These are the people that supply the corrective lenses many dive retailers like LeisurePro sell. (Aquatic Optics brand)

IDK if they sell to the public.

Anyone know if Jill Heinerth is still teaching u/w filmmaking?

 

She was at one time - maybe on an intern basis?

It would have to be one of the Sony HDR-HC series or possibly an early HDR-SR series camera. The HC's are all tape based so might have better compatibility with your housings LANC.

 

A little after that time period - maybe 2006? or so - Sony switched to their Multi-Interface Accessory Shoe and eliminated LANC. So none of the newer CX series cameras will work.

 

Another consideration is that the HR series are quite a bit shorter than the PD-150. This shows the differences - - the bottom camera is an HDR-HC1. Maybe there would be room enough for a small internal monitor up against your viewfinder.

Just how one pack quad copter, gopro, camera, laptop, camera housing, tablet, camera for land use, all in to carry on to a plane?

 

 

You can't really if you bring all that other stuff, the DJI quad doesn't break down small enough since it's a solid body quad - only the struts/camera mount come off somewhat easily. DJI sells one for their complete system or there's this one:

IDK about you all but I also carry regs, mask and a few clothes so I'll be checking mine.

In a mildly related post - see what Stan Waterman thinks of it - on the Aggressor over the Tibbetts off Cayman Brac.

If anyone is interested, that's a Fatshark Predator system Stan is using.
