New PRO ACTION Housing

Gates Underwater Products announces Pro Action Housing

A compact, cinema-caliber underwater housing for fast action acquisition

Poway, CA – 10 October 2016.  Gates Underwater Products – home of the worlds most reliable underwater housings – today announces the Pro Action Housing.

Designed for one mission –underwater action – the Pro Action has purpose built features for “run and gun” scenarios.  Like a sleek, small profile for the free diver pursuing bait balls. Or a surf shooter composing the perfect wave with Pro Action’s integrated, pivoting rear monitor.

Pro Action is multi-camera compatible with RED DSMC1, DSMC2 and ARRI ALEXA Mini -- a bonus for natural history filmmakers.

“Customers have repeatedly asked for a nimble action rig” says Pamela Mertz, Director of Sales.  “and the Gates Pro Action delivers – surf, free dive, explore, and more.”

Pro Action is different from its workhorse siblings DEEP WEAPON and ALEXA MINI, which are exceedingly versatile across a variety cinema, broadcast and commercial markets – the Swiss Army knife of housings.  In contrast, Pro Action is a scalpel,  targeted to the demands of professional action acquisition.

Signature Pro Action features:

  • Integrated ST5 rear monitor pivots a full 90° for easy top and rear viewing;
  • Clean, uncomplicated design.  Simplicity = reliability;
  • Multi camera compatibility with RED DSMC1, DSMC2 and ARRI Mini

  • Extensive lens support with Gates unique Lens Gear Drive system;
  • Adjustable Handle Grips for perfect hand positioning;

By its nature, Pro Action is compact and travels easy, fitting comfortably in a carry-on size Pelican case with camera / monitor / battery neatly tucked inside for the trip. And various accessories extend Pro Action’s range from ‘pole cam’ shots of risky shark action
