#389180 Panasonic GH5 first dive

Posted by lutfu on 08 November 2017 - 02:07 AM


The lady is going to try the world record of 112 meters at 12th of November and i just filmed the practice with a gh5.

Coming from gh4 i found the gh5 also an amazing camera,especially the is works perfect...

But  i still couldn't get rid of  the purplish color when i film wide angle in blue water....With gh4 i had the same issue but in time i kind of managed to get satisfactory blue color , but with this one even im trying to do same setings that i was doing with gh4 ,like combinations of wb, hue, saturation , photo style...it doesnt seem like it is working good....İ hope in time i can manage...İ also noticed the screen shows a lot more purple than the wiewfinder...Do you have the same issues about the  color of the blue water

Thanks and regards

#382308 the river story

Posted by lutfu on 16 March 2017 - 07:03 AM

Wow amazing place and beautiful shots!

I should come in turkey someday.

It's not your GH4, isn'it?


We have a similar place South of Rome unfortunately without so many fishes. It's a karst lake who flows in a river:






Trouts reproduce in this part of the year and we dive down the river trough a ripping current. We leave one car 3 KM downstream and we get carried away with the camera in our hands.

I have a lot of shots never published. You are making me want to edit something.

Some years ago I just published a teaser and nothing more... time time time...




So nice David thanks for posting and yes the places are really similar

You are right the camera is Sony hvr z1...Actualy i filmed this  4 yrs ago and for some reason i wanted to edit again...

I had to walk in the bushes and in the mud with a big chunky z1 housing also.......but still miss it tough..

#380269 Panasonic LUMIX GH5 for underwater video

I know it is impossible but it would be good at least if  we could put our gh4 into the gh5 housing if we cant do the opposite ;)

#378571 Vimeo Vs Youtube in 2017

Posted by lutfu on 08 November 2016 - 07:17 AM

İ agree from a to z what you have written here

In fact i stopped my pro account last month with vimeo and than they started to send me offers like 15 percent cheaper.for the same account..may be it was a campaign but i didnt like it that i have been offered cheaper options for something i have been paying for years

 And once i quit the pro account and became regular member they  deleted some of my movies  as well  (not deleted but they are not visible in my movies anymore   I HOPE)

plus, one of my movies have about  8 000 000 clicks on it but i havent benefit it at all , i always wonder if it was in you tube would i be paid for clicks after a certain amount???

Posted by lutfu on 11 August 2016 - 11:22 AM

Hello DB

Actually although You tube seems to be a better option for me also i cant make myself switch to it for some reason ,,,

I couldnt notice somethng major at the sceneries but may be because im using an old laptop with a screen putting not much detail  in,,will check on tv,,

About the lens i mostly shot those with a panasonic 7 14   and the sea horse was wıth olympus 12 50 with a +5 saga diopter and the octopus was with a panasonic 14 42 II

untill last year if we see a turtle on a dive it would be a mirracle but last 2 years we have bays like 10 of them in one place....we dont know what has changed but should be researched,,,,may be next year you start to see them also,,,,
