Maybe this is an option in the future for those of us who are tired carrying their 15kg Housings. We will see which companies will follow with an underwater housing and if the quality of the camera stand up to the sony EX 1/R.

That is a REALLY awesome camera, but a 10x lens is a bit short of the current crop of Sony 20x lenses.

Nice find Klemens, thanks!

Hi Dave,
what you think about the specs. and that they use only one 1/3-type, 2.07 Megapixel Canon CMOS sensor?
The 10x lens wouldn't bother me too much as my Sony FX-1 has only 12x and with a +4 diopter macro works well.

The specs are awesome!

Too bad it is a single chip CMOS...but a 3 chip design would be larger like the Sony NX5U. The Estimated Street Price for the XF100 is $2999 and the Estimated Street Price for the XF105 is $3999 US Dollars.
