Equinox HD8 overview

  • 1Description

This HD8 Underwater Housing from Equinox is a waterproof case for the Sony NEX-VG20 camcorder and E-Mount 16mm f/2.8 lens. It has a depth rating of 250'. The housing provides access to all essential camcorder functions via the following manual, mechanical controls: power on/off, record start/stop, wide-telephoto zoom, photo, white balance, auto focus and ND filter. It also features a dome port to accommodate the NEX-VG20's lens, and includes a wide-angle accessory lens to help correct for the minimized field of view underwater. An included external color correction filter for blue water helps to restore some of the colors that are lost underwater.

Built for durability, the HD8 is constructed from thermal-based polyvinyl carbonate. Its Ballast Release System makes for easy travel and quick transport to the water's 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. When the BRS is not engaged, the housing has close to neutral buoyancy.

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 also available and has a standard 1/4"-20 thread.
