BMPC 4k clip shot in a custom housing
thani posted a topic in Video Gear and TechniqueHi, I have been working on a custom housing which was designed by me and executed by a workshop in Dubai which I will share the details later In a couple of dives I wanted to test the new housing and firmware 1.9. Let me know what you think. It was a drift dive that made it quite challenging so I used stabilization in resolve 11 for few shots. The clip is rendered at FHD. I will try to post a 4k version on you youtube, any advice on what's the best setting? I am using Resolve 11
Black Magic Production Camera underwater footage
thani posted a topic in Video Gear and TechniqueHi, Finally got time to play with Davinci Resolve and produced some footage. This video is underwater test for Black Magic Production Camera BMPC 4k. It was shot by me in a custom housing. It is all shot with ambient light - no artificial lighting was used. Visibility was not good due to plankton and particles. Not really a favorable test conditions The video was captured in 4 dives into 2 different seas.One dive was done in the Arabian gulf (first clip) and the rest are done in the Gulf of Oman. It is hard to color match two characteristically different seas but I tried I ended loving this camera due to two factors: Crisp details at 4k & Global Shutter. There is something magical about the movement/motion the global shutter captures. Or at least that is what I imagine Despite the "noise" people are making around the Fixed Pattern Noise, the last clip of the clown fish is shot just at sunset and I did a simple noise reduction on it and I believe it is useful. This is before the 1.9 firmware release which makes the camera better at noise handling. When coupled with a fast lens, this camera in the right hands can make magic The video is broken into3 clips divided by surface shots of land/mountain scenes as follows: + All the clips are shot using Sigma 18-35mm 1.8 lens + All clips but second clip (barge wreck) are recorded in ProRes using firmware earlier than 1.8 + Second clip is recorded using firmware 1.8 and recorded in RAW Rendering was done at full HD using Davinci Resolve. Make sure you play the FULL HD version.
Sony NEX-FS700 housing project
thani posted a topic in Video Gear and TechniqueHi there, Sultan, my friend, has insisted on buying the FS700 despite my repeated advice not to buy hence he has the FS100 already.And knowing him, I knew what was coming next: The footage was taken in Fujairah, UAE on Sept 15, 2012 and was edited in Edius 6 by me. I am using a Sony EX1 camera in a sealux housing with either a falt port or a wide angel phathom lens. Music: "when" by Stephan Siebert (http://www.myspace.com/stephansiebert) This housing is modified for Sony NEX-FS700 and is based on the NEX FS100 housing which was originally made for the Sony HDTV X7 by http://www.sealux.de Here is the link for the FS100 video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0e03kTp3MCk My friend initially has modified the housing to fit the the FS100 and now he has modified it further to fit the new FS700. The major modification is done to the lens so it can a accommodate the longer new Sony E-mount lens. The FS700 offers high video quality, super slow motion and great low light capability - a feature that is highly sought by underwater videographers. This was a test dive for the housing and my friend is planning a dive trip to shoot a short video with the this setup in the 2 - 3 weeks and a link will be published for the same. We believe this is the first Sony NEX-FS700 that has been taken under water. We will share our experience on such a setup on this thread. Please note we are not associated with Sealux nor we have been asked by Sealux to do this project. Regards, Thani
