Camera systems that can be supported underwater are as follows:

  • Alexa Mini

Please note that we are always happy to work in a support role for your preferred operator or DoP, and we have found this to be a good half way house between dry and wet hire meaning valuable production time isn’t lost on unfamiliar hired in equipment.
