In this video I share the methods that I use to get awesome underwater video for relatively cheap while snorkeling and diving. I show how my DIY underwater gopro rig works. The rig has handles to make video more stable. It also has an option to attach a gorilla tripod for positioning the gopro on the bottom to let the fish swim close. Because of the wide angle on the gopro the best way to get good footage is to get very close to the subject. The tripod allows the fish to come close without being scared by the cameraman. The rig also has an option to attach two dive torches fitted with light diffusers so that they can be used as video lights. This makes for much better video because the lights illuminate the foreground bringing out much more color in the fish and coral. The lights were bright enough that I was able to go out at night in total darkness and still get decent footage. Finally I use a backscatter flip 4 red filter for color correction below around 5 feet of water. I end by explaining how useful a color correct software is when trying to bring out the true colors in underwater video. I used this rig both snorkeling and scuba diving and it worked very well.
