Gopro Videos

29 December 2012 - 12:16 PM

Hi All,

Here are a couple of videos I made using primarily a GoPro and some of the stills were taken with a Canon 550D/T2i - in hindsight I would have went with the HD format - so unfortunately they are quite low resolution - it was my first attempts.

Here is a trip to Guadalupe

And here is one of lobster diving/spearfishing/Whales around Bermuda - it does have some images of fish and lobsters being caught so if you are squeamish about that kind of thing I suggest you dont watch it - the marine environment around Bermuda is very well managed and protected with strict quotas an policing - and of course we only ever catch what we can eat.



The whale footage is from Newfoundland.

Any constructive criticism welcome!

Cheers,

Guadalupe White Shark Photography

I'm headed to Guadalupe in August on the Nautilus Explorer and I am looking for any input anyone has on the setup to shoot the sharks from the cages. I have the T2i and 2 lens set ups I plan on using:

1) the Tokina 10-17mm behind the S&S NX Dome Port
2) the Canon 17-40mm behind the S&S NX Dome Port plus the 40mm Port Extension

Having researched this in depth I am concerned that I may have made a bad decision with the 17-40mm and perhaps should have went for the 10-22mm (but its not too late to correct the mistake!). I understand there will be no 'right' setup 100% of the time - but I chose this setup as I think it will give me a good mix of shots of the sharks. Any input anyone has on shooting sharks from cages would be appreciated - especially in the good viz conditions at guadalupe. Should I bite the bullet and get the 10-22mm as well????

Thanks,
