Now that the Downunder ROV is back in action Downunder ROV , I’ve been working on the quality of the video footage. One of my current challenges is the reflection back off particles in the water when I use the ROV lights.
A quick google search has flagged this as a fairly common issue with a couple of possible solutions:
Move the light fixture further away from the camera so that the light reflected from the particles doesn’t hit the camera lens.
Use a low light camera to reduce the need for external lighting.
I’m currently working on option 1 - anyone have any other solutions or ways to minimise the reflection?
