The Amphibico Dive Buddy EVO HD Elite II electronic underwater housing is for the Sony HDR-CX12 camcorder. Built from marine grade aluminum with marine grade brass and stainless steel hardware, this housing allows you to document your adventures down to 330' (100m).
Electronic push-button controls on the hand grips allows you to have complete control over the camcorder, and the internal flip UR Pro blue water filter will help you achieve perfect color underwater. The monitor back has a large 10° angled 3.5" color LCD display that makes framing, focus and other settings easy to see. The lens port is not included, but choose between the flat port bayonet assembly, or if you seek wide views, the 0.55x bayonet wide-angle lens.
The housing features 2 auxiliary ports so you can run an external monitor on the surface, and if water gets past the o-ring seal, the moisture alarm will warn you before damage is done to your camcorder. All of these professional features will allow you to create videos of all your underwater adventures.
