I have been testing the Panasonic Lumix GH4 camera which was loaned to me by Aquatica in Canada. I decided it would be a great idea to try to shoot broadcast quality underwater video using only items I could fit in a single carryon case. I packed the Aquatica AGH4 housing, camera, arms and a complete Light & Motion video light set in a Nanuk 935 wheeled carryon case and went to task. The resulting video had to be downsized for the internet, but it was shot in glorious 4k Ultra HD quality. The camera shot some unbelievable stills too (well I guess I did!). I’ll be detailing all the nitty gritty tips for shooting this video in future blogs and a comprehensive article in DIVER magazine soon! Have a look at the video in the interim and judge for yourself!
The photo below is a screen capture from the video footage. The stills generated from shooting in a still camera mode are arguably even better.
This might be the costliest blog entry ever, because now I need to buy the system! I want to keep it!
