SEA&SEA has unveiled a new underwater housing for Canon EOS 5D Mark IV And III digital 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.
