Topics I've Started

Filter mounted on lights

07 October 2016 - 10:50 AM

Just got a set of Big Blue 7500 lumen lights.  They came with yellow filters.


In my past experience, I liked my halogen lights for night dives.  My 1500 lumen LED lights did not do much for day dives and looked cold on night dives.  


Should I use the yellow filters with the Big Blue lights for night dives only ?

Preferred focal length or field of view

Curious what focal length/field of view people shoot video at most. It is probably a matter of where you dive and personal preference.


For myself, I mainly shoot medium angle/portrait of marine animal life.  I use wide angle mainly for setup shots.   


A lot of photographers love wide angle and fisheye, but for video, I find it a specialty shot.  Wrecks, people, fish schools, the rare times I can get very close to a large animal, lush reef landscape scenes.  


I ask because I just got a new camera for video.  As you know, wide angle underwater lens and ports are expensive.  I am debating the expense vs. how often I will use it.
