Underwater Camera Set-Up

As of 2020, I’ve upgraded my underwater camera set-up and I’m now capturing images with the following gear:

I continue to use my Gopro Hero 8 for wider angle shots and as a backup. It is attached to the Nauticam housing with a Sealife Cold Shoe Mount.

My Old Underwater Camera Set-Up

Before 2020, I used a Sealife camera for primarily photographs and captured video with a Gopro. I typically used the Gopro Hero 8 Black during the day and the Gopro Hero 4 Silver at night or on macro focused dives.

The picture above shows my old Sealife and Gopro Hero 6, after the image was taken I upgraded to the Gopro Hero 8. The above photography was taken while scuba diving off the Oman Aggressor by Shaker Mohamed, Cruise Director.

When shooting smaller subjects, I used Backscatter’s Flip Filters 55mm +15 MacroMate Mini and a Gopro. I do not use this combination since I purchased the Panasonic GH5. For lighting, I typically use two (2500 lumen) video lights which has remained constant between the old and new systems.

Feel to message with any questions about the various underwater camera system I have used.
