Tracking is fine, but straight line swimming is slower due to the size of the camera housing. One of those tiny Oceanhaus housings would be awesome- but not on my bank account.;)

Nice shots

Here in Michigan - same frustration - particularly since walleye is arguably the best testing fish we have in the great lakes. I've been thinking of getting one of those little olympus rigs based on some other photos posted on this site - this adds to the appeal.

That's great stuff Jon. Very inspirational to me too. Up here I find sometimes I am surrounded by hundreds of Perch that are too small to shoot but would make fantastic pictures. Next year I'm going to get on a project like this.
I scubadived up here for years and rarely saw fish. Never saw a Perch, Pike, or Walleye until I started spearfishing this year. I'd like to get some good pics for the local dive stores, to show them that there is some great diving up here in the North. Especially if you leave the tanks at home ;)
Cheers,
Erik Y.

Oh Jon, you put my envy on endurance test!

Without having any mechanical expertise, I think it would be really hard to mount camera on a euro gun. The only place on the top is the handle and the top of it is quite thin. Maybe the only otion is to have the housing mounted under the handle where the reel usually resides. The other option is to have it under the barrel on cilinders, which may also be used as shaft guides...

Hmmm...

Have you uploaded any of those movies to have a look. Or would you care to send it to me so i can see the quality. I am currently thinking of a sony p120 with housing for spearing footage.

Wishbone,
I am not sure how you would mount it onto a Euro gun. I originally thought about doing it to my RA, but just couldn't think of an, easy, way to do it.

Shaneshac,
I don't have them posted anywhere, but Ted (unidna) have been talking about putting together our own web page just so we can poist our videos and pictures. The whole idea is on hold right now since he is getting married tomorrow. Once he gets back form the honeymoon we'll put some more thought into it.
