The VPX Underwater Housing from Ewa-Marine is a waterproof enclosure enabling you to shoot beneath the surface with your Panasonic AG-HPX170, HPX171, HPX250, AC130, or AC160 Camcorder. It has a depth rating of 32.8'. Easy access to the viewfinder and virtually all camcorder controls is provided right through the double-laminated PVC body.

The housing features an integrated, optically neutral, flat glass lens port. The supplied CA ring with 77mm filter thread adapter mounts onto camera lenses with 77mm thread diameters, fixing the front element of the lens to the interior of the port to hold the lens securely in place. The included 72-77mm step-up ring lets you adapt lenses of a smaller 72mm diameter, as well. You can also stack optional step rings on top of this one to enable the use of even more lenses. Corrosion-resistant clamping rails fit together for a waterproof seal and are tightened via knurled thumb screw knobs. Additionally, the straps at the bottom of the housing allow weights to be attached for ideal buoyancy beneath the surface.

The VPX is supplied in a handy yellow carrying case with a waterproof interior and a zippered side pocket. Also provided is an initial supply of CD5 drying agent to absorb moisture/condensation, as well as enough foam padding to take up any empty space when shooting above water. Below the surface, the water pressure will compress the housing, eliminating excess space.
