An underwater photographer was peacefully cruising along a reef when this speedy octopus snaked out an arm and grabbed his Lumix away. The cephalopod then proceeded to jet away at top speed, while filming the whole thing -- unfortunately, with more than a couple of its thumbs covering the lens.
You can watch the rest of the story below. The soundtrack is by Dalmatian Rex and the Eigentones; the camera is a waterproof and shockproof model by Panasonic.
luvz the story
I wanna know how he finally got the octopus off of his spear gun... probably pulled it out of the water and the octopus realized there was only air around him and let go
well first, pwned. second he proly STABED HIM IN THE NECK WITH A KNIFE to get the speargun back.
You got Jacked Jack! Lucky you wernt wearing your nikes too.
So how does this fit into popular science?
Hey paul actually its the new Panasonic TS2 (aka FT2) instead of the TS1. The owner of the camera/video is here commenting on it. Also the TS1 only goes under 10ft before the seals fail while the TS2 can do 30ft plus it is far more shock resistant for when the octopus beats it around :D
Here is the original video in proper HD
Amazing story my friend. I am so amazed the octopus didn't kill you when you went back there for your camera! I hope next time, you won't accidentally get strangled if you lose your camera again!
Off to photograph some prawn
I read in your blog.Good thinking in your topics.I love it.
I'd have turned the octopus into calamari.
That's what he gets for a snatch-and-grab job.
Amazing footage from a camera that only costs $233. I'm buying one for surfing j.mp/ctFzVx
I will never eat "pulpo" again. What a great movie
Cool!I hope everyone has a happy Earth Day. That goes for all the other Earth Days I've missed.
