Fujifilm has announced the launch of an official dive housing for the XQ1
camera, which was announced in October 2013.
Now the diving community can benefit from the fast response times and the low light capabilities of the XQ1 with the launch of a new underwater housing that allows you to use the camera at depths of up to 40m underwater.
The latest EXR Processor II in the XQ1 more than doubles the previous model’s processing speed, controlling noise and maintaining image clarity meaning that underwater blues and greens are beautifully and accurately reproduced.
The WP-XQ1 Underwater Housing allows you to use the XQ1 at depths of up to 40m. Built from Transparent Polycarbonate the sturdy housing not only protects the camera but allows you to use all its controls whilst underwater.
You can easily use the wheel to move the Control Dial and adjust settings or alternatively the direct drive buttons all have their own easy access buttons.
White balance controls allow you to set the actual colour temperature or fine tune white balance by using the new white balance shift graphic controls.
The XQ1 dive kit will be available in the UK through the network of authorised Fujifilm Dive Centres nationwide.
