It will be available from the end of July at a European price of around €6,500.
Sealux housing for Sony FS7 housing
The new SEALUX HDFS7 housing for the SONY PXW-FS7 camcorder supports the Sony display, which comes with the camcorder. If the customer uses an external recorder/display, the display-housing can be replaced through a simple plate so that the housing becomes smaller.
In the base version, the housing comes with 1 HDMI port. As an option 2 HD-SDI ports can be mounted.
The camcorder can be controlled fully manually and in addition the underwater filmmaker can make use of the right keypad. To make use of big lenses, the housing has a lens release lever so that the lens can be mounted from the front side without opening the housing.
There is also enough space for lens adapters like the Metabones Speed Booster. The housing will support the hole range of SEALUX ports.
It will be available from the end of July 2015 with an estimated base price or around 6500,- €
