Roger Horrocks kindly allowed me to post some pics from his commercial shoot using a Arri Alexa XT with a Arri/Fujinon Alura 15.5-45mm T2.8 lightweight zoom.  The housing is a Hydroflex, set up with Preston surface focus and zoom controls.  The DOP is Mattias Rudh and puller is Justin McGilivray.  Obviously the camera is handled by Roger Horrocks.

Nice! Quick question - I am pretty familiar with the Remote Aquacam with Alexa/Epic but have a shoot with a Phantom Flex/Hydroflex RAC coming up - if you or anyone here has experience with this set up, I'd appreciate any tips or "gotchas" I need to be aware of.



...And also bouyancy tips! I've heard of people putting a magliner inner tube around the port hood to overcome front heavy bouyancy characteristics...
