The SeaLife AquaPod allows for closeup underwater photos and videos while maintaining a comfortable distance between you and your subject. It's ideal for capturing exciting shark images and video, as well as easily frightened ocean species. Rotate the camera on the AquaPod to easily take self-portrait images. Easy to use and hold steady, both above and below the water, the AquaPod camera pole extends from 18" to 53". To shoot still images with a SeaLife camera and the AquaPod, simply set the camera to "SPY" mode, allowing it to automatically shoot at set time intervals. For videos, just set the camera to video mode, press the shutter button, and start shooting. For best results, make smooth and gentle movements so the lens stays focused on your subject. The AquaPod is noncorrosive and resistant to saltwater, making it unique among other monopods and the perfect underwater photography accessory. The AquaPod includes a wrist strap and a mount for GoPro cameras. Also comes with anodized aluminum and stainless steel hardware.
