This Equinox HD6 mechanical underwater housing is designed for the Canon VIXIA HF S10 and HF S100 camcorders. The corrosion-resistant housing is constructed from rugged and durable PVC with 1" cast acrylic face plates and stainless-steel hardware; it is rated to a depth of up to 330' (100.6 m).

Features include 5 manual controls: power/standby, record-start/stop, zoom, photo, and memory switch. The housing includes a blue water color-correcting filter, and a wide-angle lens. The housing also features the Ballast Release System. For easy travel, or if trouble occurs on a dive, simply pull the quick-release pin on the wings in order to release the wings and handle (ballast), the housing now becomes positive and shoots to the surface. The camcorder monitor will open approximately 45° in the housing. For full use of the camcorder monitor, the Equinox 2.5" LCD 6" Monitor Back w/ 1/8 Mini Plug (available separately) is required.

    leaky housing [...]

    Comments about Equinox HD6 Underwater Housing for Canon VIXIA HF S10 & HF S100:

    i have been shooting underwater stills for about 20 years and after experimenting shooting video on a dslr i decided to make the switch to an hd video camera and housing. so i purchased a new video housing and hd camera to take on a five month trip to film whale sharks in honduras (utila), followed by a two month trip to ecuador (galapagos liveaboard and isla de la plata). i headed off with my new equipment, amazed at the opportunity of the year ahead of me. the housing leaked at 40 feet on its first use in honduras, a small slow leak but one which made it impossible to use the housing. five months of seeing whale sharks every other day and not a second of hd footage shot. i returned to the states sent the housing back to the manufacturer [..] back to me "repaired" and ready for my trip to ecuador. on the first dive in ecuador the "repaired" housing leaked again, this time at 30 feet but now it was no longer a small leak, this time it flooded in, filling the housing. my video camera was ruined in a matter of seconds. now i'm in the galapagos followed by a month as a volunteer on a giant manta research project at isla de la plata and yet again not a second of footage and a ruined video camera. in both honduras and ecuador i had pro cameramen look at the housing and in both instances the consensus was that there was no problem with the o rings but the latches that secured the back of the housing didn't seem to be pulling tight enough to create a water tight seal. [...] it seems to me my housing was a manufacturing LEMON, it has never been water tight, not even after being repaired and i have never been able to use it for its intended purpose, to shoot video! i've never asked the maker to pay for my ruined camera or to compensate me for the tens of thousands of dollars i spent to go on trips which were specifically to shoot underwater video. they seem to think that they should send me the housing back and i should just buy another video camera and try using the housing again.

      Comments about Equinox HD6 Underwater Housing for Canon VIXIA HF S10 & HF S100:

      THIS IS A PROFESSIONAL PRODUCT . THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT BRANDS OF UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY AND THERE ARE MANY DIFFERENT BRANDS FOR UNDERWATER VIDEOGRAPHY . THESE CAMERAS AND VIDEOS WERE LIMITED TO THE MARKET FOR MANY YEARS , WHICH MADE IT A BIG INVESTMENT TRYING TO ACTUALLY FIND A PROFESSIONAL PRODUCT . WHEN IT COMES TO THE CHANGE OF TECHNOLOGY IT DOES OPEN THE DOOR TO THE NEW . UNDERWATER VIDEOGRAPHY IS STILL NEW AND ACTUALLY HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A WHILE . IT IS A EXPENSIVE TRADE . WHICH DOES LIMIT PEOPLE FROM BEING ABLE TO GET INVOLVED .

      EQUINOX MIGHT BE A HOUSING THAT IS HARD TO FIND . IT WOULD BE A MORE ADVANCE HOUSING THAT CAN WEIGH A FEW POUNDS . THE CONSTRUCTION IS STRONG AND IS VERY DURABLE . THE FUNCTION OF THE HOUSING CAN TAKE SOME TIME . WITH A LITTLE EXPERIENCE AND MOTIVATION THE CAMERA HOUSING CAN BE BUT TO GOOD USE .
