Yeah, but not with a serious camera. Easy to do with small consumer cameras, trickier for large screen film projection or BluRay HD as target. We're shooting most of the film on RED, the on-boat stuff Canon 5DmkII with L glass on it, in an Aquatech splash housing and custom mount that fits onto a Jefe at the front handle screws. That's the lightest true full HD, near film quality setup but its still about 5 lbs. Then we put a waterproof mic - lav size - on the helmet strap to capture sound of paddler breathing, etc
Still not sure how it all plays. Or if Fred can pull it off on Crystal Gorge without trashing 10K worth of gear. Insurance.....
