I have just completed the first draft of the clips taken with the LX7 in my trip last week. Links are here:
Youtube may not work in some cases so use vimeo instead
For who wants to know the lens choice for wide angle was as follows
Wet mate: Molinere Sculpture Park, Purple Rain, Veronica L, Shark Reef
Inon UWL-H100: Bianca C (28-40 meters) , Northern Exposures, Southern Comfort, Quarter Wreck, Shake’em (20-32 meters)
You can see in the section of the Veronica L that missing those extra degrees field of view did not allow me to take the full wreck by side even if it was not that big. On couple of reef dives I already had the Inon on the previous wreck dive so I left it you can compare performance of the two lenses in terms of sharpness and flare. Generally I feel the wet mate has less flare and is sharper however it does have an issue of reflections as covered in the previous post.
As always I have used iMovie to edit the AVCHD progressive files that I converted to normal mp4 using the workflow in a previous post. There are no dramatic alterations of colour or exposure and no stabilization has been run in any part of the video (in some parts like the snake eel moving it shows) all was done with custom white balance using the camera functionality, considering how deep were some of the wrecks this is very good I believe.
I would love your comments this was mostly an exploration trip so it is interesting to compare to the RX100 Raja Ampat videos
