ewa-marine VFS5

Underwater housing for Sony PXW-FS5 XDCAM, 4K camcorders

order code: VFS5

The VFS5 is the 10 meter / 30 ft dive depth housing for the compact Sony PXW-FS5 4K Super 35mm XDCAM Camcorder.

Designed specifically for the PXW-FS5 camcorder the VFS5 UW-housing is manufactured from our special, extra strong, laminated PVC that was especially developed by us for our flexible housings. It has an integrated, optically neutral flat glass port, made in Germany. The unit includes a wide insert to allow the operator to hold the camera via its top handle as well as a total of seven "fingers" that allow the cameraman easy access to operate power, iris, white balance, lens and other menus on the camera.

Just fix the ewa-marine CA adapter to the lens via the filter thread, move the monitor to the rear of the camera and insert it into the pouch. Then close the pouch with the ewa-marine closing rail (making sure there is enough air inside the housing: very little air for use around the water surface or maximum amount of air possible if you want to scuba dive), tighten the housing around the camera with the two webbing belts and clips over the rail to ensure the view finder window is above the monitor and the housing is as compact as possible. And you are ready to go.

Having the monitor at the rear of the camera is ideal for use around the waters surface as you can submerge the lens while still having a good view into the monitor above the water. You should also find this to be an ideal position for scuba use as well. After all, there is a large, extra clear monitor window integrated into the housing to allow you to move the view finder into the ideal position for the desired application.

Perfect for snorkeling or shallow diving, sandy, dusty, humid or foul weather conditions this housing will give your camera the best possible protection whilst being fully operable.

The straps at the bottom allow weights to be attached for perfect buoyancy under water.

Like all ewa-marine products, the VFS5 was also was also designed and manufactured in our factory in Wolfratshausen. We only supply high end quality "made in Germany" on which you can rely.

With this housing you will receive a set of adapters that fit the filter threads of the most popular lenses on the market today. By means of this adapter the camera is then docked into the housings front port, ensuring that the lens remains parallel and centered behind the front of the lens.
