  1. Hi all, After 20 festivals around the Globe our award winning short movie is online now and ready to be watched! Share it as you like and happy new year! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mkROP5wWjM Synopsis: A boat and its working crew in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. a father, a captain, never wanted his boy to work on the sea. The boy finds work in another boat a result of his affection of the sea. The boy learns diving from the cripple Omer, a famous diver working on that boat whom was healthy without a bend then. Time passes the cripple and the boy ends up working on the captain’s boat. There is sponge shortage, dives passes no sponge! Crew is upset and there is frustration among the crew. The tension between the trilogy (captain, the boy & the cripple), drives the viewer into a desolation in the middle of the sea and its bottom.

  5. Dear all, We recently shot a short movie in Bodrum Turkey in July 2013 and editing is finished just a week ago. I have a feeling that many of you might be interested to watch the movie. I try to submit it as many festivals as possible this way people interested and dear colleagues may have chance to watch it in their hometown in a film festival. But as you could appreciate it is very hard to achieve this. If you would like to have the movie in an underwater festival or appropriate platform close to you please don't hesitate to contact me. Here is the trailer of the movie; IRME TRAILER https://vimeo.com/106506540 Synopsis: A boat and its working crew in the middle of the Mediterranean sea. a father, a captain, never wanted his boy to work on the sea. The boy finds work in another boat a result of his affection of the sea. The boy learns diving from Omer 'The cripple' a famous diver working on that boat whom was healthy without a bend then. Time passes the cripple and the boy ends up working on the captain’s boat. There is sponge shortage, dives pass but no sponge! Crew is upset and there is frustration among the crew. The tension between the trilogy (captain, the boy & the cripple), drives the viewer into a desolation in the middle of the sea and the seabed.

  6. thanks a lot for the link Udo, most useful indeed. Now we just need to wait for the uw videos I guess best wishes, mert
  7. yeah I looked at the discussion here on the advertisement movie for the camera but its such a big production and its not providing sufficient answers for me. I just need to see more user videos online to be able to understand the abilities. The shutter, aperture ISO adjustments are always great to have it together with two card slots, HDMI and voice recording. In comparison some of the aspects are even better than MKIII but thats in theory. Canon has been producing good quality video cameras for ages and i so want to believe that Nikon achieved that too. I am sure about the quality should have no problem on that respect. MKII has found itself in the market with the low budget filming productions all around the world. Nikon had to give an answer to that. My question is : how efficient is their answer???
  8. Hey guys, I am planning on changing my d300s ikelite system with d800 but I have two questions in mind. I used d300 and d300s happily shot hundred thousands of pictures but its time to pass to full frame with better quality lenses and i really need the full HD video ability. I am using a Sony EX-1 totally love it but it is many times tiring to carry that weight around besides I am willing to do some macro videos with d800 ad it will be a good back up. - How good and satisfactory of the video quality of d800 compared to Canon 5D MKII? - Do you have any idea when ikelite is planning to come up with the new d800? price? cheers, mert http://www.wetbluediary.com
  9. Yeah she is just gorgeous! and I really great personality which makes it even sweeter:))
  10. Hi all, here is something I get together around July 2011 waited for her to break the records. Hope you enjoy it... [vimeohd]32108396[/vimeohd] http://vimeo.com/32108396 Sahika is a talented freediver, recently just broke 2 world records! check her out & support her, I am telling she is just warming up. Divers: Sahika Ercumen & Edhem Dirvana Camera & Edit: Mert Gokalp If you ever end up sailing in Eastern Mediterranean, go & check crystal clear waters of Bozburun, dont forget to visit an excellent seaman Edhem and his great place Bozburun Yatch Club.

  11. just saw this ikelite product for 800 $ back compartment which allows using the video function. thats sneaky, 800 bucks for just pressing the video. i am wondering if there is a way to convert one of the arms inside to press that button
  12. It was actually, more than 30 degrees celcius, but shouldnt be a problem dont you think?
  13. I had this wierd event with my EX1 Gates housing & Greenforce new FIII batteries last month during our new documentary shootings. After the dive, I left the housing in a shady area to dry a bit, rinsed off its fresh water on it. While eating my lunch i heard a heavy explosion sound and a lady running away. I was thinking please not the housing, but yes there it was one of the batteries exploded spilling the battery fluid outside breaking the outer part of the battery. luckily nobody get hurt or it didnt explode while I was working on it. Checking it the night before, there was no signs of water getting in, broken part or corrosive elements. We send the battery and the light to greenforce for an investigation, there is no word yet but hopefully soon i will get my batteries and continue soon. cheers, Mert gokalp Marine Biotechnologist UW Photographer & Videographer http://www.wetbluediary.com
  14. Did anybody tried or using nikon D300s in D300 housing? It seems like some functions wont be available but can you reach the video button? Mert Gokalp Marine Biotechnologist UW Photographer & Videographer http://www.wetbluediary.com
