There's a good chance my next rig, at least for shooting small stuff, will be a Panasonic GH3 or Black Magic Pocket Cinema Camera in a Nauticam housing. It's also likely to have a Panasonic 45mm or Olypmus 60mm macro lens on it a lot of the time, behind a Nauticam macro port with a 67mm thread. Probably also a Subsee diopter on hand for super-macro. So here's the thing... How to get some wider establishing shots in a situation where you can't zoom? There are so many u/w macro videos these days where all you get is the tight/super-tight shots and for me they just don't flow as nicely as videos shot with older cameras that were zoomable. There's always the option of a 2nd cam, but it's an extra hassle, even if it's just a GoPro mounted on top of the main camera. How would a wet-mount wide conversion lens such as an Inon work in front one of those macro lenses? Is it a daft idea? What sort of image could be expected? If it's not a daft idea, can anyone recommend one that's easy to get on and off? Even flippable perhaps? Or any other bright ideas?
