The device enables users to capture photos or video directly to internal storage or live stream in real-time. Furthermore. the unique stabilising mechanism, combined with low light sensors, and an image quality optimisation algorithm promises stunning underwater footage.

Equipped with LED lights on either side of the camera for 135-degree illumination, underwater subjects and the path ahead will be clear. Each dimmable light is rated at 1200 lumens.

Additionally, Gladius Advanced Pro is perfect for keen divers. Not only can it capture images and video, but it can check conditions before a dive. This greatly reduces safety risks, especially when exploring unfamiliar areas.

Powerful and portable

The polymer lithium-ion batteries support up to three hours of continuous shooting. They can be fully recharged in an hour and a half. Also, you get low battery protection, which notifies you when the battery power drops below 10%. When the power is below 5%, the system will enter lock mode in order to avoid permanent damage to the battery.


Jacky Yang, Chief of Marketing of Chasing Innovation, said:

“The Gladius Advanced Pro can be used by photographers, filmmakers, and underwater explorers to learn more about our oceans and capture stunning content easily. Whether using it to live stream on Facebook, or photograph unusual fish – the Gladius Pro has you covered.”

Price and availability

The GLADIUS Advanced Pro has an RRP of $1,999 and is available on Chasing Innovation’s website.
