The Aquatica Underwater Housing with Double Nikonos Bulkheads for the Canon 5D Mark II camera features Aquatica's new Aqua View Finder which employs a high-quality coated glass element to deliver a bright, crisp image of the camera viewfinder, a design that allows for quick removal for storage and transportation, a body of anodized aluminum, and exposed glass made of corrosion-resistant material. The viewing area is 100% of the actual DSLR finder with easy diopter adjustments, and LCD information in the camera's viewfinder is readily available when shooting.

The camera housing is machined from a solid block of anodized aluminum that's coated with polyurethane powder paint and clear coated. Lenses from fisheye to 200mm macro can be used with it. You can quickly change lenses with the bayonet system and the lens release button on the front of the housing. Double 2-pin Nikonos bulkheads allow you to connect two manually controlled strobes with two standard Nikonos single sync cords to the housing. You'll always be sure your lens port is securely locked and watertight with its positive mounting and locking mechanism. Chromatic aberrations are greatly reduced for precise focusing and composition.

Note: Requires Lens port
Also Note: Most zoom lenses require a close-up diopter filter to correct focus distance.

Standard Nikonos Type Bulkheads
External manual flash-ready using 2 single Nikonos-type sync cords
Positive bayonet mounting and locking mechanism leaves no doubt that your ports are securely in place and are watertight. The bayonet system dome, macro ports and extension rings offer the fastest access to lenses for rapid changing without having to remove the camera from the housing.
