Optional Ports (must select at least one)

Flat Port FP25 Excellent for macro work, the Flat Port allows full zoom through and use of diopters. Limited wide angle ability.

Standard Port SP25 This standard port is optically corrected for underwater use and good for medium wide and lifesize 1:1 marco work. A good low cost option for those that tend to shoot more macro than wide.

Wide Angle Port GP25A A Gates workhorse and the most popular port for Gates compact housings. Optical polycarbonate dome is low cost and field replaceable. Typical field of view is 70-80 degrees, but features less magnification for macro than the standard port.

Fathom Imaging Wide Angle Port This hi-res, distortion-free port has multiple glass elements for up to 90° field of view (dependent on camera model).

Fathom Imaging Super Wide Angle Port Provides a beautiful 110° field of view for exceptional wide angle and full zoom through capability for 1.5in/38mm macro.

Optional Light Systems

NiteRider Compact, reliable, and fully integrated to Gates housings, NiteRider video lighting is available in 20 to 40 watts of HID or halogen technology.

Green Force Elegant Belgian design is robust and powerful. Supplied by FI or optional FII batteries, the HID 50 burns 20 total watts for 120 or 240 minutes, respectively. Fully integrated with Gates.
