  1. Thanks. I'll try to use channel mixers less. Guess I'll just have to start doing a proper white balance.
  2. Thanks. Yes, it is a bit purple. I must be less heavy handed on adding red.
  3. I'm using Final Cut which has many different colour controls. Let's just say that colour grading is an area of continual exploration for me.
  4. Firstly, many thanks for taking time to critique my video. It is much appreciated. - Silence at the start of the video. I have used sound effects at the start of my videos in one or two of my prior videos. It remains as a quirk of my videos. - Copyright text. I could alter position, opacity, size, font, etc. Ultimately, a matter of taste and will never suite everyone so it is what it is. - Colour grading. it is something that I struggle with continually, and would like to improve upon. On area that I'm struggling with in particular is matching the colour of the sea between different clips. As an example, there were 5 clips of the barracuda in the video and I had difficulty keeping the sea colour consistent. The 5 clips were recorded on 5 different dives - different time of day, different depth, different part of the reef, and different aspect. The video below shows the uncorrected video on the left, and the corrected video on the right. http:// https://youtu.be/fpTVQ3IgQ6Y I'd be grateful for pointers on how I could improve the colour grading in general, and match the colour of the sea in particular. Thanks
  5. Thanks. Sipadan has resident schools of jacks, bumpheads and barracuda.
  6. Please feel free to critique my latest video. https://youtu.be/w-z5s0JihYQ
  7. I used a GH5, Panasonic 14-42 lens, and the WWL-1 dome.
  8. Thanks. It is one of my favourite dive destinations.
  9. Please feel free to critique my August 2020 video of Sipadan. https://youtu.be/sfEMiemyXTU
  10. Thanks for the tip on lights. I am aware of the various internet resources on colour correction. Will have a chat with you about editing and the entire colour correction process when I am on one of your courses.
  11. You are most welcome. The corals at Sipadan will never be outstanding given the large school of hungry bumpheads and abundant turtles, but there certainly is marine life there. Diving with a school of barracuda numbering over 1,000 was truly memorable.
  12. Interceptor, Thanks. There is a learning curve and I know that there is still lots for me to learn. One day I'll try to find time for one of your classes. I carry two Keldan 4X attached to float arms on either side of the camera, plus a Big Blue Black Molly II mounted on the cold shoe. WK
  13. Brant, Thank you for your extremely kind words. We share the same passion. Enjoy Bali. WK
  14. Please feel free to critique my latest video from Sipadan, Mabul and Kapalai. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tpHOVN395WE&feature=youtu.be
  15. Thanks for the critique. The GH5 is definitely a step up from the RX100VA. I'll work on trying to brighten the images.

  17. Flat port. I did not have my dome with me on that trip.
  18. For the manta clip, I was on aperture priority and, if I recall correctly, aperture was set to f7.1 whilst shooting at 14mm. If I were to focus at 2m, everything from about 1m to infinity should have been in focus because of the depth of field. Perhaps I should just lock the focus at about 2m on aperture of f7.1 for my general wide angle shots.
  19. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gWULjjPuDbQ try this one
  20. https://studio.youtube.com/video/gWULjjPuDbQ/edit In the video above, shot with a GH5 and 14-42 lens in AFC mode, there is a manta swimming directly towards me. The camera goes focus hunting a number of times. What settings can I employ to minimise focus hunting? Thanks
