You heard well! The first underwater shoot with a Phantom camera in India diving in for the film “Roy” starring Jacqueline Fernandes, Rambir Kapoor and Arjun Rampal produced by T-Series. We are proud to have accomplished this challenging mission with a Phantom Flex 2K and a Hydroflex Remote AquaCam Housing, both available at Stereovision’s rental catalogue.
After leading the industry in India with film camera housings also made by Hydroflex (the best) for over a decade, its no surprise. It was time to move Digital!

Although “kinos” do have limitations when shooting high-speed due to flicker issues, we managed to overlap the flicker with other tungsten sources from above the water (+5KW tungsten). Also the flicker is less visible underwater due to water density and the natural motion of it.

Inside the housing all cabling and motors must be precisely calibrated to operate the focus and the aperture remotely via the Preston Remote Lens Control System. That was only achieved by the underwater application specialist Rajasekaran (right), together with Anand.
The Hydroflex Remote Aquacam MK5 is available in India and Sri Lanka and it works for Red Epic & Dragon, Arri Alexa, Phantom 2K and 4K.
