The WOSS underwater housing is designed for the professional camcorders, the SONY NEX-FS700 and NEX-FS100 enabling underwater digital shooting at depths up to 120 meters. The WOSS housing is machined from high-strength aluminum alloy using a state of the art CNC machine. It is chemically coated with titanium oxide which provides high resistance to mechanical impacts, deterioration, and corrosion. Combined digital and mechanical camera controls provide access to all of the camera functions during dives. A built-in weight balancing system enables you to compensate the buoyancy of housing with the camcorder, arms & lights, so that it approaches neutral buoyancy and horizontal trim.
A progressive system of external mounts enables the mounting of the housing on an underwater scooter or another base device, or tripod. The installation of additional equipment and accessories on the exterior of the housing is possible. The specially designed top-carrying handle has a comfortable easy grip and the lower ball brackets can be used for attachment of arm systems. This allows fot the compact placement of both lights and arms along the housing and makes its transportation comfortable. Ergonomically located electronic and mechanical controls complete with metal-polymeric handles can be adjusted for both tilt angle and linear position relative to the control panels (2D adjusting). This provides a convenient, professional level of control over the camcorder during underwater shooting.
In case of water ingress into the housing, our special notification system automatically disconnects the power supply from the housing electronic system, switches the camcorder off to avoid short circuit, and gives a blue blinking alarm signal that notifies of an emergency.
The housing rear cover contains the high-contrast 5.6″ OLED [1280 × 720] built-in monitor. It is positioned on the camcorder’s optical axis, providing intuitive aiming at the video subject. The monitor window is inclinated 20° from the vertical allowing complete utilization of the camera monitor’s features and a comfortable head position. The monitor controls are located on the back panel and allow the operator to change its settings under water , reducing eyes fatigue in conditions of weak illumination and increasing picture contrast in case of bright sunlight in shallow water.The monitor allows the operator to review footage in high resolution with a realistic color rendition. The monitor operating time from a fully charged battery is not less than eight hours.
The housing can be fitted with 4K recorder (optional, 4K recorder is purchased separately).
