Vanquish Underwater Housing

Smaller, Smarter, Sharper

Vanquish housings are precision machined from Grade 4 Titanium alloys and ceramic coated for ultimate hardness, corrosion resistance and light weight.  Unlike aluminum housings Vanquish housing will never corrode and, with the modular construction, it will provide a life-time service, even when cameras change. 

Vanquish housings offer different configurations and allow usage of Nikonos and Nikonos RS Submersible lenses – the sharpest underwater optics ever made, by far. Housings that use flat ports, dome ports or adapter lenses do not offer this level of optical image quality.

Smaller

Vanquish has precision-machined titanium construction.

Small size means getting to location and getting the shot. It also means easier and safer work methods as the housing can be easily picked up with one hand – all ready to shoot. At just 7.2kg (16 lbs) – it is by far the lightest system in the industry. It can easily be mounted on a crane, jib, tripod, 3D rig, scooter, ROV and other moving platforms where large, bulky housings are too heavy and too cumbersome. It also provides safer, more efficinent work methods by eliminating risks of an injury through heavy lifting. It is also easy to ship to remote locations or take on a plane with plenty of spare luggage allowance left.

Smarter

Industry’s first real-time Telemetry Data Display (TDDTM) features miniature OLED screen which provides vital environmental information inside the housing: confirming sealing, temperature, moisture, humidity and state of the onboard battery at all times. The on-board microprocessor even calculates dew point.

Vanquish is modular. Different front modules allow integration with different and future cameras. Different rear modules allow integration with different monitoring solutions. Different body modules allow configurations specific to Surf housing, Pole Cam, Crane Operation, ROV and other uses that traditionally require different solutions.

Sharper

Vanquish Venice features true 8k+, ultra-wide angle underwater optics utilising Nikon Nikonos and Nikonos RS submersible lenses. Only submersible lenses offer the highest optical quality underwater far exceeding that of housed lenses.

This optics assures no distortions, no field curvature, no chromatic aberrations or astigmatism found in flat and dome underwater ports.

Vanquish supports large selection of high-quality submersible lenses, which can be changed in seconds without opening the housing – no custom gears, no extension ports, no alignment, and no hassle.
