Underwater Promo shot with an XH A1

Here is the Vimeo link to a recent expedition and promo shoot to Marion Reef, a remote (400 kms offshore) Southern Coral Sea atol.

Comments always welcome, especially on the voice over as it was my first attempt at one,

Cheers

Jon

Great vid man... I'm curious what housing unit you were using and if you had any close calls with the camera...

The voice over I don't think was bad at all... Something you might could do would be to adjust the contrast just a bit... It will help bring out some of the details and distinguish them from the blue water...

I want an underwater housing pretty badly for vacations and such, but with it costing more than the camera its kind of a pointless thing for me to buy.

your video is awesome though. I agree with possibly boosting the contrast a little. It also seams a bit dark possibly brighten it up a tad?

Looked, and sounded great.

Agree some of the shots are a little dark, problem was that the weather was very overcast and some of those shots were taken at about 50m..

I actually reckon the camera did pretty well to handle the low light, loads better than my old Sony HC1

Thanks
