For sale: GATES hvx200 housing + Fathom SWP, in excellent condition

Recommended Posts

GATES Underwater Video Camera Housing for Panasonic HVX-200a (works equally well with hvx200). Asking $2900 for housing.


In excellent used condition. This is a killer underwater filming setup. Buy my Fathom super-wide port too, if you have the cash- that seals the deal. This housing is rugged, field adjustable, all mechanical controls (nothing electronic to fiz out and ruin your day). It also swims with utter sweetness- you can trim it to perfection and it will hold steady with a single finger on it. Single owner, purchased new and treated with great care- everything works as it did when it was new. Buy this for less than half what I paid and get yourself a great deal.


Original accessories included- handles, base plate, trim weights, manual.

Comes with flat port (GATES, glass)- the port glass has a few faint marks from being in the marine environment but nothing that affects the image while shooting.

Also included- large rolling pelicase for transport, with custom foam.

Plus, spare o-ring kits for maintenance.


SWP - Super wide port. In pristine condition. $2350. Includes customized pelicase.


Amazing piece of glass- this is the one piece of camera gear I have owned that makes the image look even better than it does in real life. Underwater it helps you take incredible images- it was the best investment I made in my filmmaking career. Everyone on any boat I ever dove from had severe camera envy.


Port is in excellent used condition. The glass is pristine. Port comes with a large pelicase for transport, and buoyancy tubes so you can trim the housing to perfection. This port also works with the Sony EX1 Gates housing.

Dropping the price to $2500 for the housing, $2100 for the SWP. I have the gear listed on ebay as well (pika8). I haven't posted on wetpixel before, but I have 100% positive rating for the other items I've sold. I'm a professional filmmaker, and turn around a fair amount of gear. Let me know if you're interested in the Gates! It's a sweet setup.
