The MDX-6D Underwater Housing from Sea & Sea is a waterproof case for the Canon EOS 6D DSLR camera. The convenient quick shoe makes it easy to install and remove the camera. The housing has a depth rating of 328'. Mechanical controls provide access to virtually all camera functions. With both hands on the ergonomic grips, you can easily reach both the main and sub-command dials, as well as video recording controls. Additionally, the rear buttons are angled for ease of use.

Built for durability, the housing is precision machined from a solid block of anodized aluminum alloy for corrosion resistance. It requires one of several interchangeable lens ports, which fit a broad range of different lenses and are available separately. For compatibility, see Port Chart.

The internal YS Converter/C comes pre-installed. This device allows you to switch between TTL and manual flash exposure control with optional, external YS series strobes. When using these, either the 5-pin Sync Cord/N for one strobe or the 5-pin Dual Sync Cord/N for two is required. You can even use two dual sync cords to connect 4 external strobes. Instead of the YS Converter, you may choose to use the supplied 2-pin sync cord connector (#50122), which enables direct attachment of sync cords for strobes.

The housing includes a 0.5x optical viewfinder and is also compatible with two optional OVFs offering 1.2x magnification. The built-in leak sensor mount allows you to attach the supplied moisture alarm, which senses when a breach occurs in the housing's waterproof seal and notifies you immediately.

TTL and Manual Flash Exposure
The internal YS Converter/C is pre-installed in the housing. It allows you to switch between TTL and manual flash exposure control with optional, external YS series strobes. When using these, either the 5-pin Sync Cord/N for one strobe or the 5-pin Dual Sync Cord/N for two is required. You can even use two dual sync cords to connect 4 external strobes. Instead of the YS Converter, you may choose to use the supplied sync cord connector (#50122), which enables direct attachment of sync cords for manual strobe exposure. It has a 2-pin input and a 5-pin output. Strobes compatible with the housing include the YS-D1, YS-110a, YS-110, YS-250, YS-120, YS-60 and YS-90
Optical Viewfinders
An optical viewfinder providing 0.5x magnification is supplied. Optional VF180 straight prism finder with 1.2x magnification can be attached by replacing original VF. Will not sacrifice field of view. Contains 8 elements in 6 groups, which help reproduce natural colors. Eyepiece guard/hood blocks unwanted light for better visibility. Additionally, nitrogen gas prevents condensation and fogging. Optional VF45 prism finder offers same 1.2x magnification and full field of view, and also replaces original VF. Rotates 360° in increments of 90°, and is especially designed for situations where subject is below you, such as in macro work. Eyepiece guard/hood stops stray light from entering. Since info button may be difficult to access with VF45 installed, the VF180 is more highly recommended
