#393109 Some simple tips for better underwater video

Posted by Roo on 08 March 2018 - 07:03 PM

I wrote a blog on my website with a few simple tips that hopefully will help any underwater video shooters out there. I learnt them right at the start of my career, so they are mostly aimed at newbies I guess, but I still find them useful today, after 17 years of filming underwater. 


Five Simple tips to improve your underwater video

#343880 Sipadan Barrier Reef dive video

Posted by Roo on 27 February 2014 - 07:01 PM

Hi Roo, is ScubaJunkie the dive operator that goes there? Thinking of going back home to KK next March and pay a visit to Sipadan, probably stay at Kapalai. Been to Sipadan twice, haven't seen the barracuda tornado yet, and certainly not manta ray!


Oh, Sipadan Barrier Reef doesn't need permit does it? Kind of bored with Mabul so I want to go some place with more reef.



Yes ScubaJunkie is the operator that goes there. They've had some great mobula encounters there with large schools sometimes. No Permit needed :)

Here's the second of our short, sweet, 60 second edits. Shot by Simon Enderby on Sony PMW-EX1R in a Gates housing with SWP-44C aspheric port. Feedback welcome as always.



#336654 Sipadan in 60 seconds

Posted by Roo on 04 September 2013 - 05:31 PM

We've been working on a few edits for our Scubazoo YouTube channel recently. One thread we're going to develop is the '60 second' style. We'll be posting a new video on YouTube every week featuring either a different location, animal, or theme. This is our first attempt, and an obvious choice given we are based nearby. In the edit queue are Maldives, East Timor, Komodo and a few others. The footage was taken from our stock footage library  and the bulk of it was shot using the outstanding Sony EX1 and Gates housing combination. 


It would be great to hear feedback or (constructive) criticism. If anyone has any suggestions for '60 second' themes I'd be happy to hear them. You can subscribe to our channel here. Hope this video brings back good memories for anyone who has been to Sipadan or maybe inspires people to visit for the first time. Best watched in 1080P.
