My new super cool Seacam housing is amazing…It holds a Canon 5D MKIII which is also a decent 35mm camera body. Harald is the brains behind these incredible underwater housings that are engineered one by end like a hand crafted clock, did an unbelievable job and I´m testing all the gear before my next underwater shoot.
Many advised me against using a manual focus Zeiss lens underwater because of the added layers between the image and my eyes (the dome port, lens, viewfinder and dive mask). Admittedly I have had my moments of doubt as to whether I could pull it off and produce sharp images but am pretty happy with a series of shots taken of a lemon in the local public pool – thanks to Peter Soki, the kind duty manager that let me in at the end of the day..! Everywhere else I asked required some long protracted process… A little like asking for a grant – Just for a chick in a corner of a pool to play with her new camera gear!!
Thank you Harald & Peter!
