Mark Schacht shot this broadcast quality Standard Digital (SD) footage on a Sony VX-2100 (3 chip) camcorder on about 60 scuba dives off the islands of Lanai and Maui between 2005-2007, and on 14 scuba dives off the island of Taveuni and in Beqa Lagoon in Fiji in late 2006. The footage from the Solomon Islands (2008) was shot in HD. He edited this footage in Apple's Final Cut Studio and used Windows-based compression software to package the best of this footage into six separate "master screener catalog files" suitable for web viewing on PCs. Each file contains dozens of clips of reef and pelagic fish, hard and soft corals, and fantastic underwater caverns, lava tubes, lava archways, and lava ridges, both with and without divers.  

To simplify your viewing, selection and licensing of individual footage, each clip has a catalog number. To explore the footage, just click on one of the individual sample clips listed under each master file. For optimum viewing: 1) first, upgrade your PC media player to the most current software version; and 2) second, do NOT view full screen (which greatly degrades video quality).

The conversion of this SD footage into Windows PC-based viewable media results in an unavoidable, but noticeable, darkening of some of the images. [This darkening effect does NOT occur when SD footage is converted into Apple's QuickTime movie format; let us know if you want to view footage in that format.]  PLEASE NOTE: The footage that you license will be broadcast-quality SD or HD video, and will be provided to you on an original master mini-DV tape with no trademarks or watermarks.
