ELEC TRO P HYSIC S
ASTROSCOPE
Night Vision Videography
“Night Vision” is the technology that provides the miracle of vision in total darkness and the improvement of vision in low
light environments. Today, the most popular and well known method of performing night vision is based on the use of
image intensifiers. Image intensifiers are commonly used in night vision goggles and night scopes.
HOW THEY WORK:
This method of night vision amplifies the available light to
achieve better vision. An objective lens focuses available
light (photons) on the photocathode of an image intensifier.
The light energy causes electrons to be released from the
cathode which are accelerated by an electric field to
increase their speed (energy level). These electrons enter
holes in a microchannel plate and bounce off the internal
specially-coated walls which generate more electrons as the
electrons bounce through. This creates a denser “cloud” of electrons
representing an intensified version of the original image.
All image intensifiers operate in the
above fashion. Technological differences
over the past 40 years have been
commonly identified by distinct
generations of image intensifiers.
Intensified camera systems usually
incorporate an image intensifier to
create a brighter image of the low-light
scene which is then viewed by a
traditional camera.
The final stage of the image intensifier
involves electrons hitting a phosphor
screen. The energy of the electrons makes
the phosphor glow. The visual light shows
the desired view to the user or to an
attached photographic camera or video
device. A green phosphor is used in these
applications because the human eye can
differentiate more shades of green than any other color, allowing for
greater differentiation of objects in the picture.
Advantages
Disadvantages
Excellent low-light level sensitivity
Some light is required. This method is not
useful when there is essentially no light.
Enhanced visibility yields the best possible
recognition and identification performance.
High resolution; Low power and cost
Ability to identify people
Inferior daytime performance when
compared to daylight-only methods
Possibility of blooming when observing
bright sources under low-light conditions.
AstroScope 9323B-3N
The ultimate night vision module. At its heart is the image intensifier,
transforming dark, moonlit or starlit nights (below 10-4 lux) into bright,
high-resolution scenes that can be seen through the viewfinder and easily
recorded. Mounted between the camera and the lens, it dramatically
extends the camera’s usable light range by 8 to10 f-stops, turning any
2/3” bayonet-mount ENG/EFP, it requires no set-up, calibration or training.
The module maintains full electronic control of the lens iris and zoom and
draws minimal power from the camera battery via the lens cable connection. The sturdy design of the AstroScope 9323B-3N
enables it to support the weight of the heaviest objective lenses.
Easy-to-Use
1) Remove the objective lens and disconnect the lens cable from the camera body.
2) Attach the 93B-Series to the camera’s B4 lens mount and plug the module’s
lens/power cable into the camera’s lens jack.
3) Re-attach the objective lens to the front of the AstroScope
93B and plug the lens cable into the module’s lens jack. You
are ready for nighttime or low-light video recording!

CAMBOOK
The Economical and Versatile Book of Charts
CamBook is DSC Lab’s economical and versatile book of charts that fit in your briefcase.
If you’re on-the-go and involved in HD, SD or film production, you'll find CamBook invaluable.
CamBook offers many of the benefits of regular CamAlign charts, at a price that makes it
affordable for even the smallest productions. Like regular CamAligns, CamBook charts are wide
dynamic range and washable. While regular CamAligns are mounted on aircraft aluminum,
light weight CamBook charts are mounted on environmentally-friendly composite material.
All charts offer16:9 and 4:3 framing and include a vinyl folder. Manufactured to slightly wider tolerances than regular
CamAligns, CamBooks are batch— not individually calibrated.
CamBook 4 (Four Charts):
◆ 6 primary colors and 11 step spectrophotometrically neutral grayscale
on one chart makes lining up/matching cameras to a waveform
monitor and vectorscope a breeze. Shooting this pattern at the head
of each take will expedite customization and correction in post.
◆ Multiburst lens resolution testing pattern up to 800 TV LPPH helps
maximize your lens options. Use to test existing lenses for chromatic
aberration and other issues.
◆ Set critical back focus using DSC’s unique Backfocus Star– an
enhanced Siemens star pattern. Temperature changes are known to
affect back focus - stay sharp by using the BackFocus Star on set and
in testing.
◆ CamWhite (spectrophotometrically neutral white reference).
This accurate white balance card should be the only source you ever
use to white balance your cameras.

CamFocus
Use CamFocus to critically focus HD/SD video cameras, and to white balance accurately. Diminutive
versions of DSC’s regular CamAligns, CamFocus is the perfect accessory for video shooters, producers and
DPs on the go - as well as for camera operators and engineers! Use CamFocus for critical focusing on the set
and to white balance any television, video and digital camera. CamFocus cards consist of two surfaces of
chart material laminated together back-to-back; DSC’s unique extended “bow-tie” star and a “TrueWhite”
white balance chip. The BackFocus star helps you “pop” cameras into
focus, quickly and easily. Simply position the star next to the subject/talent’s face, and adjust the camera to optimal
sharpness. The “TrueWhite” chip helps you to make the most of a camera’s alignment - and to reproduce skin tones
and colors with accuracy.

Easy to use, instructions and
on-chart checklists for
suggested use enable many
kinds of users to enjoy the
full benefit of DSC’s FB
charts. Chart output is easily
interpreted on familiar
waveform and vectorscope
displays, both in camera
set-up and post. These
compact double-sided charts
save time and storage space,
and are economically priced for tight budgets.
Essential tools for HD, use FrontBox charts to match your camera’s set-up
with your project’s distribution mechanism. Wide dynamic range
grayscales on FB charts generate consistent signals more representative
of those found in real-life. Reproduce grays faithfully through the entire
tonal range, using “color-true” grayscales. Made with DSC unique
technology grayscale steps are spectrophotometrically neutral.
Match and “paint” cameras, they use the latest ITU-R BT.709/SMPTE 274M
reference primaries in all its test products. All FB models feature DSC’s
extended BackFocus pattern. This unique “bowtie” star is an ideal tool
for checking/setting camera BackFocus. When captured on tape or
film, DSC’s BackFocus pattern also functions as a convenient “frame and
focus” chart for HD.
Like regular CamAligns, FB Series Charts are wide dynamic range and
washable. While regular CamAligns are mounted on aircraft aluminum,
light weight FrontBox charts are plastic-mounted. Manufactured to
slightly wider tolerances than regular CamAligns, production-oriented FB
charts do not include individual calibrations.

CHROMADUMONDE
The “Impossible˝ Color Chip Chart
Many video professionals consider calibration charts a necessity for optimizing camera
performance and the production value of images. All DCS Labs’ charts are designed with
that philosophy in mind and work equally well in engineering or production work. They
can be used to evaluate a camera’s color matrix and gamma with a waveform/vectorscope.
A chart can be particularly useful in reproducing skins tones, as well as custom or difficult
colors, such as turquoise, purple, and other colors which occur at prism crossovers. It can
also be used to check and adjust cameras on the fly and immediately gauge the effect of
any hue changes on surrounding colors. This feature can be especially useful when using
"green screens" or other digital special effects.
Designed for calibrating color with virtually any video camera throughout the world, ChromaDuMonde (Colors of the World) are high performance
charts made to the latest SMPTE 274M (ITU-R BT.709) international colorimetry standards. Whether used in production or in post, ChromaDuMonde
charts generate precise hexagonal-shaped displays for HD, SD and NTSC television images. After gamma is set using the charts’ precise crossed
grayscales, colorimetry can be set by positioning the charts’ 24 color signals in their HD vectorscope boxes and intermediate positions. While
designed primarily for HD TV calibrated offsets are provided for the purists who want to know the theoretical colorimetric differences between HD
and NTSC for example.
They provide precise information about how camera hue adjustments are affecting the full gamut of color reproduction. Image quality and
consistency can be enhanced by recording chart information to tape or film, and using it in post as a baseline production reference. For scene-toscene consistency, record a few chart frames with every lighting change - to facilitate/expedite color-correcting, matching footage, and digital/special
effects. Chart information provides a foundation for users’ creativity and innovation.
All ColorDuMonde charts feature separation between the grayscale and color bars suggested by Steve Lucas, as well as DSC Labs’ exclusive
watermarked title and serial bar.

Why should you settle for an ordinary white
balance when it’s easy to get the warmer and
richer images that clients and audiences prefer?
For professional cameramen, videographers,
and digital photographers a “true” white balance
is rarely acceptable any more. This system is a
sophisticated set of white balance cards that
make it easy to get a warmer white balance, and
keep the “warm balance” consistent throughout
the shoot — with exact precision. They are the
fastest, easiest, and most consistent way of manipulating your camera’s white balance to
improve skin tones and eliminate the cold electronic look that CCDs provide.
◆ Work with all professional TV/video cameras and all lenses. With several different grades of
warming to select from, you can get exacting control over your camera’s color balance.
◆ WarmCards are used regularly on just about every network news magazine, nightly news
program, and all the major cable channels.
◆ Saves video editors time color correcting and enhancing footage in post

Box-FS Holder for Firestore FS-4 Series
Manufactured from aluminum/synthetic
material and therefore very lightweight, the
Box-FS is an ideal solution to attach the
FireStore below the camera. The camera,
together with the FireStore holder can still
be used handheld or fastened to the tripod.
Should you want to work without a tripod,
the Box-FS serves as an additional brace
surface and provides protection for the
camera. The FireStore fits in the drawer both with the small and with the large battery.
Even though the fan slots are vacant, sound recordings are in no way interfered, because
the FireStore holder is under the camera.
◆ The Box-FS mounts underneath your camera allowing you to keep your FireStore protected
when shooting. You’ll still be able to use the camera on a tripod with a pin and 1/4” screw.
◆ The cage features a sliding drawer for easy access to the FireStore. It features a locking
mechanism to ensure that the DTE remains in place during recording.
◆ The Box-FS is designed to work with any camcorder. It connects via a standard tripod mount.

camera the best possible protection while

Although they have a practical operating depth of 30’, these flexible housings can be
successfully taken much lower with no damage to the housing. The depth limitation is due to
the design of the actual camcorder. For example, water pressure exerted on a flexible housing
causes the housing to compress. This compression effects various protruding camera controls
such as a shutter button, on/off switch, or zoom button. Those designed with greater protruding
controls will be even more adversely effected with “sticking” control buttons in less depths of
water. Depth operation is dependent upon the construction of the camera and not the housing.

DISCOVERY 10 ARC LIGHT
Ultra Compact Video Arc Light with
10-watt HID Metal Halide Bulb
The preferred source for underwater video, the output of a High-Intensity
Discharge (HID) lamp has a color temperature of 6000º- 7500º Kelvin which is
daylight condition temperature—needed to bring out the true natural colors of
the underwater world. This is significantly higher and much whiter than that of
a typical quartz-halogen light whose color temperature is 3000º Kelvin.
Quartz halogen bulbs, which are normally yellow in color, have the tendency of decreasing in brightness as the battery voltage drops. HID light
combined with its electronic ballast will keep the output light temperature constant even though the batteries voltage drops. The ballast is capable of
drawing less current and keeping lamp at it highest brightness. Due to the large difference in color temperature between the 10w HID Lamp and a 30w
Halogen bulb, the perceived output and penetration of the 10-watt HID light is greatly noticeable.
Featuring a compact all-in-one design, this lightweight light is rated up to 330’ and is compatible with all Amphibico housings. It comes with a 15”
adjustable ball joint extension arm, dual O-ring seal, and video glass reflector with diffused glass (no hot spots, wide angle, and is compatible with
52mm screw-on filters such as neutral density or color correction to control the light). Up to 2 hours continuous burn time on two fully-charged
NP-F550 or NP-F570 batteries. (Batteries and charger not included)

UNDERWATER HOUSINGS
For over 38 years Gates has designed and manufactured
the world’s most durable, reliable and dependable
underwater housings. They use ‘bulletproof’ machined
aluminum,100% mechanical controls, time-proven
design methods, and state-of-the-art manufacturing.
Built to satisfy the most demanding requirements of
commercial divers, marine researchers, professional
videographers, salvage operators, military divers, film and TV producers, recreational divers and imaging professionals—
Gates housings deliver results 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
THEY ALL FEATURE
◆ All housings are depth rated to 450’ (137 meters)
◆ Housings are born of the same technical expertise that won an Emmy
for Technical Achievement.
◆ “Bulletproof” machined aluminum and black type III ‘hard’ anodize
finish imparts a robust, military-grade finish on the housings. They
will withstand abusive handling, scratches, and impacts – just about
anything you can reasonably throw at it and still look great. Nickel
acetate seals the aluminum pores and makes the housing impervious
to attack by salt water or other corrosive elements.
◆ Bayonet mounted ports allow quick and easy switching among Flat,
Dome, Wide and Super Wide Angle ports, enabling the clearest,
sharpest images possible.
◆ Reliable fingertip controls are 100%
mechanical — no sticky buttons,
faulty electronics or dead batteries.
◆ Quality optics means clarity, sharpness and no vignetting (cutoff dark
corners) to spoil your images.
◆ Positive lock stainless steel latches confirm the housing is sealed
and secure.
◆ 2-year renewable warranty on all housings.

Gates Underwater Ports
The best camera in the world can’t make up for poor optics. This mantra is
the driving force behind the Gates family of ports. The finest underwater
images simply require the finest optics. While this may seem obvious, poor
optical design and materials introduce compromises -- distortions, low
resolution, and ultimately inferior images. With Gates standard and
precision ports, there are no compromises . They are superior optical
products, and won’t limit the capabilities of your camera. High-resolution
and distortion-free, they represent the finest optics available for
underwater imaging. Professional to amateur, super wide to macro, the Gates family of ports represent a variety of
features and optical designs to suit a wide range of needs, conditions and experience.
Port Types - A Selection Guide
When selecting a port for use with your Gates
housing, the most important questions relate

UNDERWATER PORTS
Flat (Macro) Port
Capturing the world of ‘small’ requires a
macro port, which can reveal amazing
colors and behaviors of tiny underwater
critters. Macro imaging starts at subjects
about 1.5” and smaller.
The Flat (Macro) Port – contain a single,
flat, uncorrected element. The field of
view becomes narrowed underwater, subject to the same refraction as a
diver looking through a facemask. It allows full camera zoom capability,
and accommodates diopters to increase the magnification of a macro
subject. The Flat Port contains a single optical acrylic element that is
forgiving to minor bumps and handling, and it is field replaceable.

Wide Angle Ports
Contain several lens elements to encompass
a larger underwater view. It is the most
commonly used port as it affords a very
broad field of view and large depth-of-field.
Vignette free, they have little or no zoom
capability (that capability is available on the
Super Wide Angle port). Gates offers two
versions of Wide Angle ports, the GP Series and Precision Series.
GP Series ports have a tough aluminum shell and a field-replaceable
optical polycarbonate dome. They feature anti-reflective coating for
very good image resolution, and their field of view is approximately 70°
depending on the camera/port combination. They can be used in the
air and water and for air/water split shots. Ideal choice for extreme use
conditions or when field replacement of a damaged dome is necessary.
Precision Series wide angle ports are made of BK-7 optical-grade glass,
are coated with a proprietary anti-reflective coating, and then nitrogen
purged/vacuum-sealed into an aluminum shell to provide the sharpest,
clearest underwater images possible. The field-of-view is 70° to 90°
depending on the camera/port combination. They are free of distortion
and are very high resolution – the ideal choice for TV / DVD production.
The front dome element has a hard coating and is protected by a shade,
it is not field replaceable, so care must be exercised to avoid contact
with sharp objects (like coral).

PDX10/PD100, PC and MC Series Housings .............................................580.00
Standard (Dome) Ports
Standard Ports (sometimes called a dome
port) are optically corrected to provide a
normalized view of the underwater world.
That is, they compensate for distortions or
magnifications inherent to the underwater
realm so the camera view below water is
almost exactly that above water. A
Standard Port is made of optical polycarbonate, acrylic or glass and
allows little or no zoom-through capability. Resilient field replaceable
dome is forgiving to bumps and handling.
The Standard Port is only recommended as a budget option, or for use
with third party lenses such as the Century Optics or Sony adapter
lenses. An A/R coated glass dome rated to 150’ is also available.

Super Wide Ports
One of world’s finest underwater optics,
Super Wide Ports provide a super wide 110°
with full zoom-through capability. Now you
can capture big creatures at 110° super
wide field of view, then zoom to maximum
telephoto and fill the frame with a mere 1.5”
subject. Furthermore, they can be used in
both air and water, as well as “split” air/water images.
The ports are constructed entirely of BK-7 optical glass elements and
coated with a proprietary High Efficiency Broad Band Anti-Reflective
(HEBBAR) coating for maximum light transmission. They are then
nitrogen purged/vacuum sealed in a dust-free environment, ensuring
no foreign matter or condensation to spoil your image. The optics are
analyzed and tested for compatibility with HD cameras to ensure no
degradation of image quality.
While the front dome element has a hard AR coating and protected by a
shade, it is not field replaceable. Care must be exercised to avoid contact with sharp objects (like coral).
