Red Sea diving video

Recommended Posts

Hi,
 
in November I have been on a liveaboard in the south of the Red Sea, afterwards i went diving from land for a week.
With the necessary patience, I was able to film a lot of natural behavior. 
Enjoy watching!

Great - thanks for sharing that! Really enjoyed watching. Brings back some good memories of diving down there. You were lucky with the dolphins!

 

Cheers,

Matt

Thanks Matt!

The dolphins were great! It was at the house reef, i had them for myself for 20min, just a few snorkelers above me. I stayed at one spot, didn´t move much, the dolphins came close to me several times and were very relaxed and interested. After more divers and snorkelers came in which chased the dolphins the show ended after 25min

Super underwater video, gets even better towards the end.  Great composition, lighting and editing, most enjoyable.

Thank you very much! It was my 3 edit, with the two others before i wasnt satisfied, they felt "strange" to me

Wow, exquisite work! Both on the location and in the post. I can see the benefits of stabilisation and I would only wish my GH5S would have one. Fingers crossed for GH6 :-). I was on a live aboard at about the same time in Red Sea. I've tried HDR delivery but had to mix GoPro footage in this as it's a field trip report, not a reel. Did you shoot v-log or standard and how did you deal with white balancing?

Thank you much Roman!
Im only able to use the camera IBIS, my lenses dont support extra stabilization. But yes its a great benefit and with a neutral buanced housing, steady motion and stabilization in post it looks like on a camera slider. I filmed in V-Log 25fps, only for the Mackerels i used 50fps or 60/25 VBR

Yes the mackerels... didn't want to point it out as the film is really superb but I've noticed slightly deteriorated image/noise in that segment mainly at 3:32 and I attributed it to GH5 sensor and also 'less than perfect visibility' :-) but now also the 8bit footage explains it to me. Could not have been easy to grade it to match the rest. I think the movie is superb and it would shine even more in HDR. I would love to see if you would try converting project for this delivery!

No problem, i am aware of this color noise and have no idea how to get rid off in post. I have this noise with 10bit too. Maybe its because the higher ISO of 1600 which i use.

For the colour noise - well, first of all, most people wouldn't even notice because the shot is just great, it's only nerdy pixel peepers like us lot here on Wetpixel! However, have you tried Neat Video? I've had good results. You can try the demo version, and play with the settings. I also use the GH5 up to 1600 ISO. I won't hijack the thread by posting other videos, but you can check in my signature the one I did from the Maldives. All the mantas were shot with ambient light at 30m, and I used NV in post.

Thanks Mat! Just because this shot is great, it must be perfect
I have used NV in this shot. There wasnt much noise, only these strange color shifts. Probably i have to dive down deeper in the NV settings. Ill have to watch NV tutorials, i guess.
