EYE CANDY

The Wahoo HD offers visual inspiration for creative underwater video and photography. With over 1.1 million dots densely packed on a 5 inch screen, the Sony CLM-V55 monitor offers the sharpest image available in a compact monitor. Configured with HDMI connectors, it delivers unparalleled image quality with 720 and 1080 signals. Finally, DSLR users can see critical focus and white balance color underwater.

FOCUS PEAKING
Not sure if that pygmy seahorse is in focus? With a click you can activate Focus Peaking mode. The high resolution screen switches to black and white for maximum contrast. Sharp areas are highlighted in bold red outlines making it easier to follow focus when subjects are on the move.

450 Ft / 137 M DEPTH RATING
The rugged aluminum WahooHD housing is engineered for technical diving to 450 feet and features oversized control knobs for easy use with gloves. You might not dive that deep, but your monitor can.

NEW PLUGGABLE CABLE DESIGN
Our new pluggable cable design allows the Wahoo to be removed for travel or when not required. Most importantly we believe our pluggable design is the most reliable in the industry. HDMI connections offer a true HD signal, but they require 19 wires and are very sensitive to water and corrosion. Our "pass through" cable design keeps the connection safely inside the housing and away from accidental drips.

RIGHT ANGLE / LOW PROFILE BULKHEAD
Our pluggable bulkhead features a right angle cable to minimize it's footprint on the camera housing and cleanly direct the cable from any mount position. When the Wahoo is unplugged and not in use, a low profile waterproof cap makes the footprint even smaller.

HOUSING COMPATIBILITY
We are still in the process of testing the Wahoo HD with all camera and housing combinations. If your camera or housing is not listed, please contact us.

COMPATIBILITY WITH 2012 CAMERA MODELS:
Our engineering team has worked closely with all major camera housing brands to verify Wahoo compatibility for Nikon D4, Nikon D800, and Canon 5D Mark III housings. We will update the chart below once our technicians confirm installs. Please call to confirm your order.
