Tested the Gates Housing and EX1 today…

David Ruck Gates Sony EX1

Experimenting with the Gates/EX1 in Lake Leelanau.

So I took a dive in Lake Leelanau today.  Just to be clear, there is nothing to see there.  Sand, zebra mussels, occasional tree stump.

It’s a very complicated rig and the monitor is difficult to use for much more than a frame reference.  Going to have to make sure I understand which settings the zebra stripes are set at, if auto-focus is actually turning on/off when I tell it to, and figuring out the best way to white balance at depth (it hasn’t been simple to figure that out, or exactly what process is turning auto exposure on/off)

This is definitely the most complicated camera unit I’ve ever operated.
