Gates Deep Weapon Underwater Video Housing
DEEP WEAPON is the fitting next step of Gates workhorse underwater digital cinema systems. DEEP RED, DEEP EPIC, and DEEP DRAGON are precursors to the latest resolution evolution: underwater 8K. DEEP WEAPON is backward compatible with all DSMC cameras (Epic, Scarlet, Dragon) and the new DSMC² cameras (Raven, Scarlet-W and Weapon). Continued support for a wide range of PL and DSLR glass, external monitor, adjustable grips at fingertip focus / iris / zoom controls, and adjustable buoyancy / trim are carried forward. And most remarkably, REDMOTE communication enabled is provided standard with the DEEP WEAPON kit via a cabled interface.
Gates housings are tasked with high profile broadcast and cinema productions. Failure is not an option, so Don’t take a Chance…. take a Gates!
