This footage is not my own but the Mermaid Liveaboards videogrpher Nu.

The footage was all taken from a ten day liveaboard on the Mermaid 1 and just a small snippet of the time we had.

Nu uses a 7D in Nauticam box ( sorry alex ) 10-17 for wide angle behind a mini dome and 100mm IS for macro and a Subsee +10 for small critters. Sola 600's for lighting

Wow Nu, you really nailed that one. Great work! And what an amazing variety of marine life for one liveaboard.

Did you use a tilt shift lens for your opening?

Nu, what depths was this shot at? Particularly those deeper parts when the image is more dark blue, and the reds are getting funky pink :)

Hi!In the beginning part the beautiful reef shot I shoot on shallow depth between 3-8 m but the schooling fish shot was deep about 20-30 m.
Usually I have no funky pink rock problem with shallow depth but when go deeper sometime I can see that problem too but I try to re-do manual white balance adjusting
a few times and look at the result in live-view LCD then shifting white balance little bit :)I think DSLR vdo has this funky pink rock less than camcorder :)
