Hi Buck,

Those video clips were shot with two Sony CX550V's in a custom housing, not GoPros.

So, our debate about whether it was Emma with the tattered fin is answered!

I've been back to look at our trip: no turtles or Goliath groupers (thanks to you all for your posted images), but pretty good dolphins...

David Doubilet and Jen Hayes are in the area as well (as was Wyland, last week), working with scientists who are tagging goliaths and collecting eggs.

Hopefully, someone who was shooting stills will join this thread and upload images!

I was on a trip with David Doubilet and Jen Hayes just a few weeks after diving the Baja California wreck about 65 miles off Naples FL. (October 1-3, 2010.) I got to shoot along side him and helped the scientists by mounting lasers to my video rig to take Goliath measurements. We talked shop a lot on the 7 hour trip back to Ft Myers. I have some vid of him auto-bracketing away at 115 ft. I call it "David and Goliath". A frame grab is in my WP gallery.

3D anaglyph (red/cyan) video of a school of Atlantic spadefish (Chaetodipterus faber). Jupiter, Florida. September 11, 2010. Converted to black & white for anaglyph red/cyan to work.

(replaced with color version -- see below)

This particular video looks great at 1080p full screen on a 17" monitor, but suffers greatly when reduced in resolution and viewed as a postage stamp-sized video.

By the way, this 12-second clip took a few minutes to convert to ProRes, around 5 minutes to assemble into 3D with Dashwood Stereo3D Toolkit / Final Cut Pro, 13 minutes to export back out (to ProRes), and then a few more minutes to compress down to H.264 720p with watermark. Computers owned by mortals are not ready for 3D workflow.

Just got the Dashwood software. Any chance of a workflow tutorial from you?
