Vimeo user Alessio Federici recently posted the video above featuring some excellent dive footage from Sipadan, Malaysia. About three minutes into the video there is some white tip reef shark (Triaenodon obesus) footage. White tip reef sharks typically grow to just about over 5′ in length, although in rare cases they may reach close to 7′ in length. The species typically feeds on bottom-dwelling prey such including crustaceans and cephalopods. They are generally not considered dangerous to humans unless they are harassed.
In addition to the shark footage there is some excellent footage of sea turtles, clown fish, cuttlefish, and morays.
The video, which was filmed in July of 2010, was shot using the Canon 5D Mark II’s video mode.
