This is the housing that filmed the
2000 Olympic Games torch underwater for the first time in history.
- Support for Canon XL1 and Canon XL1/S
- High-resolution LCD monitor (480 W x 234 H 2.5 inch screen) plus battery pack and charger for the monitor. The LCD monitor allows for extremely easy viewing while filming.
We remove the
video camera viewfinder from the video camera itself. This is to conserve precious internal volume, thereby reducing the additional ballast that would be necessary to keep the housing neutrally
- Dome port for improved angle of view underwater.
We use the standard Canon XL1 lens, though variations of wide-angle lenses can be made available. (Prices on application). The dome
port acts as a wide-angle converter. It compensates for the greater refractive index under water, which makes objects under water appear 25% closer than they do on land.
- Construction is from transparent and robust acrylic, which allows you to view the workings of your camera, control arm seals and main o-ring seal.
- Stainless steel latches and control arms are used so as to avoid rust or corrosion. This will save much heartache and replacing of parts.
- Each control arm has 2 o-rings to ensure an excellent seal
- The camera is mounted onto a brass slide tray, stabilized by a clip-in latch for rock-solid stability. The control arms therefore are in always the right place, every time.
- A full range of manual controls including
record / standby
power on / off
auto / manual menu select
auto / manual focus
and of course LCD on / off control
- Dual ergonomic, super-soft handles (not removable) for increased comfort.

- 1-year warranty with excellent back up service.
