  1. Thanks Kraken de Mabini! Appreciate your comments. I may make the next one with longer cuts.
  2. Thanks. I think the kelp forest in the video was south Vancouver Island near Victoria. However, you can find kelp forests closer at Salt Creek on the peninsula.
  3. Thanks. Hope you're swimming with mantas and whale sharks right now!
  4. A few others have mentioned the short clips. It's kinda like Billy Joel's song "We didn't start the fire". You have to slow it down to figure out what he's saying in the fast parts. :-) I'm not much help about real estate on the Islands. I can say a few of my favorite dive sites are on the south side of Lopez Island. :-)
  5. Thanks! Wow, I bet the marine life was much more abundant back in the 70s. I hope you're still diving!
  6. Thanks hyp. I put the full gear list in the YouTube description but used these lenses on a GH5: M.Zuiko Digital ED 60mm f/2.8 Macro Lens M.Zuiko ED 8mm F1.8 Fisheye PRO and Nauticam port M.Zuiko Olympus MZ ED 7-14 f/2.8 PRO and Nauticam port M.Zuiko ED 12-50mm f3.5-6.3 EZ and Nauticam port
  7. The cold waters of the Salish Sea contain many beautiful and colorful marine creatures. With the world in challenging shape this past year, I feel fortunate to be able to visit them every now and then. Here's a compilation of various visits throughout the pacific northwest. Comments and critiques welcomed.
  8. I had video lights, but opted for ambient light and custom white balance. The speed at which the animals appear and disappear make it difficult to be prepared with appropriate settings and turning lights on/off. 10k lumens will probably be the minimum needed if going that route.
  9. In November I managed to steal an adventure from and otherwise difficult 2020. After getting Covid-19 tested, keeping a temperature log and donning two masks, I ventured to the Socorro Islands for the first time with the GH5 on the Solmar V. I head read all the report of camera housings getting taxed going through customs, but we got the green light when tapping the button and all was good! Spent 8 days aboard the Solmar V with masked crew and divers. The crew was happy to be back at sea again after being shut down for months. I was happy to be back in warm water. Below is the video of the adventure.
  10. I'm using a tripod. The Nauticam GH5 ball mounts with the xit404 tripod legs.
  11. Cool, it's always fun to upgrade. Except for the learning curve! ;^)
