Pete Romano makes filming underwater easy with his new HydroFlex AquaCam.
Pete Romano, president of HydroFlex, has developed the new HD Remote AquaCam to help feature and TV film shooters with submerged HD production. The HD AquaCam incorporates a Fujinon HA13x4.5 wide-angle HDTV Cine Style zoom lens with Preston iris, focus and zoom hand unit controls on a Sony HDW-F950 camera.
Fujinon’s HA13x4.5 wide-angle lens, coupled with remote camera and lens controls, in an underwater housing offers video producers a new tool to do their job. All camera iris, focus and zoom functions are remotely controlled with the Preston hand unit, which is operated from the surface.
The HD Remote AquaCam mounts on HydroFlex’s underwater pan and tilt remote head, but because of its elliptical shape the AquaCam can also be handheld and moved through the water easily.
