
  16. Hello, am looking for a sony rx100 (mki...m1) housing with full manual control Best Martim
  17. I have a Sony RX100 (Mk. 1) and I'm considering getting a housing for it. I like fantasea, recsea, and nauticam housings, so if you have one that you'd be interested in selling, I'd be interested. Shipping to Seattle, WA. Thanks!

  19. After spending 3 years in diving in Fiji it is time to move back home and be a land crab. I will not be diving often enough to justify keeping this nice setup any longer. Nauticam NA-RX100 (Mark I) Nauticam Flexitray with right handle and ball mounts Ikelite W20 Wideangle Wet lens Sony RX100 with OEM charger (MarkI) and Peli 1010 case The W20 was passed on to me from my wife and has some "waterspots" on the front lens element, nothing that shows up on the photos. Available for shipping in the US from August 5th or Sweden the following week. Or Fiji right now. 800 USD + Shipping
  20. I am selling my underwater photo equipment based on a Sony RX100 with a lot of accessories. The equipment is in a good condition and works without problems. I have used this equipment to take many great photos and - almost more importantly - superb videos. Since our second child will be born soon I will not be on diving holidays for some time and would therefore like to sell my equipment. It would be a pity having it just lying around. The exceptional thing about the equipment is the possibility to change lenses under water (called “wet lenses”). During a dive you can use the standard „flat“ port of the housing but still be able to change to macro or fish eye on the fly. This is ideal for holiday divers like myself since one usually does not do many specialized dives where one knows what kind of photos to expect in advance. Thanks to the strobe and the video light this set is perfectly suited for photos as well as videos. The Sony RX100 records videos with 1080p50 which means 50 full frames per second – thereby generating exceptionally nice and natural video images. Included is the following (I have also inserted the approximate current price for new equipment as a reference): Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 black (EUR 340,-) with second battery and external charger (EUR 55,-) Recsea Sony RX100 underwater housing (EUR 760,-) Video light: F.I.T. Pro Series LED 6500 Super Nova Video Light (EUR 990,-) Strobe: Sea & Sea YS-D1 Strobe (EUR 700,-) + fiber optic cable for triggering (EUR 40,-) UWL-04 Fisheye Lens (EUR 425,-) 2x Dyron +7 Diopter Macro Lens 77mm (each EUR 150,-) Tray with 2 handles (EUR 100,-) Nauticam double Lens Holder (EUR 100,-) 2x Triple Clamps, 4x Double Clamps (EUR 100,-) several necessary adapters (EUR 150,-) necessary buoyancy devices (ca. EUR 80,-) 2x double ball arms (EUR 60,-) Cetacea Quick-Release Cloth Coil Lanyard (EUR 30,-) Mounting possibility for separate (2nd) lamp (EUR 30,-) Replacement tray with 1 handle (EUR 40,-) The current price if buying this equipment new would thus be EUR 4.300,- Selling price : EUR 2.500,- I am based in Austria, Vienna and it is possible to inspect the equipment if you live close enough. Since I am selling this used equipment as a private seller I cannot give warranty of any kind.
  21. I am new to the underwater photography world (aside from GoPro's). I enjoy Macro shots and I am currently looking for a nice setup to start dedicating trips to underwater photography. I would prefer something that could be used on land as well. not too bulky. I have been interested in the Olympus E-M1 and the RX100 as they both fit my needs. obviously, the M1 has the ability to grow in the hobby a lot more than the RX. so that decision is based more on pricepoint. Would be looking for something within the next 2 months. Thank you for considering. Alex
