Octopus Camera Operator

A free diver finds himself in an octopuses garden down at Wahine Memorial, Wellington, New Zealand, and ends up with an entertaining documentary of an octopuses desire for some fun.

"While trying to get video of a wild octopus, it suddenly dashed towards me and rips my shiny new camera from out of my hands, then swims off, all while the camera is recording! he swam away very quickly like a naughty shoplifter. after a 5 minute chase, I placed my spear-gun underneath him and he quickly and curiously grabbed hold of the gun as well, giving me enough time to reach in and grab the camera from out of his mouth. I didn't feel threatened at all during the whole ordeal. he seemed to be fixated on the shiny metallic blue digital camera. the only confusing behavior was how he dashed off with it like a thief haha. cheeky octopus."

Music by: Vincent Gillioz, Car Chase and Dalmatian Rex and the Eigentones with, Octopus I Love You.

The video was filmed with: a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FT2 (also called the DMC-TS2) in 720P movie mode. Filmed and edited by: Victor Huang.
