Paper Abstract

Almost twenty years ago, we were called by the French Submarine Alpine Club to adapt to Deep Sea Scuba Underwater Photography our new high-speed pulse camera with "Strobe", the "Torpedo" lighting system,originally developed by us for model tank propeller cavitation research at the Paris and Wageningen model tanks. Our earliest single assembly system was immediately successful in producing the first and only really sharp and color-correct underwater photos of marine life, geology and archaeology. It was fully effective only because it was designed as a complete integrated system with each component subsystem, camera, corrected lens, strobe light, controls and housings simultaneously designed for each other to fully accomplish the required job. This basic underwater systems engineering concept is the essential design philosophy of the modern Pegasus Photographic Systems applications described hereafter.
