iPhone 14pro and divevolk seatouch 4 trouble focusing

I have taken it out on 4 dives now and I keep struggling with focusing. Unfortunately it caused this beautiful footage of spinner dolphins all to be blurry. I clean the phone lenses before and wipe the inside as best as I can. I have found .5x is better but I don't always want that. Any advice would be great!

Worthwhile using a gray card?

I just noticed that Adobe Premier Pro has a White Balance option using a reference point. Is it worthwhile taking a grayscale reference card down with me?

I mean, it's just photopraphy, right? :)

Looking for feedback

I've been experimenting with different types of uw photography. More landscapes, reflections, ultrawide fisheye. Im looking for feedback if this is interesting, attention grabbing, unique, or just boring. Always learning....

Direct feedback would be helpful.

Luggage Recs

I've been using a rolling duffel bag and a large soft sided suitcase to pack my dive gear (bcd, regulator, fins, boot, 3mm wet suit) and camera gear (Nikon D7200 and lenses, Subal housing, dome, YS-1 strobes, etc.), but the rolling duffel is biting the dust, so I'm looking for new luggage. I could continue the same way using my wet suit to protect the dome, etc. while fighting to keep the weight of each case under 50 pounds each.

My dive trips are a mix of 1 week land based and 2 week trips on live aboards.

What are you using? What would you do differently.

Just watched David Attenborough's Planet Earth 3, coastline part 1. I believe they had the same shot except on video.

Material help

Hello! :)

I want to start combining my love of photography and the water by photographing surfers or people having fun in the water in general. I have experience in both digital and analogue photography. What kind of equipment would you advise me to start with? Is it better to have a sub-aquatic camera or a digital one with a good protective case?

Used Nauticam WACP-C Asking Price?

I have a Nauticam WACP-C lens I bought a little over a year ago new for $3,075. The metal mount and lens collar show some wear and is missing a little paint here and there but doesn't effect the performance of the lens and the glass has no scratches. What price should I be asking for it or what percent off the original price should I list it for?

Specific Seafrogs Salted Line A7SIII Question

Hello! I just recently purchased a Seafrogs Salted Line A7SIII Underwater Housing Unit and happy to report that it held its own during the test trials.

However, during the initial set up I absolutely stripped the hell out of the locking port’s screw that secures the Dome port to the Housing Unit (shown in image) and was wondering if anyone knew what the exact size of the screw that Seafrogs uses so that I can buy a better replacement from Home Depot or somewhere that isn’t cheap or low quality like the replacement that is on their website before I unscrew it?

Any insight is appreciated!
