Gates Deep Epic

Well I've had my Gates Deep Epic now for a couple of weeks and it is working like a charm. I'm using it with the Tokina 10-17 and the images look great. I've done a few commercial pool shoots with it but unfortunately I can't post the footage,here are a couple of quick stills from a dive the other day. Visibility was only 4-5m so nothing mind blowing but it gives an you an idea. There are some images of the housing on my facebook page if anyone is interested.

Happy to answer any questions and I'll post some decent footage in a week or so when the conditions get better here in Sydney.

Hi Jonathan, good for you! What is the price range of the Gates housing for Epic?

Re: Gates Deep Epic

Thanks Lauri,

It's 18K without ports, you are looking at about $25k for a working unit.

Re: Gates Deep Epic

Thats an expensive "toy" Jonathan!
Looking forward to view some lovely UW shot from down under...
The Epic is a bit over my budget... But the new BMD CC looks like a nice steep up for me in to a more cinema camera. If I get one I'll build a housing for it....

How much light will you be using with you Epic? Twin HMI?

Re: Gates Deep Epic

ha ha, yes very expensive toy! But it is paying it's way.

Generally down to about 15m in reasonably clear water I use natural light. Deeper than that I use HID's and LED's somewhere between 500 - 2000 lumens

Not more? I thought that Epic needed more light... well your ocean is a bit clearer that mine...

Re: Gates Deep Epic

Looking good Jonathan!
Is it a Scarlet or Epic you are shooting with?

Re: Gates Deep Epic

This was shot with a Scarlet which I own, but the great thing is it fits both.
