EPOQUE WORLD CO. #1505
October 24, 2008 - 12:30 PM
Epoque World Co. had a selection of interesting housings and accessories on display, including the ERX-C1010 for the Canon Rebel XS/EOS 1000 10.1MP digital SLR. The housing allows for the internal flash to be deployed and used for TTL control over fiber-optic cable (compatible with Epoque’s EUS-C430 flash housing for the Canon 430/430 II). Rated to 150 feet, the housing is also fitted with an S6 bulkhead for eTTL2 compatibility, and can be paired with three different flat ports or either of the Athena 170mm or 200mm dome ports. Epoque expects the housing to be widely available by the end of November.
In what may be the first of its kind, Epoque unveiled the UHR-LM8 housing for the Leica M8 digital camera, with access to all camera controls, and featuring a flash mounting bracket and single Nikonos bulkhead. The housing’s lens port is threaded to allow for a macro wet lens attachment - there are no current plans to expand to a wide-angle accessory. Also on display was the EHD-800Ai, an Epoque-branded 8MP point-and-shoot camera that takes approximately 400 photos on 2AA batteries, and with a mount for a fiber-optic sync-cord for compatibility with the Epoque ES-150 DS Alfa slave strobe.
