I've been reading some posts online recommending that for "on land" shooting, the Hero 7 sharpness be set to "low" for more natural looking footage. I haven't gotten to use mine in the water yet but I'm wondering if settings of "medium" or "high" might yield better results underwater where the overall environment is less sharp than on land due to less that gin-clear visibility. Any recommendations for WB of "auto" or "native" (or some other choice) would be helpful, too. I'd be free diving with the camera a depths of 30ft of less. Thanks!
Aloha, I bought these for one project (shooting a wedding from inside a shark tank), tested them in my pool, shoot cancelled and now they just sit. I feel like I'll regret this, but want to move the money into other gear. 2 Water Wizard housings: $260 each. $500 for both. They are $320 new right now at Backscatter. 2 Pocketwizard Plus 3's: $90 each. $160 for both. They are $125 new right now at BH. 2 15' Ikelite extension cables: $70 each. $120 for both. They are $99 right now at Backscatter. Or take all of it for $700. Shipping included to the US, can work out international. If you aren't familiar, these are used to wirelessly trigger strobes from in the water and they work really well. Great solution if you have the need: http://aquatica.ca/en/tlc_water_wizard.html Thanks, please let me know if you have any questions! Lyle
SPL A-Series 1D MK IV / III Water Housing (fits 5D MK III - see text) Very good condition. Works perfectly. Only used a couple of times. Ports have no scratches that might show up on images. O-rings in very good condition. The housing seals tightly. No rust. Pistol grip works great. It is also very easy to manipulate ISO, Shutter Speed, and F-stop. A-Series housings are made of light-weight aluminum and belong to the most durable housings on the market. The removable pistol grip (included) has a two stage trigger similar to the shutter buttons of most DSLRs. The housing has an option to add a detachable flash housing (not included). Included: SPL A-Series Canon 1D Mark IV water housing SPL Front Plate SPL Fisheye Port incl. neoprene port cover (fits lenses like Tokina 10-17, Sigma 15 2.8) SPL Short Flat Port incl. neoprene port cover (fits lenses like Canon 50mm 1.8) SPL Pistol Grip SPL wing nuts Rubber seal lubricant Spare screws Please contact me in case you are unsure if your lens will fit the ports. The housing is designed to fit a Canon 1D MK4 (camera not included). The 1D MK3 also fits the housing. The following buttons are accessible when a 1D MK4 /MK3 is placed inside the housing: Shutter Button Shutter Speed Dial +/- Button (Exposure Compensation / Aperture Button) ISO Button Quick Control Dial SET Button inside Quick Control Dial I used a Canon 5D MKIII inside the housing by adding some removeable padding. The position of most buttons on the 1D MKIV and 5D III is very similar when you add approx. 40mm of padding to the bottom of the 5D MK III. Check www.camerasize.com for more details. The padding was removed for the photos. However, if you are planning on using a 5D MKIII inside the housing, please let me know and I'll add the padding back to the housing for free before packing it for shipping. With the padding, I was able to access the following buttons: Shutter Button Shutter Speed Dial WB (White Balance) Button AF Drive Button ISO Button I haven't tested it out, but I can imagine that with some adjustments to the padding a 5D MKIV or 5D MKII might also work.

NA-EM1 Leakage with Vacuum system
Rugani posted a topic in Photography Gear and TechniqueHello! Yesterday I had a dive in lake Attersee, Austria with my faithful Nauticam NA-EM1. I set the ystem under vacuum 4 hours Prior the dive. It stayed green all the time. I startetd the dive and hat a good time. After about 20 minutes I started to descending. At about 120 feet (40 Meter) suddenly the light turned red and the System was beeping. I informed my group and checked everthing. Ther was water inside the housing. We aborted the dive. Back at about 6 feet (2 Meter) there was coming air out of the housing. Outside the water i opened the housing, a lot of water was coming out. I checked everything, couldn´t find any damage or dirt on the o-rings. Does anybody have an idea what happened in the deep? Did anybody have a similiar Problem with his nauticam housing? Is the vacuum System here a good decision. I often had the Problem, that below 150 feet (50 Meter) the camera did not react right. It looked like the springs for some buttons where to weak. The depth Rating for the housing is 300 feet. Thanks in advance Armin
