This is the big one
Dual colour camera sees dolphins on a dark night, lit only by their bioluminescent wakes
Now we’re off to find a giant squid. We’ve been planning and building for almost a year, dreaming for a decade. Are we ready?
Gupster 5 has been designed on the basis of the shortcomings of the previous 4. The cameras have been evolving for years, and the new dual colour system has proved it’s worth in Belize and Mexico - to film things no one has ever filmed before. Now we want it to show us things no one has seen before.
The underwater housings have been depth tested, the deep sea cable communicates with the recording computers. Our boat, the Makaira is waiting in the harbour for us to start rigging the cable support system. We’re as ready as we’ll ever be.
