Testing my Amphibico Underwater Housing
I picked up a used underwater housing last year that wasn’t really for my Sony HDR-HC1, but for a much older TRV analog model…but I figured mine would fit with some modification to the camera plate, and the LANC controller should work with my newer model Sony camera. Because I like to marry my love of Photography and Videography with my love for scuba diving, I couldn’t resist. Well, I finally modified the camera plate this week, ripped out the LANC electronics (which never did work correctly for my camera), and made it a completely manual shell housing. I tried it out in the pool yesterday with my family swimming…and here are the results. All I have to do now is rig up some linkages to allow some mechanical control of the camera while at depth.
