Here is the video from my recent voyage to the Tubbataha reserve in the Philippines.  I have been diving for 20 years, and this the most amazing dive trip I have ever experienced.  

(Make sure to select 4K resolution, if your monitor supports that)

I was trying to figure out how to embed it so the full picture frame would come up, but I seem to be having no luck. The link above works

If you want to embed Youtube video, use the youtube.com URL, not the youtube.be url (the one that you get from the "Share" button.)

 

 

Seems like a great dive that you can get see a lot of big stuffs!

Very nice video, Basil! Looks like an amazing trip. Did you shoot this on the LX100?

I thought Basil changed camera?! If anyone is shooting with LX100, I recently tried out the Fantasea UWL-09F, it's the best WA lens for the LX100, beat the Nauticam WWL-1 in term of field of view. The LX100 is a 26mm focal length when shoot 4K, so it's very wide combine with the Fantasea wetlens, and give it a semi fisheye look.

Thanks for the tips @kc_moses. I am using an LX100 in an Ikelite housing (which is why I asked). I have been using the Ikelite WD-4 dome due to the lack of a 67mm thread on the housing. It still looks good to my eyes and budget!

Thank you for the compliments and for explaining how to post correctly!!

I use the LX100, in a Nauticam housing. I have the standard port on the housing, and also have the mini dome port . However, I had an equipment malfunction, the standard port basically was frozen on my housing and I could not change it out for the mini dome port. I would've wanted the mini dome port for some of the wide shots, but I was fine with the standard port. It's time to service the housing!

The LX100 is a rocking camera!!!

Thanks for the update and for the lowdown on your setup @Basil. I really enjoyed your film. I am also loving the LX100 and hope to upload some 4K video from my last trip to Roatán in the next few weeks.

Just a warning, I finally reviewed the video I shot with the LX-100 with the Fantasy UWL-09F WA lens. The corner has some softness issue. So I think if you want to use the UWL-09F, you would still need to zoom the LX100 to 28m-30mm to get rid of the softness. For that price compare to Nauticam WWL-1, it could be a good compromise.
