#319717 GoPro experiences & tips

Posted by Dupsbear on 02 November 2012 - 06:15 AM

Good report Ken and thanks!

I just returned from Cozumel using the GoPro 2 with a Backscatter modified housing. All sequences shot on the widest setting, using a URPro underwater filter.

My lighting was 2 of the new Underwater Kinetics eLED Aqualites, mostly used on full power. These lights, as reviewed on Wetpixel, give 90 degree coverage each with no hot spots. I will not go without using these tiny lights if possible.

The camera was mounted above one of my Nexus DSLR housing arms and the Aqualites were mounted, one each, under my 2 strobes. With the LCD back, filming and framing was a breeze; this is another must have for serious video recording.

My final video was rendered on Sony Vegas Pro.

This is my first time to add a video link, so I hope it works. If not, my YouTube channel name is also Dupsbear; the video is named, Cozumel 12.
