Lighting Rig

Boxfish 360 lighting rig is developed to film in pitch dark conditions and to recover the spectrum of color in deeper depths.

The kit includes custom adaptors to mount directly to the camera, an additional float pack for neutral buoyancy and a custom hardcase. Reef, wreck or cave, this is a must-have accessory for the professional VR film maker!

Monopod

An extremely lightweight yet sturdy 5-section carbon fiber monopod that enables you to capture steady shots and eliminate close operator parallax errors. The monopod has an anti-rotation shaft, so its twist locks can be disengaged all at once to deploy each leg stage instantly, making setup a breeze.

Tripod

The carbon fiber tripod is a sturdy support for your Boxfish 360, which offers a number of advanced features that ensure its stability and reliable performance. The tripod features ergonomically designed rubber twist locks on each leg. Because the Ssticks are non-rotating, both of the locks can be disengaged at once with a single twist of the wrist. This enables extremely fast setup. All tripods are customised inhouse for the addition of stainless steel components, which eliminates corrosion risk in the field.

Photogrammetry

Due to the innovative design and complimentary 70+ degree lens overlap of Boxfish 360, we are able to use the camera for photogrammetry image capture. Each camera captures data from the spherical environment and the overlap allows for easy stitching of the results. This means another valuable data set can be collected from the already outstanding footage. More about in our case study.
