In Topic: Choose your weapon: SLR versus video camera for filmmaking

Today, 05:55 AM

What si missing from this discussion for me is the 2k RAW footage from the Blackmagic Pocket Camera. From the samples I have seen I think it looks nicer than 4k. I would love to see some well graded underwater footage from it but can't find any.

There are some examples generally due to the issues with lenses and crop factor plus ergonomics this is not popular choice
I would not agree it looks better than GH4 and even some normal HD either

I have used 'red diffusers' read more on this post




I remember I did custom white balance in general it depends on the resulting temperature the filter brings it back to 2700-2900K which is still in range for auto white balance

If you do use custom white balance you may have more issues than what you try to sort out


Generally the idea of using only red light as the fish does not see it is a bit of a legendary thing to be honest. If you beam strong power light even if it is red the fish will see it

thanks interceptor, the shots are beautiful particularly like the sunburst and the mermaid shot. very cool. are they full quality when uploaded to flikr or compressed at all?
you think the above set up would work but with switching the camera? would also be interested to hear any other set up suggestions...
vondo, thanks also,was thinking about mirrorless systems a little too, quite interested to see if anyone is going to make a housing for the soon to arrive canon m3.... 
alex do you know if nauticam are planning to make one?

Flickr uploads from lightroom are not full quality but for a good quality not outstanding monitor
Some of the shots are taken at 1/2000 shutter forget about doing that with an mft or SLR is a prerogative of leaf or electronic shutters
In the compact realm for stills there is nothing better compared to mft the rx100 performs just below em5/em1 major limitation is super macro but for wide angle is actually a more flexible set up

Alex is spot on and still have some Sony RX100 Mark II housings on stock that together with the camera make a very appealing set up for wide angle


I don't take many still but some examples are here
