One of the highlight from my recent trip to Lembeh, Indonesia, was recently discovered Green Hairy Shrimp (not sure it's a variation Phycocaris sp. or completely new species) and other colour variations. It's no bigger then a grain of rice (some of them are more smaller)!

This is not my best footage but I put together some of them from footage of different colour variations of hairy shrimp.

 

Filmed with Canon 7D, 100mm, subsee +10, Sola 1200 lights, SmallHD DP4 field monitor.

Awesome job Eunjae! I have no idea how you where able to get and keep the focus. Were you using the new display setup?

 

Cheers,

Steve

Thanks Steve,

This is my current setup.

Canon 7D and SmallHD DP4 field monitor in Nauticam housing.

So much easier focusing and framing with bright & sharp image on DP4 monitor.

Superb footage. Very steady hands. I tried with my 5DMII & housing before. Its almost impossible to shoot these hairy shrimpies..

 

Good work.

 

Cheers

Congratulations EunJae Im. This is great, and really groundbreaking stuff.

 

The DOF is so shallow. Any way to increase the DOF with that rig? More light and smaller iris perhaps?

 

Also, what tripod did you use?

 

Also, your rig is really tall. I'm wondering if there's a way to mount the monitor lower down, closer to the body.

Really beautiful footage there EunJae, congrats. Never saw those shrimp any of the times I've been to Lembeh. Guess I will have to go back. As Nick said, really tall rig, did that get much getting used to in so far as using the monitor? Loved the music as well.

Great stuff

Steve

Thanks for the inputs everyone,

 

Tripod is XIT 404 bracket and tripod leg with twist clamp kit and it's very easy to adjust.

I don't have problem with monitor postion at all and I really like when low camera postion for macro shooting.

BTW, I love narrow DOF from DSLR. ;)

 

Mikey, most of time I went myself but little green shrimp was by Serge (the Hitler) at NAD lembeh resort. :drink:

Nice video. Would you be so kind as to list the settings? Exposure etc? Thanks.

Hahaha, was big fun diving with you Eun Jae.

 

We have been seeing this green Phycocaris Shrimp now since about half a year, when one of our guides found it for the first time. They have been our "big secret" for a while, but two other resorts are finding them as now as well.

Thanks for Posting EJ.

 

As Serge said, it was a lot of fun having you here. As a side note on this ( to all those people that will now want to find this Shrimp ) EunJae is one of the most gentle (and calm) divers we've had here and i think this comes through in the footage he gets. If you rummage around and push too hard you wont get good images like these.

 

So, on top of all the Kudos, +1 for environmental awareness :D

Very nice EunJae. I am so encouraged by your success and that my setup is almost the same as yours: 7D and NA-7D, Canon 100, INON 330 & 165s, DP4, Aquavolts and XIT404.

 

So far I am using the rig 'hand-held' and will try mounting the DP4 on the rear 1" ball on the XIT404 in order to lower the centre of gravity. I mount the Aquavolts on the left and right balls on the XIT404 for the same reason.

 

Of course, if I were shooting super-macro video, I will need to reconfigure the mounts to be able to use the XIT404 as a tripod mount rather than as it is presently used.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing more of your great work! Tim

Nice setup, Timmoranuk.

I might try DP4 on rear ball for WA shooting, thanks for the idea.

BTW, I really need more powerful light (like your Aquavolts) even for macro video. SOLA 1200 x 2 was not enough when shooting in shallow & bright condition.
