FAQ

Q:Do I need to hire and operator or technician?

A: While it is not necessary, it is recommended. Shooting underwater requires experience. Not only for the environment that you are shooting in, but also in dealing with equipment that has the potential to get damaged do to the environment. Experienced crew know what to look for and how to manage camera gear in wet environments.  They know how to prepare the housing so that the camera does not damage it or cause a failure & to look for possible water entry points. Our operators have years of experience with splashbags and housings of every type. This experience in the long run can save you valuable production time and costs. If you chose to operate it yourself, please provide yourself plenty of time to familiarize yourself with it, as well as testing it to insure that everything works and seals properly.

Q: What special connector do I use from the regulator in order to cycle fresh air through the T-bag via its intake valve?

A: A scuba low pressure breather hose quick connect.

Q: Can I use the RED Touch or any other monitor in the RED LCD housing?

A: Unfortunately, No. Only the RED 5.6″ LCD can be used.

Q: How deep can the T-bag be submerged?

A: 6-7ft max.

Q: Can a wireless follow focus and/or video transmitter be used?

A: Maybe, but it probably might not work through water; only at or above the water level. We cannot say for sure if any particular system will work properly or at all.

Q: How do I get the T-bag to submerge more?

A: You can carefully add some weight to the inside of the bag if necessary: ex. a dive belt weight wrapped in a soft towel.
