Dived Up Publications – Action Camera Underwater Video Basics: The Essential Guide to Making Underwater Films by Jeff Goodman

Tel: +44 (0)1865 424702

Action Camera Underwater Video Basics shows how to capture fantastic video and turn it into engaging sequences.

The book focusses on small action cameras – the format which includes devices made by GoPro, SeaLife and Paralenz – all of which have more depth to them than one might first imagine. Award-winning underwater cameraman Jeff Goodman shows how versatile they can be and how to get the best out of them.

Every one of the 200+ images in the book was shot with an action camera.

The book looks at important camera features and cuts through the dizzying array of equipment choices. Homing in on what is useful for underwater videoing, Jeff then provides the vital background knowledge key to achieving great results, time after time, whatever device you use:

  • How to avoid the typical mistakes made by many budding underwater filmmakers.
  • Capture better shots and turn them into engaging sequences.
  • An introduction to the editing process – simple techniques to make the best videos.

Jeff also explains how to use action cameras to take better underwater stills, both in the water and later from the video which has been shot.

A lifetime of essential underwater video know-how in one handy book.

BARE infuses new Evoke with heat-capturing Graphene



Elite immersion-wear designer and manufacturer, BARE, announced earlier this week the release of its newest iteration of the Women’s Evoke Wetsuit, now powered by Graphene Technology.

The new Evoke offers all of the flexible performance and superlative fit of previous models, but now integrates graphene carbon nanostructures that work in tandem with your body to capture and repurpose thermal energy to keep you warmer, for longer.

“The Evoke leverages heat-capturing Graphene Technology to provide enhanced thermal insulation and equalized heat distribution to your entire body,” the company says in a written statement.

By strategically weaving graphene into the core area of the suit, the warmth generated by your body moves from warm areas of the lining to cooler areas for added reflective properties.

Available in 7mm, 5mm and 3mm thicknesses, the newest Evoke promises freedom of movement and enhanced insulation technology to guarantee top comfort and safety on every aquatic adventure.
