#330896 Night/Wreck diving in Roatan with Keldans and HF G10

Posted by textilet on 05 May 2013 - 06:51 PM

A perfect storm of logistics (shore diveable wreck in clear water with 24 hour a day access) led to this video.  My brother and I decided to take the Keldan luna 8 CRI lights off of the housing and experiment with using divers to hold the lights in different positions.   The Prince Albert wreck offered lots of structure and relief to play with.  We were pleased with the results we got but also welcome advice from anyone with experience filming this way; we plan to hone these techniques for use on all of our wreck diving.

I shoot with a Canon HF-G10, which is the same camera minus the xlr inputs. As far as ease of use in an underwater setting, it is important to note that the functions are heavily touch screen dependent. As long as you have a housing which allows you to easily navigate the menus-either by external monitor and menu buttons ala L&M or By use of the remote ala Gates-it is easy to use. I have the L&M and have no difficulty using white balance, shutter speed, aperture control etc. on the fly.
Footage quality can be quite good if the settings are correct and you feed the camera enough light. I am very happy with the performance of the camera in low light especially. Blacks aren't grainy which was a constant issue with Our old camera. I will link to some footage below.
