#368959 Camera tether suggestions??

Posted by simonK on 05 January 2016 - 10:31 AM

I made one by splicing loops into a bit of rope (good excuse to learn to splice). Just don't do what I did and get complacent, let go of the camera swimming for the shot in 70m of water - it wasn't clipped on! the worlds fastest decent followed, caught the camera and found the wreck.

Couldn't be bothered with painting / coating the floats just used this stuff:  http://www.easycompo...Foam-Core.aspx

The layers glued together with evostick and then the whole lot held on with electrical tape.






And a picture by Kieran of it in action on the Justicia

The closed cell foam that is used as core material in composite structures works well. I have used it down to 70m with no problems. Google easy composites.

Don't over think it, they are all brilliant and you will have a great time. One of my favourites was Shinkoko, epic engine room and lots of life on deck. Oite was great but that's trimix depth. Rio de Janiero engine room has to be one of the greatest week dives ever.
