The Amphibico “GENESIS” line of compact Prosumer HD housings is proud to announce its next creation for the Sony NEX-FS700 camera. The Sony NEX-FS700U Super 35 Camcorder is a fully professional large-sensor video camera.

Hot on the heels of the FS100, this compact, highly modular camera uses a very similar-sized Super 35 CMOS sensor as the FS100. But as a marked improvement over that earlier model's sensor, the FS700 features a native 4K resolution sensor.

GENESIS Underwater Video housings for the Sony NEX-FS700U Super 35 Camcorder

Unlike smaller, broadcast-style sensors or the larger "full-frame" sensors of some DSLRs, the NEX-FS700's imaging area matches that of standard Hollywood film cameras. The sensor's large size offers a variety of other advantages, including increased control over depth of field, higher sensitivity in low light, lower image noise, and an exceptional dynamic range. One unique feature for a camcorder of this class is the FS700's ability to record bursts of super-slow motion video at rates up to a whopping 960 fps. (These bursts range from 8 to 16 seconds, depending of the frame rate). Full-resolution recording is possible at up to 240 fps; at 480 and 960 fps, resolution is reduced.

As for the housing, it is built with the same high quality solid aluminum construction as our previous pro line of housings, no compromise was taken to create the New “GENESIS” line from Amphibico. Keeping in mind total ergonomics and underwater balance, its compact design with an intergraded electronic grip system makes the unit extremely user friendly underwater. Our engineers worked very diligently on its design, keeping in mind size, weight, balance and it’s on board electronics allowing easy and complete access to all key camcorder functions, it will give users the ability to create the best possible HD video underwater.
