Recsea Announces Housing for Sony AX700 and AX100 Camcorders
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 4, 2019 @ 04:00 AM (EST)

Recsea has unveiled its new housing compatible with the Sony AX700 and AX100 4K camcorders. Both models record 4K/30p at 100Mbps, but the former supports recording in the Hybrid-Log Gamma (HLG) format for playback on high dynamic range screens.

Depth-rated to 330 feet (100m), the housing offers full menu access via an IR control grip, features an LCD window with an adjustable mirror, and boasts an integrated leak alarm. The main body and grip are made from machined aluminum alloy.

Two versions of the housing are available: a standard version and a “PRO” version, which is distinguished by the addition of Recsea’s 4.3-inch monitor and the inclusion of a vacuum system (optional on the standard housing).

The housing is available for special order only and is priced at $3,400 for the standard (SD) version and $4,800 for the PRO version.
