Overview
  • 1Description

This HD8X Underwater Housing from Equinox is a waterproof case for the JVC GY-HM150U camcorder. It has a depth rating of 250'. The housing provides access to all essential camera functions via the following manual, mechanical controls: power on/off, record start/stop, zoom-wide/telephoto, photo, white balance, iris, auto focus, manual focus, and ND filter. It features a dome-shaped lens port, which accommodates the included wide-angle accessory lens that corrects for the limited angle of view underwater. This lens has a thread diameter of 62mm and gets mounted directly onto the camcorder's lens. The HD8X is constructed from durable, thermal-based polyvinyl carbonate and has near-neutral buoyancy at approximately 33'.

The Ballast Release System enables easy travel and fast transport to the surface. Simply pull on the quick release pin on one of the wings and the wing and ballast/handle are both released; the housing now becomes positive in buoyancy and shoots to the surface.

The HD8X includes a rear-mounted LCD monitor, as well as an external color correction filter to help restore hues that get absorbed and lost underwater. Additionally, the supplied E/O Bulkhead enables a video feed to the surface.
