Hi Saludos,

Nice footage and good music selection. 

Thank you for sharing.


It looks like you did not use red filter.  Is this correct?



#401509 Diving in Misool Raja Ampat with Sony A7Rii

Posted by Laval on 09 December 2018 - 08:33 AM

Here is my second project using FCPX: https://youtu.be/6u1IIMjMOWA

I will greatly appreciate your constructive criticism and recommendations.


In this video, I was trying to capture a beauty and abundance of marine life in Raja Ampat during our 9-day stay at Misool Eco Resort.

My camera is Sony A7Rii with a 28mm and 28mm+fisheye lens.

I used two Keldan Video 8X lights (11000 lm, 92 CRI), which are fantastic video lights. 


Thank you very much.





#399139 Diving with Gian Manta Ray - looking for constructive criticism

Posted by Laval on 07 September 2018 - 06:18 PM

In April 2018, I was very fortunate to participate in the Ray of Hope Expedition to the Revillagigedos Islands, off the coast of Mexico. The expedition was organized by Dr. Andrea Marshall – a National Geographic Explorer and the ‘Queen of Mantas'.


Here is a link to my 4-min video-report about this trip: https://youtu.be/dJKKAWb0Efs


This is my first video after moving from iMovie to Final Cut Pro.


Camera: Sony A7Rii, Housing Ikelite, lens 28mm with fisheye.

I did not use lights, and did not use any filters.


I will appreciate your constructive criticism.


Thank you.

Like the video.  It is kind of uplifting. 

Not sure I understand your question about using fisheye lens.

I have Sony a7Rii as well, and I used 28mm with a wish eye lens combination.  It works well for large fish, like in manta rays. You could see in my video: https://youtu.be/dJKKAWb0Efs.


Also, how did you managed do UW white balance with this camera.  It does not work for me underwater.

Thanks again for the video.  It is great.
