Post Processing RAW footage from 5D iii ML in Mac

21 April 2014 - 08:29 PM

Hello fellow Wetpixellers,

I am interested in learning more about shooting and editing with the RAW footage available from ML hacked 5Diii's

What are people using out there and what seems to be the best solution?

I am currently using FCP 7 and PP CS4 so a solution using either of these would be best. I've heard about the RAW2DNG plugin that's available. How does that work?

Any help would be appreciated.

Many thanks





Sola 2000 failures

04 April 2014 - 04:30 PM

Hello fellow Wetpixellers,

Over the last few years I have purchased 3 Sola 2000 lights. Over the course of these 2 years, they have all failed for the same reason, the switch. Now the third one has died and I'm unable to get them repaired here.

After getting no help from the L&M support online I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what was done about it.

I would like them repaired. After all they are $700+ each and should have lasted more than 50 dives or so.

Is there a way to bypass the switch. I was assuming it was magnetically activated but I might be wrong.

Any feed back would be much appreciated.






5D Mk 3

30 March 2014 - 09:25 PM

Hello fellow Wetpixellers, I am considering investing in the 5DMk 3 and Nauticam system to cover low level stills and footage both above and below. I am wondering iof anyone out there has any recommendations for WA zoom lenses together with dome optics/extensions/diopters/TCs. I'm leaning at the moment towards the 16-35 canon for this. Additionally what do people use for editing the footage produced, (I'm currently using FCP7)Will Express be necessary? Also MWB methods. Red filter/White Slate/Sun/fins? What works best for people? All feedback would be much appreciated. All the best Richard

Underwater Stock Footage

10 March 2014 - 07:13 PM

Hello fellow Wetpixelers,

During the effort to fully catalog over 5 years of underwater filming on an almost daily basis I have been finding some "Hidden Gems" that I had forgotten about due to the pressure to turn things around for the next day.

I am only half way through the phenomenal number of tapes but to break up the monotony of viewing, extraction, key-wording etc I have put together a short show reel which uses a minute fraction of what I have found so far. Clips chosen mainly for how they flow into each other.


So I thought I would share it with you.


Footage shot between Jan 2008 and Jan 2010.





Crustacean ID Please?

Hello everyone, I'm wondering if I can get some help with this critter?: http://www.footagese...ips/RBR022_0060

A Crab of sorts living in a burrow dug by it or vacated by a boring worm or something.

One colourful character and there's so many here but I don't know the name!


The internet here is SO slow that searching online takes longer than writing this request and waiting a couple of days for a reply....


So any help would be much appreciated!
