This week’s video by Henry Hall features brilliant footage of larger marine life – from graceful whale sharks in the Philippines and loggerhead turtles in the Bahamas, to impressive bull sharks and friendly sea lions in Mexico.

Here’s Henry’s story behind the video:

“I live in NYC and there are a few dive clubs in the city and surrounding areas. One of the oldest dive clubs in the city is the NYC Sea Gypsies. They have a subgroup called the Underwater Photographic Society which meets monthly at a local bar or restaurant. Each month there is a different topic, this month the topic was Big Animals. In this short video, I’ve compiled five moments of big animals that I’ve seen so far and recorded with my GoPro.”

Our video wall is sponsored by Paralenz, and each week we’ll be posting a video either from the guys at Paralenz or a guest video picked from our user-generated uploads showcasing the best of diving, conservation, travel and more!

Paralenz are the ‘new kids on the block’ when it comes to underwater action cameras, but they bring a serious piece of kit to the table that is loaded with benefits and can rival any other action camera on the market. The main feature allows you to throw away your traditional filters, as their DCC software corrects colour on the fly to produce stunning videos. Other action cameras are built to be used for anything from skiing to surfing, but diving is a unique sport that places extreme demands on the gear used, both in terms of durability and usability. The Paralenz POV Action Camera is built for one purpose – diving – and is perfectly suited to survive in the rough and tough conditions of a gear bag or on any adventure you may take it on!
