Overview
  • 1Description

This Pocket Buddy Underwater Housing from Amphibico is a compact waterproof case enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera. It has a depth rating of 300', and features an audible moisture alarm/pressure sensor to alert you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal. Mechanical controls afford easy access to all camera functions, and dual ergonomic, Stable-Wide hand grips afford optimal handling and comfort, while also providing mounting points for optional lighting arms. For convenience, vital functions can be accessed while keeping your hands on the grips.

The housing is precision machined from a solid block of aluminum, which has been anodized and treated with a layer of polyurethane powder-coat paint for superior corrosion resistance. The Pocket Buddy ships without a required lens port, though various interchangeable bayonet-mount ports are available for an array of Micro Four Thirds wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses. See Port Chart. Additionally, dual standard 1/4"-20 threaded mounts, one of which is located on the bottom to allow for tripod connection, enable the attachment of optional accessories, and you can even connect an optional pistol grip to the bottom of the housing for one-handed video recording while keeping your other hand free.

Waterproofing
Features a depth rating of 300'. An audible moisture alarm/pressure sensor alerts you in the unlikely event of a breach in the waterproof seal, helping to prevent damage to your camera and lens.
Controls and Handling
Mechanical controls consisting of push-buttons, levers and a knob on housing afford easy access to all camera functions, including all push-buttons. Dual ergonomic, Stable-Wide hand grips are attached and afford optimal handling and comfort. For convenience, vital functions like record, focus and lens controls, including the oversized iris/aperture button, are placed at a comfortable distance so as to be accessible while keeping your hands on the grips, which are angled at 15° forward. An easy-to-reach lens control knob enables zoom or focus operation, depending on which lens is used. With full electronic control of the lens from the housed camera, you can simply point and set your iris and focus on the fly.
Construction Details
Compact design for ideal buoyancy and handling underwater. Precision machined from a solid block of marine-grade aluminum, which has been black anodized for corrosion resistance and then covered in a layer of polyurethane powder-coat paint for even greater durability.
Lens Port
The Pocket Buddy ships without a required lens port, though various interchangeable bayonet-mount ports are available for an array of Micro Four Thirds wide-angle, macro and zoom lenses, including those from Olympus, Panasonic and Sigma. See the port chart linked above. Use Aquatica's line of Micro Four Thirds ports, which include 4" glass, 6" acrylic and macro models, in addition to various extension rings.
Mounting
Grip handles feature 1/4-20" threaded holes on top for mounting optional arms that will enable video light connection. Additionally, two more standard 1/4"-20 threaded mounts, one of which is located on the bottom for a tripod, enable the attachment of optional accessories, and you can even connect an optional pistol grip to the bottom of the housing for one-handed video recording while keeping your other hand free.
Additional Recommended Accessories
You can purchase an optional battery pack that easily mounts on top of the camera inside the housing and extends your shooting time by up to 2.5 hr on a single charge.
