This HD8X Underwater Housing from Equinox is a waterproof case for the Sony NEX-VG900 camcorder. It has a depth rating of 250'. The housing provides access to all essential camera functions via the following manual, mechanical controls: power on/off, record start/stop, zoom-wide/telephoto, photo, white balance, iris, auto focus, manual focus and ND filter. Additionally, it features a dome port to accommodate the camcorder's lens, and includes a wide-angle accessory lens to help correct for the minimized field of view underwater. For easy handling and operation, its buoyancy is nearly neutral.

Built for durability, the HD8X is constructed from thermal-based polyvinyl carbonate. The Ballast Release System enables easy travel and fast transport to the surface. Simply pull on the quick release pin on one of the wings and the wing and ballast/handle are both released; the housing now becomes positive in buoyancy and shoots to the surface.

The HD8X includes a 2.5", rear-mounted LCD monitor, as well as an external color correction filter to help restore hues that get absorbed and lost underwater. The supplied E/O Bulkhead enables a video feed to the surface.
