In a unique partnership with respected video housing manufacturer Submerge Camera releases its own "Turtle" underwater video housing.
"Basically we took an already great idea and just expanded on it by adding a second handle for balance, softening up the push button electronic controls for divers that are primarily using the unit above 110ft (33m) and adding a new professional color scheme all for under $1200.00/USD. It is really quite amazing if you look at the units sitting below or at that price point now and how it really is the absolute best value in the industry for shooting HD video underwater," states TJ Mansfield owner of Submerge Camera and long time industry professional.
For $1199.95/USD Diver's receive:
* Light weight (under 10lbs) aluminum housing
* Digital LCD monitor back
* Electronic soft-touch controls that feature one button white balance
* A Housing that accepts over 15 existing Sony HD Models with Canon and more to come
* 330ft (100m) depth rating
* Upgradeable -- as newer cameras are released
* Expandable ? ability to change the front plate and then add wide angle ports
* USA Sales and Service Center
* FREE USA Shipping
* Submerge Camera Video Team T-shirt
TJ Mansfield explains, "It's really quite amazing the flexibility of this housing, currently it houses about 15 existing Sony HD Camera models with this year's new Sony and Canon select models available for shipping in late May early June. The life of the housing is virtually unlimited; if you purchase this housing today for the Sony CX550 and in 2 years your camera dies you simply just purchase a new compatible camera tray for the latest camera model and you are good to go. You don't have to ship your housing back to the manufacturer; you simply just order a new tray. There is no reason you can't do that every couple of years to stay up on the latest technology while stretching this minimal investment in a quality housing. At Submerge Camera we are very excited about this partnership and see the Turtle available for a long time with hopes of accommodating JVC and Panasonic in the future as well."
