Just got back from our trip from diving on the HMS Hermes in Sri Lanka.

 

 

Amazing diving, warm waters and the wreck is lovely...

 

Although in the planning for a few months and the housing/camera etc being on order since Jan - I didn't get any real chance of getting in the water with it before hand - straight to 50m!! HAHA So overall I'm so-so with the footage.

 

These DSLR video type rigs, really need some 'Pitch' buoyancy as all the floatation arms are on the Roll Axis, so making the camera very sensitive to backwards / forwards movement, I see Edmond mounts his Ninja2 behind the camera - which I will have a look at to try and give the camera more stability.


Regards, Richard

Deep wrecks are not my cup of tea but this seems a very good outcome and doesn't look shaky (did you stabilise in post?)

Was this the 7-14mm? Optical quality is excellent

Yeah the 7-14mm - and yep to post stabilisation - which I really didn't want to use - but it is applied.

There is only in some bits occasional distortion on the edges and very rarely within the frame. I guess this also meant a 10% crop but you had plenty to crop

Unfortunately YouTube has really mangled your footage.

Hi Peter,

 

Yeah I agree, plus the FCPX stabilisation hasn't helped.

Richard where do you watch your clips? At home the highest resolution device I have is an imac and it has 1440p. Do you have an ultra hd tv?
