The Equinox Underwater Housing for Canon 5D Mark III Digital Camera and EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM Lens is a waterproof enclosure designed to contain your Canon 5D Mark III digital SLR camera with an EF 16-35mm f/2.8L USM lens attached. It has a depth rating of 250' (76.2 m), enabling you to dive down deep for underwater exploration.

The housing enables access to the important camera functions via mechanical controls, including On / Off, Shutter, Menu, Menu Select & Scroll, Set, Start / Stop, Mode, Manual Focus, Auto Focus, Manual Zoom, ISO, White Balance, Q and dials. A flash is not usable with the housing, as the space inside is too tight to fit one. The housing is equipped with a BRS / Ballast Release System, which serves a dual purpose: Easy travel and fast transport to the surface, should you run into trouble during your underwater video adventure. Simply pull on the quick release pin on one of the wings and the wing and ballast/handle are released; the housing now becomes positive in buoyancy and shoots to the surface.

The housing is made of a durable, thermal-based polyvinyl carbonate, features an integrated 6" (15.2 cm) dome port, and is neutrally buoyant, due in part to its 2 lb (0.9 kg) internal half-moon weight. If you wish to attach a strobe, you can do so via an optional external strobe connector (not included), which can be added by sending your housing--along with the strobe(s) you wish to use--to Equinox for installation after purchase. As the 5D Mark III camera has no built-in flash, and an accessory flash will not fit inside the housing, you would need an optional sync cord (not included) in order to use a strobe.
