XR Series Housings
Housings for the Sony HDR-XR500v and HDR-XR520v.
     We have now added a new underwater housing designed to be used for the new Sony HDR-XR500v and HDR-XR520v camcorder models. This new housing has push button electronic controls that operate some camcorder functions by having just one wire plug from the housing microprocessor assembly into the new Sony A/V-R jack on the camcorder.


Features of the housing:

1. Push button electronic controls that operate: Record-On/Off, Zoom-Tele/Wide, Power-On/Off and Photo.
2. Room on the inside of the housing for the camcorders large color view screen to be in a wide open position for easy viewing
3. Internal UR Pro "CY" color correction filter that can be rotated in and out of position when needed (normally used between 10 and 60 feet of water depth to help capture the natural colors).
4. Standard flat glass/machined aluminum port for camcorder lens view.
5. Clear rear door assembly so the user can see everything inside the housing at all times.
6. Large carry handle attached to the top of the housing.
7. Buoyancy control weights included.
8. Rubber lens port protector and spare rear quad ring included.
9. Tested and rated to 200 feet.
Optional Items:
A. Upgraded push button control system which adds the ability to do a fast wide zoom.
B. Wide angle (.45) machined aluminum port system in place of the standard flat port.
NOTE: This is not a full zoom through lens
C. Two mechanical controls that allow access to the camcorders touch screen for functions like switching between Photo Mode and movie mode, manual focus, white balance (including "One Touch" manual mode) and most other menu items.
