Hello Everyone,
 
I wanted to share the next installment of my Rolling in the Deep series.  This time it is in Komodo Indonesia.  This is a wide angle look.  With a Macro version coming soon.  Let me know what you think.
Enjoy

Komodo - Rolling in the Deep - Canon 5d Mark II


Terrific video, …thanks for posting it.

Never seen a black manta before.

Is this a sub-species, or only a melanistic individual?

Great find in any case!   :D


Larry,

It is a Black Oceanic Manta Ray.  They aren't too common, but they are around.

Video & Movie / Macro Video with 100mm USM

Hello,

Thought I would share a macro video I shot with the Canon 100mm USM.  I also used a +10 Wet Dipoter to get even closer in.  Let me know what you think.
Enjoy!

The liveview feed to a pc or mac would be full circke i believe. You will then need capturing software to capture the feed. Not sure about resolution or framerate. Its a bit of a goof.

There is by the way software for the web where you can make interactive panoramic videos from wide angle high rez shots. Ill see if i can find out what its called again.

Thanks, but the problem is I won't be able to do that underwater...  Software maybe.

Hello Everyone,

I experimented doing some video with the Canon 8-15mm Fisheye lens.  It is definitely a specialized look. 
Have a look.  I found that movement and spinning served it well, but obvisouly this needs to be done in the right circumstance.  Let me know what you think.

Does anyone know if it is possible to make it record a full circle, instead of cutting off the top and bottom? 

Thanks,

Beneath the surface of our oceans.

Very nice. May I ask, how or where did you get the beginning shots of the earth? Looks like Google Earth but wanted to ask, if it is Google Earth are we allowed to use those images?


Hello,
Thanks for watching it.  It isn't google earth.  These are timelapses from the ISS.  You can find them here:
http://eol.jsc.nasa.gov/Videos/CrewEarthObservationsVideos/

They do allow you to use them, as long as you give them credit, as you will see in my credits.

Thanks for sharing, Dustin. I had no idea that even existed. Great to know. Thanks.


No problem.  It is pretty cool that they let people use it.

Great video. It was a real pleasure to watch.  I especially like the shrimp.  :) Well done Dustin.

Thank you.  The shrimp always crack me up.  I had even more footage of him fumbling that rock around...but had to cut it down.

Video & Movie / Super Macro Underwater / ISS Timelapse short film
« on: April 17, 2014, 04:02:04 PM »
Hello everyone,

I put together a short underwater film called Critter Planet.  It is filled with very rare underwater creatures, one of which a Kalinga Ornata nudibranch, is so rare, that as far as I can see I am the only one in the world with video footage of it in its natural habitat. 

To better tell the story, I also incorporated some timelapse from the ISS.   Also, have done some narration for the first time.  Check it out, and let me know what you think.

Watch in HD!!

Award well earned. Great video, a real pleasure to watch. Congrats

Thank you...I appreciate that!

That was spectacular, some beautiful video and it really gets to the core of  why I love diving. For me the choice of video or photo is easy, underwater is video and land is photo.

I agree with you!

Video & Movie / Re: Galapagos Underwater - Darwin's Dream - Bronze Award

I really enjoyed it. Award well deserved. Makes me wonder why I don´t do anything under water ...

Thanks for watching it.  It is certainly very expensive, I think that is what keeps most people.  If you shoot on land and want to upgrade a camera body...no big deal.  Just buy the body.  with underwater you have to buy a new housing with it and that can cost $3k to $6k just for that...  Not to mention most people have to travel to shoot.  It just adds up.

thanks again for watching and commenting on it.
