In Topic: 7D Baseline Video choices

reading up on what people are saying about settings etc - and noticing that Philip Bloom comes up in the conversation now and again - I'm wondering when someone will do a Technicolor Cinestyle review for underwater use for WetPixel?

My problem is that I don't have a housing for my 7D :) otherwise I'd be out there doing it now...

From what I read about Cinestyle, it provides a higher dynamic range and flattens out the picture in general - allowing your post software more control, kind of... in layman's terms :)

Anyone played around with it, yet?

In Topic: Supermacro video from Fury Shoals in Egypt

Hi all...

Here's a set of super macro shots from Fury Shoals in Egypt, March 2011.
Used the SubSee +5 diopter in front of my Light & Motion BlueFin Pro housing.

Nice stuff Henrik - I've always had a thing for close-up macro... I love the almost-abstract parts of clams and suchlike... great acropora crab footage - that stuff is hard to shoot in the daytime, eh?!

You've picked out some incredible detail on the rhinophores of the wart slug!! Great lens evidently! (....and good job with keeping the frame as stable as you did on such levels of magnification.)

the shallow DOF gives a lovely feel... it'd be great if you could slowly shift your focus during the shot... do you have the means to do that on your housing?

I've added the video to my u/w videos group on Vimeo if that's alright?

All the best and keep up the lovely work!

Thanks for the replies.
As far as the stability goes, I Think part of my problem was the fact that my rig is not weighted properly. The dome port wants to float up, while the back goes down. I think that if I can get that a little better, it will help with the stability. I just dont know how to do it yet. Do you think this will help?

Waterworks, the first tune is actually 2 songs that kind of blend together. It is angels and airwaves. The album is I-empire. The songs are "star of bethlehem" and "true love".

Thanks for the headsup on the music...

RE bouyancy - there should be some posts in here regarding exactly that topic... I can't think of many pro shooters out there who haven't adapted their rig in one way or another, in order to help their shoot. A slightly negative bouyancy is nice for sitting in the hands - but not so great if you drop it (use a lanyard if you're not already :) )

great base skills to start from there...

I mirror Wagsy's words about stability (it's generally one of the most important characteristics of u/w videos than can either make, or break a shot)

Love the 1st tune - what is it?
