Gates Underwater Housing for the Canon HF-S20, S21, S200 & S30
You can see details and bid where it's listed over on ebay.
This is a great underwater housing and in excellent working condition. It's been used on about 70 dives and produced beautiful video. I've used many underwater housings and nothing beats a Gates for quality and design.
Combined with the Canon HF-S21, HFS-20, HFS-200 or HFS-30 produces outstanding HD 1080p video. Gates has cleverly allowed the camcorder remote to work in the housing allowing anything that can be set with the remote/menus to be done in the housing. This allows custom white balance to be set underwater - a must for high quality video.
This include both the Standard port and flat (macro) port with lens caps. Also includes the full set of extra o-rings provided by Gates and the excellent Gates manual. The red filter has been upgraded from the standard plastic one to a glass filter. New with the extra port, this housing cost over $2600.
I have been very happy with this housing and it has worked beautifully. Easy to assemble with a very reliable seal. It has never shown even the slightest sign of a leak. Handles come off easily for travel.
I am only selling it because I have switched to a different camcorder that does not work with this housing.
