A friend of mine, Juan Pons – who is a professional nature photographer, tweeted about an amazing HD underwater video taken with a Canon 5D Mark II digital SLR camera (it’s an expensive camera that he also owns). This is one of the first SLR cameras to have HD video capability. When you watch the video, you can appreciate the photographic quality of the footage which includes many closeups, wide-aperature focusing, great lighting qualities, and more.
Select “HD”, then select “full screen” next to it.
Hopefully, during our five year trip, I’ll be able to shoot some underwater photography and videography and make a movie like this. This is certainly an inspiration to me. Unfortunately, I don’t have the camera equipment this guy was using. But, maybe I’ll get lucky with my more modest cameras. At a minimum, I’m going to look for an opportunity to dive in Koh Tao in the Gulf of Thailand.
By the way, the first Canon 5D Mark II HD videography I saw was by my friend Juan Pons. Check out his Yellowstone Winter HD video.
