DiveFilm HD video on iTunes

07 October 2013 - 12:11 PM

I have not seen any threads on this so I thought I'd share it. If you like underwater videos and use iTunes you owe it to yourself to check out some of the videos, especially the one posted yesterday. The title is "San Diego UnderSea Film Exhibition Entry Excerpts" and it is a must see. All I can say is I would not want to be a judge at that show. My only complaint is that it is way too short for those of us who can't get to San Diego this week.


Find them all in iTunes by searching on "divefilm." They are buried in the Podcast section.


BTW they are produced in association with Wetpixel.


Edit: I just noticed the UnderSea Exhibition Excerpts video is posted on vimeo here (best to enlarge the screen):

Anyone mount an action cam like GoPro to an Ikelite housing?

01 February 2013 - 10:13 AM

I'm interested in adding some video capture to my underwater stills photography. It doesn't look too promising to get a new rig anytime soon so I've been thinking about the addition of a small video setup to my Ikelite/D300 DSLR housing.

Current possibilities are the GoPro Hero3 or 2, or maybe even a Veho Muvi HD. Both cameras come with all kinds of mounts but I don't know if there's one for what I want to do.

Anyone have a solution? An image or link would be great if you've actually done it or seen one out there.

I guess I'm wondering how these super wide-angle cameras can shoot beyond the housing lens port without including it. I don't want to add a lot of height but is there a way to mount the video cam a little forward, either on top or bottom?

In case it needs to be stated, I have no experience with this type of camera and am very open to suggestions. Final product is hopefully a slideshow with a little video for family and friends and maybe posted to youtube.

What the?? File corruption on Wetpixel?

Yesterday I posted a topic titled, "Dolphin seeks diver's help." Today the title is still there, but it is attached to another topic. Something going on at Wetpixel?

Divers Free Dolphins From Line After Dolphin "Asks" For Help

Check out this video showing a dolphin with a hook and line embedded/tangled in one of its pectoral fins, approaching a diver, then waiting patiently while the diver cuts the line and attempts to remove the hook. Kudos to diver Keller Laros and videographer Martina S. Wing. Amazing!
