The Squid Underwater Drop Camera System

By accommodating GoPro HD cameras in our patented underwater housing, the Squid offers you the convenience of live streaming video, with the utility of full UHD 4K, presentation-ready footage. The hard-wired external power supply means you'll never run out of batteries again! Underwater camera control* allows you to start and stop recording whenever you like, reducing editing time and keeping your memory card free for the important shots!

Pro Squid has the following features:

  • Crystal clear, zero latency live feed, with up to 4k video recorded to camera memory card;
  • Compatible with any TV/monitor or plotter which accepts a composite video feed (Squid cable has a male RCA connector, compatible display devices have a port typically marked as "AV In" or similar);
  • External power supplied from the boat 12v source to the camera means no battery changes;
  • * The Pro Squid is supplied in one of two modes, with underwater camera control possible in mode "1":
  1. Live video feed, underwater control, no external power
  2. Live underwater feed, external power, above water control of camera functions
  • Compatible with GoPro Hero 3/3+ and 4 cameras** (for GoPro 5/6 and Garmin Virb Ultra 30 cameras, see our Squid Cast system here);
  • Dual viewing modes allows the Squid to be used facing forwards as a drop camera, or rear facing as a high speed tow camera
  • Kevlar cable grip simplifies camera handling and protects cable
