We have developed a remote-controlled “underwater photographer” that can hold its breath for the duration of the Olympic Aquatic competitions at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
At first we looked into available underwater robotic heads to buy in order to save time in developing a new system. We couldn’t find anything that would fit our underwater system requirements, that would be good for a news agency, easy to use and reliable.
In the end we decided to look beyond standard underwater photography and contacted a few off-shore and oil-platform companies to ask them how they operate underwater with their systems when it comes to pictures and videos.
