Housing for Sony NEX FS700
The SEALUX HFS700 housing is a safe, tailor-made housing for the professional high-definition NEX camcorder made by Sony. It fits the camcorder like a glove and even so, allows the use of the adjustable viewfinder, plus there is enough space for a NANOflash Recorder and the large SWIT rechargeable battery for its power supply.
Both the LA-EA2 adapter for SONY Alpha lenses and the METABONES adapter for Canon lenses can be used. The mix of electronic and mechanical controls ensures perfect operability in every situation. In the event of an electronics
failure you can carry on filming using the mechanical controls. In this case, most functions would continue to be available.
Made of seawater-resistant aluminium, CNC milled out of a monoblock, hard-anodized and passivated in a special process.
There are four quick-release locking devices protected with safety-catches.
The back plate is sealed with precision o-rings.
To accommodate the large number of lenses available, the large tried and tested bayonet mount fitted in Sealux DSLR photo housings is used. This, in combination with the existing dome ports, flat ports and adapter rings, presents a solution for almost all lenses.
The grips are ergonomically adjustable and detachable for transport in the carry case.
The solid carrying handle is detachable to minimize packing size.
For comfortable viewing, the viewfinder eyepiece is fitted at a 20º tilt relative to the swimming plane. Using the Sony viewfinder magnifier you can totally enjoy your images in shallow waters, too, in a comfortable swimming position. An unscrewable sunshade completes the comfort features.
External HDMI monitor (optional)
As an alternative, you can connect our Sealux WM-5 HDMI monitor.
The camcorder is mounted on the tripod base and secured at the front, thereby allowing easy replacement of the rechargeable battery and memory cartridge.

Manual functions right
Manual/Auto Focus Switch

All control elements are sealed twofold and up to fourfold. Maximum reliability is our priority.
