Little clip of swimming through the Tunnel cave at Fish Rock, South West Rocks, Australia. Lights used where from my Ikelite DS161 movie.

The Cod in the Cave is a rare Black Cod which is critically endangered.

Love cave videos, wish we had some here in Ca so I could get certified. Assume you were shooting in 24p. Is it the footage or You Tubes compression that causes the stutter in various places of the film?

Hi Steve.

I was shooting 1080p24fps. The cave (tunnel) runs East West and is open to the sea at the Eastern side (beginning of the clip). There is a little bit of surge which might have some effect on the clip.

Is the stutter still there if you play back in 1080p????

I saw that the new D5100 has 1080p with 30fps....hopefully Nikon provide an firmware upgrade to do the same.

It's just when the surge pushes you and you pan quickly. Caused by the 24p frame rate.

Nice vid, ocean caves don't get much press.

I use...
