Although Fiji is a long way from anywhere when you live in the UK, Fiji is literally on the 'other side of the world'.
When I visited there in March 2013 and spent a week aboard the wonderful live-aboard Nai'a I was delighted to experience some incredible diving and to witness some of the most healthy and most colourful reef systems in the world. Fiji truly is a nation of 'Rainbow Waters'.
This trip was used to test the Sony PMW200 with Gates Underwater housing prior to using it on a broadcast documentary for NHK Cosmomedia. I was very impressed with the codec and shooting XDCAM 422 50mbps gives a great deal of flexibility in post. As always using the Gates housing was a pleasure. There is a very good reason why they are considered the best in the business!
