Hi,

I had a week of pretty awful weather in Palau at the beginning of this year. As someone who relies a lot on ambient light, this wasn't ideal, but as always in Palau there were some great dives. Highlights here:

Great video Matt

 

Did you use the GH2 firmware by Driftwood/ Vitaly by any chance?

Thanks, David. Yep, you're right, I used Vitaly's hack, and my own custom patch: 50 Mbps, GOP 3, quantization mostly to details. With that hack I can still get about 1h22 min of video on a 32 GB card, and I think it's a sweet spot of quality and file size.
