A little selection of macro goodness from a recent trip to Bali.
Huge thanks to the entire team at The Underwater Tribe for taking me diving :)
For anyone interested, this is the equipment list and settings etc -
Shot on Red Scarlet W, 5K @ 40fps on a 25fps base timeline.
Gates Pro Action Housing and Gates GT-14 Video Lights were used.
The Nikon 70-180mm macro lens was also used and turned out to be a very versatile lens.
The R3D's were edited and graded in Resolve 14.1 and a couple of clips were post stabilised.
There wasn't a great deal of grading needed as the H20 OLPF works nicely, especially when white balanced off a white slate.
Hope you enjoy.

Nice, at 0:43 there is some text in the lower left corner which first I thought is a lens reflection. But it seems to be some plastic in front of the frog. Could be easily edited out using a tracked window in Resolve :)

Nice! How are you able to pan so smoothly? Which tripod do you use?

Certainly could be Bub but I didn't see a need to do that.

The amount of rubbish was quite astonishing.

No tripod used Pyroracer. All handheld.

Having a housing that is able to be trimmed up for neutral buoyancy makes a huge difference. One of the many benefits of using a dedicated video system is the ability to trim the housing perfectly. Plenty of practice helps too mate.

Really impressive video. The detail is astonishing in 4K. I'm amazed that you can maintain that level of stability shooting handheld macro. Kudos!

Bub it was my first time in Bali and the rubbish situation was an eye opener for sure.

​It is a shame that the Balinese treat the land that way.

Thank you Lior :)

Thanks Evil Otter LOL.

​YouTube has compressed the image quality as well. If your housing is trimmed up nicely, you can get good stable footage handheld.

​It does take some practice though.
