I have got the email from a company named QYSEA, and promoted a ROV product named FIFISH P3. Here is the link (https://www.qysea.com/Product/FIFISHP3/index.html). I really like this product's idea, but is it a good tool for underwater photography, and is it worth to buy one as a beginner? Did anyone have tested it before, or have any comments, thoughts about it? Here is the advantages and disadvantages chart table of my thought, this is not just for FIFISH but for all other brands, too. ROV V.S. DSLR+Housing Advantages: 1. Capable to dive 100 meter without technical diving certifications (is there anything new or special below 40 meters?) 2. All in one solution, FIFISH P3 has 1 inch sensor, other brands have 1/1.8 inch or 1/2.3 inch sensor (how will it be compare with full frame or shall I compare with mirroless?) plus total 4,000 lm LED Flash (5500K) FYI, FIFISH's MSRP on B&H is $3,499, the ROV price range from $1,000 to $6,000. Disadvantages: 1. Cannot film in the sideways (I am a beiginner, I am not sure is it very important to film on the side of object?) 2. It has the tenther, so it could have chance to be entangled. I am looking forward hear some suggestion and comments about the ROV for decision making. Sincerely, Ziyong_CHEN
Hey Everyone, So i've decided to sell off some old gear so I can try and upgrade to new gear. I have a variety of things - so here we go: Equinox Canon t3i Kit General: I have a heavily used Equinox housing with the standard port for a Canon T3i. I am also including the Canon T3i (with two batteries and the charger) without a lens. I am unsure of the quantity of actuations on this camera, but it is quite low (i'm going to estimate approximately 10K). This system is not for a professional but rather for someone who is interested in getting into underwater photography and wants to learn. The system never flooded and is super easy to use! I am looking to sell it for $700 (housing + camera body) or Best Offer. If you are interested, please message me. Specifics: Equinox Housing for Canon T3i 1 Dome Port for standard 10-22mm lens Weighted handles to facilitate proper buoyancy and maneuverability Canon T3i 2 x Canon T3i Batteries Canon T3i Battery Charger OpenROV Kit General: I have a never used OpenROV system. This system comes with multiple sets of batteries (if I can figure out how to ship them) and two battery chargers. I also have a laminated set of instructions that I made that go along with the kit so you can operate the ROV. In addition, the OpenROV team sent me three additional propeller motors so I am going to throw them in as well. This system comes with a nicely maintained yellow pelican case so if you are into underwater exploration, this is a pretty cool piece of equipment. I am looking to sell it for $1000 or Best Offer. Cetacean Research Underwater Speaker and Hydrophone General: This is a random post but thought i'd see if there was any interest. About a year ago, I purchased an underwater hydrophone kit (SQ26-H1) to record whale and dolphin vocalizations and a lubell labs underwater professional speaker to reply these sounds (LL916H-025). This is a professional kit, but I never used this system and it is collecting dust. If you or someone you know may be interested in this, message me and I can give you all the details.
Hi there, Wondering if anyone here uses ROVs as a way to explore the underwater world, it wouldn't replace a diver - but it is an easy way to either survey the waters before a dive or have people on the boat of dock experience what it is like to be underwater exploring. Would love to know anyone's opinions on using ROVs for video of explorations. Thanks for your opinions in advance! Post edited and moved: Admin
