Do you mean shooting with ambient light? If so, I think that's the red filter for the GoPro I was using at 100 feet. I did some work to color correct it, but it looks like it could use some more tweaking looking at it again.

Yes, I mean the scene shot WITHOUT light.

Interesting subjects you have there. Just a note, most of the scene where you are you shooting with light, there is a noticeable purple color tint to it.

Layang Layang is very expensive, almost 2x the price of Sipadan, and the chances of seeing hammerhead is rare now because they go very deep. The hammer head season in Layang Layang is also unpredictable, some said March, some said April.


BTW, Tip of Borneo has some cool macro dive, at lease from the photos that I saw. Tommy's Place is the only dive operator at Tip of Borneo at the moment.

That's an amazing video! Do you do it professionally? Thanks for the advice, that's great!


Thanks! I don't do it professionally, I'm trying to get to the professional level if I could and may be enter contest. I have passion to teach as well, so may be once I have the proper credential, I might teach UW video as freelance work.

If you want to dive Borneo, Sipadan is the "must go" dive destination. It's not as good as before, but still good. Just a heads up, you may see a lot of mainland Chinese tourists there. There isn't any pelagic diving in Sipadan, the chances of seeing whale shark is very rare. The Barracuda vortex (it's what makes Sipadan famous) is very very rare now. In Sipadan, school of jack fish is quite common, so is bumper head parrot fish. White/black tip sharks are common too, turtle is almost everywhere, in one dive I saw 10 turtles.


If you want to dive in Sipadan, the budget dive operator to use is "Seaventure", they're oil rig turned into dive resort, they have dormitory for people who're on the budget, the food is great. One thing you have to know is when you dive in Sipadan area, you only go to Sipadan 1 or two days, the rest of the trip are diving in Mabul/Kapalai, which is sandy bottom and mostly for macro stuff.


I also recommend switch things up, go dive with "Scuba Tiger", they're budget dive operator in Semporna area, which is 30 minutes away from Sipadan/Mabul/Kapalai. They have dive package that will bring you to east side of Borneo such as Bohey Tulang, PomPom island etc. These area are more for macro diving, but the beach and water are gorgeous. If you stay with Scuba Tiger, food is not included, you have to go eat at a cafe near by, or go to town to buy your own grocery. They have laundry facility, so it's a true budget place.


I came back from my Borneo/Sabah trip in March, here is the video that I made:
