I've gone through all the settings that I used when colour correcting the example video and I've listed them below.  I have a load of screen shots but the forum won't let me post them so I've put up a video so you can see the shot numbers.

 

 

Feel free to ask any questions.

Cheers, Simon

Wow Simon, is there an export option in Resolve or are you an amanuensis?

Thanks for the reviews Simon! Very informative. 

 

I have "Jerry-rigged" an old Nikon F100 Nexus housing to fit my pocket camera with full focus and aperture control. I use a Nikon adapter and a Sigma 8-16mm lens behind a 170 port.

 

I have been really happy with the dynamic range of this setup and have graded the raw files in Resolve. I did post a few frame grabs a while back in another thread.

 

Last week I shot in very green and dark water at around 15m depth. I had to push the Raw files up two stops in post (Iso 3200). A little chroma noise reduction in post and voila! - useable sharp footage! I even managed to balance out the WB (No filter).

 

Basically went out and bought a BMCC MFT and a Nauticam housing today. My only gripe with Nauticams housing is the lack of a extra aperture wheel on the right housing side to control the aperture ring on a speed booster or G-compatible Nikon adapter. I'll be making and installing one myself. Another stop of light and a wider field of view will be awesome!

As to training - I have a lynda.com account, which I'm using to learn more about FCPX and Colour grading and generally try and improve my movie editing.

 

There is lots on there for Premier too, if anyone is interested. It is a 'paid for' service, but I'm finding the videos, very clear, informative and have a good 'course' structure to them.

 

Seeing all those numbers and settings, gee - not sure I would have the patients to do it - kudos Simon!


Regards, Richard

Will do, but it might take a while. I'm busy diving these days but will try to edit and grade something in a few weeks.
