Paralenz went into liquidation back in October 2022.
Martin Holmberg, a Danish product designer, came up with the concept for a dedicated underwater action camera in 2015. In 2017, he co-created and launched the first Paralenz Dive Camera model with three partners. Their monetary goal was quickly met, thanks to Kickstarter.
Paralenz started their work by interviewing divers, instructors, and dive shops about their experiences with existing action cameras and what they wanted in a diving camera. We used this knowledge in polls we posted in various forums, and gradually we began to piece together the overall needs of potential users. Then we began the camera’s actual engineering and development.
The Vaquita and the 799-euro Vaquita 2nd Gen were the current models from Paralenz, which is based in Rodovre near Copenhagen.
