  1. After almost three years, we were back to Raja Ampat, Indonesia, diving the Dampier Strait, which never disappoints.Underwater Video Equipment used in this video: Camera: Sony camcorder PXW Z90 Housing: Gates AX700 / Z90 with Gates GP34A Wide Angle Port and internal UR Pro Red Filter Video Lights: Keldan Video 8X 11000 Lumen, CRI 92 (5400K) Keldan Ambient Filter M1 (10-20m) for 4X/8X Camera Settings: 4K, 30 FPS Picture Profile: PP10 (HLG) Gamma: HLG2 Color Mode: BT2020 Drone: DJI Mavic 3 (HLG Picture Profile)
  2. Please watch my latest video “Scuba Diving in the Red Sea, Egypt, Sinai”, which will bring you to the best dive sites and shipwrecks of the Red Sea, and show what you can expect to see underwater during a 7-day long “Sinai Wrecks & Reefs” diving safari. This trip took place in August 2022, and it was organized and led by Massimo Franzese (aka Interceptor121) for underwater photographers and videographers, hence the name “2022 Image Makers Liveaboard”. We have to complement Massimo for the success of this trip. He used to work in this region as a dive instructor, which, combined with his underwater photography and videography skills, helped him to choose the best time for each dive. One of the great benefits of this trip was that every evening Massimo would review our photos and footage, and give us advice on how to improve. Our boat, the Snefro Pearl, with its fantastic crew always eager to help, made our trip very comfortable and enjoyable. With respect to marine life, we were pleasantly surprised how healthy the corrals were, with absolutely no signs of coral bleaching. The water was warm, crystal clear and unbelievably blue. The most unforgettable part of this trip was snorkeling and diving with a family of wild dolphins. I counted 21 of them. Diving the Thistlegorm shipwreck was very interesting as well. Overall, this Image Makers Liveaboard trip exceeded my expectations. I hope that Massimo will keep organizing Underwater Image Makers Trips in the future so I can join him for more fun diving and continue improving my videography skills.

  4. First time of playing with my Sony AX100 in a Gates housing. We were there im mid February during full moon with some VERY strong currents and surge and often less than perfect visibility. At some dive spots like Cap Kri all you could do is just get down quickly, get yourself on a reef-hook and watch the world pass bye... It's still been great fun. Attached some impressions. The setup was fun to use bubffm
  5. Gates Housing for the Sony VX2000 I put about 25 hours on it, filming shipwrecks mostly in the great lakes. It has been stored for the last 7 years in a sealed plastic bin with the housing open and the primary o-rings removed. This is a great housing that has never leaked a drop and easy to operate. Included: - Gates Manuals for the housing and monitor - Screw on diopter lens for the Sony camera - Handles and brackets with ball adapters ready for light attachment - Standard Dome Port - Flat / macro Port I'm keeping the VX2000 so I can playback my tapes. There are several for sale on the internet though. $695.00 US OBO.
  6. GATES UNDERWATER HOUSING W/SONY HVR-V1P + EXTRAS SELLING VERY CHEAP!! Everything is in Excellent condition as I service and clean all equipment regularly and comes with loads of extras. This kit is ready to go for shooting both underwater and topside. This is the perfect set up for industry professionals or any underwater videographer looking to produce high quailty HD films at an affordable price. SONY HVR-V1P: The Sony HVR-V1P offers 25p progressive scanning, in addition to 50i interlaced. In its compact, lightweight, and ergonomically designed chassis, the HVR-V1P camcorder integrates advanced technologies such as the newly developed 3 ClearVid CMOS Sensor imaging system – which is only made possible by Sony’s industry-leading semiconductor technology – and a stunning optical 20x Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T*® zoom lens. Such features ensure operators can make the most of the HDV format quality with an extreme level of mobility, ease of use, and operational comfort suited for any shooting scenario. In addition to HDV 1080i recording and playback, the camcorder also offers DVCAMTM/DV recording and playback capabilities, as well as down-conversion of recordings made in HDV 1080i. These bridges between HD and SD allow the camcorder to be used in any DV-based system, whether it uses the HDV, DVCAM, or DV format. And for even greater power, the optional HVR-MRC1K CF Memory Recording Unit (INCLUDED) – which is optimized for use on the HVR-V1P camcorder – streamlines the subsequent editing and archiving processes. Adding this unit allows images captured by the camcorder to be simultaneously recorded to tape and CF. After a shoot is complete, simply remove the CF card and connect to a compatible nonlinear editing system provides quick access to files from the editing software and completely eliminates the time-consuming digitizing process. This hybrid tape and CF Card recording system offers a multitude of benefits for shooting, editing, and archiving operations. This has been customized to fit inside the underwater housing.

  10. Hi I need to find an EX1 with Gates Housing, in good condition. I know many are upgrading to 4K so I am sure some of you have them sitting around just collecting dust, which is heart breaking. Prepared to pay international shipping rates. All offers will be considered. There is the possibility of buying 2 as well. Cheers Jules
  11. I am selling my carefully maintained backup video system, all in perfect working order, including: · Gates housing for Sony HC7/9 with the Fathom W25 wide angle port (with instruction manual and spare parts/O ring kit.) This housing has extremely reliable mechanical controls for most camera functions (including white balance), a large viewing window for the camera LCD display, and an internal red filter that can be moved in/out. · Sony HDR-HC-7 video camera (In original box, with instruction manual, all original connection cables, Sony FH60 battery and an extra, higher capacity Sony FH70 battery, standard charger, extra Sony BC—TRP compact travel battery charger, Sony Wide angle conversion lens (0.7) for use topside, 3 blank Sony videotapes). · Pair of Gates/Greenforce Squid 50 HID video lights (With a total of 4 Flexi I NiMH batteries, each of which powers one light for 90+ minutes [spec, sheet says 120 minutes], 2 battery chargers with several optional international plugs, flexible arms that attach to the Gates housing). The extra set of batteries allows easy change between dives. · Pelican M2500 Storm Case (Airline carry-on size. With cutouts for the housing, Fathom lens, and light heads. Room for more items with additional cutouts.) This system has produced stunning video for me. I will especially miss the superb Fathom lens. The housing was inspected/overhauled at Gates last year and is under Extended Warranty until June 2013. The video camera was recently cleaned/maintained by Sony. The housing, port, and lights show cosmetic wear marks and some tarnishing of their anodized aluminum finishes as occurs with saltwater exposure, but everything works perfectly, and the interior and all mechanisms are pristine. $1950 for the whole system (cost over $8000). Pay Pal payment please. Can inspect in the Los Angeles area and in the photos below.
