LOG Footage - Opinions on Underwater Use?

20 August 2015 - 07:17 AM

So with the GH4 looking likely to be getting V-LOG-L (12 Stops) and with the new RX100 IV having S-LOG2


We will have more consumer options for shooting this supposedly nicer to grade footage.


I'm wondering if anyone has shot LOG footage underwater before? (Thinking Blackmagic, Arri, Red)


Wondering if its worth the hassle, if the colour fidelity is better (after post) or if you reverted to a more punchy profile in camera?

Canon Cinema EOS XC10 4K Camera

08 April 2015 - 12:54 AM



Wasn't expecting this feature set:


Internal 4K

4:2:2 (Internal)

305Mbps Bitrate!!!!

5 axis stabilisation


12 Stops of DR


Biggest downside thou is the lens - 27.3mm eqv. :(







Anyone tempted by the E-M5 MK2 for video?

07 April 2015 - 03:07 AM

Someone at the office just got a E-M5 Mk2 and I had a look,


The IBIS is AMAZING - it really was jaw dropping, thought my 12-35mm OIS was good, but gee!!


Sounds like Olympus have upped the Bitrates to 50+ so we are back to GH3 realms in terms of quality.


Thinking that IBIS of this quality would really help underwater with DSLR rigs, with slight movements etc (as I think we can all agree, they aren't as stable or balanced as a camcorder rig from gates etc..)


Uncompressed 422 out of the HDMI too... Filming in 4k is great and it really does provide super 1080, but do think more stable footage would be stellar.


Alas he has gone on holiday so I can't even borrow it to do some side by sides :(


Anyone else taking an interest in it?

Looks like SoundDevices are into Video Recorders now






These look GREAT for underwater, mainly due to the fact that its not all touch screen and there are still lots of physical buttons.


GoPro to YS Adaptor / Clamp?

27 March 2015 - 05:59 AM

I've got a INON Focus Light which is mounted to my tray via a YS Mount (like the Nauticam cold shoe one)


When I'm doing WA video, I was thinking of mounting a GoPro to the same mounting point, however I can't seem to find a GoPro mount to a YS Mount - does such a thing exist?
