    VIDEO-CAM Paralenz DIVE CAMERA

    Appeared in DIVER November 2017
    ACTION CAMERAS ARE A tempting proposition for underwater film-making. They're small enough not to dominate your dive, completely automatic and fitted with an ultra-wide-angle lens, so all you need to do is point them in roughly the right direction and press the button to record footage of your dive.
    The only drawback is that action cameras are designed primarily for use topside, and underwater results can be disappointing without colour filters or video-lights - and then you’ve lost the whole point of a video camera the size of a box of Oxo cubes.
