This Elite 5D III Underwater Sport Housing from AquaTech is a waterproof case for the Canon 5D Mark III DSLR camera. It has a depth rating of 33'. The housing features mechanical controls that provide access to important camera functions, including AF-On, start/stop video recording, video/stills switch, Q menu, right multi-controller, set button, zoom in, playback, autofocus point button, rear control dial and shutter.
The body of the case is constructed from durable polyurethane and the controls are made of stainless steel, anodized aluminum and high-strength plastic. The Elite 5D III accepts interchangeable lens ports for a broad array of Canon wide-angle, standard and telephoto lenses, including primes and zooms (port required and sold separately). Housing buoyancy is slightly positive.
The Elite 5D III is compatible with external flashes, and supports eTTL exposure control with the Canon 580 EX II in Strike 580 Flash Housing and Canon 600EX RT in Strike 600 Flash Housing (sold separately). Each of these flashes includes a 6-pin sync cable, and their housings provide push button controls enabling access to necessary flash functions.
The housing has rear quick-release clips with safety latches and features an ergonomic side grip for improved handling and stability underwater. It's also configured with dual standard tripod mounts: one 1/4"-20 and one 3/8"-16. A camera plate and tool kit are included.
