#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..

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???

#376008 Slow motion from Mediterranean

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,,,,

#372241 A question about footage requirement

Posted by lutfu on 05 April 2016 - 06:49 AM

one of the leading tv companies has asked to use my footage in a program and to interview me also. Any idea what sort of price i should ask. Or would they expect it to be without charge. i have no idea.

#371919 Emergency replacement Sony Z100 in Lembeh?

Posted by lutfu on 27 March 2016 - 01:46 AM


Sorry to hear that your equipment flooded

I havent been to those places so i dont know the distances between the places but there should be a dive resort called papua explorers in raya ampat and the phone number is +62 822-4814-8888    

and the owners name is Tunc    he used to film with a canon xh a1 in a gates housing...i dont know if that suits you or if he is renting it out but if you want you can speak to him ...may be he helps in an other way

good luck
