It is my understanding that Gates is almost ready to ship their housings for the Sony PMW-EX1 video camera.

Other than the lone stock image all are using, I cannot find any other images of the Gates PMW-EX1 housing so perhaps these are the first.

One thing I noted was the rear viewfinder does not have the ability to adjust it for the presbyopia prevalent amongst the age demographic that can afford these housings. ;) With my Amphibico Phenom housing, in the event I do something like flood out my external HD widescreen HD monitor like I did last trip, I can revert back to the rear viewfinder which is adjusted for my magnification diopter needs.

Gates has experienced some issues with some of the systems for the EX1, so they are being proactive:

SP44 Dome Port (http://www.gateshousings.com/CnoticeSP44.html)

Magnified Viewfinder (http://www.gateshousings.com/CnoticeEX1.html)
