MRMC Robotics Help Photographers Capture the Action

As an Official FINA Partner since 2007, and in order to support professional photographers, Nikon Professional Services (NPS) set up a depot in the Duna Arena offering support such as camera equipment inspection, cleaning, and temporary loans to professional photographers during the 19th FINA World Championships Budapest 2022.

Advances in technology have provided a platform for remote robotic photography, which, in a nutshell, means cameras can be placed and controlled in virtually any environment or location on the planet.  From synchronised swimming, high diving and everything in between – there’s plenty of excitement to be photographed in the aquatic sporting arena. Previously, much of the action was lost underwater; with dives, twists, turns and plenty of kicking legs, some of the most captivating moments were never caught on camera – until now.

Remotely controlled from a master server and client, photographers have full control of pan, tilt, roll, zoom and focus – along with the camera’s aperture, exposure and a number of other settings. Photos are transferred over FTP straight from the camera, which gives you the ability to have the photos immediately viewable from anywhere around world.
