  4. Best for CFWA and macro video. Ideal companion for compact and small mirrorless cameras as well as Olympus TG-3 / TG-4 / TG-5 / TG-6 Specifications here https://lightandmotion.com/products/sola-video-pro-3800 Used intermittently for 3 years. Used it sparingly periodically for 3 years. Always thoroughly demineralized, never dropped or repaired Technically good working condition. I continue to dive with these lights sometimes. There are some scuffs and traces of use - see the photos attached Sale reason: I have 4 pairs of video lights and I don't need that much anymore... Set: torches with ball mount + original chargers. Price per pair = US$ 400, do not sell separately Custom improvement: rings with 62mm threads are glued to the head parts, which allows you to attach hoods, reflectors, light filters, etc. Optional: two aluminium hoods with custom made blue-green filters for shooting video in the daytime at a depth of 10-25 meters at a price of US$ 50 per pair The batteries are in excellent condition, tomorrow I will test how long they work in each of the modes and write in the comments At night, they are ideal not only for shooting videos but also as a search light List of shortcomings: - glued plastic plug of the charger, it has been working perfectly for more than a year - the slider switch on first light does not slide back as smoothly as on the second light, you have to follow it - some abrasions and scratches PS This model is without side internal LEDs. The state of charge is indicated by the light of the main upper LEDs Video light now in the Philippines, 20-25 days shipping with track number at $ 45-65 depending on the country Bayer pays shipping cost and bank/paypal fee I will add video tomorrow

  7. Here is my first video using Sony camcorder HXR-NX80 taken during the last diving trip in Philippines this August: https://youtu.be/XZ2JvM6JXkI I have not mastered this camera yet, and on a few occasions I inadvertently used wrong settings (i.e. the internal ND filter was on on a few dives). Also, playing with different settings and filters resulted in some color inconsistencies between different clips. While I am still trying to master this camera, I will greatly appreciate constructive criticism and recommendations. The following equipment was used to make this video: Camera: Sony camcorder HXR-NX80 Housing: Gates AX700 / Z90 with Gates GP34A Wide Angle Port and internal UR Pro Red Filter (on most dives) and UR Pro Pink Filter (on a few dives) Tripod: Gates Tripod Diopters: SAGA +5 Diopter Achromatic Close-Up Macro Lens, and SAGA +10 Diopter Achromatic Close-Up Macro Lens Video Lights: Keldan Video 8X 11,000 Lumen CRI 92 (5400K) with Keldan Ambient Filter M1 (10-20m) for 4X/8X Camera Settings: 4K, 30 FPS, Picture Profile: BT709. I followed the following article for recommended camera settings: AX700-Z90-Housing-Recommended-Settings-R2.pdf In my decision to buy this camera and housing, I followed an advise from Juan Monterey, who convinced me through his articles that this Sony camcorder is one of the best cameras for underwater videography: http://wetpixel.es/mi-actual-equipo-submarino/ As I am shooting only videos, I found many advantages of going with this camcorder and the Gates housing, including but not limited to the following: No need to carry several lenses. With one wide angle dome and diopters you could shoot wide angle and macro on the same dive. Very good and fast auto focus Very easy (one-button touch) white balance setup. Ability to use HLG - Hybrid Log Gamma (In the future for me) Battery is good for four dives (about 4 hrs) One things that puzzled me with this Gates housing is providing a control knob for ND filters, as I have never been in a situation yet when there is too much light under water. Maybe someone could enlighten me about this. For all footage above water I was using iPhone X. Hope to hear your comments and recommendations on how to improve my videos. Many thanks and cheers.
  8. Just got back from a 10-day trip to Mike's Dauin Beach Resort in Dumaguete, Philippines. My brother and I went for the muck diving, as well as a day excursion to the marine sanctuary around Apo Island, about an hour's boat ride from the resort. In short, the muck diving is fantastic, and the reefs around Apo Island are spectacular - easily rivaling Sipadan's wall. Even though it wasn't octopus season, which is in February, we nevertheless met numerous species on every dive. All the coastal Dauin dives are no more than 3 to 5 minutes away, so you suit up the minute you get on board because by the time you're done, you're at your dive site. Apo Island is worth the extra cost: that reef is on steroids. So much life, and everything is huge! My gallery is at https://www.scubagirl.ca/dumaguete-philippines The diving is mostly boat-based. The dive team handles all your gear for you. All you need to do is make the 30-second walk from your room or dining area to the boat, which is tied up right off the beach. As with elsewhere in the Philippines, the dive boats are all bancas, which are custom-built boats with outriggers. These boats are super stable. Mike's fleet of two are large enough to spaciously accommodate 10 or more divers. From North America, get yourself to Manila, connect with a domestic flight to Dumaguete, less than 90 min from Manila. Beware that flights to and from Dumaguete tend to be delayed. On our trip, we experienced a 3 hour delay, causing us to miss our connecting flight from Manila to Singapore. If you go, plan for the delay! The resort is owned by Mike Feeney, who is based in Florida, I believe. The resort itself is well managed by Corrie, a British transplant, and supported by her partner and fellow Brit Jonathan, who manages the PADI training for guests who need it. The dive guides are TOP NOTCH! The kitchen is not particularly well set up, so service is slow, but the food is good - good enough that villagers and guests from other resorts will often go there to eat. The kitchen staff know they're slow, so they compensate for that by asking you for your order before you go diving. 10/10 would go again!
  9. Tail fin differs from typical "definitive" Two-Spot Wrasse tail, though Popp's Images has one photo with this more fan-like tail. I cannot find any other wrasse as close. Can anyone help?

  13. Here is the video from my recent voyage to the Tubbataha reserve in the Philippines. I have been diving for 20 years, and this the most amazing dive trip I have ever experienced. (Make sure to select 4K resolution, if your monitor supports that) https://youtu.be/n54kRn3IazQ Enjoy, Basil

  18. Hello all, I was fortunate to get my hands on a 1dx mark II a few weeks ago, along with an underwater housing for it. Did a last minute trip to the Philippines to test this out. It is a short video, and I did a mix of macro and wide angle. I used the 100mm F2.8L and some shots with a +10 diopter on it. For Wide angle I used the 16-35mm F4L. Make sure to choose 4k on the playback options. Or Vimeo I severely underestimated what the move to 4k was going to bring. The amount of resources both from a speed and storage standpoint is massive. After 40 dives, I came back with about 3.5TB worth of data. Almost all of these shots were shot 4k and 60p, played back at 30p. Let me know what you think! Enjoy, Dustin
  19. I wanted to share a short film I made recently. Back in October, I was lucky enough for it to be selected to be shown at the San Diego Undersea Film Expo. It seems that most underwater films are very similar now days. So I wanted to challenge myself to do something a little different. Earlier this year, a young artist, named Nick Carro approached me to ask my permission to draw an image from one of my films that had an octopus in it. I was flattered, but had one condition...that was for him to show me the final piece. Not only did produce an amazing piece of art, but he also filmed himself doing it. He was kind enough to allow me to use some of his footage to make this film. This is different.....and I am curious to know what people think of it. It was a very difficult to edit, but I think it turned out pretty good. Let me know what you think. Enjoy! Dustin Or Youtube
  20. Does anyone have any have any recommendations of PADI instructor training centres around Asia, specifically in Sri Lanka, Maldives, Indonesia, Malaysia or Philippines? I am also hoping to dive somewhere nice and keep costs relatively low... Many thanks!!
  21. The first and second workshops were a huge success, so we're headed back to Crystal Blue Resort in Anilao from March 2-12, 2016. Hope you can join us for some of the best critter diving in the Philippines. You can view some of the images from the 2nd workshop here: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.930857840295029.1073741825.122733201107501 For more information please visit our website: http://underwatercolours.com/anilao_photo_workshop.html Contact Bonnie Pelnar for more information.
  22. Here are some of our favorite Anilao dive sites... Coconut, Arthurs, Daryl Laut, Bethlehem, etc. Shot via drone this May. Aerial Views of Anilao Enjoy this new perspective on our favorite macro destination in the Philippines!
  23. Hi Guys, Here is my latest work, a mini documentary on the Tubbataha Reefs in the Philippines. Warning: If you haven't been there, this video may cause you to instantly whip out your credit card and book a trip for next season. Tubbataha reminded my of Sipadan back in the good ol' days. Maybe even better. Fantastic diversity, huge schools, sharks and turtles everywhere, pristine corals and, on some days, visibility up to 100 meters! It's remoteness and short season helps but the Philippine government is doing a good job policing the park's "zero take" policies. Enjoy: http://www.peterwalker.com/tubbataha.html Regards Peter
