Hi Guys, this is my first video shot with the 7d Nauticam combo. Hope you like it. I have managed to edit this to 3.3 minutes. Its a herculean curve learning to edit video. Taken in July 2012 at Cenderawasih Bay



Cheers,

Diggy

Incredible footage. They are just like house pets. I have the exact same system. When the subject changes distance you have to keep refocussing with the 7D. Compared to a camcorder that always keeps your subject in focus, I find it to be very frustrating.

I was going to ask at what distance did you set your focus to?  Also, was the video shot all at the same focal length?  I'm setting up a 7D for u/w, I'm used to a video camera where it can be in constant focus, so here, the trick is to keep the distance constant, but you can't do that.  Do you stop shooting, re-focus, then shoot again?

 

I assume the lack of sharpness is due to all the compression you had to do to get the video to fit inside three minutes, correct?
