An underwater housing made by Hugyfot (sometimes called Hugy Fot) for the Bolex EL (electric) 16mm cine camera.

Beginning in 1957, the company manufactured its first underwater housings for motion-picture cameras, mostly for Bolex, Bauer, Beaulieu, Camex, Eumig and Nizo cameras. The production of these housings was mostly based on individual orders. They were delivered to customers (including the BBC) in more than 36 countries. An English customer, Steve McMillan, wrote: 'Your housing is made like a Rolls-Royce!'
