Smaco test dive with Frogwoman Lucy [2nd video of Project F]

So, for today I have another short video where Frogwoman Lucy tested a 1L Smaco tank.

These mini scuba tanks can be filled by an adapter or by a manual pump(!). Filling these with a pump is very exhausting and takes some time, but it works.

Disclaimer: Don’t get crazy ideas! These can be used in shallow water, but if you want to really dive in open water with these, get a scuba certificate first!

And even with a full 1L tank you only have something like 5-10 minutes of oxygen. These tanks are just a fun gadget, not for real diving….

 

 

Smaco test dive, 1080p, 60 frames, 01:45 minutes

In this video, Lucy is wearing an Aquasphere pursuit smooth skin wetsuit and neoprene socks, and a hood.

I have mentioned the difficulties we had to face during the shooting (lighting, camera settings, no fins possible, etc.).

So, the picture quality is ok but could be better for sure.

I will work on that for the 2nd shooting.

And I will then include more close-ups and above the surface shots 😉

 

Some preview pictures:

The picture quality in the video does actually look a little better than the screenshots

A short trailer that also includes scenes from this video:

Yeah, the aspect that we couldn’t use fins is really a problem here, but I think Frogwoman Lucy does a good job, especially as her first dive in scuba gear was just about half an hour earlier!

The (official) harness of the Smaco tank is a rather cheap construction in a “one size fits everyone” size…. and we had to make some adjustments so the tank was positioned a little better in the second half of the video. Still, there is room for improvement so it should be possible that the tank would stay tight above the belly.

The tank was only filled one-third but still, there was quite some air left after this video, and I used it myself on another video. That one will be posted later on as well.

 

P.S.: The red valve you can see on the tank is the tank valve that regulates the airflow. The fact that it is positioned in front of the diver is an interesting aspect for possible future peril videos with that tank 😉

*EDIT* November 1:

It is available in the VIP club this month (November)!

Here is a quick overview of the content of this month:

You can download these videos in the VIP club, but only for your personal use.

Please don’t share them with anyone…. anywhere!

It’s pretty simple, I had to spend a lot of money, especially on scuba gear and location rent.

A lot of my …limited… savings were used up for that.

If I don’t make enough money with these videos…..I won’t be able to make new videos.

So…. I hope you appreciate these videos and want to see more in the future.

Regarding the editing of the video, here you can find some more info:

On Sunday I wanna post a longer video that will be available to buy on a special site on this blog.

  1. Wow! She looks amazing! I’m even more impressed that this was her first time in a wetsuit and scuba gear. She really looks the part.

    • Yeah, I was worried that the owner would ask me to pay for the repairs.
      So far nothing happened, and the damage I did wasn’t that much and was only barely visible…at least from above the water.
      But if more would have used fins (I only used them for 10 minutes) then that odd thick foil would have been in much worse condition afterward 😉
      Next time I will make sure the pool has a “normal” underground like tiles or so that can’t be damaged that easily.
