Really nice shots!

Can you tell a little bit more about the settings under water on the 5D? and how much ISO .....

Thanks. These were my first ever dives with the 5D3 so I threw it on aperture priority, and shot f8, and dropped the e/v compensation to -1, and let the camera pick it's ISO. I know it was shooting higher ISO's, ~3200 especially during the deep portion of the dive, although at that point I was paying more attention to my rebreather than I was the camera, so I didn't note the ISO.

Day 1 and 3 videos were ambient lit. Day 2 I shot with lights, but I couldn't' seem to get the WB correct on those days, which I ruled to operator error.

Shooting ambient light, this camera is amazing. I did periodic custom white balancing by doing quick shots off the sand. On the decent I did one at 70 feet, 150 feet and 270 feet. You can see at 270 and below because the footage looks very green, and unnatural. On 70 and above this camera is wonderful at manual white balance.

WOW!!! these are awesome! What lens did you have in the housing?

I shot the Canon 8-15 f4 fisheye, at 15mm.
