Universal Adapted Solution

(PresseBox) (Achern, )
Baden based BS Kinetics developed the new universal underwater casing "Gobi" as a new underwater casing. With camcorders continuously shrinking in size, the rapid model changes and the stringent air traffic rules are cause for new approaches for underwater casings. These approaches relating to size, weight, universal use, special adaptations to the cameras and customer requests are implemented with this underwater casing.

The carbon casing has a net weight of 2.6 kg and a size of 14x15x31 cm. It will hold cameras up to 17 cm long. The composite material of carbon fibre and epoxy resin, wellknown from formula one racing and light aircrafts, is as hard as steel while offering the benefits of a synthetic material. It is rotproof, longlasting and not affected by salt water or UV rays.

The camcorder is controlled via a cable or infrared remote control inside the casing. It is offered for camcorders by Sony, Panasonic, Canon and JVC. This flexibility allows all camcorders to be operated. After switching cameras updating/exchanging the control will set it up for the new camcorder, if necessary.
Recordings can be viewed with a 3.6" TFT colour monitor. It is powered via rechargeable battery and features a run time of 8 hours. LEDs indicate the battery charge level, reminding the user to recharge in due time. A 3.5" OLED is optionally available. This monitor captivates with a greater viewing angle and nonreflective images in the sun.

Mounting the camcorder inside the underwater casing is quite simple. On a tabletop it is simply secured with a tripod screw and positioned in the centre of the port pane. As typical for universal casings, wide angle or macro adapters are screwed to the camcorder lens inside the casing. Changing adapters under water is thus not possible. To compensate for this drawback of the universal casing the company BS Kinetics optionally offers an expansion set for this casing. This allows an M67mm tapping holder to be attached in front of the casing. The camera position inside the casing is established by an anchor. This trick allows a universal casing to be turned into a camera specific casing and exchange accessory lenses under water. The casing can be changed back to universal style at any time.

The casing is priced at 1350 Euro incl. red filter. The casing is sold by BS Kinetics or the respective retailers. Casings are available for rent and can be ordered from BS Kinetics. Accessories such as light, lighting arms, cases and much more are of course also available from BS Kinetics.
