    H2OV / ContourHD system reaches new depths

    Technical divers in New Zealand, on a National Geographic supported cave diving expedition into the Pearse Resurgence successfully used the H2OV system at depths of 194 meters, 636 feet … (more info at) Press

    Why would National Geographics use a camera like that for a 190m+ dive?
    Impressive that it works so deep :)

    NGS is funding this project, they did not commission a photo/video team. 2 totally different approaches to NGS involvement in projects.

    regardless, this is clearly the tool for this type of job-the ability to aquire data/imagery in a passive way while simulataneously carrying out a scientific or exploratory mission open up a whole new paradigm in scientific exploration.

    Very cool stuff...

    I will get one of this film pack to make some footages for deep dives (80 - 150 m range). Any idea to put the pack on a helmet ?

    cheers

    Hi Bruno

    Helmet Mounted HD video

    One approach would be to drill the helmet, and directly bolt the housing to your helmet using a 1/4-20 post and the 1/4-20 mounting plate provided. or you can bolt on the goggle mount base provided with the camera and use this in combination with our hand strap mount disk piece, (see website) this would allow for greater adjustability and break-away capability, but it's not a very strong mount. We are currently working on a durable, adjustable helmet mount for the system, check site for updates.

    A short clip summarising the 2011 expedition to the Pearse Resurgence in New Zealand.

    Two H2OV's made the final push to 194m.
