Insta360 ONE X2

Insta360 ONE X2

While the ONE X2 is waterproof to 10m, a dive depth of 45m can be reached by using an option-al dive case. It features stabilized 5.7K
360-degree video recording, updated FlowState image stabilization technology, and a special underwater shooting mode called “AquaVision,” which automatically balances color. The camera supports both HDR photo and video. It is able to capture and merge multiple images to increase
dynamic range, as well as reduce noise and maintain detail when shooting in low-light situations.

Inon UWL-95 Wide-Angle Wet Lens

By attaching an optional dome-lens unit, the field of view (underwater) can be increased up to 141°. Using the UWL-95 reduces the minimum focusing distance of the camera lens, according to the manufacturer.

Its weight is 605g topside, 396g underwater. The UWL-95 is depth-rated to 60m (200ft). As of April 2020, the wide-angle lens is compatible with the Olympus TG 3, 4, 5 and 6 series and with Sony RX100 M3, 4 and 5.

SeaLife Micro 3.0

The built-in 19mm equivalent f/2.8 lens has a field of view of 100°. The camera features an on-board 64 GB storage. Its battery provides enough energy for three hours of continuous use, according to the manufacturer. Compared to its predecessor, the Micro 3.0 offers faster burst shooting (10fps vs 5fps) and reduced shutter lag (0.1s vs 0.5s).
Other new functions are WiFi capability, time-lapse and burst shooting up to 10 fps. Furthermore, the Micro 3.0 now supports manual white balance. The camera is depth-rated to 60m (200ft).

Lomography Analogue Aqua Camera

The camera is available in two versions, pre-loaded with one of two Lomography films: Colour Negative 400 for classic analogue character or LomoChrome Purple for violet tones. Once the 27-exposure, pre-loaded film is full, it can be replaced with another roll. The Analogue Aqua operates on a single AA battery, features a basic fixed-focus, 31mm F9 lens, with allows one to focus on anything from 1m (3ft) to infinity. The camera has a permanent, fixed shutter speed of 1/120s. In addition, it features a built-in flash (with a recycle time of 15 seconds).

Nauticam WACP-2 Wide Angle Conversion Port

It is designed for full-frame cameras. Since it can focus on air, it is suitable for split-shots as well. When used with wide-angle zoom lenses, i.e. from Canon or Nikon, the wide-angle conversion port provides a field-of-view range from 140-72∞, depending on the lens model used.

Its lens construction consists of four elements in four groups. Its weight at the surface is 7.06kg, while underwater it is 0.85kg (when using the included float collar). The WACP2 is depth-rated to 100m.

Chasing Gladius Mini Underwater Drone

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).

Paralenz Vaquita

It also has 4K video with 60 frames per second or 1080p with 240 frames per second. It can shoot 12 MP RAW or JPG stills and has a built-in image stabilization. In addition, Vaquita now automatically tracks conductivity, temperature, depth and location (GPS) during a dive. The LCD display has a dive profile overlay, providing dive data on screen. The Paralenz app (for IOS and Android) serves as an intelligent dive log and media library, which automatically organizes all recorded footage neatly. The camera features a 1-inch IMX577 sensor by Sony.

Geneinno Titan Underwater Drone

The Titan underwater drone made by Geneinno is equipped with a 1/2.5-inch CMOS sensor to capture 8MP still photos and 4K video (with a fixed lens angle of 160°), and it can also stream a 1080p live view to the handheld controller. Two 1500-lumen lights help to bring light into the depths.

Its 9000mAh, 10.8-volt battery delivers a runtime of four hours per charge. The Titan can operate at depths up to 150m (492ft). Its maximum speed is 2m per second. Six controllable thrusters allow easy control of the drone. The Titan dimensions are 390 x 347 x 165mm and it weighs 4.4kg.
