  1. It was in the back of the cam and i had to dive through a door wide gap between two icebergs [emoji45] globaldivemedia.com
  2. 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
  3. Thank you! I wanted to do more underwater time lapse actually, but due the weather change it was not possible anymore globaldivemedia.com
  4. Thank you! You are right [emoji6] globaldivemedia.com
  5. 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.
  6. Simply amazing! i love blackwater pics! thanks for sharing!
  7. 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
  8. Thank you! Its all manual focus. Maybe i moved the cam backwards a bit? globaldivemedia.com
  9. Thank you! [emoji846] globaldivemedia.com
  10. Thank you! Really? Good to know [emoji6] globaldivemedia.com
  11. 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
  12. 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.

  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. Hi, Heres a short video from a 6 days livaboard tour around the Channel Islands. You can watch it on utube or on vimeo. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/IiRaKUElo5I Alex
  16. ...i know what you are talking about.I have a Manfrotto D1 aviator backpack within the weight limits (almost), + a very small shoulder bag for lenses + a so called "banana bag" (the one you strap around your hips. So i disguise 16kg. globaldivemedia.com
  17. Thank you!All the gear i used is at the end of the video. You are right, its a flathead mayfly. I did two WA with fisheye and one macro dive. The next time i will concentrate more one macro. The "fly" at the end is a water bug globaldivemedia.com
  18. Got it! Its a Flathead mayfly nymph
  19. Thank you for the links! The critter looked more like the one from the youtube link, with the gills on the end. globaldivemedia.com
  20. Hi, i spent a couple of days in Switzerland. I wanted to dive a mountain lake, but the road was still closed, so we end up in the river Maggia. If anyone has an idea of the strange critter in the video (the same critter is at the end of the video with a fly!!!) please tell me. I also posted in the Critter ID here on WP. Watch what Maggia is like: https://youtu.be/_bsIOvnkBuE Alex
  21. Hi, what is this or what is it going to transform? I have found this, about 5mm small critter, on a river dive in Switzerland. on the next day i have found another one twice as big. The pic is a screenshot from a video i took from the 5mm one. the critter in action: or here https://youtu.be/_bsIOvnkBuE Alex
  22. Very interesting! Thanks for sharing! Gesendet von meinem GT-I8200 mit Tapatalk
  23. F 5!? Wow! Lucky one! I dont even think about to set below f8/10 with the 7-14 on my setup. (blurred edges)
  24. Very interesting. thx! I wished the shots were longer and more. What was your F stop with the 7-14mm??
  25. My solution a Manfrotto Aviator D1 drone backpack. Its very light, cheap, padded and very comfortable to carry on the back. Simply Manfrotto quality. Its 8-10 kg packed. (With housing) The blue divider is DIY. I dont want to mix up the gear with the housing and i can unpack/pack the housing much quicker. I often remove the housing while checking in. The brown bag is loaded with lenses, cam, a.s.o. The small black is for drone and Keldan batteries.
