Video: Backscatter Films New Pegasus Thruster Scooters
By Matt J. Weiss, August 21, 2011 @ 01:12 AM (EST)

Our retail partner, Backscatter, recently tested the new hands-free Pegasus Thruster scooters, which are mounted to the back of the tank.

Berkley White, owner of Backscatter, took some amazing footage of a diver using one of the Pegasus Thrusters.  To shoot this video, Berkley used a 5D Mark II and the new Gates VL24 LED lights, which speak for themselves in the footage. 

At $3,595.00 for the pro package which includes two battery packs, smart charger, and custom Pelican travel case, it doesn't break the bank either (at least in underwater photography standards).

If you are looking for a scooter, or in the mood for something new, check out this video and then head to Backscatter to get all the full specs.
