Video: Divers of the Dark with Canon 5D Mk III
By Joseph Tepper, December 11, 2012 @ 09:00 AM (EST)

We are constantly impressed by the quality of the work from so-called amateur underwater photographers and videographers.

The appearance of HDSLR video – that’s shooting HD video with your SLR camera – has certainly opened up the world of video to still shooters. If you still aren’t buying this whole “take TV documentary-quality video with your DSLR” fad—you might want to check out the amazing cave footage below.

Shot by “Divers of the Dark,” the video explores all the topside preparation and amazing structure of underwater caves in the south of France--all with a Canon 5D Mk III DSLR in Aquatica housing.

Now that you are itching to shoot some HDSLR video of your own, swim over to our “Holiday 2012 Buyer’s Guide” for some suggestions.
