High Definition has upped the ante for acceptable video quality. Once upon a time only big budget production houses could afford the richness of 1080i resolution. Today with the FX1 and the HC1, that quality is in the hands of the masses! Light & Motion is leading the HD underwater revolution with our Bluefin series housings. Whether you choose the Bluefin FX1 or the Bluefin HC1, you'll enjoy the ease of use and high performance that we're famous for.
The Bluefin HC1 is designed with an integrated system of housing, lights, monitor, and optics. Set-up is a snap. Simply attach the camera to the tray, plug in the control and video cables, and slide the unit into the housing. You'll love the positive snap as the camera locks into position for perfect optical alignment. Now attach the rear plate by rotating the self-locking latches. Watching the double o-ring seals gliding into place gives you peace of mind as you prep for your dive.
Whether you've chosen the Zoom Macro or a Wide Angle optic, you'll be amazed by the true color and richness that can only be provided by High Definition video. Constructed from industrial grade aluminum, machined, anodized and depth rated to 300 feet, the Bluefin HC1 housing has an advanced feature set that's laid out in a compact, easy to use design.
Controls include power on/off, record start/stop, double tap variable zoom control, electronic manual focus and momentary auto focus on/off. Housing also provides access to iris control and the tele macro function. Smart Grip Handles provide access to VTR playback for instant footage review. Also included is a Flip Down Color Correction Filter that provides easy transitions between ambient and artificial light.
Smart Grip Handles put important functions where you need them, at your fingertips. Handles provide non-penetrating push button controls, utilizing IR transmitters and receivers. No fumbling around for awkward levers and dials. As such, the housing is a natural extension of your hands, so capturing that perfect video sequence is made easy. With the Easy Load camera tray setup is simple. Double O-ring Seals and Self Locking Rotary Latches provide the security you would expect, allowing you the peace of mind to focus on your passion.
Housing can be purchased alone or as part of a comprehensive Travel Package with an Integrated Lighting System. Complete the system with an external Monitor that can control the housing from up to 300 feet away. To help you take the plunge, we are offering a time limited trade-in special.
