If the Canon EOS 5D Mark IV and III digital cameras are your go-to’s for great pictures, and you’ve begun to ply your increasingly expensive hobby underwater, SEA&SEA may have just the housing for you.
SEA&SEA recently unveiled the MDX-5D Mark IV underwater housing, built specifically for those types of Canon cameras.
The new housing features a pair of fiber-optic cable sockets, an N-Type (2-pin) connector, and two Sacrificial Zinc Diodes (front and rear). It’s compatible with optional VF45 and VF180 view finders, and sports a built-in leak detector sensor.
The body of the housing is made of a machined, corrosion-resistant aluminum alloy, and the grips consist of a corrosion-resistant die-cast aluminum alloy.
Without the camera, it weighs approximately approximately 3,000 grams/106 ounces, has a depth rating of 100 meters/330 feet, and is compatible with SEA&SEA Strobes, the Sea Arm 8, the Fiber-Optic Cable II, Electronic Sync Cords, and the Leak Sentinel vacuum pump system.
Most of the levers and buttons will glow in a dark environment, and you’ll be able to switch lenses and ports between dives without removing the back of the housing.
The new housing retails for US$3,900/3,683 Euros. For more information, check out the SEA&SEA website at seaandsea.com.
