Howard Hall has posted a video of a sperm whale encounter in Dominica taken a couple months ago with a RED camera / Gates housing. As expected, the footage is buttery smooth and has been paired with the perfect music. I’m not in any way taking credit away from Howard’s impeccable technique, but this brings up one of the main differences between large and small underwater video rigs. A large rig is inherently more stable; those of us who have taken underwater video using a housed dSLR know that it is almost impossible to get stable footage on the surface.
The video was captured in RED 4K format. The divers in the clip are Douglas Seifert and Andrew Armour, and the music is by Shie Rozow.
