Amphibico has announced their new and upcoming Phenom Z7LE for the Sony HVR-Z7U HDV camcorder. The stand alone housing with no port will be introduced for the price of $4795CAN. The user can than choose the type of port he feels will suite his needs. There are 3 port options, the standard Dome which keeps the same FOV (field of view) as the camcorder underwater and still giving full zoom-through capability. The flat port for those who in most part do macro filming, it can become a great back-up lens as well. Than they have the 94 full zoom-through high definition wide angle port, a multi-purpose lens which can be used for ultra wide shooting and can zoom in to 12”/30cm for good macro.

The “NEW” Phenom Z7LE for the Sony HVR-Z7U is an electronic and mechanical combined housing which gives a complete control of your camcorder while filming your underwater scenes. Based upon their track record in the reliability of the present Phenom FXZ1 they have added the new full 2 year Amphibico warranty.
