The C9 range of compact monochrome and colour underwater cameras utilise industry leading Sony CMOS sensors with a GigE Vision compliant Gigabit Ethernet interface and global electronic shutter with exposure control. The camera has a wide input voltage range of 10–36VDC or 17–72VDC (PoE) and a wide operating temperature range.

Particular care was taken with the optical design of the water corrected optics to ensure both wide angle viewing and minimal or no distortion through the fully optically corrected front viewing port. Developed for ROV use, the cameras are designed to be as rugged and durable as possible. An anodised aluminium housing rated to 2000m is supplied as standard, with a 6000m rated titanium housing available as an option.
