    I took a handful of my HDV clips from my previous Fiji video, slowed them down to 50% speed by bob-deinterlacing them, and let them run. The result is a 5 minute video that contains 8 clips instead of 100. Please let me know what you think!

    Beautiful video. May I inquire as to how you managed to film a seamless continuous curve shot? I try to film shots like that on my drift dives but they never end up so smooth even at 60fps. they seem to bob up and down a little. Your's were pretty much level as I observed.

    Thanks yarik83. One of the key things is a large housing with plenty of inertia. That was shot with a Light & Motion Bluray housing for the Sony FX1/Z1, which is a pretty big housing, plus I had lights attached to it. I wouldn't have been able to make it that smooth with a small housing. My previous standard definition housing had big floats on it to counteract the heaviness of my light batteries, and all that bulk helped the camera stay steady. Plus, there was a nice steady current to drift in and my diving skills were polished as I'd been diving daily for a few weeks by then.
