At the Bench: Gates Underwater DEEP DRAGON Housing

AbelCine is excited to be Gates Underwater's first Proud Partner Dealership, meaning we are authorized to offer sales and rental of Gates Underwater equipment to our clients. In this blog, I want to introduce the basics of Gates housings and the factors involved in underwater photography.

I am specifically concentrating on their DEEP DRAGON housing, which can accommodate the RED Epic, Scarlet, or Dragon. I'll cover basic build concepts, take the housing into the water, and then discuss wrapping out from a dive. AbelCine is also uniquely qualified to address your interest in underwater video. At our Burbank location, there are several certified divers on staff to handle your underwater motion capture needs.

Also, we have recently posted the date for our first underwater training class, so make sure to check it out: Underwater Cinema Gear with Gates Underwater Products.
