  1. i have sent a payment request on 5. december. No wire transfer so far. I just wrote an urgency. Usually the pay after an urgency.
  2. It was in the back of the cam and i had to dive through a door wide gap between two icebergs [emoji45] globaldivemedia.com
  3. Hi Davide, A typical setting should be with a long exposure of a few seconds (as i did on land) though i did the underwater time lapse with only 1/10. With longer exposure the time lapse become much smoother when objects are moving. I used the internal GH5 time lapse mode. I switched off any settings which i did not need, like IBIS, to get more shots. I got more than 2 1/2 hours out of the battery. The tide time lapse interval was 20sec the iceberg 8sec. The cam almost got ran over by an iceberg, it was only half a meter away. [emoji15] I used a 4sec exposure for my latest Autumn At The White Sea video seastar time lapse. If you are interested you can watch two full length time lapse on my IG account @globaldivemedia Alex globaldivemedia.com
  4. Thank you! I wanted to do more underwater time lapse actually, but due the weather change it was not possible anymore globaldivemedia.com
  5. Thank you! You are right [emoji6] globaldivemedia.com
  6. Hi, a video from my 2nd winter stay at East Greenland. We dove in the fjord in front of Tasiilaq. My plan for this video was to capture the elemental force in this region. I wanted to show time lapses of moving ice during the tides, under- and above water, and mix impressive icebergs with macro footage. A big thank you to Sven from Northern Explorers who supported my ideas and let me do what I wanted! The video is actually in the order as i experienced the trip. As i arrived we still had some left over packice. a few days later the winds brought icebergs in the fjord. After a week hundreds of iceberg right next each other were stranded in a bay. Unfortunately the last week the climate change said hello, and we had unusual warm weather for this time of the season and rain. We can´t went out on the snow mobiles anymore, because all the snow was melted away in only a few days.. And at the dive spots which were in walking distance, the viz droped to 5 meters due the melting water which were washed in the ocean. The video was shot in 7 to 8 days, on 13 dives. Enjoy watching! Alex.
  7. Simply amazing! i love blackwater pics! thanks for sharing!
  8. No back button, no macro mode. I have a zoom gear and this Inon magnet ring to focus. I also use a flip down Saga +10 macro diopter globaldivemedia.com
  9. Thank you! Its all manual focus. Maybe i moved the cam backwards a bit? globaldivemedia.com
  10. Thank you! [emoji846] globaldivemedia.com
  11. Thank you! Really? Good to know [emoji6] globaldivemedia.com
  12. Hi, I want to share my latest video with you In winter I have been at the White Sea in Russia for ice diving and i was curious how the landscape and diving might be the rest of the year. Because i like the indian summer colors i decided to come back in autumn. My plan was to capture the autumn mood at the White Sea and create a story around a leave falling and sinking in the sea. On the spot it turned out that this story is not far-fetched, because leaves constantly flushed by the tides in the sea. So, have fun watching! globaldivemedia.com
  13. Hi, I want to share my video from an Austrian lake with you. It is called Lake Samaranger. It is an amazing dive spot with a mystic scenery and fantastic viz.

  14. hi, i spent 5 days at the north and 5 days at the south pass of Fakarava and dived both with Top Dive. I choosed Top Dive mainly because they offer Nitrox. I was really happy to dive with them in the south, because the divers from Tetamanu finished the dive in the channel at their ressort and missed so up to three groups of reef sharks! The Top Dive Group were swept with the current in a small lagoon. I met many other divers which did island hopping. All were pretty disappointed from Rangiroa, Mooera and some other islands. They also said Fakarava was the best on their trips. I heard good stories from Tikehau. i was happy with my decision to spent 10 days at Fakarava. You might get a better idea if you watch the two videos on my vimeo channel.
  15. Thank you for your comment and the remark! The sea lions and the schooling fish at 1:30 (the fish look really strange, indeed) are shot in variable bitrate. I think this fits the sea lions motion perfect. Everything else is at its original speed - even the Torpedo ray! It has its own variable bitrate built in, it seems
