The SCU-30 (Formerly the Alexa) is Scubacam's longest housing for large form factor cameras, such as the ARRI AMIRA, the ARRI ALEXA and ALEXA LF, the Phantom Flex4Kas well as larger builds with the ARRI ALEXA 35, Mini LF, the Sony Venice (1 and 2), or the RED V-Raptor XL



Base price: £2695



Compatible with all our Rigging & Support accessories, and customisable with any required Inputs & Outputs



A recommended configuration can be found here for this housing


The SCU-30 is Scubacam’s largest housing, originally intended to fit the then-new ARRI ALEXA, but it remains popular for it's large internal clearance for more modern cameras built in larger rigs such as the ARRI ALEXA 35, ALEXA Mini or Mini LF, the RED V-Raptor XL or Sony Venice 2.


The 120x150mm optical glass front port is big enough to accept all common lenses with a front diameter of up to 120mm, which covers all but the largest of zoom lenses and widest of primes.


There is plenty of space around the lens once installed to accommodate a 3 channel lens control system when using an LCS input; and with 700mm of internal clearance gives plenty of space for long lenses, large camera bodies, and most other accessories found on a typical "dry" camera rig.


While smaller cameras fit, due to the increased weight of the SCU-30 we recommend the SCU-50 for more compact rigs.
