ROV Research & Development Update

Recent Luna software development has focused on fixes feature changes to create a more robust and intuitive workflow. Images from the Sony A1 can now be written to a USB stick in the control console during a dive. 

One of the biggest strengths of the Boxfish Luna is the quality of footage taken from the onboard Sony cameras. However, when working with the Sony Alpha 1 Luna variant and its 50-megapixel sensor, the optical clarity of the installed dome is crucial to ensure the details captured are as true-to-life as possible. Thus, we have conducted testing comparing the performance of the 250mm Nauticam glass dome and our Boxfish Luna dome. 

The results concluded that both domes perform exceptionally well and add minimal distortion on top of the installed lens. While the glass Nauticam dome slightly edged out our own, the Boxfish dome is more resilient and is rated to 1000m.
