New Sealux CSGH5 housing for groundbreaking Lumix GH5 4K camera

Published

on

Create impressive images and videos using the groundbreaking Lumix GH5 4K camera, underwater, too, inside the new Sealux CSGH5 housing. This specialist for photos and videos stands out for its characteristics and performance:

  • Professional photo performance with exceptional moiré suppression.
  • 4K 24p cinematic video (4096×2160), plus 4K 3840×2160 60p/30p/24p.
  • High speed 225 area auto focusing in photo or video, perfect for hybrid photography.
  • Durable magnesium alloy body and exceptional shutter life meets the demands of professional use.

If required, the video signal can be transferred to an external monitor via the HDMI socket. These features, together with the integrated Time Code, allow for perfect picture control.

The new Sealux CSGH5 housing for the innovative Lumix GH5 provides perfect support for both photography and video. The basic version of the housing comes without a viewfinder, but the Sealux viewfinders can be added later on at any time to support the new high resolution OLED viewfinder of the GH5. Now, this digital system camera with its superb operability can fully show its strengths underwater, too. The new camera slide makes fitting the camera very easy. The grip fitted at the front is adjustable.

Sealux have designed the precision-fit CSGH5 housing in such a way that you can make perfect underwater use of your Lumix GH5 camera. Safety, easy key operability and all the most important functions allow you to act in a fast, effortless and focussed way, underwater too.  A special socket (optional) enables you to connect an HDMi monitor. This way, high definition image viewing in video mode is perfectly possible using the monitor.  The CSGH5 housing features small dimensions. Large O-rings, double seal shafts and keys sealed even fourfold guarantee a maximum degree of safety. The camera is precision-guided on a special slide and fitted inside the front part of the housing, thereby excluding fitting errors.


Housing

The housing is made of a seawater-proof aluminium alloy. It is CNC milled out of a monoblock, anodized in black and in addition, powder coated on the outside.  The housing has an M6 thread to fit, for example, a small video light (Matrix 2200 Di) or our  5” HDMI monitor on top of the housing for relaxed underwater video shoots.  Minimal dimensions and weight. Excellent taring with all ports.  Ports must be ordered separately. Colour: powder coated in metallic silver.

Standard functions

The following functions come as standard:  ON-OFF, shutter release, comfortable operation of frontal control dial from the grip, rear control dial, mode selector wheel, white balance, ISO adjustment, exposure correction, video-rec,  keys for playback, Fn5, Fn2, Fn3, Fn4, DSF as well as cursor and menu keys. In addition MF/AF switch, AF/AE-Lock, and the center position of the joystick. Fitted on the left you find zoom or manual focus as well as the lens release facility for changing lenses with the camera fitted inside the housing.

Grip rail

The grip rail is adjustable and detachable for transport. It comes with soft ergonomic rubber handles or grips and two T-pieces to accommodate two flash arms as well as with two threaded holes to attach safety holding straps.

Locking devices 

Two spring-loaded locks with safety catches keep the housing locked with a high clamping force.   Housing bayonet:  The bayonet is sufficiently large to accommodate new large diameter lenses, too. This way, lenses can be changed with the camera inside the housing. The flat and wide angle ports are locked.

Published

on

As a boost to help the diving industry, NAUI are still offering a FREE Instructor cross-over course together with five free certifications to all Instructors. This can include Open Water, Advance, Rescue, Nitrox and various other specialities and can be mixed and matched so all five do not necessarily need to be for the same certification.

NAUI have also frozen the membership fees for 2021 for instructors crossing over or restarting.

NAUI’s Southern UK Rep Simon Lodge says: “Throughout this year, the diving industry has severely suffered so as a result, to help kickstart the diving industry NAUI will not be charging membership fees 2020/2021 to any new instructors.” 

Founded in 1960, NAUI Worldwide is one of the scuba industry’s largest not-for-profit agencies whose purpose is to enable people to enjoy underwater activities as safely as possible by providing the highest quality practical education, and to actively promote the preservation and protection of the world’s underwater environments.
