Gates add underwater monitor to DSLR
Gates Underwater Products has announced that they can mount their EM43 external monitor to DSLR housings. The company has successfully attached the monitor to an Aquatica Canon 5DMkII housing and can now do so with other housing brands or models. Gates will require the housing and camera for one week and thereafter can advise feasibility, lead time and cost. This modification will further blur the boundary between video and still cameras, and will allow underwater filmmakers to view the video being captured at a reasonable size.
People planning to do so should be aware that it may void their manufacturers warranty, although Gates are at pains to stress that they will stand by the quality of their work.
