Above water inspection


(Russ T. Bercle) #1

Has anyone done any temporary modifications to get video above the waters surface while still giving the ROV the ability to navigate? Any help, ideas or photos would be great.

Thanks

Do you mean a second camera on the ROV?

I was hoping the actual ROV camera some how proping it up out of the water. Worst case I could use a GoPro above. But would be best if we could see what the camera is seeing during the inspection.

Hi Russ,

I’ve seen a few people do this by propping up the main enclosure with a bracket so that it is sitting above the water. More buoyancy is necessary to hold it out of the water. I don’t have any photos I can share, unfortunately! Maybe someone else does!

Etienne had his tilt zoom on TOP of the ROV for indpecting the roof in tank I belueve it was. Its Easy to an extra camera from a 3inch enclosure.
