  2. Thanks to one of our guests this trip, I had the opportunity to do a comparison test between three 10000+ lumen video lights, the Gates GT14, Scubalamp V6K and Jaunt G18 Plus. First, let’s take a look at the advertised specifications (I’ve included the V6K Pro and the Jaunt G18 models and some other 10k+ lights for comparison purposes): A side by side size comparison (the GT14 has a home-made float attached, but is still negative): Comparison of the chargers, from left to right, GT14, V6K and G18 Plus. The Jaunt light has the smallest charger, a nice perk for travel. Field Testing - Beam Coverage, Power, Color Temperature, Run Time I did a simple underwater test in a small cavern at 35m to limit ambient light influence. I mounted 2 GT14s on either side of my camera, one paired with a Jaunt G18 Plus and the other paired with the Scubalamp V6K to compare beam angle coverage, light strength, and color temperature. I used the GH5 with the Panasonic 14-42 II and Nauticam WWL-1 combination and simply took a picture in 4:3 aspect ratio at 14mm, which should produce about a 130 degree diagonal field of view. I then tried to position each light to illuminate the center of the frame to judge difference in beam spread and power. All shots were taken in aperture priority mode at F5.6 with ISO fixed at 200 and AWB. Basically, I wanted to see what the camera would chose for the shutter speed as a measurement of the light strength and for white balance as a measurement of color temperature. Here are the side by side results: Gates GT14 (left) at F5.6, ISO 200, 1/30s vs Scubalamp V6K (right) at F5.6, ISO 200, 1/15s The wider beam coverage of the V6K is noticeable, and one light is enough to fully cover the 130 degree diagonal image plane. However, this comes at a cost, as the V6K is a full stop less bright than the GT14. As advertised, the color temperature is also a little cooler on the V6K, registering as 4450K on the V6K vs 4200K on the GT14 Gates GT14 (left) at F5.6, ISO 200, 1/25s vs Jaunt G18 Plus (right) at F5.6, ISO 200, 1/25s. In this case, the GH5 chose identical auto exposures and very similar auto white balance for both lights. Beam coverage appears very similar, as does light strength and color temperature (GT14: 4200k, G18 Plus: 4150k). I’d say they’re more or less interchangeable. I also tested drain times at full power and found that the V6K and G18 Plus performed exactly as advertised at 30 minutes and 52 minutes respectively. My GT14 battery has gone through maybe 100 cycles already, but still managed 37 minutes (7 longer than advertised). Additional considerations The V6K has a single (small) push button to operate. Holding the button for a few seconds activates the light. Then, one press gives you full power, another press 50% power, and a third press turns the light off. From full power, pressing and holding the button will reduce the light power in 10% increments. I don’t really like this button as it sometimes is unresponsive. The G18 Plus also has a single push button to operate, but it is larger and more responsive. A single push will turn on the light to Mode 1, which by default is full power. A second push goes to mode 2, which by default is 50%. A third push goes to off. Holding the button in either mode will reduce (and then increase) light intensity by 10% increments, so in practice you can program each mode to retain the power setting you prefer. This is great! The GT14 is operated using a 6 position locking turn-wheel that is both fast to use and reliable. However, aside from a 400 lumen scouting mode, all the other settings range between 7000 lumens and 14000 lumens, so there’s no way to turn the light to less than 50% power without factory reprogramming. Gates offers an optional accessory for the G14s with 2 52mm filter threads for adding blue filters, for example. Similarly, Scubalamp offers an optional push-on blue filter for the V6Ks for $78 retail. I don’t believe Jaunt offers any blue filter options. With the GT14 and G18 Plus, you can swap batteries while leaving the light attached to your camera via the ball joint. With the V6K, the ball joint is screwed in to the battery compartment, so you have to unclamp the entire light first to swap battery packs or recharge it. The Pro/Plus version of the Scubalamp and Jaunt lights have battery packs larger than 100Wh, which creates problems for air travel. There is a technical limit of 2 batteries between 100Wh and 160Wh per person, and some airlines may refuse to allow you to bring any at all. The Gates GT14 has an optional vacuum seal check to ensure proper seal. [EDIT: Updated the table to include two Big Blue lights (which I believe aren't great options ultimately) and the projected specs for a Scubalamp V6K with a flat front element]
  3. I have a question for owner of Gates housings with threaded ball mounts on the top of grip handles. Could you please tell me how significant is a problem with threaded ball mounts becoming loose? In the review of Gates AX700 / Z90 Housing (Sony FDR-AX700 / HXR-NX80 / PXW-Z90 / PXW-X70) by Karena and John Ellerbrock (owner of Gates), they pointed out on a problem with threaded ball mounts: "Ball mount on the top of the grip handles have been ¼-20 threaded type for over 20 years. They worked well, but have a tendency to rotate loose. Especially when re-positioning GT14 lights. So we fixed it. Within 3 days of our return to the office, a new design was done and headed to production. No more loose / spinning ball mounts." ​To address the problem, they developed no spin ball mounts, which are sold separately for $94 a pair (!). How big is this problem to spend additional $94 to address this design flaw? Also, have you experienced any other problems with this housing? Many thanks.
  4. Gates Underwater Z100 housing with Sony FDR-AX1 camera This is a professional underwater video system which has been used on numerous television productions as well as my show, Jonathan Bird’s Blue World, for a few years. This is one of the few cameras that can shoot 4K at 60p for awesome slow motion. I’m selling it as a complete package, with a few options. You can learn more about the housing on the Gates website The basic package includes: • Gates Housing (Retail $8,000) • Gates SWP44C super wide lens (120° field of view) (Retail $5,000) • Floatation collar for SWP44C (for neutral buoyancy) (Retail $300) • Gates Flat port FP44C for macro (retail $450) • SKB travel case (retail $300) • Top handle • White card on flexible loc-line arm • Sony FDR-AX1 4K camera (retail $4500) • Set of diopter flip filters for extra macro capability Total retail cost ~$18,550.00 ASKING $8,500.00 for the whole package. Will ship in the continental USA included. Please note that the monitor pictured on the top of the system is not included at that price. The outer element on the lens was replaced a few months ago so it is brand new and perfect. Options: • EM50 HDMI monitor (pictured on system) (Retail $2400) Add on: $1200.00 • Second camera so you can have a spare or matching above water camera: $2,500.00
  5. 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!
  6. I have a Gates AX100 housing and an AX100 Sony 4K camera I'd like to sell. I've had them for about three years; Gates maintained the housing last year. They have accompanied me on many dives and can produce very good video. When I switched to 4K I was surprised at how much the quality and detail increased - I'd not go back to 1K (HD). There are no ports with the housing. I'm keeping them for the next housing. The housing does have a vacuum port for the Gates Seal Check; the fitting is a $210 option and is included. The camera is in good condition, and complete with all accessories that came with it when new. I'm asking $750US for the camera, $1250US for the housing, plus shipping. I apologize for the photo quality - if you need more (hopefully better!) I can supply some. The first group of pictures will be the housing, then the camera.

  11. A little selection of macro goodness from a recent trip to Bali. Huge thanks to the entire team at The Underwater Tribe for taking me diving For anyone interested, this is the equipment list and settings etc - Shot on Red Scarlet W, 5K @ 40fps on a 25fps base timeline. Gates Pro Action Housing and Gates GT-14 Video Lights were used. The Nikon 70-180mm macro lens was also used and turned out to be a very versatile lens. The R3D's were edited and graded in Resolve 14.1 and a couple of clips were post stabilised. There wasn't a great deal of grading needed as the H20 OLPF works nicely, especially when white balanced off a white slate. Hope you enjoy.

  13. Gates AX100 Underwater Housing for Sony FDR-AX100 Video Camera, used once for a half hour. Purchased from the great folks here for $2,660: https://www.opticaloceansales.com/gates-ax100-video-housing-for-sony-ax100.html I also have the amazing Sony 4K FDR-AX 100 Camera that fits perfectly inside, making this a great package deal for the right lensman/woman. I've probably used this camera a total of 8 hours and it's in brand-spanking-new condition. I purchased this from B&H Photo for $1,598.00. I'll also include an extra battery for you. http://www.sony.com/electronics/handycam-camcorders/fdr-ax100 I'm selling because the project I had anticipated using this set up for never happened and this equipment is just sitting in boxes. Also, I've got too many cameras and I'm primarily shooting with splash housings in the surf lately. I've got all the original boxes, accessories, and manuals for all the equipment. I spent a total of $4,258, not including shipping on all the items, willing to part with everything for $3,950, including shipping, anywhere in USA. Please let me know if you need more info and I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Thank you! - Beth
  14. Despite almost zero information within the Red colour channel, the R3D files from the Scarlet W still grade up nicely. Took about 12 nodes to get to this point but considering the starting point of this clip, it turned out reasonably well, especially given the conditions. Conditions were tough with maybe 5 metres vis, surgy and lots of floating particles. This shot was about 18 metres deep. Scarlet W, 5k 50fps, Nikon 16-35mm and 8 inch dome on the Gates Pro Action Housing. Graded in Davinci Resolve 14.
  15. 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!

  19. Sydney has some very diverse marine life for a major tourist hub and Botany Bay, being on the door step of Sydney's international Airport is a surprisingly healthy environment. ​Some of the more cryptic species living in Botany Bay ate the Pigmy Pipehorses. These little critters are so well camouflaged that they are sometimes impossible to see even when looking directly at them. I put a little video together of a recent dive I did to film the Pigmy Pipehorses, hope you enjoy it.
