A lesson in proper use of a camera lanyard

Recommended Posts

That's great! Fortunately, the rig was buoyant! Guess what happens if your video housing is negative and you have a lanyard failure in 200+ ft of water and a ripping current? :(

 

Ask me how I know... :o

It was my brother with the rig and he infact had a lanyard on the housing. The lanyard had two idenitcal buckles. One extends the lanyard and the other releases it entirely. A silly system. Lesson learned. He knew the camera was recording when it was launched to the surface. We had no idea it would have a great shot of him looking everywhere but up. It was actually a rented rig and they had put a 2,000 hold on the credit card. I think that was partly the reason for the panicked groping. :o
