Hugyfot Announces Vision Xs Housing for GoPro HERO8
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, May 19, 2020 @ 09:00 PM (EST)

Hugyfot has announced a new version of its Vision Xs especially for the GoPro HERO8. The new housing shares various features with the Vision Xs housing for the HERO5–7: These “lite” versions of the company’s Vision Hero feature 5-inch HDMI monitors—rather than 7-inch—but have the same machined aluminum construction, integrated aluminum handles with standard one-inch ball mounts, and dual O-ring seals.

The monitor is a Feelworld F5, which has a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels and brightness of 450cd/m², and features on-board tools including histogram, focus assist, false colors, zebra exposure, and zoom. Depth-rated to 150 meters (almost 500 feet), the housing accommodates dual lithium-ion battery packs (one for the monitor, one for the camera), providing around three hours of shooting time. The housing comes with an integrated vacuum leak detection system and built-in red flip filter. An optional magenta filter for green water is available, as is an M67 +10 macro lens.

Contact your dealer for availability and pricing.
 



PRESS RELEASE

Hugyfot Vision Xs for Hero 8

We are very exited to introduce the Hugyfot Vision Xs housing for the most powerful, feature-filled GoPro camera ever; the Hero 8.

When traveling to remote areas to capture exceptional images, leave nothing to chance what concerns your equipment. Using reliable gear is particularly important when shooting underwater photos and videos. Hugyfot products are renowned for their ergonomic, functional and innovative designs. The durable housings are CNC machined out of solid blocks of marine grade aluminum, hard anodized and coated with a durable Surlon®KE non-stick layer for extra protection. The camera tray inside the housing is 3D printed using the latest resin printing technologies. All parts are hand fitted and assembled. Each housing is carefully inspected and pressure tested to ensure reliable and flawless operation before leaving production.

This housing is small, light and easy to handle, the ideal travel companion to record your diving adventures. Depth rating is 150m.

The HDMI monitor used in the Hugyfot Vison Xs housing has a bright IPS display of 1920x1080pixels that offers stunning colors in a 160° viewing angle (in all directions). The incorporated Feelworld F5 monitor offers professional features like Peaking Focus Assist, Histogram, Zebra exposure, Zoom, … amongst many others. Two supplied batteries; one monitor battery and one USB battery pack to power the GoPro camera offer approximately 3 hours of battery life to the housing. 

The Hugyfot Vision Xs for Hero 8 comes standard with the HugyCheck Xs pre-dive vacuum check system for maximum protection of your equipment. Also the Red Filter and Protection kit is standard included for your convenience. 

The GoPro Hero 8 camera needs the GoPro Media Mod accessory to obtain HDMI output. This accessory is therefore necessary to operate the monitor and can be purchased together with the housing.
