SEALUX HX1000

Housing for Panasonic HC-X1000

The SEALUX HX1000 housing is a safe, custom-made housing for the professional HC-X1000 4K camcorder made by Panasonic. It is one of the smallest and lightest aluminium underwater housings for the HC-X1000 on the market. With this housing our main focus has been on an entirely manual control system. A new, high-definition 5-inch display at the back provides a brilliant image at any time. As a whole, the dimensions of the housing were optimized so that it fits inside a piece of standard hand luggage with the grips detached. The interchangeable wide-angle converter lenses stand out for a maximum degree of flexibility and the highest optical quality possible. All function elements are sealed twofold and up to fourfold. The provision of the highest degree of safety is our command.
