Is anyone using the Subal VS 1 video housing and, if so, with which videocamera? What do you think of it and does it have an inbuilt red filter.

Its uses a remote IR control. Any Sony camcorder small enough to fit inside or Canon for that matter. These camcorder must have the ability for IR remote. The housing could learn that camcorder IR protocol and then programs the handle buttons for various functions. The saddle is a scissor stage so the optical axis of the camcorder could be lined up to the port hole. Uses existing Subal ports and may be one or too wide angle ports too. I only played with the prototype. Pretty interesting concept.
