How to marine-ise an SR3 camera

Recommended Posts

Hi there everyone,

 

Greetings!

 

Looking for inputs from senior and experienced Cinematographers as to how best to water proof a camera and the lens.

The camera in question is an SR3 to be used for prolonged use at sea, but certainly not underwater.

 

Is a splash bag good enough?

how do you cover the lens front element from salt?

 

regards

If it's not being submerged a splash bag should be enough. The lens would normally be protected inside the splash bag with a window to see through. Something like Rain-x helps keep water drops off.

Dom,

thanks for the reply. I have never had the need so far to use a splash bag. So i don't know much about it.

The splash bag will be able to accommodate an 8mm and 11-110 zeiss zoom? how big is the window? does it have a glass port?

I will google rain-x.

thanks
