In Topic: Housing for technical diving

19 September 2017 - 05:27 AM

I'm diving with a rebreather too and I only shoot video.

For the amount of gear I'm carrying, years ago I opted for a M43 setup, far more compact than a full DSLR one.

IMHO for tech diving, 99% of the times it means "no scooter? no party!" hence I have my housing fixed on the scooter nose with a dedicated plate.

I understand that for photography it's not the best configuration but my buddy Marco Bartolomucci is an avid UW photographer and he prefer going down like me. He brings his housing "by hand" only on rare less demanding dives. You can see him photographing a sponge with the camera fixed on the scooter 70m deep in this video at 2:20




You can see here the photo taken in that exact moment: https://photos.app.g...Qx0c2bDwyqeydC2


I think this setup is a good compromise for tech diving. Of course I know guys who prefer clipping housing and strobes on right d-ring.


Said that. I have a Panasonic GH3 in a Nauticam housing plus two Luna 8 CRI lights and I brought them several times at 100/110m (360ft).

As R4E pointed out, be careful with domes. Most of the times thay are the Achilles heel. My housing is rated 100m but the 6" dome is rated 60m or 75m (I don't remember) nevertheless I was much deeper a lot of time. (Lucky me).

I think Nick's film demonstrates why we need 4K even exporting at 1080p. The Ken Burns effect/zoom add a nice dynamic motion on steady macro shots.
