WOSS Travel-X Housing
The WOSS Travel-X waterproof housing was designed for popular Palm-held format Sony cameras
for underwater digital shooting at depths up to 180 meters.
Designed to for both the beginner and advanced videographers
The WOSS Travel underwater housing was designed for popular Palm-held format Sony cameras for underwater digital shooting. The housing’s compact travel size and light-weight design, enables you to quickly and easily access the camera’s full range of functions and is rated to a depth of up to 180 meters. The device is made of professional quality, high-strength, low-weight aluminum alloy using CNC machining. The titanium oxide coating provides high resistance to mechanical impact, and reduces deterioration & corrosion. This versatile housing is compatible with the majority of Sony Palm-held models.
The LANC control system allows the operator to change camera models without changing the position of the operating controls and push-buttons. The top-carrying handle can be optionally mounted for more secure and convenient ways to carry your housing under water or on dry land. 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. Controls include: Record, White Balance, Electronic Zoom, camera navigation functions (Menu, Right, Left, Up, Down, and Select). The camera status and alarms can be easily checked by the LED on the back panel under the monitor. 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 high-contrast 4.3″ Samsung OLED 480 × 272 monitor is installed inside the housing rear cover. It is positioned on the optical axis of the camcorder, providing intuitive aiming at the subject. The monitor inclined 24° from vertical to utilize the camera monitor’s features and allows a comfortable head position. The monitor controls are located on the back panel allowing you to conveniently change its settings under water, reducing eye fatigue in conditions of weak illumination and increasing picture contrast in case of bright sunlight in shallow water. The monitor allows reviewing footage in high resolution with a realistic color rendition. Monitor operating time from fully charged battery is not less than nine hours. Depending on the exact camera model, the housing buoyancy complete with camcorder can be slightly negative or close to neutral.
