Very interesting film. The macro shots are great, especially considering how cold you must have been. Too extreme for me!
Thank you for the comment!
You are right. Macro is not the easiest under such conditions.
On a macro dive i did an area of max 5 squaremeters, because there was so much crawling around. So no warming up with motion....Altough i had heated glows my fingers get cold on macro dives. But i was not afraid of 60 minutes dives or even longer.
Hey....its all for the images...
Very nice indeed Alex!
Nice edit and colors.
A couple of questions:
- All recorded with natural light or have used some video lights?
- What is the name of the creature at 3:00?

Thats the Sea Butterfly, max 4 cm big.
The entry ice shot was without lights.
On the other ice formations i used one light most of the time, just to lit the kelb or a rock. But I mWB at ambient light at the depth i start recording. Only in shallow water of course.
No red filter used. You can easily do mWB down to 20 meter and get amazing results after colorgrading. All i did, i adjusted the blues to max (lower right corner), because on the cam the picture looked greenish.
This is a photo timelapse with 1 sec interval/around 500 pics, duration around 10min. I did 6 timelapses. In the meanwhile i hung out around the camera. It was at the dive site Puri Jati on 5-6 meters depth.
You find the macro shots cold? Hmm...but they are really saturated.
i want to share my recent video from Bali with you.
It was the first time in the water with the GH5. I shot with mWB in CineD, with only 1080p 8bit, with Pana 7-14, Athena Dome and Oly 12-50 with my old Macro Mate.
For the beginning I shot with this resolution because i don´t wanted to render 400+ clips into proxy files.
All was shot in MF mode, or Locked Focus for the WA, The Tambia nudibranch was in Autofocus AFS.
I like the WA shots (taken at 10 to 16 meter), i´m not fully satisfied with the macro sharpness. I don´t know if it´s just the lense set up or the circumstance i shot with 10f or max 14f. The Oly isn´t the best lense in sharpness too, unfortunately. I have to figure this out on the next trip.
