  1. Nicely done! Highlight roll off in some shots is clipping but that might be the youtube compression. What picture profile did you use?
  2. So at least for the deep clips it is the auto white balance that changes the hue. The shallow clips are affected by the direction of the sunlight. Thanks for the answers! They are the same hue as the magic filters. I got the original magic filters and then did some research and found the same hues (blue and green water) in Lee filters. I attach them between the WWL1 and flat port. Oman (Musandam) this time of year is blue green based on past experience.
  3. I wasn't clear enough sorry. Look how the colour changes from the frame at 0:36 to the frame 0:37. These are both shot using no filters and only the lights without ambient filters if I got it right. But the hue of the blue colour changes so its either in post or different settings in camera? Second part look at the frame on 2:39 and the frame at the end of 2:40 and beyond. These are no filters no lights and custom white balance? Did you custom white balance before shooting each of the scenes or did one at this depth range and used this one? Sorry for the many questions just trying to understand. I ll be on a 3 day trip this weekend on the North of Oman, water there is blue green this time of year so if you want me to run any tests let me know. I don't have ambient filters for the lights but I do have green and blue water filters that I can stick to the lens even during the same dive.
  4. Good write up. FYI Divepro now has blue and green filters for their lights for whoever wants to use them. Quick question, on the Tarifa video there is big difference on the hue of blue color (despite the shots being shot at the same depth range with the same method) eg some shots on the deeper part of the video and some shots in the shallows in the end. Any idea why?

  6. Could not agree more. So in my mind the way i interpret it is: too much trouble for questionable or marginal better results. Now if you add on the light filters then its even more trouble. But that is me, others have their opinion.
  7. Agreed and my mistake for using the word "hype". I should have used the word "trend". Apologies English are not my native language. Agreed we are all after the same end result. What I am trying to say is that whatever benefit you get from the filters is lost if you think about their overall cost, overall limitations and the added complication of putting them on and off. Now if you know that you will spend the dive at a specific location, a specific time, at specific depth etc etc etc then yes. But how many dives like that is the general diving/filming population does? .30 to .37 is strange, its blue around the fishes and green in the area the fishes are. Cant understand it especially since it is not corrected. Anyway looking forward to the trip and the beers.
  8. First of all please don't get offended and "aggressive" we all do our hobby here, right? Sorry watching it through you tube on a 5K imac screen i don't see anything that cant be achieved without filters if you know your way around it. I can see some pretty bad color at the center of the frame from 0.30 to 0.37 Filters are not new that is for sure. The combination of camera filter combined with blue filters on the light is "new". Then let's forget 10bit, 12 bit, 14bit files and raw and lets go back to 8bit low bitrate files and filters.... problem solved... I don't know why Mustard and co does it I know why the cinematographers of series like Blue Planet don't do it. Anyway hope we somehow meet in a trip someday and talk about it over beers. Cheers
  9. Not really, look at dreilfish videos. Filters help? Yes under the right conditions. More trouble than what you get in the end? IMHO yes. Modern 10 bit 4-2-2 files give the flexibility to bring the footage where you want, when it is well captured and in shallow water (max 9 to 12 m depending on the sun position, water clarity, water color etc) without filters. Deeper its just you, your camera and your lights ))) I think this red camera, blue light filter is the new underwater video, photo hype. Something similar to Luts.
  10. Do you think you could get the same results without filters or no?
  11. You can...have a look at Davinci Resolve and FCPX video editing sofware. One time payment, free upgrades. Resolve has even a free version of it which is 80% of the paid version. Anyway i dont mind paying for something that works... ON1 doesnt
  12. I only use it for photo editing but like i said i dont like it. On of that you have to pay to update the software to the newer version even if you only had it for few months.
