I was scuba diving in Mauritius and edited this clip from the dives.

Happy Holidays and I wish Amazing New Year 2013 to you all.
There will be new one day on earth 12.12.12 so I invite you to participate on that
from everywhere in the world but for now you can check out the film that
they made on 10.10.10. Some of my footage is also included there.
Here is a small test for the Nokia Maps & Places wp plugin.
I just returned today from the photoshoot that I had in two places.
First was outdoor swimming pool in Pori
Second shoot that I had was in spa located quite near, in Yyteri spa.
I made post from Snake River Prototyping flat lens fix, although there are now similar ones like Backscatter, the snake river is still the one of the most interesting ones. I currently own two snake river flat ports and have been very happy with them. Actually I participated to the Eilat Red Sea Underwater competition only using GoPro cameras. Well, I did not won anything, I was still very happy to the quality of the pictures that I got from there. In all those pictures I used Snake River Prototyping BlurFix flat port with attached SWCY or CY filters. The color filters makes big difference in underwater because otherwise the it will easily clip the red from the video material totally and no post prosessing will get that back.
What I find interesting in the the tray as the called is there are so many possibilities to attach the camera. The only worry I have is that as the camera is attached front of the handles is similar as you would hold the camera with stick, even with both hands. I hope that I will have a change to test it. I would like to make some comparison then between the rigs that I have and theirs. For travellers like me this will be at least very interesting because of the simple design and as it very light(1.7 lbs/0.8kg) and that is including the camera.
The introductory price is 129.99 $, and it seems that the final price will be 150$
Here is their example video using the tray and some color filters

I’m making a Christmas card every years to all my followers and friends. So Happy Holidays 2011
I finally got two new GoPro Hero HD cameras. And tested them in 3D housing. So far it seems to be working somehow but at least not fully. Those new video modes are not working with 3D housing and there is some strange turn on problems like in one case the second camera didn’t turned on and in one case it didn’t started the second camera recording. You still can use them but I think it’s better to wait for firmware update.
As for the camera itself seems to be very nice and the new LCD display is much better. It basically shows all the same things than the back display if you have one. The menu structure is actually changed a bit, still haven’t decided is it better or worse. I haven’t tested so much the camera in low light situation but I need to do it. The modes have been improved a lot as there are more modes now that just video and time-lapse mode.
I will continue testing it.
I just wanted to inform interesting solution that Snake River Prototyping is offering. Their solution is small metal that will replace the original holder of the lens from GoPro housing. This solution makes possible to attach basically any 55mm filter in front of the lens. In most cases this is not so important but as underwater you easily lose your reds without external light. Some of these filters makes possible to boost up those reds and got nice video even without lights. Sadly this is only for single cameras, not for 3D housing. I have one that I need to test, but currently waiting for better waters…
I participated at June to Mallorca workshop that was organized by Philip Bloom, Nino Leitner and Sebastian Wiegärtner.
Although the time was limited for only 3 days, I still learned a lot. Mostly about working in team and
how videography is in the end totally different word that photography.
Our team shooed this video in one day and edited it in second day.
I had my underwater housing with me of course and used that for those underwater shots. Still in our team case the most time consuming was the figure out some idea for the movie, and of course the idea changed a lot during the workshop. The best option would have been to have ready made script that we only need to shoot it and decide more of the artistic side.
Then we would had missed totally the the whole process of making the movie. That’s why I will be concentrating on the stories more from now on.
The place was of course excellent had got really nice memories from that. Still I have to say that the biggest
gain from that was the people. Nothing compares to that of having whole group of similar people with the same passion.
