Check out the video about making drop videos!
In short, drop-videos are taken while on a boat and lowering a video camera under the surface, close to the bottom. We take 60 seconds long videos and analyze the videos later at the office. From the videos we can analyze the bottom quality and species seen on the video.
When taking drop-videos, it is very important to hold the camera steady. If there are waves, the camera needs to be moved with the movement of the waves, so that we get good video quality, and it doesn’t look like the camera is on a roller coaster.
