Underwater Video Application?

Anyone have any experience with recording video underwater? Especially deep underwater, say more than 100 feet? What type of lighting, housing, camera type would work best?

Are we talking about surveillance products, inspection equipment or broadcast cameras?


If you don't mind I'll refer you to a friend of mine, Leonard Pool, who specializes in underwater video systems. Leonard Pool is the president of Sidus Solutions.

Pretty broad question. I have experience SCUBA diving and recording at that depth. I also have limited industrial experience.

What are the requirements. i.e. use case? An answer to Brian's question would be helpful. Recreational diving? Image categorization? To trigger other sensors? Lighting conditions and visibility?

There is a similar discussion on LinkedIn at shallower depths.
