Gates Pro Action Housing

Compact, Cinema Caliber Housing for Fast Action Acquisition

Designed for one mission – underwater action – the new Gates Pro Action has purpose built features for “run and gun” scenarios.  Like a sleek, small profile for the free diver pursuing bait balls. Or the surf shooter composing the perfect wave with Pro Action’s integrated, pivoting external monitor. And multi-camera compatibility – RED DSMC1 / DSMC2 and ARRI ALEXA Mini – is a bonus for natural history filmmakers.

Pro Action travels easy, fitting comfortably in a carry-on size Pelican case with camera / monitor / battery neatly tucked inside for the trip. Pro Action accepts all DSLR glass and smaller PL mount lenses, and.various accessories extend Pro Action’s range including ‘pole cam’ action shots of risky shark action.

The Gates Pro Action Housing is tailor made for surf, dive and exploratory imaging. And like all Gates products, Pro Action comes with our legendary 2 year warranty and customer support.
