Vanishing Dutchman - Wreck diving in Sierra Leone

19 February 2015 - 10:57 AM

Today I wanna share with You not a fancy superb quality clip from top 5 scuba diving destination, but rather full adventure one from bottom 5 scuba diving destiantions :)




Here is a 10 min film from our wreck diving expedition to Sierra Leone. We had no idea what to expect, but we did a lot of really interesting work. This is a clip from 1st expedition to SL, it was followed with 2nd in 2014, and I can now say that we have "found what we were looking for" when we returned and the mistery of a Vanishing Dutchman is now solved, but that is a topic for a second part :D




Meanwhile, have a look at this so called part 1 of our Sierra Leone adventure:



As you may imagine, we hoped for egipt-class water but it turned out to be more of a hudson river :) Strong current and murky water. Here is me with a camera.





The video was shot on canon dslrs, sound designed and I had music composed for it. So it is a full pro amateur work :)


It is narrated by Leigh Bishop, some of You may have heard about him, we had him locked in a studio for ages, but now he is free at last :)




If someone is interested in our work, you can download a report from the 2012 trip: http://www.kardasz.n...h-Expertise.pdf It is in english. More to follow at www.sierra2014.com


Let me know how you like it.

Port extension rings for Tokina 11-16 and Tokina 10-17. Two best lenses for UW use in small frame DSLR.

The screent is conected via HDMI port.

Inside the housing is the Sony external monitor. It comes with everything that was in the set plus more: 3 batteries!! shade cover, cable, charger, bag ets.

Lamps are connected with EO cords with Y-connector. U can use them for heating.

I will also send You everythnig that I have, spare orings, spare balls, silicon, dome port polishing paste, etc..

If You want I will sell the camera with lenses:

Tokina 10-17mm f3.5 – best fish eye on the market for that type of camera – it is not on the picture, but it comes with the set!

Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 - best wide angle lens.

Body Canon 550d – I`m taking this pictures with it. Everything is in perfect condition except the camera, as I was using it on regular basis. So It works like new, but not looks like new icon_smile.gif

Stanley box.

Everything (except the canon body) is in perfect condition. I bought it in 2012. Only one thing was changed, one housing lock was replaced with new one. This is only thing differnet from the new one. there are some scratech here and there on monitor housing and on camera housng but only in terms of estetics.

If You pair the dslr with Magic Lantern http://www.magiclantern.fm/ you get an excellent setup.

The price for this was about 6500eur  without tax! when it was new.


Price: full set: 4000eur. If You buy the full set I will send You Divers of the dark book as an inspiration icon_smile.gif


Housing, dome port, wahoo monitor: 2600 eur
