This unmanned underwater camera may mean that next time you want an underwater shot you don't miss out because it's too hard to justify the practicality of it to the Production Manager.
A few of our guys have been to the Boxfish office and were inspired to share this with everyone else in our society. With this camera, everybody stays dry (except for the actor). Come along to not only watch it in action around the pool over a beer and snack, but you can also have a go to test it yourself.
The Boxfish ROV is a purpose built underwater drone which moves in 3 axes and tilt/pan/rolls with freedom like a camera gimbal wouldb. It can mimic dolly and crane shots. Smooth, precision control is afforded by its unique fly-by-wire design. The internal camera payload with its large four-thirds sensor can record in 4K120p 10-bit 4:2:2 at 600mbps. Full-frame 4K and 6K options are coming. A 4K surface monitor provides lag-free monitoring and surface recording at up to 30 fps at 10 bit.
The action kicks off in Boxfish's pool (the old Orakei Dive Centre) at 7pm, so bring your puffer jacket. Our very own underwater legend Murray Milne NZCS is attending to put it to the test!
