More Info

The HD8 Underwater Housing for JVC GY-HM150U Camcorder from Equinox is a waterproof case for the JVC GY-HM150U Compact Handheld 3-CCD Camcorder. It has a depth rating of 250' (76.2 m), and buoyancy is neutral.

The housing provides access to all essential camcorder functions, including Power on/off, Record start/stop, Zoom-Wide/Telephoto, Photo, White Balance, Auto Focus and ND Filter, via mechanical controls. It's constructed from a durable, thermal-based polyvinyl carbonate, and is equipped with a dome lens port. An included external color correction filter for blue water helps to restore some of the colors that are lost underwater.

The BRS / Ballast Release System makes for easy travel and quick transport to the water's surface if trouble occurs on a dive: Simply pull the quick release pin on one of the wings and the wing and handle (ballast) release, causing the housing to become positive in buoyancy and shoot to the water's surface.

You can add the optional EO bulkhead, which provides a video feed to the surface via an 18" (45.7 cm) cable with a male inline connector, to allow for topside viewing. The optional tripod mount #TPM is available, and has a 1/4"-20 thread.
