X-2 Housing GIves You A (Relatively) Compact View 75m Underwater

It looks complex, but put Inon’s X-2 housing in perspective and you will appreciate its grace. Meant for Panasonic’s micro four thirds GF1, the X-2 adds bulk, but only enough to make your camera around the size of an SLR.

This approach spares divers from adding thick casing to an SLR, and winding up something, well, much larger than an SLR. And with a window for the GF1′s LCD screen, you won’t need to squint through a viewfinder when you’re at massive allowed depths of up go 75m. The X-2′s beauty comes at a price, costing around $US2200 (and $US150 for each attachable light), but really, when you’re almost 75m underwater, don’t skimp on equipment. [Inon via Wired]
