Filming in dark sea caves, Cape Clear

By @SimonCocking. Filmed using Canon PowerShot D30. Gearing up to bigger filming projects later this year, this was our first time out in the water in a while. We tried to capture how dark and far back this cave goes, and also how close the over head rocks are. A challenge of course because it gets darker the further back we went. Enjoy!

It’s an interesting camera to use. It does seem to be able to capture some good pictures, with some interesting tech going on in the background to compensate for the glare of the sun. Tried to make it take pictures in lots of challenging light scenarios. Sun shining behind, low winter sun, contrast of dark and light. Pretty user friendly too, most people are able to pick it up and start taking decent pictures very quickly – as is probably the intention with it being positioned as a bridge camera.

One slight design flaw that could become a problem the longer you use it is that the locking mechanism that hold the memory card and battery has opened itself on several occasions already. This could be a real pain as it gets used more if the battery or card holder became less stiff.

Overall it’s an interesting camera to be trialing.
