Filmed on GoPro Hero 2 in dive housing, 720p at 50fps
With oculus red filter mounted on an extendable monopod.
Lighting for night dives was largely thanks to Damian's epic macro diving gear... and a small tungsten globe torch for the octopus chasing sequence.
Thanks: Damian, Tanya, Jay and all my dive buddies this year as well as DM Sharon and Snorkel Safari Gold Coast (coolydive.com.au)
Compression: MPEG-4 video

Notes: I did my best to be accurate in marine life ID... if there is anything named incorrectly, please correct me via comments below. And dang it, I just realised the Nudibranch typo ... anyway. I'll fix it soon.
All footage for this video was filmed from about August to November 2012 after I started filming on 720p and using the oculus red filter. Oculus works well in all shallow dives less than 10m deep - not so well at Bare Island. Would love to find a Bare Is. expert to take me on several dives there next year so I can figure it out!
