Hello everyone, I am currently in the process of setting up my underwater videography gear and would like to get some advice on the best optical quality that I can achieve using Sony A1/A7SIII cameras. I have done a lot of research and have found that using the 28-60 F4-5.6 with the WACP-1 and for macro, the Sony 90mm lens seems to be the best option. I am planning to invest in the Nauticam housing, but I am unsure about the optics that I should get. There are a few options available, such as the 28-70 F3.5-5.6 OSS and 16-35 PZ F4. I am also unsure about whether I should go with the WACP-1 or WACP-C, as some people say that the optical quality is not significantly different to justify the price difference between them. So, I would like to get your opinion on what is the best combo I should use for wide-angle (mainly for videography). for macro setup, everyone suggests the Sony 90mm lens, but I am wondering if there are any other better setups for macro. Regarding lights, I've heard that Keldan lights are the best, but I'm not sure which model to go for. Additionally, I'm wondering if they're really worth the investment, as they do seem to be quite pricey compared to other dive light brands. Have any of you used Keldan lights before, and if so which model do you recommened? do you think they're worth paying 3x-4x more money for? Lastly, I would like to ask for your opinion on whether there is a better setup that I should consider instead of the Sony A1. Is there another camera or setup that will provide me with better quality? I am looking for something within the price range of the A1 (my budget is 20-25k for the whole underwater setup excl. camera and lenses), so please don't suggest the RED V-raptor XXL with gates housings :p I'd really appreciate any recommendations or insights you have, especially if you've had practical experience with the equipment you're recommending.
Is the new SONY A7S III suitable for housing NAUTICAM NA-A7R IV #17423 ? I know that the body sizes A7R IV and A7S III are slightly different, but a detailed study of this question and Nauticam's evasive answers leave hope that this is potentially possible. ... for example, by creating a new platform that is screwed to the bottom of the camera before installing it in the housing...
Hi all, not sure if this belongs here or in the video forum, but probably both... Now that I have a general idea about what options there are for using the Nikonos RS lenses on digital bodies, there is one thing that seems to be missing. There have been manual focus adapters made by Gates and Nauticamcam, but exclusively for RED cinema camera's. Other companies offer lens conversions that allow autofocus on modern Nikon camera's, but this is not what I'm after. I would like to get manual focus and iris control, like Gates and Nauticam are offering, but on a Sony A7S III body. So no conversion to the lenses, just an adapter in the housing that allows focus and iris to be set from (large) knobs on the houding (ideally without the use of electronics). Does anyone know of a setup like this?
