  1. Hi fellows, Iā€™d like to share with you my test for the GH5s. The primary focus was to test how would the camera produce colors with just ambient light. The secondary was to test the autofocus in challenging conditions. The clips were taking around 25m in bad visibility and with a lot of particles. Thirdly, I wanted to test the low light performance. The amount of light in summer at 25m in our seas is relatively dim. And it presented a good test for the light sensitivity of the camera which I sat to variable with a maximum of iso 6400. This is a result of two dives on the same day. My rig still needs balancing. I am quite pleased with the camera ability to produce such good color rendition when white balanced on a gray card with a red filter. My gray gloves which are a shade darker than the 10% gray card produced more pleasing colors and needed little or no color grading in post beside exposure adjustment. The autofocus, despite the challenging conditions with bad visibility and numerous particles, was really good and definitely much more better than my aging eyes it is fair to say that it can do the job more than 90% of the times. The low light performance was good which resulted in better exposure, color production and autofocus. I know many would prefer the GH5 over the GH5s due to the lack of IBIS. Honestly, I have not tried IBIS underwater and I have read mixed reviews. However, the color rendition of this camera in ambient light is beyond the capability of the GH5 and overweighs the IBIS in my opinion. The setup: Nuaticam housing with 7ā€ dome, Dive and See 5.5 monitor, Panasonic 12-35mm 2.8 version ii, Red filter, Standard picture profile, Variable ISO with maximum 6400 https://youtu.be/X1fKNylMj74
  2. Here is a link to a short video I scrambled from the test footage I shot with Panasonic LX15 on my liveaboard trip to Sudan in may. All is shot with ambient light, no additional lighting, all color corrected and edited in Hitfilm Express. I was mainly doing photos, as it were literally my first dives with the new rig, hence the quality of the video is mediocre, just to test the capabilities of the camera. Enjoy
  3. I am a professional photographer selling my D800/Sea&Sea underwater setup because I recently upgraded to the D850. The setup has been amazing for the past few years and would be a great setup for anyone looking to shoot full frame underwater. It has never flooded and has been used mostly (>95% of the time) in Florida's freshwater springs. Although used, it has been treated with care. There are minor scratches on the dome that do not affect the photos. All you need to get underwater is a lens (I've used a Sigma 15mm fisheye or Nikon 16-35mm). Almost everything on my website was shot with this camera. What's included: D800 camera body + battery MDX800 housing with Nikonos bulkhead connector Dome Port 240 (including neoprene cover & rear port cover) 2 40mm extension rings 16-35mm zoom gear $3200 for everything. Ships from Florida, USA.
  4. 1 - Tamron 10-24mm F/3.5-6.3 Di-II VC HLD Wide Angle Zoom Lens for Nikon APS-C Digital SLR Cameras $300 1- Sigma 8-16mm f/4.5-5.6 DC HSM FLD AF ultrawide (weitwinkel) Zoom Lens for APS-C sized Nikon Digital DSLR Camera - $425 1 ā€“ Sigma 8mm F3.5 EX DG Circular Fisheye - $425 1- 77mm Circular Polarizer (works on 10-24 for "land" photos)
  5. For sale, a tray designed for GoPro cameras with a video light (3 levels) Backscatter tray with loc-line arm X-Adventurer 900W torch light Battery for the dive light Red filter for the dive light (for you not to scare crabs and shrimps) Lanyard for the tray or the dive light Charger for the battery (US) Everything is good condition, it was still used recently. Shipping at buyer's costs. Visible in Paris area (Boulogne-Billancourt). Price: 100 EUR or nearest offer
  6. Now I have gotten my new setup (Nauticam and Fujifilm XT-2), I need to sell parts of my current setup. I'm selling a fully equipped and working configuration built around the Olympus EPL-7 camera with the PTWC-01 wide angle wet lens from Olympus. I bought it in Kuala Lumpur in November 2016 at Divers Den, a shop specialized in underwater photography. I will provide all the receipts. The housing has been always very carefully maintained, never been flooded and without scratch. I have dived with it 110 times or so. The package contains the following elements: Olympus EPL-7 Silver Camera Body (4846 clicks) Olympus M.Zuiko ED 14-42mm F3.5-5.6 EZ Olympus Genuine Battery Charger + 2nd Battery BLS-50 Olympus Underwater Housing (PT-EP12) + Olympus Lubricant Olympus Anti-Reflection Ring for 14-42mm EZ (POSR-EP07) Deepshots 3D Printed Zoom Gear for 14-42mm EZ SanDisk Extreme 32GB SD Card Olympus Underwater Wide-Angle Converter (PTWC-01) The Olympus Wide Angle Converter (PTWC-01) fits the housing and converts the field of view to 100 degrees underwater. The lens is good condition with normal wear and tear (a few tiny scratches) but it does not affect in any ways the image quality. I can share some recent wide-angle shots and some macro stuff done with the CMC-1 from Nauticam (which I'm not selling by the way). This underwater photography gear is visible in Paris area (Boulogne-Billancourt) and I can ship it to buyer's costs. Price: 900 EUR (or nearest offer)
  7. Hi, I'm selling my Nauticam NA-GH3 housing in excellent working condition. I no longer have any need for it. I am located in Canada but am willing to ship. Looking to sell this housing for $1,500 USD or best offer. If you have any questions or would like to see more pictures, please send me a DM. Thanks!
  8. Hi, I am selling a Nauticam 6" wide angle port for Lumix G Vario 7-14mm F4 ASPH. It has only ever been used once. Regular price is ~$500 http://reefphoto.com...roducts_id=5325 Looking to sell for ~$250. Contact for photos or more information - Thanks!
  9. I was wondering if there were any Action/Lifestyle Photographers that would be willing to share some of their experience regarding their workflow, safety and challenges they might have encountered. What type of makeup is do you suggest for underwater shots and 50-50 shots? How are you controlling and triggering your lighting? Any insight would be appreciated.

  12. I'm struggling with video focus on the Canon 7D which will be make or break for me keeping or selling it off. I shot this video of a calamari squid hunting yesterday: As you can see, whenever the squid moves closer to the camera, the footage goes out of focus. I switch regularly back and forward between video and stills, mainly filming marine animal behaviours which can be unpredictable. Are there any not-overly complicated solutions to this or is my 7D about to have a 'For Sale' sticker put on it? Thank you in advance for your advice.
  13. Hi there, I'm selling my Underwater Wide Conversion lens from Olympus as I'm getting the WWL-1 from Nauticam. It provides a 100 degree underwater angle of view (Magnification: 0.6x). It screws directly to the front of the PT housing. It is advised to use Silicone Grease for PT Series Underwater Housings on the lens threads prior to attaching. I bought in 2016 in Malaysia, used on two housings (PT-056 for Olympus Tough 4 and PT-EP12 for Olympus Pen 7). I will give as well the step-down ring 67mm to 52mm. I have attached a few photos taken in November last year (Sipadan). Everything is good condition, it was still used recently. A few micro-scratches on the front lens which do not affect the quality of the images. I have modified the caps so it can be used with a lanyard. Original invoice provided but not the box. Shipping at buyer's costs. Visible in Paris area in France (Boulogne-Billancourt). Price: 300 EUR + shipping costs (if any) Cheers, G.
  14. Hello again, I'd like to conduct an informal poll on the White Balance settings you folks like to use underwater with your Sonys. I did a lot of underwater photography back in the days of film, but have not yet shot any digital underwater, and figuring out white balance settings is a major concern for me right now. I'm headed to Mexico next week with my a6300, but I think all the Sony Full Frame and Mirrorless bodies from the last couple of years are fairly similar in terms of their white balance characteristics. I've read so many posts on this WB topic recently that my brain is just fried. Some say you should take a custom white balance every 10-15 feet, some say if you do this the Sonys throw an error because the reading will be outside the 9900k color temp limit, some say just set the WB manually to 9900k and add a +7 M tint, some say Underwater Auto White Balance works well enough, some say just Auto White Balance is fine, one guy posted PDFs of A4 size color swatches he made that simulate UW color cast, and that you can print those out and take a custom WB reading from them in daylight. Wow, so many freaking choices! Last time I took photos underwater the only 'White Balance' options were either Kodachrome or Fuji . I'll be shooting video as well as stills, using Sony's 10-18mm wide angle zoom. I'll be diving on the Pacific side of Mexico. I expect visibility of only about 30-40 feet. For video I have a Kraken Hydra 2000 lumen video light mounted on the cold shoe of my Nauticam housing on a 4 inch flexi arm. My plan was to use Sony's Underwater White Balance for video, because I'm afraid if I set a custom White Balance for the ambient light, anything illuminated by the light will be too red. Is this a valid concern? But I've read that Auto WB can change the color cast of your video abruptly and is best avoided. I think I'm going to shoot XACV-S in 4k, but I'd rather not have to do any color grading in post. What settings do you folks like to use for WB for UW video with a light? For stills I'll have two Sea & Sea YS-D2 strobes with diffusers. My plan for stills is to use Sony's Flash White Balance setting. That should give me good color for whatever is illuminated by the flash, but I'm not sure how the background water column is going to look. I will be shooting RAW, so I'm thinking I'll have enough latitude to adjust the background water to a color that is pleasing if need be. Does this sound like a good plan? What WB setting do you like to use on your Sony for Wide Angle stills with strobes? One other quick question - do you think I'll need to kill the video light prior to shooting a still? I'm concerned it could cast unwanted shadows or add a color cast, but maybe the strobe will be so much brighter it won't matter. Thanks for all your help guys and gals!
  15. Hey everyone! Like many, I was bitten by the dive bug and being an avid photographer, purchased an underwater camera housing system in 2014 thinking I would dive ten times a year and take a whole heap of awesome photos/video. Alas, real life has a way of bringing you back to reality and finances have dictated that the gear must go to free up funds, having been used on one dive in Canada. I currently live in Ireland but was home recently to take photos (photo files are too big so please contact me via email to see the photos!) of the gear and if there is interest, I will be back in Canada in july for a wedding and could arrange a paypal transaction and ship the gear then. I bought the gear for approx $7200.00 CAD + tax and am looking to sell it for $6500.00 CAD. It is all packed and ready to ship too! This is an unreal deal tbh as some of the gear has never been used and everything else has literally seen water once and not even salt water, for that matter. Unfortunately, given my current location, I cannot take further photos but would be happy to answer any questions you might have to the best of my ability. Thanks and hope I can find the gear a good home with someone who will put it to good use! Cheers, Adam
  16. I have two used Ikelite DS161 Strobes/Video lights up for sale. I purchased both of them used last spring 2017 from Ebay. I used them both less than 10 times (probably more like 4 times) and realized that they are just too unwieldy for instream photography. I recently bought a Retra strobe and I think that the size is a bit more what I am looking for. So I am now trying to offload these two Ikelites. One of the strobes has some cosmetic wear from the previous owner (see pics). The other strobe is in great shape. Both strobes are fully functional and operate well. Both have battery packs, sync port covers (metals screw caps) and both have the 1" ball adapters. However, I only have one diffuser and one charger. Looking for $1400 for the pair - shipping and PayPal fees included. PayPal or local pickup in Seattle, WA. For feedback - Ebay: iakona808 FredMiranda: Jsatoshi My website is JasonSChing.com -Shoot me a message on any of these if you'd like me to confirm. Thanks for looking! -Jason

  19. My new video of small critters from the Lembeh Strait and Anilao. Filmed with a Panasonic GH4 in a Nauticam NA-GH4 housing with either 2 x Keldan Luna 4X lights or 2 x FIX Neo 1000 DX SW II lights. I used an Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ lens and a Olympus M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 macro lens. On some shots I used a Nauticam Compact Macro Converter CMC-1. Xit404 tripod. The UHD footage was downsampled to 1920x1080, allowing me to crop and zoom. Only the wonderpus shot was stabilized. All feedback is welcome. Particularly, are there any weak shots, or uncomfortable edits? I may submit a refined version to a festival or two.
  20. I have a used, but in great condition, GATES housing for a Panasonic HVX200 video camera. Is anyone interested? Name your price please: scott@scottsmithmedia.com or 310-462-7081 I also have a number of HVX200 accessories as well. Thank you!
  21. I'm selling my Ikelite 8" modular dome + 2.75" lens extension (Ikelite product numbers 5510.45 and 5510.11). Used only a few times (literally, 3 or 4). Bought it without checking if my Nikkor 14-24mm would fit, which it doesn't, and after borrowing a 15mm prime from a friend I actually figured out that I don't like wide angle photography underwater so much. In mint condition. Comes with protective hood. Manufacturer's image of said product: http://www.ikelite.com/images/products/accessories/5511.1/5511.1-dome-kit-a.jpg I'm thinking in a price range of P20,000 or EUR400 (RRP for this set is US$550 / EUR525). I'm on Camiguin, Philipppines. Shipping costs for the buyer, within the Philippines it will be shipped insured via LBC. Price depending on destination. Since regular postal services are not very reliable here, and other services virtually unaffordable, I don't want/dare to ship this outside the Philippines. Payment via COD (in Philippines) or IBAN/SEPA transfer to my European account. Drop me a message if interested.
  22. Hi, I'm thinking about enrolling myself into my first underwater photo workshop (instructor well known pro underwater photographer). I would consider myself intermediate level underwater photographer but quite knowledgable about above water photography but not professional. I would like to take my underwater photography to the next level of creativity. How useful have non-beginner people found these workshops? Worth the money? Have you've discovered things you wouldn't have thought of by just reading books/forums? Thanks for your opinions.

  24. Hi Everyone, I wanted to share my latest short film. This is a followup to my award winning 'Stay With Us' film. The story will have a total of three parts. This is a film you will want to have the volume up, with some bass if possible, and watch in full HD. It was shot with the Canon 1dx with 100mm macro lens. Curious to know what feedback you all have. I hope you enjoy it. -Dustin
  25. The "Poseidon" was serve as Dive boat for almost 10 years before was left to its fate 20 years ago. The video was filmed with my underwater platform that you see at the end of the video.
