External Monitor Ikelite Housing (Sony a7siii) - How?

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I am in need of some advice in terms of monitors.

I have a Sony a7siii with Ikelite housing and am very happy with it so far.

I am working on a project where the producer requested a director's monitor on the surface. We'd be shooting in depths no more than 3-5m. There are scenes in a pool and scenes in open water i.e. a lido very close to the shore (a character "falls" into the water).

Is there a way to connect the camera to an external monitor on the surface by any chance? I know that there's the function of connecting it to a phone but of course Wifi doesn't travel underwater, and there's also the distance problem.

Do I have to purchase a Nauticam housing specifically for this purpose?

Would really appreciate any advice!

You could try something like this:

https://www.diveandsee.com/products/underwater-cables/DNC-1120-Underwater-Full-HDMI-2.0-cable-4K-60fps-for-Live-video

You would then just need a HDMI bulkhead installed on the housing.  They could probably supply one but may need to be a custom item as Ikelite don't use metric threads on their bulkheads as far as I know.

You can use bulkhead connector DNC-2091 for your Ikelite housing with any external HDMI cables, depends from desirable length, for example 30m DNC-1066

Does the ikelite housings now use M14/16 threads for their bulkheads - I thought the older housings used imperial thread for that purpose?

At least latest housing for Sony a7siii has threaded M16x1 port.

Previous housings had 1/2-20 threaded spare ports.
