#322891 Underwater Realm Premier Tickets

Posted by CamDiver on 17 December 2012 - 09:54 PM

If you'll throw in the round trip from Bali would love to take you up on the offer!

Sadly will be trying to engrave the letter 'H' into my newly arrived Emmy award after waiting so bloody long for it only to see my new job description is now CINEMATOGRAPER! Illiteracy at NATAS too, crazy beans.

Best to the family and hope the wee 'uns get better soon.

Cheers,
Mark.

Not sure where that would be mate, if not on the finished product, I haven't seen it, then not sure where it would be. I've had TV for about the past three weeks which is the only three weeks I've had it in my life! Watch the odd DVD now and again but don't have the patience to sit through hours of TV which, for the most part, seems to be pretty lame these days.

Cheers,
Mark.

Hi all,
It's been a while. Having taken a hiatus from filming to get a small company going in Bali it's now time to pick up the fins and dust off the mask.

No longer working in the realm of resort videography I am now looking to develop my own productions. Having been involved of late with a number of higher profile projects I prefer to look at exploring more the avenue to develop ideas and projects that have been bounding around the narcose flooded cavity that sits atop my shoulders.

With a child on the way, expected to arrive stage center on November 17th, and a newly opened photographic gallery here in Bali I'm also venturing into theproduction of surf and splash housings for digital cinema cameras. Our first housing is currently in protoype production and will be for the Blackmagic Design Cinema Camera. Our second housing will start production in late November and will target the RED Epic line.

Exciting times indeed.

Cheers,
Mark.


#277804 Tips to keep water from gathering on the lens port

Posted by CamDiver on 16 March 2011 - 12:16 AM

The secret revealed:

Potato's, pure and simple. Someone mentioned a while back about spitting seems to provide best results after eating french fries. Connected? I'm hitting the surf most days now and have started rubbing a freshly cut potato onto the port about 20 minutes before hitting the water. Let it dry and off I go. It maintains a thin film of water on the port after emerging from the water for about a solid minute. This deteriorates in duration with the extended time in the water.

Spuds guys, that's the answer.

Cheers,
Mark.


#257737 Tips to keep water from gathering on the lens port

Spit, Spit and more Spit. I've been dunking a Liquid Eye housing with a trusted old 400d. Thus far working just with a flat port, have just collected the 15mm Fisheye and will pick up the dome on Monday. I was too instructed on the nose or ear oil method by a 14 year surf photo veteran, the owner of Liquid Eye. This is to be done at the beginning of the session and whenever you feel it needs repeating. I have just been using spit most of the time. I normally give it a good coating prior to the session and then let it dry in the sun. When I first get in I clean the port and keep it under water. Every time I shoot once I then give a little spit and rub it over and then kepe the housing in the water and lift it out only when I have a shot coming. I find I have about ten or so seconds before the water film starts to disintegrate across the port. Long enough to get the shot at least.

Cheers,
Mark.
