Gopro Dual Hero 3D Thread

Recommended Posts

Yes. I got a tray and that should sort out the stability.

 

I got a question... I have designed the bracket that will allow me to put a hero 4 silver on top.. But my question is to which gopro should I align the H4 silver to.. The main dual Camera on the right or between the two dual Camera?

I don't think it matters, unless you're into extreme macro. I just align to either one and it works out fine.

I'm leaving Cozumel today after 7 days of diving. Somehow- not sure how or why- I got water in one of my 2 Dual housings. Miraculously, one of the cameras survived but one did not. I generally shoot with one Dual set to medium FOV and the other wide. Givin the choice with only one housing, I'll shoot medium, unless I'm doing wrecks. Then wide is preferable. Shooting medium FOV at 2.7K allows easy cropping to narrow while still maintaining true 1080 res. Last year, I had Protune at raw WB but still used GP color setting. This year, color is also set to flat. Much better workflow, IMO. WAY BETTER control in post for adjusting color combined with increased dynamic range. Furthermore, there is clearly less hassle with compensating for the purplish water that can sometimes come from the red filter. In fact, just making some preliminary adjustments on my laptop, this issue now seems to be nonexistant. So, from now on, color will always be set to flat in Protune along with the raw WB.

Barry: How did your Cozumel footage turn out? I'm really sorry to hear that you have had bad luck with one of your housings......the ever present risk of UW housings!!! Ive lost one sony video camera and had a couple of minor floods in Nikonos that I was able to save with fresh water and hair driers, super Lucky!!!!

Other than the camera issue, all went really well. I think I got some of the best 3D footage on this trip I've ever taken. Conditions were great and great scenery and fish were abundant. Some years, I've really had to sift through the clips and do a lot of post processing to come up with enough good content for a 15 minute film. This year may be exactly the opposite. Just so much great 3D material to work with. There may be enough for two films.

 

I'm hoping to be able to start on it in the next couple of weeks. For the last month, I've been spending almost 6 hours a day in the post faze of the timelapse & 4K Yosemite & high Sierra project I started filming last March and just finished filming last month. Hope to have it done and on YouTube by the end of next week. Then, after a few days break, it will be time to start on the Cozumel project.

 

I like to have everything finished by the start of ski season!

 

Did you have a chance to try out your new rig yet? If so, how did it work out?

Here is this year's Cozumel 3D video which I just completed editing. All but about 30 seconds of this approx. 15 minute film was shot with the Gopro Dual Hero. This year I shot it with the Protune color setting at flat in addition to the RAW white balance setting I used last year. I couldn't be happier. The flexibility I had in post with color management was a real joy!
