Socorro Islands with the Pelagic Fleet

Recommended Posts

 

In November I managed to steal an adventure from and otherwise difficult 2020. After getting Covid-19 tested, keeping a temperature log and donning two masks, I ventured to the Socorro Islands for the first time with the GH5 on the Solmar V. I head read all the report of camera housings getting taxed going through customs, but we got the green light when tapping the button and all was good!

Spent 8 days aboard the Solmar V with masked crew and divers. The crew was happy to be back at sea again after being shut down for months. I was happy to be back in warm water. Below is the video of the adventure.

Really nice editing. Great mixture of drone, above water, and under water footage along with a good music track. I've never had the patience to do video editing,

The Revillagigedo Islands are magical. I went a few years ago and will go back again at some point.

Glad to hear you didn't get hit with the camera housing tax.

Nice video, going to Socorro soon. Seems like no one was really using video lights? I heard you need about 10k+ lumens for it to make sense?

I had video lights, but opted for ambient light and custom white balance. The speed at which the animals appear and disappear make it difficult to be prepared with appropriate settings and turning lights on/off. 10k lumens will probably be the minimum needed if going that route.

Nice work Stephen!  I like the combination of top side and underwater footage.  You have inspired me.

Thanks. Hope you're swimming with mantas and whale sharks right now!
