This small 15.2 x 8.9 x 5.4in (38.5 x 22.6 x 13.8cm) underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) is capable of shooting 4K UHD video and 12 MP stills (jpeg and
DNG formats supported) up to a depth of 328ft (100m).

The built-in 5000 mAh rechargeable battery supports a runtime of two hours. Two built-in LED lights of 1200 lumens each add a little light to underwater scenes.
The ROV is connected to its surface base station by a tether cable; all operations of the vehicle can then be controlled by a smartphone or tablet, which connects to the base station via WiFi (with a maximum range of 10m).
The built-in camera supports a 95-degree field of vision. The 1in CMOS sensor supports an ISO range of 100-3200. The ROV is powered by five thrusters, allowing a maximum cruising speed of 4 knots (2m per second). A depth sensor tells you the depth of the ROV. All signals and data are transmitted in real-time.
