DIY Adjustable Buoyancy Devices for Underwater Camera Strobe arms

A little story about how I came to make my own adjustable floats for my underwater camera rig, along with some instructions of how to make them yourself 🙂 You’re welcome. This little project started after a foolish omission while ordering an additional strobe for my Sony A7R II Nauticam housing.  I have 2 Nauticam carbon float arms (costing upwards of 75GBP) that I attach directly to … Continue reading DIY Adjustable Buoyancy Devices for Underwater Camera Strobe arms
