Presented by the National Geographic Society, James Cameron’s Deepsea Challenge 3D opened in theaters nationwide last week. Using a RED EPIC MYSTERIUM-X as his primary camera on the Deepsea Challenger – a purpose-built deep-diving submersible – Cameron’s latest documentary takes audiences to the lowest point on the planet.
Cameron’s EPIC MYSTERIUM-X provided him with superior color and detail at his maximum dive depth of nearly 11,000 meters. Even in the harsh, high-pressure conditions the camera was able to stream a live feed from the sub’s forward-facing view-port between Cameron’s knees to a high-definition display in front of his face – all while recording IMAX-quality 5K RAW content.
The EPIC MYSTERIUM-X helped Cameron capture compelling shots of a famous – but largely unexplored – stretch of the ocean floor. To see the results of his dive, and the path that led him there, check out Deepsea Challenge 3D in theaters now.
