#390007 Dive and See DNC-5A(H1) Monitor clip playback

Posted by benedika on 03 December 2017 - 01:09 AM

Hi,

a question for all DNC-5A(H1) users.

Do i have a clip playback on this "HDMI output only" monitor?

If not, i got the wrong monitor or do i have to change settings?
I went through the cams and monitors set up without getting a playback.

Thanks!

Alex.

I tried it again. Playback is running now.
I tried it two times before-no playback, only a black screen. The black were my clips with the neopren cover on the dome.
How embarrassing! :-)


#389784 Bali with GH5

Posted by benedika on 27 November 2017 - 06:58 AM

Thank you for the comment Davide!

 

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.




#389768 Bali with GH5

Posted by benedika on 27 November 2017 - 01:55 AM

Hi,

 

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.

I had no monitor on my set up. What a pain!

 

Let me know what you think!

 

Alex.

Beautiful video, great lighting, enjoyed watching it...Thanks for sharing.

Thank you for your comment!

I like the constant twilight and the absent of bright ambient light of the fjords. you can play around with the lighting and give a scene special touch. 

Like in one of my Norway videos. It looks like nightdives but most of this shots are made during the day. http://wetpixel.com/...951#entry378785

Posted by benedika on 09 May 2017 - 05:02 AM

Thank you!

In the hand close up you can see the water temp on the computer. -1,4

But to be honest, i wasn´t freezing, i wasn´t even cold. I was wearing two Merino wool layer and an Ursuit Clo 1,97 and had a very positive approach.  the longest dive was 61 min.

yep, still a 1K camcorder video from the guy who left the tropic seas behind him. Coldwater rules! (at least for the next trips)

 

i like to share my video "Norway - the dark edition" with you.

It is full with rarities. Deepsea jellyfish Peryphilla peryphilla, deepsea corals, ratfish aka ghostsharks, monkfish and a tadpole fish.

 

 

Theres also a narrated version of this video on my Vimeo account, called Norway - Ran´s Story. check it out.

#361169 Wall of Sharks

Posted by benedika on 16 May 2015 - 10:28 PM

hi,

 

 

a short Video from my recent trip to THE top natural spectacle, in my opinion,

the famous wall of sharks of Fakarava South pass

 

https://vimeo.com/128041322

 

It was Eric Chengs Video that made me go to Fakarava, actually. I wanted to see this natural spectacle live, no words can describe my impression stuck in my mind from these shark dives.

 

i dived with Top Dive, first only because of nitrox reasons, but during my stay i have found half a dozen more important reasons why it was the best decision to choose Top Dive. No doubt a recommendation.

 

Alex.
