Here is an interesting article regarding James Cameron’s use of 30 Atomos Samurai recorders that were installed into his unique submersible submarine, to record some awesome footage 11km below the ocean’s surface.
Cameron – best known for creating fictional worlds on film (Avatar, Titanic, The Abyss) spent about three hours at the deepest point in the Mariana Trench, Challenger Deep, some 200 miles (322 km) southwest of Guam, photographing and attempting to collect samples from the deep for research.
“James needed to control all the recording and playback functions in a very confined space in the submersible,” said Jeromy Young, CEO and Founder of Atomos. “So we specially modified our operating system, Atomos, so that all Samurai functions could be initiated simultaneously from one computer.”
