#399769 Underwater Colour Correction With The Sony AX100

Posted by Pete L on 30 September 2018 - 09:44 PM in Video Gear and Technique

Hey Val, I haven't had time to write another in depth article for the AX700 as yet but it is a significant leap forward over the AX100.

I am currently in the process of creating a full post production training series, using the free version of Davinci Resolve so keep an eye out for that when it is released.

 

Cheers Pete.




#396687 HDR Underwater

Posted by Pete L on 22 June 2018 - 05:12 PM in Video Gear and Technique

Sorry interceptor, We are talking LOG. Log is NOT Rec709!  If you set your camera to record LOG you are recording HDR capable footage.

 

If you put LOG on a Rec709 timeline - then of course you only get an SDR clip as a result.

Don't confuse BT2020 with HDR. They are not one and the same.

You can record and or deliver in BT2020 but if you want to deliver HDR then you must set your timeline to monitor and deliver an HDR compliant file.

Keepin mind that HDR is not resolution specific. Comparing HDR to 4K is not really a viable comparison.
 




#390233 Bali Macro on red Scarlet W

Posted by Pete L on 11 December 2017 - 03:20 PM in Shooting Technique, Workflow and Editing

amazing

 

Thank you Lior :)

 

Really impressive video. The detail is astonishing in 4K. I'm amazed that you can maintain that level of stability shooting handheld macro. Kudos!

 

Thanks Evil Otter LOL.
​YouTube has compressed the image quality as well. If your housing is trimmed up nicely, you can get good stable footage handheld.
​It does take some practice though.
 




#390232 Bali Macro on red Scarlet W

ya, its getting worse all the time. Bali is particulary bad.

 

Bub it was my first time in Bali and the rubbish situation was an eye opener for sure.
​It is a shame that the Balinese treat the land that way.




#390147 Bali Macro on red Scarlet W

Posted by Pete L on 07 December 2017 - 07:30 PM in Shooting Technique, Workflow and Editing

Nice! How are you able to pan so smoothly? Which tripod do you use?

 

No tripod used Pyroracer. All handheld.

Having a housing that is able to be trimmed up for neutral buoyancy makes a huge difference. One of the many benefits of using a dedicated video system is the ability to trim the housing perfectly. Plenty of practice helps too mate.  




#390146 Bali Macro on red Scarlet W

Posted by Pete L on 07 December 2017 - 07:27 PM in Shooting Technique, Workflow and Editing

Nice, at 0:43 there is some text in the lower left corner which first I thought is a lens reflection. But it seems to be some plastic in front of the frog. Could be easily edited out using a tracked window in Resolve :)

 

Certainly could be Bub but I didn't see a need to do that.
The amount of rubbish was quite astonishing.




#389666 Bali Macro on red Scarlet W

Posted by Pete L on 23 November 2017 - 02:47 PM in Shooting Technique, Workflow and Editing

A little selection of macro goodness from a recent trip to Bali.
Huge thanks to the entire team at The Underwater Tribe for taking me diving :)
 
For anyone interested, this is the equipment list and settings etc -
 
Shot on Red Scarlet W, 5K @ 40fps on a 25fps base timeline.
Gates Pro Action Housing and Gates GT-14 Video Lights were used.
The Nikon 70-180mm macro lens was also used and turned out to be a very versatile lens.
The R3D's were edited and graded in Resolve 14.1 and a couple of clips were post stabilised.
There wasn't a great deal of grading needed as the H20 OLPF works nicely, especially when white balanced off a white slate.
 
Hope you enjoy.
