Olympus TG-5 vs. GoPro 7 vs. canon 5dmkiv setup
Gladiator112 posted a topic in Beginner ForumHi everyone Ive been around the forum for a while but never posted before. Im in a bit of a quandary, I have a nice 5DmkIV but no experience or equipment for underwater. To date Ive used go pros and recently purchased the 7 black. Im by no means a professional, I like to take photos blow them up and hang them on the wall and in a coffee table book I put together but thats it. Ive read a lot of good stuff on the TG5, and Ive been watching some underwater housings for my canon, but the more I read and learn the more indecisive I get. I have a dive trip to Bimini to swim with hammerheads in a couple weeks, from what Ive heard thats only 15-25 feet deep and want to take some great photos! Debating if strobes would be necessary and toying with getting strobes for the GoPro? Is that silly? Then I have a trip to Fiji next month which Id like to bring some equipment, but dont really want to lug a huge pelican case across the planet. Is there a efficient backpack size setup for my Canon that I can get? Does anyone have experience with a GoPro and strobes? Is the Olympus significantly better than the GoPro? Does anyone have any tips for hammerheads? Ive read a few posts. Also is anyone selling an old housing or set up that would fit my mkIV. Thanks for any and all responses, I feel like im out of my depth here.
For sale is my much loved FL Ikelite housing, 8 “ dome port, macro port and port extensions. The reason for sale is I am moving to the Ikelite DL style housing therefore everything for the FL setup is being sold. I use this equipment for work so it has been used but meticulously taken care of. Soaking in fresh water and pressing buttons after every use and then soaking in warm fresh water every couple of weeks. There are some cosmetic blemishes which do not affect the functionality or integrity of the housing whatsoever. The dome shade (just the plastic shade not the dome port) has some small cracks in the plastic which I have glued to prevent cracking further. The tray has the usual scratches and scuffs from resting on surfaces. The rubber handles are slightly worn. The neoprene dome port cover has some wetsuit glue on the seams to hold the stitching together. I have included pictures of all of this. Please let me know if you would like more. Please understand this is a used housing so does have obvious signs of use but it has never been flooded and it functions 100% the same as the day I bought it 2 years ago. Here is a list of parts included and prices (if selling individually) Canon 5d mkiii FL housing - 6871.03 $900 Modular 8" Dome - 5510.45 $200 Port extension - 5510.24 $70 Port extension - 5510.11 (attached to the dome port in pictures) $60 Macro Port - 5505.45 $90 Universal zoom and focus gear for lenses $10 I would prefer to sell as a package so price will be $1150USD if bought together. The lenses I have used with this setup are the Canon 100mm IS macro, Tokina 10-17mm and Canon 16-35mm mkii. You can refer to Ikelite’s port chart on their website to see all compatible lenses. I am currently on Tioman Island, Malaysia but will be travelling to Singapore and then Florida on the 17th of July. Therefor you can collect or I can post to you from any of those locations. I accept PayPal, bank transfer etc… Please let me know if you have any questions. You can also contact me at: GrantJPThomas@gmail.com
