Thanks for the info. Ive been resisting a fisheye lens but I like your results enough to seriously reconsider.

Ill be in Anilao tomorrow and will definitely drop by to look for Pong.

Wow, fantastic work!  I love everything about your video.  When people want to know what diving in Anilao is like, this is where they should look.  A few questions if I may: 


What wide angle lens and port were you using?  That shot at 0:55 with the nembrotha in the foreground and diver in the distance is brilliant. 


Were your macro sequences all hand held or did you have any sort of tripod?  I'm amazed at how stable they are at such high magnification (e.g. the pygmy at 1:20)


What is your lighting setup?  You got a great quality of light in most shots especially the macro.  I don't do video but the color grading also looks very good to me, with the wide shots looking very natural and correctly white balanced (unlike some videos we see where the blue is dialed up to almost neon). 


Did you keep the name and contact info of your spotter?  Whoever it was, they are a lot better than the guy I dive with.  I'd hire them if I could


Now a minor quibble - you missed getting my weekend house in the frame of the opening sequence by about 100m!  ;-)
