NEW GATES Housings
Gates Canon EOS C300 (now taking orders)
Canon EOS C300 Cinema in a a Gates underwater housing. WOW!
Of course the camera body is only $15000.00 then you add the Tokina 10-17 lens for another $700.00 and then the Gate new underwater housing with monitor and you are broke. But the is the best video you can get and put in a decent underwater housing that is still relative small and neutral underwater, so the story goes on. Order one from Marinecamera.com today.
The Canon EOS C300 Cinema EOS Camcorder Body (EF Lens Mount) takes what professionals love about DSLR filmmaking – access to a vast selection of widely available lenses, a large sensor that facilitates a shallow depth of field, and portable operation with a modular, compact camera – and addresses its shortcomings. That means that unlike DSLR cameras, this Cinema EOS camcorder is designed inside and out for professional cinematographers capturing motion pictures that will stand up to rigorous post-production processes.

Due to small camera differences, these 2 models require a different housing and are not interchangeable. (LCD size is the main difference).
Gates has completed the design phase and have released small parts into the factory. Production will begin next week.
The anticipated ship date is 8-10 weeks from June15th.
The great thing about the Sony CX760 and the PJ760 is the Exmor back lit CMOS sensor is that it functions at lower light levels than other CMOS sensors which is greatly needed in underwater conditions. They also have lower sensor noise and artifacts. Up until now HD video cameras have had problems with low light requiring extensive additional light sources.
