Take 360-degree, virtual reality ready recordings under the waves.
HumanEyes Technologies have revealed a new accessory for their line up of Vuze cameras with the Vuze VR Underwater Case, providing divers the chance to capture full 360-degree, virtual reality (VR) ready footage underwater.
The Underwater Case has been designed specifically to allow the Vuze cameras to function underwater by creating the conditions needed for full spherical 3D footage recording. Built with anodized aluminum the case provides a rugged, secure enclosure, that is compact and easy to hand-hold while diving, or fixing to an underwater tripod. The eight optical domes provide a full field-of-view for the eight individual lenses of the Vuze cameras, allowing for immersive video capture.
Divers will be able to relive the amazing moments of a diving experience by using the Vuze cameras and the Underwater Case to make it easy to capture high quality 360-degree, VR ready footage. From recording a dive through a coral reef, to reliving a swim full of sharks and whales, capturing and sharing these moments is now made possible and easy with the new solution.
“Whether you’re a leisure diver on vacation or a dive club capturing an underwater adventure for your members, the Vuze VR Camera and Underwater Case enables anyone to capture immersive underwater and above water 3D VR video and relive the memories over and over again by easily sharing the content with others,” said HumanEyes General Manager of North America, Jim Malcolm. “From the International Space Station to the depths of a coral reef, the Vuze line of cameras is easy for anyone to use, and we’re excited to launch this special bundle to make underwater VR content capture more accessible for diving enthusiasts ahead of the busy summer travel season.”
The launch of the Underwater Case for the Vuze cameras is being marked with the release of a limited time introductory bundle. This package contains everything a user needs to get themselves read for 360-degree VR capturing both underwater and on land. Inside buyers will find the Underwater Case Kit, a Vuze camera and a 64GB Micro SD memory card for the MSRP £2,650 (GBP) / $2,950 (USD). This bundle is the usual price of the Underwater Case on its own making it a fantastic starting point.
The Underwater Case Kit comes with a number of items as well including the Vuze VR Underwater aluminium anodized case, a Pelican 1400 compact carry case, a camera mount plate, two bridge handles, a rubber handle grip, two pairs of extra lens domes and an assortment of screws and O-rings.
