Deep Explorers document dive to USS Monitor with Fujinon lens

Diving professionals from Deep Explorers used a Fujinon XS13x3.3BRM wide-angle lens to document a historic dive off the coast of Cape Hatteras, NC, in June.

In cooperation with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Office of the Marine Sanctuaries and Rutgers University Institute of Marine and Coastal Science, Deep Explorers gathered data on the wreck of the USS Monitor, a U.S. Navy warship that has been resting 230ft below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean for more than 150 years.

The company produced a series of video segments, entitled “Graveyard of the Atlantic,” which was posted on the NOAA Web site during the expedition. A Sony PDW F350 XDCAM camera paired with the Fujinon XS13x3.BRM lens served as the primary topside camcorder for recording interviews and stand-ups of divers and scientists conducting research of the wreck and its surrounding marine habitat.

The team opted for Sony HVR-Z7U HDV camcorders in Amphibico as the primary underwater camera rig. All footage was edited on location using a combination of Apple Final Cut Pro and PC-based Adobe Premiere Pro CS3.
