we might do a 2 weeks underwater shoot off the Wild Coast in South Africa...
As I'm not really experienced underwater I was wondering which camera(s) would you choose?
What would be the options? We are looking at using about 5 cams in total. Due to budget restrictions we are likely to use one "proper" cam (ALEXA Mini or RED Dragon?) and about 4 smaller/cheaper cams...I thought of either SONY FS-7, Canon C300 Mark II, Blackmagic URSA (mini) and SONY AS7 II.
Does anyone have experience with either of the cams under water, what is the performance is like and what would be the best option in terms of handling? Which underwater housing can you recommend ?
Any thoughts/input on the suggested cams? Any other recommandations?
We'll be shooting up to 20m below the surface but obviously also be shooting interviews on land/on the boats. It'll be broadcasted on TV.....
Thanx for some input form the underwater cracks
