Hugyfot Announces Vision Xs Housing for GoPro HERO
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, May 12, 2019 @ 10:30 PM (EST)

Hugyfot has announced the latest housing in its Vision series of housings featuring integrated monitors: the Vision Xs for GoPro HERO5, HERO6 and HERO7. A “lite” version of the company’s Vision Hero, the new housing features a 5-inch HDMI monitor—rather than 7-inch—but has similar characteristics to its bigger brother: machined aluminum construction, integrated aluminum handles with standard one-inch ball mounts, and dual O-ring seals.

The housing ships with a built-in red flip filter for improved color at depth, and there’s the option of attaching other flip accessories, such as a filter or macro lens. Depth-rated to 150 meters (almost 500 feet), the housing accommodates two lithium-ion battery packs, giving you around three hours of shooting time, and features an integrated vacuum leak detection system.

The Vision Xs housing ships with monitor, batteries and charger, and is priced at €1,100 (approx. $1,235). Contact your dealer for availability.


Vision Xs

The Vision Xs has been designed to maximise the potential of your GoPro 5/6 and 7, the latest in the Hugyfot Vision series approved by professional television filmmakers and battle-tested by multiple European military units. The housing is crafted from aluminium and made resistant to seawater through heavy anodisation and Surlon Coating. This offers the housing a depth rating of 150 meters.

The Vision Xs has a “plug and play” 5" monitor that you can easily remove from within the housing. This system enables the monitor to be used outside of the housing, as a monitor for your DSLR or other camera. The 1920x1080p 4K monitor offers a 80° viewing angle and professional options such as histogram, focus assist, false colors, zebra, zoom, image flip and many more.

Aside from the monitor, we have added 2 batteries. One powers the monitor and the other powers the GoPro, providing the full set-up with 3 hours of autonomy. The batteries are easily rechargeable and all charging accessories are included.

As standard we have included in addition to the normal closing system, a vacuum leak detection system in the housing. After closing a small pump (incl) pulls out air, to test the air retention after closing. A green LED indicates if the housing is at the correct vacuum level and safe to dive. To open the housing and break the vacuum, a custom designed valve can be switched on to allow air in so the housing can be safely opened.

At the bottom of the housing, you wil find a video wing enabling a diverse range of mounting options. The two rugged handles allow for easy stability in the water.

Aside from all these features, this housing was made to be compact and light and designed with travel in mind. The housing offers the combination of a strong and compact housing with the functionality needed to turn using your GoPro into a professional filming experience.

The Vision Xs will retail at 1100 euros including monitor, batteries and charging accessories.
