Two weeks ago I was on a boat as one of four DSLR shooters but out-numbered by SEVEN Epic users with five Gates and two other housings. There was also a 3D video set-up. Is this a record?

I buy my own photographic kit. Diving equipment manufacturers and diving services suppliers get even-handed treatment from me whether they choose to advertise in the publications I write for or not. All the equipment I get on loan is returned as soon as it is finished with. Did you know you can now get Diver Mag as an iPad/Android app?

What are the two other housings?

 

Sounds like an Epic trip LOL

 

I could just imagine the computing power on board too.....anyone with Mobile Rockets?

 

If you have a photo of all of them together I am sure John E would love to see it. Thanks for sharing.

 

Cheers

Funnily enough, we had Kat Rockett (Mark Rackley's girlfriend) on-board! She's very mobile!

 

There were two Aquavision, one used by Frazier Nivens. Other cameramen included Randy Andy Brandy Casagrande IV. (Funny how I always remember his name!)
