Xit 404 Tripod Bracket:
Gates Video Housings
Xit 404's original custom tripod brackets are in use around the world and inspired the Gates tripod design. Now that DSLR's are shooting beautiful HD video, we decided to work with our friends at Xit 404 to produce a custom solution for much lower price. Each tripod plate includes (3) ball mounts. Simply add your favorite legs and clamps for a complete tripod system.
Take the shake out of your video!The most common difference between professional and amateur video is the use of a tripod. You might be shooting an amazing critter, but even one wiggle or wobble can ruin the clip. Flip down one leg for monopod mode or lock down all three legs for rock steady images and take the quality of your footage to the next level.
Super low shooting angles:Low shooting angles are essential to visually separate the subject from the background. Unlike traditional land tripods, Xit 404's design allows the housing to be less than 1.5 inches off the bottom or as high as your choice of leg lengths.
Always-on design is boat deck friendly:Traditional land tripods are a pain to mount and dismount in the water. If you leave the tripod on, the housing is unstable on the boat. Xit 404's design can be left on the housing at all times. Simply flip the legs up when sitting on the boat deck. Once in the water flip the legs toward you like a gunstock to spread out your hands and stabilize mid-water shots. Flip down and lock one, two or all three legs when shooting on the bottom. If you know you will not need a tripod for the next dive, leave the lightweight plate in place and simply remove the legs and clamps. No more fumbling with clumsy land tripods and the legs are quickly added when your dive plans change.
Fits most Camera housings:The bracket is pre-drilled for all major Camera housing brands. Please specify your brand to insure you get the correct mounting hardware. If you have a different make or model, the aluminum plate can be drilled to match your housing. Drill your own or contact us to customize a plate for your needs.
Add adjustable legs to complete your system:Xit 404's simple design allows the use of any Ultralight or TLC arm as a tripod leg. For maximum flexibility add the new Ultralight adjustable tripod legs for an 11-18 inch range.
The Xit 404 Tripod Bracket for Gates is designed to mount to the bottom of the Gates housing. Tripod legs are not included with the bracket. The bracket is anodized Black and provided with three 1" diameter ball adaptors pre-mounted (these will work with industry standard clamps or with Xit 404's Twist Clamp Tripod Legs). A hardware kit is supplied specific for your housing model.
