The blue is very blue, not just in the water but also at the beach. The blue color balance out the sunball ray and not over expose the sunball. I'm currently using a Panasonic LX-7 point and shoot and couldn't achieve this level of quality. The video was shot with Canon 5DMark II. I'm considering using my Canon 7D in the future as upgrade. But I couldn't find any Canon 7D footage with this level of quality in Youtube, is there a trick to get this kind of quality?
I used Magic Filter before and still not at this quality.
Judging from the video above, these are the only thing I could think of that's heading to the right direction:
1.) shoot at 24 fps?
2.) Custom white balance at depth.
Also, there is virtually no particle/backscatter in the footage, could the water really be that clean/clear or there is a trick? Man the video is so inspiring!
