Hi guys, So I bought my first compact kit from ebay and tried it all in the pool yesterday but something is not quite right and can't figure out what it is. Setup: Meikon RX100ii housing Sony RX100ii - setup for underwater use only following this guide http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/sony-rx100-iii-underwater-settings Camdive Fish eye wet dome lens ISO Auto 160-800 AF off Issue: The object (a weight) I was filming got out of focus as soon as I zoomed in a little or got a bit closer to it (1 feet +-) on video mode. Also the image was getting darker overall but more pronounced around the edge of the frame - no vignetting though, it was as if someone suddenly switched off the main light. Bigger objects like other divers doing some training seemed to be in focus all the time. See clip - http://sendvid.com/r3czlbzl As I zoom out it gets in focus and when zooming in again out of focus. I only do video with the camera and the dial was setup on A mode. I just pressed the movie button to start filming and was fiddling with the zoom a bit to test. There was a message on screen all the time that said 'Tracking focus' I have no idea if this is related or not. There was a layer of water between the house port and the dome lens (as it is supposed to be?) so the lens was working fine at providing wide angle. I changed the focus area from flexible spot to center but did not make any difference. Does anyone know what this could be? I hope there is nothing wrong with the focusing on the camera... Cheers
