How to Build an Underwater Video Tripod


This video is for the DIY divers. It explains how I created a custom underwater video tripod with rubber collar that rotates around the housing macro port. The loc-line tripod is extremely stable and very quick to adjust for shooting on any surface. This port-mount tripod can even be combined with a Joby Gorillapod tripod in order to support the back of the housing for shooting on flat surfaces (e.g. sand).

I’ve used this underwater video tripod quite a few times in the last two weeks and it’s 1) performing really well, and 2) holding up really well. A successful project!
