Designed and manufactured in San Diego, California, Gates’ extensive line of housings generally support a wide range of camera models, including ARRI Mini/Mini LF & ALEXA, RED, Phantom Flex 4K Camera, and many others. Each housing is individually tested for fit, function, and waterproof integrity.
More than a simple waterproof case, Gates’ housings are characterized by a combination of extreme customizability, as well as impressive integration and stabilization. Each housing integrates with a camera to adapt and improve upon the camera’s features for underwater shooting, with stainless steel controls that enable smooth operations and easy shooting. The machined 6061-T6 aluminium housing material provides strength and corrosion-free performance even after years of use.
Whether it’s for underwater filmmaking or documentary productions, Gates is dependable for a wide range of professional needs and today serves various markets such as cinema, media production, and broadcast, among others. Gates’ housings come with a two-year, renewable warranty that covers defects in materials and workmanship.
