Amphibico Housing for the Sony Z7



Amphibico is proud to announce the new and upcoming Phenom Z7LE for the Sony HVR-Z7U HDV camcorder. The stand alone housing with no port will be introduced at the incredible low price of $4795CAN. The user can than choose the type of port he/she feels will suite their needs. There are 3 port options, the standard Dome which keeps the same FOV (field of view) as the camcorder underwater and still giving full zoom-through capability. The flat port for those who in most part do macro filming, it can become a great back-up lens as well. Than we have the 94° full zoom-through high definition wide angle port, a multi-purpose lens which can be used for ultra wide shooting and can zoom in to 12”/30cm for good macro…

The “NEW” Phenom Z7LE for the Sony HVR-Z7U is an electronic and mechanical combined housing which gives a complete control of your camcorder while filming your underwater scenes. Given the proven track record in the reliability of the present Phenom FXZ1 we have added the new full 2 year Amphibico warranty.

Amphibico’s development team has excelled to a new level by accessing from the housing, all the important features such as White Balance, Gain, Shutter Speed, Iris and manual focus. Most of those who are familiar with Amphibico’s products will know that the housing construction quality and reliability is still the highest you could find in the industry. That is why Amphibico once again, is leading the way of technology and performance with underwater imaging.
