Here’s my current underwater camera rig.

Underwater Camera Set-Up

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.

    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.
