Would love some constructive criticism!

Great exposure
Have you slowed sown the footage from 50 to 25 or 60 to 24 fps? Some of the fish appears slower than real life

Thank you interceptor!
Everything was shot in 4K 25p as the gh4 won’t do 4k60, so everything is in real time.
Recently purchased the gh5 housing to have the ability to slow it down just like you mentioned

Very stable footage. Did you use a tripod I suppose?

Yes, all the shots were shot with the xit 404 tripod. Quite heavy but excellent tripod!

Wonderful video - since you asked for constructive criticism, the only thing that I would say is that the music was a bit uninspiring.  Far more generic than the spectacular video work deserves.  Great stuff otherwise.

Thanks man! Looking back on it I kind of have to agree. I really struggled in my search for a song.

Thanks man!
Im using the xit 404 twist clamp legs. They work like a charm :) I do also keep my rig about 1.5kg negative to make sure it stays stable even in current.
I just set the wb to match my lights to avoid any color shifts but Im sure awb would work just as well for this type of closeup work.
Light were archon w42vr or something, I forgot the name. 5000 lumen lights tho, and a snoot by inon..the lf 800n. Lovely snoot for video work, would totally recommend!

Jesper

I use the Inon spotlight as well and love it but I find that unless I drop my colour temp down to about 3600K the images are very much warmer than my wide angle lights which are similar to your Archons. I find adjusting the colour temp white balance back and forth a little annoying and I know that you can just fix it in post for the most part but I was just wondering if you have the same issue and how you manage it?

Cheers

Steve

That's correct. It is warmer for sure. I mostly use my snoot when I shoot macro, very rarely turn the big lights on so for me it's not much switching back and forth.
I try to always have my wb on the cool side and if I happen to use my wide angle lights and forget to switch to a warmer wb I'll just fix it in post.
There is a blue filter for the light that I haven't actually tried, if you swap a lot u might wanna give that a try altho I can't tell u how much it would actually help in your situation.
