The VFS7 Underwater Housing for Sony NEX-FS700 35mm Camcorder from Ewa-Marine is a waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the water's surface with your Sony NEX-FS700 Super 35mm Camcorder. It has a depth rating of 32.8' (10 m). The housing's integrated, optically neutral flat glass lens port will accommodate the camcorder's cine-style film lenses.
The VFS7 provides access to all the camcorder's functions, which are operable through the housing. It is constructed from clear double laminated PVC. The housing comes with an Ewa-Marine CA67mm filter thread adapter for connecting a lens with a 67mm filter thread to the inside of the port. Other adapters with filter threads of 49, 52, 55, 58, 62 and 72mm are available separately.
Two clamping rails anodized for corrosion resistance fit together to form a watertight seal; you can tighten them via knurled thumb screw knobs. Straps at the bottom of the housing enable you to attach optional weights for negative buoyancy underwater. The included water-resistant yellow carry-case is not meant for submersion, but will protect your gear against splashes.

- Included Items
- A packet of drying agent CD5 helps prevent the buildup of moisture in the housing, which could of course be harmful to your camcorder. Also supplied is enough foam padding to fill up any extra space inside the housing. This is used to prevent your camcorder from bouncing around. The foam would only be necessary when shooting above the water's surface, because underwater, the water pressure will compress the housing, getting rid of any excess space and providing a snug, secure fit. The water-resistant yellow carry-case, while not meant for submersion, will safeguard your gear against splashes
