Hello guys

I was in Raja ampat this FEB

It was my first time there, and corals and critters there were truly amazing

 

I stayed in Biodiversity eco resort, was peaceful and calm, but no air-conditioning or fans. so we had to struggle with moist inside camera

Yenbuba jetty was my favorite, but during my dives in Yenbuba jetty I experienced terrible water leakage in my camera, so I had to let go of my a7s2 there, and used r2 which I brought for land-pictures (I was lucky in some sense)

 

A7sii,A7rii, sea&sea housing, SEL1635, SEL90M, weefine 8000lumen(x2)

(ps. Does anyone have good idea for using fisheye with A7?)

Final cut pro x, davinci resolve

 

Feel free to leave comments or advise.

Nice video... !!!

Want to ask if you use auto wb or the underwater wb on the r2? Or it's manual?
You shot it at 4k? Or which video mode? I also am going r4 in Dec. Want to try the setting out before I get there

Thank you hellhole, I used underwater wb when shooting in natural light, but I used manual & automatic WB when I was using my video lights.

Yes, I did in 4K, 24fps.

Looking sharp! Are you using Filmora in editing?

I use both. As underwater WB mode makes sometimes everything red, in case I use video lights, but when I keep it steady and focus on things, color become less red and sometimes very natural. 

And I did it in 4K, 24fps. And no picture profile.

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.
