I must say, Seacam gets the award for most innovative imagery products at DEMA 2007. Focused on the professional and high end amateur shooters, Seacam introduced a fantastic pole-cam package, complete with an electronic eyepiece adapter that feeds into a remote monitor and/or monitor glasses.
The monitor glasses seem to be branded versions of the popular video glasses used to watch dvd’s and ipod videos – and they’re pretty cool! The remote monitor is the hub of the system, connecting to the pole bulkhead and providing the signal to the glasses. The pole itself is a little on the heavy side, but it’s obviously high quality stuff, connecting to the camera with a ball mount. I can’t believe I forgot to write down exactly how long the pole telescopes, but I estimate about 7 feet or so. Pricing for the set is not formally established yet, but expect the kit to be in the $4,500 range.
In addition to the pole cam system, Seacam displayed a prototype of their new Sea Flash 150 strobe, a compact version of the previous 250 model. Harald Hordosch showed us the flexible power settings, and removable battery, and explained that we should expect it to perform as a powerful, high quality, compact strobe.
Lastly, Seacam has released a new tripod and monopod, unfortunately they were significantly upstaged by the uber cool pole-cam!
