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
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?
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 )
