Description

The Boxfish Luna is our next generation, underwater drone for professional cinematographers and natural history filmmakers and provides both a stable filming platform and real-time monitoring of production quality video. With reliably clean and natural imagery and quick deployment in any situation, filmmakers can fully concentrate on the shoot.

With precise, remotely operated controls, there is no human disturbance of wildlife behaviour, no need for additional divers or navigating cumbersome H&S regulations. Additionally, the Boxfish Luna opens up new movements and perspectives, makes it possible to reach depths inaccessible to divers and allows access to remote locations.

The Boxfish Luna captures up to 8K video and 50MP stills up to 1,000 metres underwater. Utilising advanced full-frame imaging from the Sony A7SIII or Sony ⍺1* and a new 200mm precision optical dome, the Boxfish Luna has been completely redesigned to allow filmmakers to perfectly capture underwater environments with brilliant clarity and ease of use.

With precision zoom control as well as shutter speed, aperture, focus, white balance, ISO and exposure mode directly accessible from the control station, the Boxfish Luna offers full creative control. Active stabilisation, full 6 degrees of freedom movement and precision controls ensure precise and smooth motion.
