DeeperBlue Gets a Look Inside Intova’s Imaging Innovations for Spring 2016

Intova knows underwater cameras. Their housings are user-friendly and robust, and most are rated to a minimum depth of 330 feet.

At DEMA Show 2015, company President Graeme Esarey was kind enough to take a few minutes to tell what they have in store for the spring of 2016.

There are three new cameras to look out for: the entry-level Duo, the Nova 2, and the Edge X2 action camera. Each level builds on the next, offering a spectrum of options for photographers whether they’re motivated by onboard features or price point.

The Duo is the perfect model for introducing new photographers to the world of underwater image-making. It will capture photos and social-media-ready video at 720p to a depth of 100 feet. The Duo has a simple three-button control system and comes in three frosted colors — clear, orange, and turquoise. With a price point of US$39.99, this model is perfect for kids, vacationers, and those who want to experiment with underwater shots without breaking the bank on expensive equipment.

For the photographer who’s ready to take the next step, Intova offers the Nova 2. The new model has fewer buttons than its predecessor and a larger LCD screen. It also incorporates a side door with an interchangeable battery and three ports, including an external microphone. The Nova 2 comes with 8 megapixels of resolution, a three-button RAF remote, and is the only action camera on the market with an onboard flash/video light. This one will go to 330 feet and retails for $249.

If you crave a few more bells and whistles, the Edge X2 may be the camera for you. It utilizes the same kind of Ambarella chip you’ll find in GoPros to bring you 16-megapixel photo resolution and 1080 video. The real standout feature of the Edge X2 is Wi-Fi connectivity with the Intova app (both iOS and Android). You can use it to view your footage as your camera captures it, and even control the zoom right from your phone. Budget $349 for this model.

Whether you’re just getting your feet wet, are ready to take the plunge, or find yourself already in deep, when it comes to underwater photography, Intova‘s got a camera for you.
