Not just a favorite image also a favorite first time underwater experience for 2012; the sheer chaos and excitement of sailfish in a bait ball. Hopefully I will get to experience it again next month.

#353017 Lembeh Straits Extreme Macro

Posted by CheungyDiver on 27 September 2014 - 02:28 PM

Hi Folks

 

I have just finished a series of video clips from the Lembeh Straits using a Sony A7s, Nauticam housing and my custom 5X lens. A DIY led light integrated macro port plus two RG Blue lights. Here is the first one. I used a saturated grading style as I am interested in bringing out the color and texture. Even aperture at F32, DOF is paper thin.  A bit of vignette is added. Hope you will enjoy it.

Posted by Scuba_SI on 05 September 2014 - 08:55 PM

Hi everyone, here's a post about the video that was on the front page recently.  Shot in Ha'apai, Tonga with and Epic, GH4 and a GoPro 3+ Black.

It was so much fun and the edit was done whilst still on the trip, so before I put it out in 4k I will likely re-compose it.

Thanks for viewing:




#346184 BMPCC underwater filming setting

Posted by edmond320 on 14 April 2014 - 08:27 AM

Different people use different ways to achieve what they want. To my concern, what is good ,what is bad, it doesn't matter. What matters to me is the process to find my own resolution while I face problem and if I can get what I want at the end. 

Your comments are loud and clear regarding using different system on supporting underwater camera. And I thank you your input to my topic.

I would also like to said that my topic is BMPCC filming setting. I post my pictures is in respond to a gentleman asking a more detail regarding the platform I made to support BMPCC housing. 

Please accept my apology that I open this topic is to discuss the issue relating to BMPCC housing. Other than that, you are welcome to open your topic.

Happy diving to all of you.

 

Cheers

Edmond

Fantastic dive sunday with my buddy Rob. We sat 4 Giant Pacific Octopus at Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel, CA. One of them was quite interactive.

#323728 Favourite Image Of 2012

Posted by vetdiver on 03 January 2013 - 07:31 AM

I love this thread - Pam Murph, your image is lovely, and I love the humor of the model's Mickey ears!

This year, after 20 years of diving open circuit, I got certified to dive on a closed-circuit rebreather. My class was at the beginning of July, and I had to put aside my camera for a while afterwards so I could become comfortable with new buoyancy and other skills. The first day I took my camera back out, I was pretty nervous; I could hardly shoot for constantly checking my pO2. That dive day coincided with what we in Southern California see as a nearly annual event - an influx of jellyfish that come in briefly, then disappear. This year's jelly was a pretty uncommon one, the black sea nettle. (I had only seen one of these before, years ago, and it was pretty beaten up.) Seeing tens of them in the water column on this day was incredible. We brought some friends out to shoot them 2 days later, and the vis and jelly numbers had dropped precipitously.

This image was my favorite of the year because it was the first real encounter I'd had with these creatures...and most of all because it was my first day getting used to diving a rebreather with my camera in hand. I didn't take many photos, but because there weren't a bunch of exhalation bubbles, I got a few keepers anyways.

Here's to great diving and successful shooting in 2013!!

My favorite experience this year was hanging out with Spotted Dolphins in Bimini last August, they are just so much fun to be in the water with! 

 

I am back in Bimini this week shooting Great Hammerheads and doing Tiger Sharks with Epic next week for my project Giants of the Caribbean. It seems that I am just going to miss Adam and others who are there now..

 

Best fishes for 2015 to everyone!

 

Vincent

#352266 GH4 - Nauticam Macro Lens/Port Thoughts

Posted by peterbkk on 03 September 2014 - 05:57 PM

I just got back from 4 days of excellent diving in Lembeh with the GH4.

I haven't had time to do a proper edit but I know that some of you are interested in how the macro lens combinations worked in the real world. So, I quickly pulled together a few examples. They have not been graded, stabilized or adjusted in anyway.

Here is the equipment that I used.

Panasonic GH4 set to C4K 24fps, 1/50 Shutter Priority, PinPoint Focus-AFL/AEL
Nauticam NA-GH4 Housing
Lens: Panasonic Lumix 14-45mm PZ
Nauticam System 35 Port with Flip Holder
Subsee +5 Macro Diopter
Inon UWL100 +10 Macro Diopter
iTorch 7 - 5000 lumen lights x 2 mainly on 1/4 or 1/2 power

The footage was imported into FCPX, some samples quickly selected, then exported as a 4K Mov file. The 4K file was compressed into 1080P before uploading to Vimeo



On a large monitor, the 4K footage looks great. So, I'm happy with the macro set-up. The Subsee +5 is excellent for larger subjects and the Inon +10 works for little stuff.

The Lembeh Sea Dragon at the start of the sample footage is so tiny that it kept "disappearing" and I had to find it again - like a tiny piece of string with a small knot on the end. I shot that with the +10 Inon.

The red Starry Night Octopus was a big fellow - about the size of a football. The wider whole-body shots were done with just the 14-45mm lens (at the 14mm end of the zoom), but the close-up on the eye was shot with the Subsee +5.

The blue-ring was also the +5 with the 14-45mm zoomed to about 35mm.

What would I change? Not much. It works well. It'd be great if I had a double-flip adapter so I did not need to take off the +5 and put on the +10 for the really little stuff but that's mainly a Lembeh issue and i may find that the +5 works for most stuff elsewhere.

Regards
Peter

PS. Next week I'm off to Komodo to put the 7-14mm / Zen 170mm through its paces.
