"Use an image. It's worth a thousand words."

Words which ring truer today than when first spoken.

Images, once a bonus to any project, are now a requirement. And when the subject is a thousand meters underwater, capturing the right image requires more than just a camera. Marine Imaging Technologies sells and rents off-the-shelf housings or complete systems for a variety of cameras. Whether the requirement is 5 meters for 30 days or 5,000 meters for 3 hours, we can design the imaging system for the project.

Scotopic Camera System

An ultra low light deep camera system

The Sony UMC is the unblinking eye of the system. Using Sony’s latest model creates opportunities to capture images in the low light situations found in the abyssopelagic regions of our oceans.

Lensing includes the SONY SEL 35mm Prime and the Sony SEL 28-135mm telephoto

With a total length of less than half a meter, the titanium housing and glass dome are rated for deeper than 6000m. The 18cm diameter housing is designed for minimal hydrodynamic impact.

Chassis alignment pins are built into the dome cap, insuring chassis stability and lens alignment.

The Mono Telemetry Transceiver enables communication and live streaming via a single fiber optic line.
