The North Carolina coast was known as the American Shooting Gallery for German U-boats during WWII due to America's reluctance to officially enter the war. This delay in combating the U-boat presence resulted in the unrestricted sinking of countless ships. Today these ship as well as enemy U-boats lie on the bottom of the ocean as mute testaments to history and provide some of the best wreck diving experiences in the world.
This footage is also a testament to how well Sony's FS100 performs capturing the full spectrum of color even at depth where most of the red and yellow light is filtered out by the water. Every time I shoot underwater with this camera I'm more impressed with it.
