The Aquatica Team is proud to introduce you to the Aquatica A5D Mk III housing for the acclaimed Canon 5D Mk III. Our Design team has upped the game with this recently released camera. New features have been added to this housing to improve operation and compatibility, but importantly, this precision housing is the product of a very time proven lineage of underwater camera housing. 30 years of knowledge in this field has made sure that every aspect of the housing ergonomics and access to all controls were carefully implemented. The final result of this camera housing mirrors the constant evolution of technology and the input of highly respected professionals image makers from around the world.
The Aquatica A5D Mk III housing still benefits from the finest material available in the industry. Carefully crafted from a selected alloy of aircraft grade aluminum and premium grade of stainless steel, the housing is machined on the latest 5 axis computer assisted machines. It is then protected by anodizing to North American military specification for further protection, Aquatica provides corrosion inhibiting zinc anodes as standard equipment and coats their housing with a baked on, tough as nail, powder coating. This extra level of protection does make a huge difference as can be seen on some Aquatica housings that even with over 1,500 dive on them, still look as fresh as the day they came out of the box. This housing is made for the hard working professional in mind, one who truly understands reliability in the field.
This is an interesting Behind the Scenes produced by [FRAMED]. Learning studio strobes and studio techniques are a challenging and fun process….now imagine adding water. Holding your breath, not being able to communicate to your model, etc. Mallory Morrison started as a dancer and took those artistic skills as a trained photographer and dancer to the water. Today, Mallory takes us underwater to shoot a fashion spread for Live Orange County Magazine.
Continuing with the Underwater Cameraman Series, this time I’m presenting Marcelo Rodrigues, a biologist that started with scuba diving during his biology thesis and became a passion since then. Marcelo works as a videographer and travels around the world whenever he can, filming the underwater world. Thank you Marcelo for the interview, I’m looking forward to your next diving video in Maldives.
Alexander Benedik is an underwater filmmaker who is diving since 1998 and doing videos since 2008. In this interview Alex will tell us why he started with underwater filming and share with us some of his best experiences while shooting in remote locations like Alaska and Antarctica. You can learn more from him and discover what it is that has pushed him to start diving and doing these amazing underwater videos.
Cameraman: Tell us about yourself and how you got started doing underwater videos.
Alex: After 10 years of scuba diving I have started my underwater video career. In those ten years I had many of exciting and once in a life time experiences underwater. The key moment to start underwater video was in Bali 2007. I was alone on 5 meters with a dozen of very relaxed Bumphead Parrotfish that swam close around me for 10 minutes or more. The dive buddy with the camera was out of sight, so no one was there to capture this unique scenery.
Still in Bali I grabbed a German underwater magazine and did some research on video housings. Three weeks later I bought my first housing on a water sport convention in Vienna, Austria.
Cameraman: And how did you get into diving?
Alex: Good fellows of mine had a scuba license. I spent a vacation with them at Dominican Republic. They went for scuba and I was alone on the beach. It was really boring lying on the beach. For me it’s a waste of time. So I booked a scuba course. From that moment scuba became an obsession.
Cameraman: Moving on to the videos you make – how do you choose the locations?
Alex: For this question I have to make a big swing. I was very lucky to meet an Austrian underwater photographer on an Egypt live aboard in 2002 or 2003. He is a really macro and critters specialist. He showed me some of his pictures. Until that time I had no clue about what you can really find underwater – if you have a closer look. Usually people see colored fish, corals and that’s it. We both share the same underwater interests, so we travel and choose our dive spots and dive vacations together since then. Only the cold water regions, like Antarctica, Iceland, Alaska, I dived without him.
