Founded in Minnesota in 1981 by Michael Hastings, AquaVideo relocated to South Florida in 1984.
In 1982 AquaVideo became the first company to manufacture and market self-contained underwater video systems. AquaVideo's client list reads like a who's who of dive professionals, government agencies, major corporations, and virtually all of America's major oceanographic institutes.
Designed for the most discriminating underwater videographer, the Aqua Video MC-HC3 is a rugged, reliable, high quality Marine Case for the Sony HDR-HC3 high definition camcorder. Suitable for wet weather, water sports, and underwater video applications to depths of 90 meters/300 feet, it is compact, easy to set up, and easy to use. Designed to be used with an accessory wide angle converter (supplied) it provides extreme wide angle of view for dramatically clearer, more colorful underwater pictures. The dome port optical system corrects for distortions and aberrations that would otherwise occur, yet allows true, magnified macro and zooming functions - without having to change lenses or optical setup (to about 50% of zoom range - full range can be easily achieved with a diopter). An optional underwater color correction filter is also available.
