I want to shoot a few rolls with a Rolleiflex underwater in a swimming pool. I'm taking her down to 18 inches.Is there a way to do this safely (for the camera) (I will survive) for a short shoot like this? I briefly considered a large Baggie but thought that might be dodgy.And can anyone share Don Williams's contact information with me?
That's not too difficult, it's in the signature below.There are 4 versions of the Rolleimarin and I have a version 4, that uses only a Rollei 3.5F. It's for sale, along with the camera, accessories, and spare parts, but not for rent.
I have two recommendations:1. Build yourself a box with an open top and a window in the side at the bottom so that you can hold it from the surface and easily get your taking lens down 18".
2. Buy or rent one from a repair company I know of in Northern California. There is a specialist there who owns 4-5 Rolleimarins and he would probably be pleased to rent one to you. I don't have his email address at hand but it's in this computer somewhere. If you want to contact him let me know and I will dig out his name, email address, and the website for the company he works for.
Good luck, and don't drop your camera in the water. Yes indeed, a baggie is not a good idea. DAW Don Williams 909 Kelsi Drive Moore, OK 73160-0703 405-735-9905 Mobile 858-352-8930
