THE FLEXIBILITY OF C-MOUNT

C-Mount was developed in the 1920’s for early film cameras. It was popular for home video cameras up until the 1970’s and has since become the standard for high resolution security and machine vision cameras and lenses. As a result, there is a library containing countless lenses from almost 100 years. In addition, it’s a common mount type for professional scientific and medical imaging equipment so you can attach your camera directly to many telescopes, microscopes and more! Another benefit is that C-Mount is so common that adapters exist for almost every lens type you can think of.

  • Compatibility: All Gates housings except PD150/PD170/XL1/XL1s/HD1

Video Splitter / Amplifier DF773


  • The DF773 splits and amplifies surface feed video signals, especially when extended lengths of cable are required.

  • Components: Video amplifier module, one or two EO Bulkhead Connectors, 9V battery

  • Marine-grade RG59 Coax is available in custom lengths to suit most any need. Includes E.O. male connector for housing connection, and gold contact RCA or BNC connector at the opposite end (specify when ordering).
  • For lengths exceeding 300ft / 91m Gates recommends the DF773 Video Splitter/Amplifier to ensure a robust video signal is delivered topside.

HD-SDI Surface Feed


  • High speed digital HD-SDI surface feed is available for topside high definition viewing. 50 to over 300 feet, the link includes gold contact bulkhead and RCA connectors and certified coaxial cable.

Water Alarm


  • For that extra peace of mind, Gates offers an optional moisture detector for nearly all housings. In the rare event that water enters your housing, the detector sets off a shrill warning heard underwater.
  • Power: 6V or 9V battery, included
  • Alarm level: ~100db in air

Filters

UR Pro


  • UR Pro Color correction filters are available in ‘blue water’ and ‘green water’ versions. Blue water is standard on all Gates housings, green water optional. Both are available in optical polycarbonate and glass.

  • When ordering specify you camera model and lens size (e.g. 37mm, 58mm, 72mm)

White Balance Slate


  • The Gates WB slate is like having a third arm to hold a white card in front of the lens while setting the white balance. Use the other side for taking notes and camera settings.

Gates Tripod

X-2 for EOS6D ■

The Canon EOS 6D is Canon’s most compact full-frame digital SLR delivering incredible image quality with many of advanced features including newly designed 20.2 Megapixel Full-Frame CMOS sensor. 
The INON X-2 for EOS6D housing is built on the concept of “Professional and Lightweight” for professional image quality, high mobility underwater and superb cost effectiveness in compact and lightweight body. Buttons and levers on the housing are carefully located as much as like camera’s control itself for intuitive operation underwater. You never miss shooting opportunity. INON offers an underwater camera system in total with strobe, viewfinder, MRS Port, LED flashlight and wide range of arm products all from INON for fast and smooth underwater photography/videography. 

■ Product features ■

● Lightweight and Compact Ultraprecise Cast Aluminum Body
The X-2 for EOS6D is made from corrosion resistance aluminum alloy by ultraprecise cast manufacturing technique to fuse design, weight and durability in higher dimension. The cast manufacturing technique enables thin body plate with complicated curved design which is not possible with machining. Lightweight and durable aluminum alloy body has acquired reliability, durability and controllability even in severe underwater. 

● Stress-free Control Layout to Capture the Moment
Cast manufacturing allows flexible design to put various ingenuities for trouble-free underwater operation as like controlling camera on land, where your right thumb and mid finger securely hold a housing without effort, index finger can naturally access to the shutter release lever and aperture or shutter speed can be easily adjusted without seeing those dials during checking composition through the viewfinder. The INON X-2 for EOS6D pursues intimate controllability to “capture the moment” in addition to accessibility to all necessary controls/dials for underwater photography/videography (*5).

(*5)
[Quick control button], [Multi-controller] and [Multi function lock switch] are not accessible. 

● Proven and Reliable Waterproof Design
Buttons, dial levers are not directly attached on the aluminum alloy housing body but installed via brass bearings to prevent the aluminum housing body from galling caused by sliding of buttons and movement of dial levers to secure waterproof property. Only minimum parts replacement can refresh these controls even you need to change bearings. Buttons and dial levers carry oil bearing type INON yellow O-rings to prevent accidental flooding due to lack of grease. Also their size is thicker than required to enhance waterproof property.

● Optical Flash Trigger
Equipped with a built-in circuit (*6) to convert sync signal transmitted from camera’s hot shoe to optical signal. The unit triggers an external strobe by LEDs underneath of the Optical D Connector. Flooding-free fiber optics connection is supported to benefit simple yet reliable external strobe shooting simply by plug-in “Optical D Cable Type L”. Different length of Optical D Cable products like “Optical D Cable L Type L (68cm/27in)” or “Optical D Cable LL Type L (110cm/43in)” expand application of strobe shooting such as “off-camera strobe shooting”.

(*6) 
The Optical Flash Trigger converts electrical strobe trigger signal from camera hot-shoe into LED flash (once) but does not support TTL Auto exposure or pre-flash system. Compatible flash mode of an external strobe is [External Auto] and [Manual]. When using INON Z-240, D-2000 series, S-2000 or D-180 series, it is necessary to deactivate Advanced Cancel Circuit (push and lock the switch/insert the magnet) to accommodate with non pre-flash type camera. 

● Interchangeable Four Viewfinders
INON offers four different finder units; “Finder Window Unit”, “Pick-up Finder Unit 3”, “45° Viewfinder Unit” (*7), “Straight Viewfinder Unit” (*8) to accommodate with various subjects/shooting conditions as like selecting camera lens.

(*7) 
Finder corners may get slightly dark.

(*8) 
As the Straight Viewfinder is originally designed for APS-C format, using for a full frame camera will have blind section on the center of the upper edge and either left or right edge may have slight blind section as well.

● Wide Variety of Lens Port to Support from Ultra macro to Fish-eye Imaging
Wide variety of lens system are supported such as “EF50mm F2.5 Compact Macro”, “EF100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM” for macro, “EF8-15mm F4L Fisheye USM” for both circular and rectilinear fish-eye and 「EF16-35mm F2.8L II USM” for ultra wide imaging so on. All compatible lens ports use optical lens (multi-coated) to exploit high image quality captured by EOS 6D. Macro lens operation can benefit INON unique MRS Port system turning lens barrel by magnetic attraction where you can control focusing without mechanical stress as like to adjust focusing by focusing ring directly on land.

■「X-2 for EOS70D」■

The Canon 「EOS70D」is equipped with groundbreaking AF technology 「Dual Pixel CMOS AF」where each and single pixel on the CMOS sensor is consists of two independent photodiodes enabling you to shoot video like a camcorder with smooth, fast, and accurate autofocus.
The INON 「X-2 for EOS70D」housing is built on the concept of 『Fast and Smooth』involving professional photographers in development. Buttons and levers on the housing are carefully located as much as like camera’s control itself for intuitive operation underwater. INON offers an underwater camera system in total with S-TTL Auto strobe, viewfinder, MRS Port, LED flashlight and wide range of arm products all from INON for fast and smooth underwater photography/videography.

■ Product features ■

A
● Lightweight and Compact Ultraprecise Cast Aluminum Body
The X-2 for EOS70D is made from corrosion resistance aluminum alloy by ultraprecise cast manufacturing technique to fuse design, weight and durability in higher dimension. The cast manufacturing technique enables thin body plate with complicated curved design which is not possible with machining. Lightweight and durable aluminum alloy body has acquired reliability, durability and controllability even in severe underwater.

A
● Stress-free Control Layout to Capture the Moment
Cast manufacturing allows flexible design to put various ingenuities for trouble-free underwater operation as like controlling camera on land, where your right thumb and mid finger securely hold a housing without effort, index finger can naturally access to the shutter release lever and aperture or shutter speed can be easily adjusted without seeing those dials during checking composition through the viewfinder. The INON X-2 for EOS70D pursues intimate controllability to “capture the moment” in addition to accessibility to all necessary controls/dials for underwater photography/videography.
* 「AF area selection mode button」, 「Multi-controller」, and 「Multi function lock switch」 are not accessible.

A
● Proven and Reliable Waterproof Design
Buttons, dial levers are not directly attached on the aluminum alloy housing body but installed via brass bearings to prevent the aluminum housing body from galling caused by sliding of buttons and movement of dial levers to secure waterproof property. Only minimum parts replacement can refresh these controls even you need to change bearings. Buttons and dial levers carry oil bearing type INON yellow O-rings to prevent accidental flooding due to lack of grease. Also their size is thicker than required to enhance waterproof property.

A
● Fully Compatible with “S-TTL” Auto Strobe System
Flooding-free four Optical D Connectors are equipped as standard feature to benefit simple yet reliable “S-TTL” Auto shooting simply by plug-in 「Optical D Cable Type L」. It is important to effectively transmit built-in flash light to fiber optics to benefit accuracy of S-TTL Auto. The X-2 for EOS70D housing is equipped with a mirror inside to induce built-in flash light to Optical D Connectors properly to provide stable and accurate S-TTL Auto exposure control.

A
● Interchangeable Four Viewfinders
INON offers four different finder units; 「Finder Window」,「Pick-up Finder 2」,「45°Viewfinder」,「Straight Viewfinder」to accommodate with various subjects/shooting conditions as like selecting camera lens.

A
● Wide Variety of Lens Port to Support from Ultra macro to Fish-eye Imaging
Wide variety of lens system are supported such as 「EF-S60mm F2.8 Macro USM」, 「EF100mm F2.8L Macro IS USM」for macro, 「EF8-15mm F4L Fisheye USM」 for fish-eye imaging, video oriented 「EF-S18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM」, 「EF-S10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM」 and so on. All compatible lens ports use optical lens (multi-coated) to exploit high image quality captured by EOS70D. With INON unique MRS Port system turning lens barrel by magnetic attraction where you can control focusing without mechanical stress as like to adjust focusing by focusing ring directly on land. Off course INON 「UFL-MR130 EFS60 Underwater Micro Fisheye Lens」 is compatible so you can shoot unique footage with EOS HD movie function.
