In Topic: Good tutorial on UW Color balancing with Premire 2019??

You need to have close to real color video to begin with before doing any color grading. You're not shooting RAW, so you can't restore color from a green tinted video. First rule of shooting underwater video is learn how to custom white balance.

In Topic: OMG!!!!! Camera with gimbal that's UW proof up to 60m...

The FOV of the Osmo Pocket should improved once put into the housing. Besides, there may be more 3rd party accessories once it become more popular. GoPro is really loosing ground lately as they are not able to catch up with the industry innovation so I'm sure everybody is going to jump on DJI eventually.

Thanks Richard, that make sense. Too bad I haven't had the chance to do a night dive with the DM60 yet, otherwise I will be able to gauge how wide the light beam is.


What kind of working distance are we talking about with these 12000 lumen cob light when use during the day, say on a sunny day at 90ft? My experience so far is no more than 2-3 ft from the subject.

I have the Archon DM60, which has the flat port, how can you tell it's 90 or 110 degree. The light beam seems quite spread when I use it.

In Topic: Who is excited about Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K?

11 October 2018 - 05:06 AM

I have both. On my trip to French Polynesia I used the GH5S underwater. It looked ok when casually checking the footage on a notebook during the trip. But during editing back home on a big screen iMac, the Micro-jitters were very apparent. and with strong currents you could „see“ the drag more than what I got with the GH5. I could fix some issues in post-stabilisation, but many not.

I‘d certainly go for the stabilized GH5 again next time and not the „s“.


That's just what I thought with the GH5S short coming, the BlackMagic Cinema 4K will have the same issue. The micro jitters could be smooth out in post such as using warp stabilizer, but you would have to sacrifice 5% of resolution to crop. Ideally a camera that do not have IBIS should shoot at 4.5K so there would be plenty of room to crop for stabilization in post.
