    Underwater Shooting with IQ180/DF

    I thought that this article over at Phase One was interesting as I've never run across anyone using MFDB's for underwater work. Hmm, a leak in the housing would make for a VERY bad day!

    We tested one last year in Mexico. You'd have to have an underwater case that was built like a tank to trust an IQ in it. This one is.

    The build-quality and strength of the moving parts and gaskets are what you'd expect out of a machine of war, not a camera housing. I'm not exaggerating.

    I don't think you looked very hard; a simple search for "underwater" in this forum revealed this from 2008:

    The P1 article looks interesting, thanks for posting. I love reading about people who are willing to turn their camera into a boat anchor, literally in this case.

    Kind regards,
    Derek

    Well, I can't say that it was a concerted search, or any search actually ... just a general observation.

    Derek,

    I don't think you looked precisely enough, there is a much earlier/older project taken underwater with MFDB, in 2002 and for Sinar's yearly calendar, here:

    Sinar Calendar 2033 - Underwater

    It was taken in Australia, Gold Coast (Queensland, with a Sinarback 44 (Kodak 16 MPx Square) and a special built housing.

    Best regards
    Thierry

    Thierry, I don't speak or read German. Do you have a link to an English version?

    Glad you included it! Be well.

    Unfortunately no, I searched for it but didn't find any.

    Good thing underwater housings are so cheap, otherwise this could be a real expensive hobby...

    Indeed (it costs $9900, if anyone's curious)

    This is fun! There was an underwater Hassy 500 + Lightphase shoot that predates that one. They had to use gaskets with battery powered firewire repeaters to "hop" the cable from the camera to a repeater to the computer.

    To be fair though I've heard that shoot was a bear.

    It's a big world, my bet is even that was not the first digital underwater shoot.

    It is, fun!



    That's why I didn't dare to say that the Sinar "underwater" calendar was the first one with a DB.

    Thanks Doug.
