So I am going to be working on a shoot underwater in a few days, and I just found out regular kinos would be used underwater along side me.

Ive done pretty decent amount of underwater acing, operating, and or dp work and Ive always used hydro-flos. I suppose I just assumed that since hydroflex makes underwater kinos, that the regular kinos would be unsafe.

Both the DP and the Producer assure me it is safe, and they cite liturature they found online, but I cant really find anything like that. Does anyone know how safe this is? Could you point me to any technical writing on it? Thanks.
