The HD8 Underwater Housing for Sony NEX-VG20 Camcorder
from Equinox is a waterproof housing for your Sony NEX-VG20 Interchangeable Lens HD Camcorder. It enables you to safely shoot underwater to a maximum depth of 250' (76.2 m). Mechanical controls provide access to all essential camcorder functions, including Power on/off, Record start/stop, Zoom-Wide/Telephoto, Photo, White Balance, Auto Focus and ND Filter.
The housing is constructed from a durable, thermal-based polyvinyl carbonate, and is equipped with a dome lens port. It has near-neutral buoyancy at approximately 33' (10 m). An included external color correction filter helps to restore some of the colors that are lost underwater, to give you a rich, full color palette for your videography.
The BRS / Ballast Release System serves a dual purpose: Easy travel and fast transport to the surface, should you run into trouble during your underwater video adventure. Simply pull on the quick release pin on one of the wings and the wing and ballast/handle both release; the housing now becomes positive in buoyancy and shoots to the surface.
