Camera & Lighting options


#1

I use the SeaPerch ROV build in my classroom but am having a difficult time finding a reasonably priced underwater camera option. Streaming first person view is preferable but not necessary.

For cameras I have found:

- GoPro Hero3 ($200) + dive housing ($60) ... not streaming

- Astak CM-7500 1080p HD Action Pro 3 ($125) ... not streaming

We use our ROVs to explore the lakes in our area so lighting for these cameras will also be necessary but I have not looked into those options yet.

Thanks so much for your ideas!
