Many of us have known Hector since he was working with his father Joe Ortega at Central Machining and SL Cine, where they made superb lightweight magnesium mags and modified ARRI Medical cameras. These were standard for Steadicam and lightweight handheld shooting. SL Cine’s deep-water housings for their SL Cine camera as well as the Arriflex 235 were the antecedents of their new RED deep-water housing.
