Gibson for Sony A7R II
The new 42.4 megapixel image sensor of the Sony a7R II allows even more detailed images, and the camera works without an optical low-pass filter, which could impair the high resolution. To have an optimal advantage of the high resolution sensor of the α7R II, the images should be as stable as possible. The 5-axis image stabilization system is precisely matched to the 42.4 megapixel resolution of the α7R II and allows zoom, close-up and night shots for stunningly clear images.
Like all BS Kinetics camera housing, it is built using carbon fibre and epoxy resin, along with stainless steel, POM and saltwater-proof aluminium. These components can be used to make very light waterproof housing which can be used at a diving depth of up to 160m.
The waterproof housing has a LiveView-Finder. It allows a free insight on the screen of the camera. It is attached to the posterior side of the housing. A soft, silicon O-Ring with an advantageously thick cross section operates as the housing's main sealing mechanism.
An elevated bridge at the anterior side positions the two halves of the housing securely, preventing water from dripping in when it is opened. It is fastened using a secure quick-release function.
BS Kinetics supplies ports suitable for all types of lenses with its underwater housing. The ports are fastened by means of a bayonet mount and are available in different sizes: Standard port, macro port, dome port, fish-eye and super fish-eye port. The ports can be adapted to diverse lenses by means of distance rings corresponding to each kind. With the A-Mount lens adapter (LA-EA3 35mm) other Sony AL lenses with manual focus can be used. With a Metabones adapter, Canon and Nikon lenses can also be used.
The camera is secured onto a stage and inserted into the underwater housing. The flash signal is electric transmitted to a Nicons 5 socket. Black fibre flocking on the interior walls guards against flare. This flocking can also absorb any condensation or small leakage which can occur due to lack of attention on the O-ring.
