Recording your dives with Screencastify

We tried something new on our latest trip and test dives in Lake Tahoe. We used Screencastify to record the dives. It worked great!! 

In addition to capturing footage from the dive, it also captures a small video of the cockpit control room and adds commentary from the pilots. Hard to imagine diving without this plugin again! You can see all of our dives from the trip on OpenExplorer:

Implosions are rumored to hold some interest, or Depth test II Debriefing Stage

I finally have some footage to show. :)

The Video is filmed at 90 frames per second, but played at 24 frames per second. so Slo-mo.

Skip ahead to 14:49 10 sec before the 2.6 endcap fails. The estimated depth is 147m! Nice!

The Next point skip to is 19:52. At 180m, the 1/2" endcap made from 2 x 1/4" disks fails 10 seconds from that point.(at 20:02) If you watch closely you will see the face seal being forced out just before the implosion.
