HYDRUS VR -- underwater 8K camera rig

HYDRUS VR -- underwater 8K camera rig

[16:57 sun,12.August 2018   by ]    

The American company Marine Imaging Technologies has designed an interesting camera setup for immersive underwater shots. It contains 10 genlock synchronised Sony UMC-S3CA cameras, i.e. the highly compact 4K cubes with full-frame sensor specially designed for remote/multicam use. For spherical image coverage, eight of them are classically arranged in a circle and film with 60% image overlap, while one is oriented upwards / downwards. From the recordings a monoscopic surround video in 8K (8192 x 4096 at 30fps) can be created, in 4K the frame rate can be increased to 120fps (then the cameras film individually in FHD) or stereoscopically.

The underwater housing should be suitable for depths up to 300m. An image preview is given via a monitor attached to the handle (optionally the view of a main camera or all eight ring cameras simultaneously), can be set via its own software ISO and shutter speed, and of course the recording can be started and stopped. It seems that an additional power supply for the cameras is integrated in the underwater control module, so that it can be filmed for up to eight hours.



It seems, however, that the Hydrus VR Setup is not for sale itself, but only rented including operator; the ten Sony cameras alone would otherwise cost over 50,000 Euros when purchased...
