I'll burst the bubble, yes the occy comes and holds the camera and may even "steal" it, but when it is shown on the spear gun, it is at different times. If you look closely at 1:44 seconds you can see the spear gun is actually loaded, then at 2:06 to 2:12 it is unloaded, then at 2:13 onwards it is loaded again. Which makes me think that it is not continious footage and may have been put together to make a nice "story".

Hmmm your right at some times the gun is cocked and sometimes it not, very suspicious.

That was so adorable! That diver was super lucky that he/she got to get so close to that octopus! I'm super jealous. I really think the octopus was just playing with him. Great video.
