    Thank you. You are a true gentleman. Hopefully we'll get to work again soon if they pick up this project for episodic series.

    All the best.

    Not super unique but I just started my underwater cinematography journey, in the fall. After years of wanting to take my Scarlet-x underwater I finally pulled the trigger on a used Gates Deep Weapon and Nikonos RS lenses. Working on a couple small personal projects, one being a doc on local marine life. But mainly just trying to learn as much as I can right now and figuring out how to build support gear for my setup on a limited budget. Right now I'm trying to figure out how to make the focus knob easier to turn with thick gloves and numb hands in the winter.

    Thanks Tom! The water in the winter gets pretty cold, I've seen surface temps as low as 0c when I've gone surfing. I had a custom dry suit made in November, so this was the first winter I actually dove here. Hardest part is staying out of the wind while setting up the housing. Id love to get down to Florida to do some diving at some point, I've only ever been snorkeling there.

    Hi J-

    One has to break an egg to make an omelet... haha!
    And, luckily, one of the omelets turned into the much welcomed H2O OLPF :)

    Hi Matt, Gates has a great solution for that: Knob Extenders.
    I made my own but it's best for you to contact John Ellerbrock at Gates. Great guy!!!
    Here some shots:

    Gates's Extension Knobs really feel good at hand and offer a great grip/precision, even with thick gloves.

    Hey guys, was hoping someone could offer some advice, in a bit of a frustrating situation with a new rig..

    I've shot stills in the water for a long time across surf and dive housings + FS7 etc. and never really had to deal with any major fog issues. Of course DSMC2 is a whole different beast, but i'm yet to be totally comfortable in being able to see out a swim without any condensation, and hoping there might be something simple i'm missing.

    My rig is an aluminium surf housing, Gemini, 502 monitor. If submerged - i'll get 40-60 minutes before the port is starting to fog around the edges, if out of the water on a jetski or boat more like 15 minutes. I recently added a vacuum valve system and some Silica packs up near the front of the lens - but it only seemed to slightly delay the same result. I'm trying to be fairly meticulous with not setting the camera up in non A/C, dry environments but regardless of where i'm setting it up I seem to be getting the same outcome.


    Should I be looking at blasting compressed air inside the lens port before closing up? Unsure of what else I can really do with this other than trying some other moisture absorbing products, and keeping the wet shirt over the housing body/port between shots out in the sun. Any tricks here would be much appreciated :)
