Red Epic, Red Scarlet and enables underwater digital shooting at depths up to 120 meters.
Designed to match the needs and creative passion of professional videographers
The WOSS PRO-MX underwater housing is designed for professional cameras and the exacting demands of the professional, allowing underwater digital shooting at depths up to 120 meters. The WOSS PRO-MX is made of high-strength aluminum alloy using our CNC machining. The house is machined in our state of the art facility allowing for quality assurance at every stage of the manufacturing process. A titanium oxide coating provides high resistance to mechanical impacts, deterioration, and corrosion. A combination of digital and mechanical camera controls provide access to all camera functions, necessary for professional operation during diving. A built-in weight balancing system enables you to quickly and easily compensate the buoyancy and the trim of the housing with the camcorder, arms & light so that it approaches neutral buoyancy and trim. A progressive system of external mounts enables you to mount the housing on an underwater scooter or another base device, such as a tripod. The installation of additional equipment and accessories on the housing is possible. The top-carrying handle is designed to be strong and comfortable. The lower ball brackets are used for attachment of the arms system, allowing compact and flexible placement of lights & arms along the housing, making 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 full, convenient, and professional level of control over the camcorder during underwater shooting. In case of water ingress into the housing, the 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 an emergency.
The housing rear cover contains the high-contrast Sony CLM-V55 Monitor 5”LCD WVGA. It is positioned on the camcorder’s optical axis, providing intuitive aiming at the subject. The monitor window is inclined 20° from the vertical allowing for utilization of all the camera monitor’s features and comfortable head position. The monitor allows the operator to review footage in high resolution with a realistic color rendition. Monitor operating time from the battery is the same as the operating time of the camera. The top of the housing has a port for connecting an external monitor.
The progressive weight system enables for changing the buoyancy within 1.6kg.
