never shot underwater, but my guess would be a video transmitter/reciever system

Video monitoring via an umbilical cord is the most reliable way.

Our Varicam underwater housing has a special sealed viewfinder as well as a rubber-sealed video cable that can run to the surface for monitoring. It's very tight in there -- I don't think we could fit a video transmitter.

My Bolex housing is also very tight - I think they are trying to keep the density down by restricting the air to be only that which is inside the camera :blink: The only other thing to do is weigh it down and then its next to impossible to carry out of the water for transitional shots.
